Customizing Sage 500 (MAS 500)

There are a number of options available for customizing your Sage 500 (MAS 500) system to meet your unique needs. Many customization options can be accomplished using standard features and tools that come with these robust systems. Other options may require the modification of the standard software source code, a process which Kissinger can assist you with as a Sage-licensed Master Developer.
