…Marsha Roudabush! Congratulations, Marsha!
The Phantom Drone Quadcopter giveaway was just one of the attractions at the IN-SYNCH Web-Stor booth at Sage Summit this year.
We are super excited for Marsha to take this heavy duty bad boy out for a spin. And if she gets a GoPro to go with it, we might see some cool video!
When you visit IN-SYNCH Web-Stor (booth #720) at Sage Summit 2014, you’re surrounded by a lot of Sage software experience. Like more than a century of Sage software experience, when you add it all up. It’s a fun fact, but it’s also a serious differentiator for the IN-SYNCH Web-Stor product line.
When all the years spent working with Sage are added up among the IN-SYNCH Web-Stor principals, it totals 108 years of experience! (And the 108 years is before you add in the other technical people and staff of each company.)
Join us for lunch at Summit!
Representatives from Silver Sponsor IN-SYNCH Web-Stor will be hosting a roundtable discussion that includes an overview of the newly launched IN-SYNCH Web-Stor product line on Wednesday (7/30) from 12:00 – 2:00. We’ll be having lunch and discussing:
- The history and make up of the IN-SYNCH Web-Stor product line
- Why customers prefer our method of integrating into Sage 100
- The opportunities that a trusted e-commerce integration solution offers both partners and clients
- Anything else you’d like to discuss!
This is a great session for seasoned partners and those looking to find out more. There are only 8 seats available, and they’re filling fast! If you’d like to participate in an informative discussion with us and your peers over lunch, Sign up today!
Oh, and you don’t have to wait for Summit- Submit your questions or anything that you’d like to learn more about in the comments section below.
The countdown is on and Sage Summit is right around the corner! This year brings a re-designed Summit experience with lots that is new. For the first time ever, Sage Summit is being promoted as an opportunity for anyone who wants to learn and share ideas, whether they use Sage products or not. Adding to the excitement of the event is the top-notch list of speakers who will share their time with Summit attendees at all kinds of speaker sessions and learning opportunities.
Here’s a rundown of the featured speakers who will be “wow-ing” the audience with insights from their careers and success:
OK, this is pretty cool and we’re excited to share it with you: We’ll be giving away a Phantom Drone Quadcopter from DJI at the IN-SYNCH Web-Stor booth at Sage Summit! Would you like to be the lucky visitor that stops by and wins it?

DJI’s Phantom Quadcopter is the gear of choice for next-generation filmmakers, extreme sports enthusiasts and R/C hobbyists. (Know anyone who wouldn’t have fun flying it?) Despite all the advanced functions, it’s easy to learn, so if you’ve never before owned an outdoor helicopter, this is the place to start.
This model is a heavy-duty drone, with a mount that’s able to carry a GoPro or DSLR camera. And with innovative features such as Intelligent Orientation Control, automatic navigation back to home, and a sleek, integrated design, you’ll see for yourself why the Phantom is the rig used by pros and beginners alike.

Last year, Amazon made more than $61 billion in net sales.1
Are you using the online retailing power of Amazon.com to sell your products directly to customers? The Amazon Marketplace Connector for EDI Advantage gives you the ability to automatically integrate Amazon Marketplace orders with your Sage 100 ERP system.
The Amazon Marketplace Connector for EDI Advantage brings Amazon Marketplace orders right into Sage 100 and notifies Amazon when orders have been fulfilled (so you can get paid). It can be automated or initiated on demand.
- Automatically downloads Amazon Marketplace orders
- You receive orders in your Document Express inbox
- Integrates orders into Sage 100 ERP as Sales Orders
- Automatically sends shipping acknowledgement to Amazon.com
- Includes connectivity services, training, and support
But…is this EDI with Amazon?
You might be asking yourself whether we’re talking about EDI or something else. In other words, what’s the difference between the Amazon Marketplace Connector and traditional EDI? The answer lies in understanding the difference between selling THROUGH Amazon.com vs. selling TO Amazon.com.
Selling THROUGH Amazon.com vs. Selling TO Amazon.com
When you sell products THROUGH Amazon.com, you establish a merchant account with Amazon and use the Amazon.com site to offer your products directly to Amazon.com shoppers. This is selling THROUGH Amazon.com and doesn’t require the use of EDI, but does require the Amazon Marketplace Connector for EDI Advantage to automate the integration of orders you receive.
Selling your products TO Amazon.com means that Amazon is your buyer, and Amazon will present your products on their site because Amazon is buying them from you. Selling TO Amazon.com represents the more traditional ‘trading partner’ relationship between your company and Amazon.com and does require the use of EDI.
Ready to open a new market?
If you aren’t already selling through Amazon.com, it could open up a whole new world of customers for your products. And if you already participate in this sales channel, Sage 100 integration will make it even better.
And if this is all new to you…
We can help you more. You might like to have help with setting up your Amazon Marketplace Merchant ID, Product Listings and Amazon Product Preapprovals (as needed). Or you might need a hand with setting up customized shipping rates for your products to replace the default Amazon shipping rates that apply to all newly established merchant accounts.
Contact us if you’d like more information.
