It’s time to connect your existing systems to the cloud

Pay as you go with Sage 100cloud to get all the features of cloud connectivity without giving up the benefits of your on-premise or hosted solution. Whether your current Sage 100 solution is highly customized or not, you can take advantage of new cloud-connected capabilities:

  • Take advantage of rapid product innovation while upgrading on your own schedule
  • Easily configure your application settings, or heavily customize your environment thanks to an open code base
  • Increase collaboration through mobile access to relevant information without sacrificing the feature-rich experience of a native application.
  • Subscription pricing means you can avoid upfront costs and pay in a way that makes sense for your business

Take control of your budget planning process

Bring strategic insight to business planning with Budgeting and Planning for Sage 100cloud, an enterprise-wide, purpose-built, budgeting, and planning application. Make quicker, more informed decisions by shortening budgeting and planning cycles. Optimize your planning process and increase collaboration across business lines by clearly
connecting budgeting activities to organizational performance.

Improve inventory management

Inventory Advisor Basics for Sage 100cloud helps smaller retail and distribution businesses to establish and maintain high impact inventory
management practices. This lighter version of Sage Inventory Advisor connects directly to Sage 100cloud, helping users minimize stock-outs, reduce excess, and produce optimal orders quickly.

Track inventory in multiple locations

DSD / ScanForce Multi-Bin Management for Sage 100cloud extends the warehousing capabilities of Sage 100cloud to include the designation, storage, and distribution of a single inventory item in multiple “bin” locations within a warehouse. Set customer or item specific restrictions based on bin location, perform on-the-fly bin location transfers, set minimum and maximum location quantities, and much more.

Be More Confident

Reduce risk and increase compliance with cloud-connected services.

Automate bank reconciliation

Sage 100cloud simplifies the reconciliation process by allowing users to connect directly to their bank feeds and automate transaction matching so that disparities are identified and flagged as they happen. Increase efficiency, decrease risk and be more responsive to accounting discrepancies as they arise.

Increase government reporting efficiency

Preparing certified payroll reports can be time-consuming and error-prone at the best of times, let alone when a single contractor has multiple projects that cut across state lines. With Sage 100cloud you can easily flag information for inclusion as part of Certified Payroll Reports. Automatically generate Certified Payroll Reports using the Sage 100 Payroll add on module.

Be More Agile

You need a business management solution that is flexible enough to meet your needs as you respond to opportunities and challenges in a constantly
changing world.

your brand and promote a greater sense of pride in the ways that you do business.

Get the information you need, where you need it
