Business Alerts

Is your business looking for a more efficient way to monitor the pulse of your company? Discover Business Alerts, an impressive module designed to keep you and your personnel “in the know.” This innovative product utilizes your e-mail system to notify you whenever something significant happens in your Sage MAS 90 or Sage MAS 200 ERP system. The notifications that you choose to generate can be selected from a series of sample alerts, which can quickly be tailored to suit your specific needs. Or you may choose to create custom alerts based on your company’s unique needs.

In addition to keeping your staff better informed, Business Alerts can also send e-mail notifications to your customers and vendors. This feature is especially useful for sending past due billing notices, shipping notices, low inventory alerts, and more.

Visual Integrator

Open architecture is the catch phrase for business application software and databases these days. Companies that in the past may have put up with discrete applications running standalone, and performed software “gymnastics” to obtain integrated reporting from their tools, are now demanding that these products work together.

Visual Integrator has been designed to facilitate seamless integration between your other business applications and the data in your Sage MAS 90 or Sage MAS 200 ERP system. Visual Integrator can import from (or export to) any ODBC-compliant source, without the need for an intermediary data file such as ASCII delimited or Microsoft Excel.

If you regularly perform imports from a custom or vertical software package, you’ll find you can use Visual Integrator to make the integration virtually seamless.

Custom Office

To stay competitive, you need your accounting and ERP software to work together with your business productivity software, and offer indispensable functions like graphical reporting, integration, customization, and drilldown functionality. The Sage MAS 90 and Sage MAS 200 Custom Office module provides the solution with a suite of tools composed of Visual PostMaster, Customizer, and the MS Office Link that integrates with the Microsoft Office suite.

The MS Office Link allows you to easily create letters or messages to individual customers or vendors. You can attach documents (such as scanned images) to specific records in the product’s data files (for example, a photograph to an inventory item or an invoice to the invoice record in Accounts Payable history). With Visual PostMaster, you can create batch mailing jobs and marketing campaigns. Customizer provides user-defined fields (UDFs) that you can easily implement without any special programming skills.
