The latest release of Sage 200 is due next month, August 2017 and will be branded as Sage 200c (connected). Sage regularly seeks feedback from its community to develop features that are important to its clients to make their business processes and daily tasks even easier. We’re pleased to share with you the new features:
- Invoicing – New Invoicing functionality in Financials will allow invoices to be raised without going through the Sales Order Processing.
- Purchase requisitions – New web-based Purchase Requisitions will provide an easier way to enter requisitions, authorise them and generate orders. There’s no requirement to know the nominal code, part number or supplier. Purchase Requisitions will be available via the web app in addition to My Purchase Requisitions workspace.
- Hide inactivity – Inactive customers, suppliers and dormant accounts can be hidden without deleting them, but kept for future reference.
- Error correction – Error correction functionality is enhanced to correct errors for Sales and Purchase Ledger transactions. You’ll be able to correct references, dates, nominal codes, VAT postings, exchange rates, etc. and retain a full history of your corrections.
- Data entry – Rapid data entry for Purchase Invoices – you will be able to enter these from a single screen using a grid entry form.
- Sage Bank Feeds – Sage Bank Feeds will be enabled through the software rather than using the Yodlee service. This is a free secure service that you can use to download your bank transactions to Sage 200, to help reconcile your bank account
- Detail – Sage 200c will offer greater detail when checking the progress of sales orders including allocation, allocated, acknowledgement, despatched, invoiced and cancelled.
- Analysis codes – Analysis codes will enable you to record information specific to your business on your nominal accounts. This can be an additional custom field on a record or for more in-depth reporting and analysis to cost centres and departments.
- Budget handling – Enhanced budget handling will enable you to hold multiple budget iterations and import budget information from Excel.
- Integration – with Microsoft Office 365.
