Could your business benefit from going mobile?
With more than 50% of Americans using smartphones1, it’s likely that more and more employees will expect to use mobile devices like smartphones as part of their work in the future, if they don’t already.
More and more companies use mobile devices and apps to do business. It’s only a matter of time before mobile technology becomes as commonplace as the personal computer and the fax machine were in their own times.
That’s why we offer Sage Mobile Solutions to Sage 100 and 500 ERP users. These solutions help companies tie their Sage ERP data to mobile apps, allowing them to sell from any location, accept payments online, and provide better service.
On April 20, 2015, the Sage Inspire Tour touches down again in New York City at The Roosevelt Hotel on 45th Street. As the Sage Inspire Tour makes its way back to our neck of the woods, we encourage all Sage users within driving distance to attend.
It’s a great opportunity to see the newest Sage solutions, learn about tackling real business challenges, and ask the minds behind Sage the questions that are important to you as a Sage ERP user.
This year’s Sage Summit has been announced!
The annual trade show event will take place this year at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, LA from July 27-30, 2015. As before, this Summit will bring Sage business partners and customers together for information sessions, networking, and sharing ideas. Previous Summits have been held in Washington, D.C., Nashville, TN, and Denver, CO.
As a Gold Development Partner for Sage, we love attending to share our latest solutions and get face time with customers and new companies!
Last year in Las Vegas, we partnered with ROI Consulting, Simplicity Consulting, and Clearnine to exhibit IN-SYNCH Web-Stor solutions (IN-SYNCH Web-Stor Connect and IN-SYNCH Web-Stor 100). We had a great time talking with so many Sage 100 business partners and users about website integration solutions.
Here are some of the highlights from Kissinger’s experience at Sage Summit 2014:
Sage recently updated the Sage Mobile Sales app with new features and compatibility with Windows Surface Pro tablets and touchscreen PCs or laptops, in addition to iPads and the iPad Mini.* The new version is available in the Apple and Microsoft app stores.
Sage Mobile Sales is a Sage Mobile Solution that empowers sales reps and managers with the ability to take orders, collect payments, and enter them directly into the ERP anytime and anywhere through a mobile device.
The updates to the solution include:
Kissinger enhancements (ACH Direct, AIA Job Cost Billing, Certified Payroll, EDI Advantage, and Union Automation) are compliant with Sage’s 2014 Interim Release Download (IRD) and 2015 First Quarter Tax Table Update (TTU). No compliance fixes are necessary. You can install the 2014 IRD and 2015 Q1 TTU on your Sage 100 ERP system without needing to install or reinstall Kissinger enhancements.
Check out our recent blog post for more info on the IRD and TTU, including which Sage 100 versions are compatible.
NOTE: If you have any customizations to your Sage 100 system, the 2014 IRD could affect these modifications. Contact the developers of any system modifications for more information.
If you ever need to download and install a Kissinger enhancement solution for any reason, you can log into the Customer Portal or Business Partner Portal. You’ll find the download for your solution(s) in the Licensed Software Downloads section. Contact Kissinger if you need access to either the Customer or Business Partner Portal.
Let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
As 2014 closes, we want to wish our customers and business partners happy holidays, and thank them for the opportunity to serve them. We have great customers! We appreciate the trust they place in us, and hope to strengthen that relationship even more in 2015.
Here’s something just for fun: If you’re gearing up for holiday cheer, check out this breakfast recipe. It’s one of our family’s favorites for Christmas morning, and will keep you and yours out of the kitchen, and able to spend more time with family and friends. If you try it, let us know what you think!
PLEASE NOTE: We’ll be closed on Thursday, December 25 and Friday, December 26. If you have a technical support request when we are closed, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Our team reviews support request emails at 9:00am ET and 1:00pm ET on holidays to ensure emergency issues receive an immediate response. We’ll respond to emails sent after 1:00pm and all non-emergencies on December 29.
On behalf of the team at Kissinger, I hope you enjoy a wonderful holiday season, and best of wishes for a prosperous 2015!
NOTE: If you are in charge of closing Sage 100 ERP for 2014, please be sure to review this post!
Sage will release the Sage 100 ERP 2015-Q1 Tax Table Update (TTU) and the 2014 Interim Release Download (IRD) next week (Dec 22 – 26).
These two updates from Sage affect users of the Accounts Payable and Payroll modules. The TTU contains important federal and state tax table changes, while the IRD updates your system to meet 2014 requirements for e-filing and reporting.
Year-end closing can be a hectic time for users of an accounting or ERP system. A successful year-end requires planning so you can produce accurate reports and prepare for the new fiscal year.
