Sage 200 2010 is due for launch at the end of June 2010 and delivers a lot of new features to enhance the existing Sage 200 Suite. Â The latest version has three key themes:
Gartner, the world’s leading information technology research and advisory company, identified hyper speed and hyper connectivity as key emerging trends in the lower mid-market.Â Hyper speed is about improved integration and accessibility of information within a business, enabling smarter and faster decisions.Â Hyper connectivity is more focused on accessing data from outside the business.Â It opens up a world where users can respond immediately and flexibly to different situations and access key information wherever they are.Â To that end, Sage 200 2010 delivers Sage 200 Mobile and email authorisation for purchase orders, allowing for a more flexible, accessible Sage 200 Suite.
Sage 200 2010 makes information within the Sage 200 Suite better available to users in their day-to-day roles. The new version introduces the new Sage Report Designer, more additional workspaces in the desktop and the new Sage 200 Mobile solution which uses out-of-the-box workspaces on a Blackberry device.
From listening to customer feedback and wish lists, several improvements have been made to the new Sage 200 2010.Â Sage 200 Project Accounting performance has been improved as well as improved integration with Sage 200 CRM. Â In addition all the new features of Sage CRM v7 have been added.
Top New Features of Sage 200 2010
Sage 200 Mobile
The emergence of the mobile workforce is changing the face of business.Â People can now communicate wherever they are and this opens up new ways of working and new markets.Â With the release of Sage 200 2010, data is now accessible to view and search via the BlackBerry 9000 series, as well as 8900 and 8520.Â Sage 200 Mobile allows customers to work smarter enabling a more productive workforce that is more cost effective, as a result.Â The business can free up the workforce by mobilising and exposing essential back-office data to offsite staff, to allow them to be more responsive.
New Sage Report Designer
The Sage Report Designer is incorporated in to the Sage 200 Suite.Â Most reports will be migrated across to the new report designer, but the old report designer will still be provided to run alongside the new one to allow you to amend/upgrade customised reports.Â The new report designer and underlying report layer are easier to use and more intuitive, giving a better user-experience.
Better Purchase Order Authorisation
Sage 200 2010 users will now have full control over their authorisation processes.Â This makes the order process more secure, yet with a flexible enough approach to meet your needs.Â Users can also get email alerts about orders needing authorisation, so purchase orders are not held up when people are out of the office.
Improved Sage 200 Project Accounting Reporting
The ability to create new reports within Project Accounting has been added, along with six new reports:
- Cost Transaction Report
- Revenue Transaction Report
- Nominal Transaction Report
- Cost Analysis Transaction Report (by group or structure)
- Revenue Analysis Report (by group of structure)
- Profitability Transaction Report (by group of structure)
CRM Integration – Hidden Account Entity
Following feedback from customers, the account entity in Sage 200 CRM has now been hidden, for Sage 200 2010.Â This provides smooth end-to-end processing from the CRM interface through to the back office in Sage 200.
Analysis Code Alignment
Analysis codes have been streamlined across modules for Sage 200 2010 release, with each area now having up to 20 analysis codes.Â All analysis codes in Sage 200 are now formulated in the same manner and held against individual module records so reporting on these codes will be far easier.Â This allows you to easily get the information out of the system that you require.
