Sage has announced the release of Sage 100 and Sage 100cloud 2020.0. Let’s take a look at some of the top new features included in these latest versions.

Global Enhancements

Here are some of the top global enhancements that are carried throughout multiple modules:

Expanded Name Fields: Several fields have been expanded from 30 to 50 characters, including Customer Name, Customer Contact Name, Vendor Contact Name, Confirm To Name, and Requested by Name.

International Address Support: To support international business, several fields have been modified to support international addresses for customers, vendors, and contacts.

Multiple POs on a Single Receipt: Similar to the existing Multiple Sales Orders on One Invoice feature, you can now combine multiple POs into a single receipt (for Sage 100cloud only).

eInvoicing With Paya Connect

eInvoicing with Paya Connect combines click-to-pay functionality with a customer self-service payment portal, helping you save time through payment automation.  Your customers can use the payment link to make online credit card and ACH payments. If you’re using Paperless Office for invoicing, the invoice PDF is attached to the email. After customers make online payments, you can easily import them into Cash Receipts Entry.

Note: This feature is only available for Sage 100cloud and requires a merchant account with Paya (formerly Sage Payment Solutions).

New Reverse Check Run Utility

If you’ve ever processed a check run with the wrong information, you already know how much time and manual effort can be required to walk it back. Now, the new Reverse Check Run   Utility in Accounts Payable automates the reversal of checks or electronic payments created via the Check Printing and Electronic Payment Menu. This new feature, only available in Sage 100cloud, was a very popular request on the Sage 100 Ideas website.

Lot/Serial Expiration Dates

Expiration dates can now be added for items with lot or serial numbers when they are received into inventory or produced through a Bill of Materials. An important feature for manufacturers and distributors who deal with food & beverage, chemicals, and medical equipment, this represents the first phase of the Sage 100cloud lot/serial journey with tracking features coming soon.

These are just a few highlights. Sage 100 and Sage 100cloud 2020 include much more than we can cover in just one article.  For a complete list of new features and other important details, be sure to check out the 24-page What’s New document (PDF).
