Sage 300 2018

Sage 300 remains a popular ERP system with manufacturing customers. Many people were happy to see that Sage is once again updating Sage 300 and offering new, expanded functionality. What’s in store for you with Sage 300 2018? Many positive improvements with more good things to come!

The Big Sage 300 Improvements

Sage listens to their customers and makes improvements based on feedback. They focus on user experience, making great changes to design only when it makes sense to do so. Here’s a rundown of the big changes coming your way in 2018:

  • Both classic and web versions available and running in parallel: Each person in your company can choose the interface they like best. You don’t all need to be on the same interface—the person at the desk next to you can choose classic while you choose the latest web interface.
  • Microsoft Office 365 integration: The new connected ecosystem includes Sage Contacts Dashboards so that you can include contacts in one place.
  • Improved ad hoc inquiry: The web user interface enables ad hoc inquiries.
  • Customized folder structure and multiple browser support: More flexibility and customization built into your system.
  • Export declarations field: A new field has been added to the tax tab of the A/R and O/E Invoice Entry Screens that lets you enter an export declarations number right into the field. This is a requirement for some countries such as Singapore and Malaysia, and having the declarations number right in the system is a big help for many companies.

Special Updates for Sage 300 Classic

Classic lovers, don’t despair—these updates just refresh the streamlined system that makes Sage 300 so popular.

The big update to the Sage 300 classic screens is the update to the visual process and workflows. It’s been enhanced so it is easier to follow on screen. Redesigned buttons also make information easier to find and access. Instead of menus and toolbars, a ribbon now appears on the desktop. This is another feature aimed at making information easier to find. New themes are also available for visual process flows.

Sage 300 Intelligence Reporting

Another great feature of the Sage 300 2018 update is the new version includes Intelligence Reporting. Better reports enable you to make better business decisions.
