the results of their item count. Then to streamline entering the
results, the expected quantity can be set as the default, so only the
changes require an entry.
Increased Decimal Precision

decimal places, starting at raw materials and owing through your

of the decimal point. Cost of Good Sold, Inventory Counts, and
protability reports provide more granular nancial information and
more accurate data to your management team.

entering Inventory Transactions. Use Batch Entry with personalized
grids to match your workows, and efciently navigate to essential
information directly from the transaction entry screens. Select
specic lot or serial numbers or specify a range to increase
efciencies and reduce necessary keystrokes. Unique batch
numbers also provide independent updating and printing.
Simplify Standard Cost Adjustments
If you use the Standard Cost method to track your raw material
costs, the new Standard Cost Adjustment feature streamlines
the process by automatically calculating and posting the General
Ledger variances. This preserves the accuracy of your Inventory
value on hand and will give you an accurate and simplied audit trail.

In 4.4, you can carry inventory items with a $0.0 value to accurately account for manufacturing samples or vendor over-runs. The Inventory
Management Account in General Ledger will not be cluttered with $0.0 Standard Cost transactions.

personalize dual grids in their entry screens according to their preference and workow, select specic lot or serial ranges, and, by using unique
batch numbers, multiple users can enter transactions at the same time, printing and updating independently, without affecting other batches.
To help minimize data entry errors, the Purchase Order Variance Register calculates and prints before updating.
Auto-Generate Orders Selection
Improve and optimize your workow with new selection criteria, making it easier to quickly identify the Sales Orders you want to be available
for automatic purchase order generationincluding Sales Order Date, Customer Number, and Salesperson. New options ensure that critical
drop-ship sales order information is accurately communicated to the vendor. For example, if your customer requests that all his items are shipped
at one time to save shipping costs, your Order Entry Clerk can add a Sales Order Main Comment such as Ship Order Complete. That comment
then ows directly through to the Purchase Order Main Comment without rekeying. Also new in 4.4 is the ability to summarize by primary vendor
either select to roll up all orders for each primary vendor into a single Purchase Order (PO), or create individual POs for each item.
Informative Back Order Fill Reports
Handle backorders the way you want to. Identify your information quickly by sorting your Back Order Fill Report by Sales Order, Customer
Number, or Bill to Name. You can even choose to print only items received with a backordered quantity on a Sales Order, or all Sales Order
lines, to include all the Sales Order demand for the items you receive.
Greater Productivity with Batch Entry for Purchase Order Receipts, Returns, and Issues
Using batch entry, increase productivity and employee accountability for anyone entering purchase order transactions. With unique batch numbers,
more than one of your users can enter transactions at the same time, printing and updating independently, without affecting other batches.
Receipt Labels Print before Receipt of Goods Update
Now in 4.4, your warehouse personnel can print your Receipt Labels from Purchase Order Receipt of Goods, prior to updating the Receipt
of Goods Register. This allows your warehouse staff to cancel the Update and reprint the labels if they experience printing problems.
Enhanced Bar Code Features
Bar Code in 4.4 processes 15 types of Sage MAS 90 and 200 transactions for Sales Order, Inventory Management, Bill of Materials,
and more, streamlining warehouse processes by enabling your shipping and receiving staff to collect data rapidly and accurately.
Radio-frequency handhelds are supported, and now when you add important information to your items, sales orders, purchase
orders, or bills using user-dened elds (UDFs), it also ows through into your bar codes. For instance, if you add an
expiration date to serial or lot numbers, it prints and correctly scans during receipt of goods and sales order shipments.
Also, to simplify the resolution of import errors, a new Barcode Rejection Maintenance task provides clearly stated
reasons for the rejection, such as Invalid Item Codes or Insufcient Quantity Available.
Enhanced Bill of Materials Features
Get a more comprehensive and personalized view of information
using fewer keystrokes. The Bill of Materials Inquiry and Where
Used Inquiry programs have been enhanced in 4.4 to allow you
to see Single Level, Indented, or Summarized views in a list format,
with the ability to resize and sort. See the entire bill or its individual
components and their relationship at a glance. View Where Used
information, and see all components used in the current revision
or for all revisions by drilling directly into Item Maintenance or
Bill of Materials Maintenance. From within an inquiry screen, you
can see everything related to the billits subassemblies or its
componentswithout having to use more than one window,
saving time and streamlining the workow. Increase accuracy and
enhance your workow with the ability to print comments and
miscellaneous charges on your Picking Sheets.

Multiple Company Aged Invoice Report (similar to AP-1101)
You now have the flexibility to choose to print your Accounts Payable Aged Invoice report in a multi-
company format, and combine vendor information across all the companies you select. This can be
particularly useful if you have several companies, or unique operating units established as individual
companies, in your Sage ERP MAS 90 or 200 system. Youll get a complete picture of your vendors
across all your operating units with this new multi-company report. Identify opportunities for
improving your bottom-line, by negotiating better volume discounts, or consolidating your orders to
save on shipping and delivery charges.

Accounts Payable Check Sorting Options (similar to AP-1077)
In Accounts Payable, you can print checks alphabetically by vendor name, or continue to sort your
checks by vendor number. This flexibility allows you to group and mail checks for vendors that have
the same name and mailing location, but different vendor numbers across multiple divisions.
Consolidating your checks by vendor name may decrease your postage costs.

Expense Distribution Tables (similar to AP-1043)
Streamline the entry of your standard invoices in Accounts Payable when you need to regularly
allocate them across multiple departments. The new Expense Distribution Table feature allows you to
pre-define your GL account distribution and their percentages, removing the extra steps of keying in
the amounts separately each time an invoice needs to be paid. Utilizing up to six alphanumeric
characters, assign meaningful codes for your tables. For example, set up a table named RENT for your
monthly rent payments by allocating a percent of the $5,000.00 invoice to each of your 6
departments, using their GL codes. When creating a Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200 invoice you may select
one of the tables for your default distribution.

Security in Item Inquiry (similar to IM-1111)
To keep your company confidential information secure, four new permission settings can be used to
restrict unauthorized access. These new security events allow you the flexibility to prevent your order
entry personnel from accessing your standard cost information while still allowing them access to
price and the quantity on hand. You can also restrict access to your vendor information, including
vendor number and name, and specifics on receipts. New Inventory Management Role Maintenance

2
Inactive Items (similar to IM-1244)
You now have the flexibility in Inventory Management to designate an item as Inactive so it can no
longer be purchased or sold, while maintaining its associated information. Inactive Items will allow
you to process returns using RMA or a credit memo in Sales Order, or maintain history for warranty
purposes. This designation can also be used for your seasonal or holiday items that are available
only during certain periods of time. The new inactive functionality can be useful for a new product
line that you dont want to be sold until a specific launch date. Your exciting new products can be in
your system ready to be activated, and safeguarded from unintended early sales.

Physical Count with Count Cards (similar to IM-1119)
To assist you with conducting a physical count of diverse inventory in a large warehouse, you can
now more easily enter your individual count card information. This new functionality will help
prevent you from counting the same inventory twice, and is useful when you have the same items
located in multiple locations across your warehouse. When you enter your individually numbered
count card information, it can be more accurately tracked, and missing cards can be easily
spotted. To speed the data entry process, multiple users can enter information thats been noted
on your cards. Once youve entered all your count card information, your quantities can be
totaled by item for each warehouse, and you can make any necessary adjustments before
finalizing your Physical Count reports.

Company-Specific Background Colors (similar to LM-1028)
When you establish multiple companies within Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200, you can choose to assign
an easily identifiable background for each of the different companies. Color-coding is particularly
helpful to ensure entries are made in the correct company. In Company Maintenance you can select
these background colors from the normal Windows color-picker pallet, ranging from the basic
colors to the definition of custom colors. RGB values can also be entered to produce a specific color.
To see how your color selection will display when combined with text, a sample text box window is
displayed using your background color.

941 Form 2011 Update
Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200 4.4 Quarterly 941 eFiling and printing has been updated for the changes to
the 2011 IRS 941 Form (Rev. January 2011). Included is a new entry field for Tax Due on Unreported

Sage ERP MAS 90, 200, and 200 SQL 4.5 Release Guide

October 2011
OVERVIEW
The Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200 4.5 release focuses on providing compelling value to
existing customers, being more competitive in the marketplace, and providing a smooth
upgrade transition. Substantial value is provided to existing customers by addressing their
top enhancement requests, including the ability to add SageCRM licenses to Sage ERP
MAS 90, 200, and 200 SQL. To encourage adoption, all Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200
customers are eligible to receive a free SageCRM Server license and one free SageCRM
user license when upgrading to 4.5. The Business Framework will allow the flexibility to
provide current and new customers to choose ProvideX or Microsoft SQL Server. A
migration process is provided to assist Business Partners with upgrading Sage ERP MAS
200 for SQL 3.7x customers to Sage ERP MAS 200 SQL 4.5.
The main features and functionality enhancements in Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200 4.5 are in
Accounts Receivable, Payroll, Purchase Order, and Sales Order. These customer-
requested features and functionality were obtained through various feedback and evaluation
methods, including the Sage customer enhancement request website and user surveys.
Many of the new features that have been incorporated are similar to the main features and
functionality of 14 select Extended Solutions titles. Also, all 36 enhancements that have
been provided through the Product Updates for 4.4 are included in the 4.5 release.
Sage ERP MAS Intelligence has been enhanced in 4.5 to include Reporting Tree
capabilities and enhanced report distribution. With 4.5, Intelligence is also compatible with
the Sage ERP MAS 200 SQL product.
Current Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200 Extended Enterprise Suite customers are provided with
the equivalent 4.5 system on user-based pricing, and they have been merged into the core
product line with equivalent Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200 licenses and separate SageCRM
licenses. Both named and concurrent SageCRM licenses are available, although each
customer is required to choose one type of licensing. It is not possible to mix the two types
of licenses in one system. Customers on Business Care plans can stay current with the
SageCRM product release schedule.
Both new and existing customers will find immediate benefit to their business operations
from the tremendous enhancements in Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200 4.5. Sage will continue
to listen to our customers and partners and provide the functionality that is most important to
them. In 2012 in addition to customer-requested enhancements, Sage ERP MAS 90 and
200 Version 5.0 will focus on web-enabling the product to improve usability and allow
customers more mobile access and additional web-based integrations. We strongly
encourage customers running older versions of Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200 to plan to
upgrade to the most current release and begin taking advantage of all the benefits outlined
in this document.

AVAILABILITY
Sage ERP MAS 90, 200, and 200 SQL 4.5 Beta was held during the month of August. General
Availability and a new Early Adopter program for customers followed closely in early September
2011. The Auto-Delivery mailing and 4.5 download availability to Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200
Business Partners and the installed base customers are expected to begin the last week of October
2011.
NEW FUNCTIONALITY IN ACCOUNTS RECEIVABLE
NATI ONAL ACCOUNT MANAGEMENT
New features in 4.5 enable the creation of National Accounts in Accounts Receivable. This type of
customer account provides the ability to establish relationships between the one National Account,
typically a parent company, with multiple customer accounts, such as branches and subsidiaries.
National Accounts enables invoicing of the larger company for goods and services provided to
multiple locations, each with their own unique customer accounts. For example, these new features
and functionality gives a distributor the ability to ship their goods to one customer, and invoice the
National Account, rather than bill the Sold To customer account.




The new National Accounts
features and functionality in
4.5 provides the ability to
establish relationships
between a parent company
and branches or
subsidiaries assigned a
unique account. Goods and
services can be provided to
the associated Ship To
account while automatically
invoicing the Bill To
National Account.

ENHANCEMENTS TO PAYROLL
New key Payroll features and functionality were added in 4.5, to offer more flexibility, streamline the
data entry process, and provide more consistent and accurate calculations for deductions. The new
4.5 Payroll functionality includes five additional deduction calculation methods for processing payroll,
the ability to automatically perform deduction recalculations and set deductions based on earnings
type, provide enhanced Visual Integrator importing of common time management software formats
into Payroll Data Entry, and the ability to establish a minimum number of hours worked for benefit
accruals.
ADDI TI ONAL DEDUCTI ON CALCULATI ON METHODS
Five new calculation methods are available for Payroll deductions in 4.5 Based on Paid Hours,
Based on Pay Rate, Based on Regular plus Overtime hours, Percentage of Total Hours and
Percentage of Deduction Method. These additional calculation methods are often used for union
deductions and dues.
1) Based on Paid Hours will provide a calculation for the total hours worked multiplied by
the pay rate multiplier you choose.
2) Based on Pay Rate will calculate the selected pay rate multiplied by the number that is
entered.
3) Based on Regular plus Overtime Hours will automatically provide a calculation based
on the sum of regular and overtime hours multiplied by the pay rate.
4) Percentage of Total Hours will be calculated based on the total hours worked,
regardless of regular or overtime, multiplied by the percentage you establish.
When entering an
invoice, the National
Account informational
automatically populates
the necessary fields
youve previously
established
Sage ERP MAS 90, 200, and 200 SQL 4.5 Release Guide

October 2011

5) Percentage of Deduction Method will be calculated during tax calculation such as
Percentage of Net Wages and is only available for Employer Contributions.

Five new Payroll options are available in Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200 4.5 to offer more flexibility, streamline
the data entry process, and provide more consistent and accurate calculations for deductions.

Additional Payroll deduction
calculation methods are
available in 4.5.
If Percentage of Deduction
method is selected, an
additional field is displayed to
allow the selected code to be
entered.

October 2011


DEDUCTI ON RECALCULATI ON I N PAYROLL ENTRY
In Payroll Data Entry, workflow has been improved to automate the deductions based on changes in
the earnings line. You are able to automatically recalculate the deduction while still in data entry,
instead of deleting the information and then reentering. This will save valuable data entry time when
running employee payroll, particularly with the various payroll complexities that businesses face
today.


If Based on Pay Rate is
selected, an additional drop
down box is displayed to allow
the selected rate to be chosen.
Sage ERP MAS 90, 200, and 200 SQL 4.5 Release Guide

Page 12
October 2011



DEDUCTI ON CALCULATI ON BASED ON EARNI NGS TYPE
This new Payroll feature allows you to use payroll deduction codes according to a specified earnings
type in order to calculate based on Percent of Gross or Total Hours Worked. This allows an
employer to calculate benefits such as a Pension Plan and 401K contributions based only on
regular, sick and vacation earnings.



A new Earnings button is
available in 4.5 to allow the
selection of specific types to be
used for calculations.
Sage ERP MAS 90, 200, and 200 SQL 4.5 Release Guide

Page 13
October 2011

PAYROLL DATA ENTRY IMPORTI NG
Visual Integrator is enhanced in 4.5 to support importing a few of the more common labor
management and time tracking systems into Payroll Data Entry. This enhancement will be
particularly helpful when performing multiple data imports for regular, vacation, and sick time. File
layouts and sample imports are included for the five most popular data import formats: Fixed Field,
ADP, TimeBank/Kronos and TimeTrack.
Sample imports are included for:
o Format 2 Fixed Field Format
o Format 3 ADP Format
o Format 8 TimeBank or Kronos Connect Format with department number +
employee number imported
o Format 8 TimeBank or Kronos Connect Format with only employee number
imported
o Format M Fixed Field Format for Timetrack v8.0

ENHANCED BENEFI T ACCRUAL
New features and functionality have been added to benefit accrual processing in 4.5 that provides
the ability to manage accruals based on hours worked, which can be used to support salaried
employees, union employees, and part time employees. This new functionality uses the code
assigned to an employee, compares the Minimum Hours Required for Benefit Accrual with the hours
worked. If the conditions set are not achieved, then the accruals will not occur.

AUTOMATICALLY CREATE PURCHASE ORDERS FROM SALES
ORDERS
New 4.5 functionality will automatically create a Purchase Order from a Sales Order, allowing
customers to save time and reduce data entry errors. Information will flow through to a Purchase
Order without having to reenter the information, removing secondary data entry mistakes. For
companies who operate on a business model where they dont place an order from their suppliers
for particular items until they make a sale, this will be a big time savings. They will be able to preset
the conditions they want to use for the creation of Purchase Orders directly from the Sales Orders
process to flow efficiently by entering the selection criteria.

Sage ERP MAS 90, 200, and 200 SQL 4.5 Release Guide

Page 15
October 2011


NEW FEATURES AND FUNCTIONALITY IN SALES ORDER
The Sales Order module is enhanced in 4.5 with features and functionality in six main areas. Pricing
is available to be set by product line, by customer, and for total item quantities. At Sales Order entry,
distribution can be set by lot and serial number. Commission splits can be established by customer,
and by using a rate table to match salesperson, customer and item. Additional functionality is also
added for Sales Order integration with Job Cost.
PRI CE LEVEL BY CUSTOMER AND PRODUCT LI NE
This 4.5 enhancement allows a company to set default price levels for each of their customers
by product line. This allows them to make it easier to incent or reward their customers with
special discount pricing at the product line level, providing greater buying power for customers
who purchase a large quantity of many items across a product portfolio, and not just for a large
quantity of a specific product. Because discounts can be pre-set for each customer by price
code or by ship-to code, order entry staff will not be burdened with having to remember, or refer
to additional documentation, to determine the correct pricing discounts for customers.
Especially helpful for companies with a large inventory and wide variety of items, combined with
hundreds of customers, this flexibility will reward those customers and enable the company to
more effectively challenge competitive pricing pressures.

Preset the conditions you
want to use for the creation of
Purchase Orders directly
from Sales Orders, and
information will efficiently flow
through without having to
reenter into Purchase Order.

October 2011



PRI CI NG FLEXI BI LI TY FOR TOTAL ITEM QUANTI TI ES
Pricing flexibility was enhanced in 4.5 to include the ability to establish unit pricing based on the
grouping of items and how item totals are calculated. Totals and associated pricing are able to
be specified by the total of products in a product line, or the total for specific groups of products
in a product category, or by the total sum quantity on the order. This flexibility is especially
useful for manufacturers and distributors of products who offer many different colors and sizes
of the same items.
For example, a company with multiple retail store outlets wants to run a special on widgets and
widget accessories. They stock the widgets in four different sizes and 10 colors. Accessories
fall into six different product groups and number in the hundreds. In 4.5, they will be able to
discount the entire widget Product Line by 10%, select two of the accessory Item Categories for
a 20% discount, and choose to discount the Total Order by an additional 5% if the total items
ordered reach three or more.
A new feature in 4.5 allows you
to enable and establish default
price levels for specific
customers. An unlimited
number of customers and item
combinations are possible.

ENHANCED SALES ORDER INTEGRATI ON WI TH JOB COST
Enhancements in the interaction between Sales Order and Job Cost will provide customers more
flexibility in how they process and track work-in-progress. Additional Sales Order options will
efficiently post invoice costs to Job Estimates, post drop ship costs using Job Cost, and
automatically mark the job as complete when the invoice is generated. Information will automatically
flow through the system to relieve inventory. Sales Kits can be updated using various methods,
depending on how the customer wants to display a kit and its components, such as on the Job
Transaction Detail Report. New fields in Customer Maintenance allow customers to establish Default
Cost Codes and Defaults Cost Types. For easier reference, a new field displays the job number and
the description of the job on the Accounts Receivable Invoice History Inquiry screen. These new
options will allow customers to more efficiently enter multiple invoices for the same job, shipping
work-in-progress multiple times against the same invoice.


An additional set of features are
available in 4.5 to enable more
flexible pricing: by Total
Quantity, by Item Category, and
for quantity by Product Line.

DI STRI BUTE BY LOT AND SERI AL NUMBER
New functionally in Sales Order allows a company to select specific lot and serial numbers in order
entry when creating a Sales Order. In addition to using lot and serial numbers to be tracked for
potential recall of their products, this enhancement allows companies to reserve limited-quantity lots
or serial numbers for their best customers, as well as to match the product previously shipped to a
customer. If, for example, a granite supplier sells different types, colors and grains to be used in

remodeling project, that item can be reserved for that specific customer. The selected lot and/or
serial numbers can be printed on the sales orders and picking sheets for more reliable processing
and communication.




MAI NTAI N SPLI T COMMI SSI ONS BY CUSTOMER
This 4.5 enhancement allows businesses to establish and maintain default Split Commissions
between multiple salespeople by customer. So if you have an inside and outside sales
representative, you will be able to set commissions so that each salesperson will receive the
established share of the commission for that sale. After the default split commissions has been set
up for a customer, this commission split will default automatically, rather than having to enter this

information each time a Sales Order or single-step invoice is created for that customer. The new
default split commission customer settings provides the same functionality that exists today, for a
primary salesperson plus up to four additional salespeople.


COMMI SSI ON RATE TABLE BY SALESPERSON, CUSTOMER, I TEM
This Sales Order enhancement will allow the user to setup salesperson commission rates by
combinations of salesperson, customer, item and effective date using a new maintenance program.
For companies with different pricing tiers for specific customers, a large number of items, and with
multi-tier commissions, these new commission rate tables will provide an established and automatic
method for ensuring their salespeople are paid correctly. Commission rates in the new maintenance
program will be used for calculating line item commissions for inventory items on the sales order
invoice, and will override any commission rates setup for items in Item Maintenance, or the
commission rate entered for the invoice.

USAGE AND COST OF OWNERSHI P RESEARCH
New features and functionality in 4.5 will assist us in driving the direction of the product to reduce the
customers total cost of ownership (TCO). The Product Enhancement Program gathers important
system and use information such as the platform and operating system information, usage of the
system and most frequently used tasks. This information provides a framework for future usability
and cost of ownership improvements. The information gathered will not include any confidential or
company specific data. No user action is required and periodic uploads of data to Sage are
seamless to the user. During installation the wizard alerts the administrator to the presence of the
tool and affords an opt-out opportunity.

FEATURES AND FUNCTIONALITY ADDED VIA PRODUCT UPDATES
SINCE 4.4
Included in the 4.5 release are more than 35 enhancements that have been added to the product
since the introduction of 4.4. The additional features and functionality span across Accounts
Receivable, Accounts Payable, Bank Reconciliation, Credit Card Security, Inventory Management,
Job Cost, Library Master, Paperless Office, Payroll, Pre-Scan Utility, Purchase Order, and Sales
Order. For more details, please see the Whats New in Product Update 1, 2, 3, and 5 documents
posted on the Partner Marketing Resource Center (PMRC). Product Update 4 was limited to year
end updates and did not contain new features and functionality.

SAGE ERP MAS INTELLIGENCE FOR 4.5
New features and functionalities included in Sage ERP MAS Intelligence for 4.5 include the ability to
attach Reporting Trees to Report Designer layouts. The new trees will expand the options that
companies can use for different reporting structures. A new 90 day trial period is included for Report
Designer so customers can experience the benefits of expanded importing and exporting
capabilities, and creating scheduler commands. Also included in 4.5 is more flexibility on how
reports or any Excel workbooks are distributed, to include distribution via email, publishing to a
public server, and FTP publishing.
REPORTI NG TREES
The new Sage ERP MAS Intelligence 4.5 Reporting Tree structure allows the customer to generate
reports that automatically follow their internal company structure, with the flexibility to accommodate
anything from a simple to a very sophisticated hierarchy. Using Reporting Units, reports are able to
be set up to represent the companys hierarchies, and then easily generated at a Detailed or
Summary level. These Reporting Units can be departments by GL accounts, or higher level groups
in the company, established by building as many parent and child relationships as is necessary.
Sage ERP MAS Intelligence will provide the ability to set up hundreds of Tree Units for those
companies who have very complex corporate hierarchies, as well as meeting the needs of flatter
and more simple organizations who will require much fewer tree units. Once established, as
business needs change, the Reporting Trees will be able to be easily added to, changed, renamed,
and copied, without requiring a change to financial data.

REPORT DI STRI BUTI ON ENHANCEMENTS
Sage ERP MAS Intelligence 4.5 includes increased flexibility to distribute Intelligence Reports and
Excel workbooks, including sending reports to a file, publishing to an FTP site, or send via email in a
variety of standard formats. Customers can choose the reports they want to distribute, how they
want to send them, and the recipients. Report Distribution in 4.5 improves workflow and speeds up
business processes by automating report delivery and distribution.
4.5 Intelligence features includes the ability to establish unique settings for each email format,
choosing from PDF, HTML and XLSX, and to create custom criteria for report distribution.
Customers can send a report to different destinations, establish a regular distribution to managers
and executives, or use an existing outlook profile and address book. Flexible options include the
ability to add pertinent information to the report when its distributed via the chosen electronic
method, including the powerful ability to include a specific cell into the body of the email.


Sage ERP MAS 90, 200, and 200 SQL 4.5 Release Guide

Using the File Publish tab, a customer will be able to easily distribute reports to locations within their
companys network in PDF, HTML and XLSX.


Using the FTP tab, a customer will be able to easily distribute reports to FTP locations in PDF,
HTML and XLSX.

4.5 Intelligence provides the ability to establish convenient, fully unattended report distribution. Once
the required Distribution Instructions are setup and linked to worksheets within a report, users will be
able to flag the linked distribution instructions to be automatically sent whenever the report is run by
a Scheduler Command within Report Manager.




CONVERSI ON UTI LI TY ASSI STANT
With Microsofts permission, Sage is developing a utility that will decrypt proprietary FRx files. The
Conversion Utility Assistant will allow consultants or users familiar with FRx to recreate similar
reports in Intelligence more quickly, and reduce the effort in migrating FRx reports over to
Intelligence.

SageCRM v7.1 total campaign management functionality comes with full campaign workflow so
organizations can map campaigns to their business processes for consistent execution. It enables

that have worked the best for easy re-use. This drives marketing-wide collaboration by enabling
marketing users to share best practice within teams and re-create campaigns quickly and easily.
SageCRM v7.1 delivers a seamless calendar management experience thanks to real-time
synchronization between SageCRM and Microsoft Exchange, enabling users to access up-to-date

Current Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200 Extended Enterprise Suite customers will need to upgrade to
SageCRM 7.0 before installing 7.1. SageCRM 7.0 is available for download from the Extended
Enterprise Suite section on SSO, for those customers when upgrading to 4.5.

AVAILABLE MODULES FOR SAGE ERP MAS 200 SQL 4.5
When Sage ERP MAS 200 SQL 4.45 was introduced in November 2010, it was available for new
license sales only. As previously stated, with the 4.5 release current customers are able to choose to
migrate to SQL. However, because not all Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200 modules are available for
SQL, customers should work with their Business Partners to carefully evaluate their business needs
before migrating to SQL and inactivating those modules. A process for migration will be provided to
assist Business Partners in upgrading Sage ERP MAS 200 for SQL 3.7x customers to Sage ERP
MAS 200 SQL 4.5. New for Sage ERP MAS 200 SQL 4.5 is the ability to add SageCRM, Sage ERP
MAS Intelligence, and FAS Asset Accounting.
Sage SQL Runtime Edition licenses, Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard Edition licenses,
continue to be available from Sage in two licensing models per user or per processor. Licenses
are limited for use with Sage ERP and integrated third party or development partner solutions. Per
user licensing is sold as client server access licenses (CAL) with a minimum purchase of 5 users.
Per processor licenses may be more cost effective for customers with 20 or more users.

PRICING FOR 4.5
New license sales of Sage ERP MAS 90, 200 or 200 SQL 4.5 includes the option of either
traditional a-la-carte pricing or the user-based pricing model. User-based pricing is very similar
to the Extended Enterprise Suite model, requires a minimum purchase of 5-users, and includes
similar Sage ERP MAS modules. (See module list below.) One difference between the
Extended Enterprise Suite pricing model and the new 4.5 user-based pricing is that Fixed
Assets and SageCRM user licenses will be sold separately. The traditional a-la-carte pricing
has not changed from what is currently available today. Once a pricing model is selected,
customers will remain on that pricing model no migrations will be allowed to a different pricing
model. Existing Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200 customers (non-Extended Enterprise Suite) who
are current on a Business Care Plan will remain on traditional a-la-carte pricing. As of
December 1, 2011, the Sage ERP MAS 200 SQL 4.5 product will be priced at a premium of
$350 per user over the Sage ERP MAS 200 SQL 4.45 pricing, and M&S will be charged at the
new list price. Any current 4.45 customers will be merged into the 4.5 traditional a-la-carte
pricing model without incurring any fees. No product price changes have been made to the
Sage ERP MAS 90 Small Business Edition and the Sage SQL Server Runtime edition of
Microsoft SQL Server licenses.
Current Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200 Extended Enterprise Suite customers will remain as user-
based pricing. They will be merged into the standard product when upgrading to 4.5 without
incurring fees, with the same modules and number of users. As described in the SageCRM
section earlier in this document, because all customers will receive one free SageCRM user
Sage ERP MAS 90, 200, and 200 SQL 4.5 Release Guide
OCTOBER 2011 - 33 -

with 4.5, current Extended Enterprise Suite customers are also eligible to receive an
incremental SageCRM user license when they upgrade to 4.5, which will be added to their
account at no additional cost.
SageCRM offers two types of user licenses Named and Concurrent. Both Named and
Concurrent SageCRM user licenses will be available to be added to new and current Sage ERP
MAS 90, 200 and 200 SQL systems. All customers on a current Business Care Plan upgrading
to 4.5 are eligible to receive one free SageCRM server license, and one free SageCRM user
license. On each system, SageCRM user licenses must be of the same type, so when adding
licenses it is not possible to mix Named and Concurrent.
Platform migration pricing will be greatly simplified with the 4.5 release. Customers who want to
move up from their current platform, such as from Sage ERP MAS 90 to Sage ERP MAS 200,
or from Sage ERP MAS 200 to Sage ERP MAS 200 SQL will simply pay the price difference
between their current platform and their new platform, with their Sage Business Care calculated
based on their new platform.
User-Based Pricing will include the following modules:
o Accounts Payable
o Accounts Receivable
o Bank Reconciliation
o Bill of Materials
o Business Insights Dashboard, BI Explorer, BI Reporter
o Credit Card Processing by Sage Payment Solutions
o Crystal Reports Designer
o Custom Office
o Federal and State eFiling and Reporting
o General Ledger
o Inventory Management
o Library Master
o Paperless Office
o Purchase Order
o Return Merchandise Authorization
o Sage ERP MAS Intelligence single user Report Manager
o Sales Order

Questions document.

SAGE ERP MAS 90 SMALL BUSINESS EDITION BUSINESS

six-month plan option is no longer available.

RETIREMENTS AND SUSPENSIONS
To help you plan customer upgrades, we want to give you advance notice that with the 4.5
release, several retirements are planned.
ACT! LINK
The integration from ACT! to Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200 is retired as of the 4.5 release. It was
previous suspended with our 4.4 release. At this time, Sage will continue to focus future
development efforts on SageCRM for integrated Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200 and CRM
functionality.
EXTENDED ENTERPRISE SUITE TERMINOLOGY WILL NO LONGER BE USED
With the release of 4.5 and the merge of the standard and Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200
Extended Enterprise Suite products, the term Extended Enterprise Suite will no longer be used
to market the benefits of using SageCRM with Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200, for the user-based
pricing model, or the simplified installation process. Those benefits will be available for all three
versions of Sage ERP MAS 90, 200 and 200 SQL 4.5.
FRX FINANCIAL REPORTER
Prior to the 4.5 release, Microsoft announced the retirement of FRx so Sage started the
process of evaluating alternative solutions. Sage ERP MAS Intelligence was identified as the
ideal candidate to take customers from simple financial reporting to reporting and analyzing
their entire ERP solution. In the fall of 2010, Intelligence launched to Sage ERP MAS
customers. On January 31, 2011, Sage officially retired FRx. To help migrate customers over to
Intelligence, current FRx users were giving the equivalent Intelligence license(s) and/or
module(s). Over the coming year, Sage will work with customers and business partners to make
sure customers are using the ideal financial reporting solution for their business. With
Microsofts permission, Sage is developing a utility that will decrypt proprietary FRx files. The
conversion utility will allow consultants or users familiar with FRx to recreate similar reports in
Intelligence more quickly, and reduce the effort in migrating FRx reports over to Intelligence.
We expect v4.5 to continue to be backwards compatible with existing FRx installations and
reporting functionality.
STARSHIP PARCEL AND STARSHIP FREIGHT
Prior to the 4.5 release, and as of April 1, 2011, our relationship with VTechnologies changed,
and StarShip Parcel and StarShip Freight are no longer available from Sage. We are expecting
to introduce a new shipping solution this year. Please check this section for updated information
in the future.
PC CHARGE CREDIT CARD PROCESSING
The 4.5 release is the last version that will be compatible with Credit Card Processing powered
by PC Charge. We will support the solution until December 31, 2012. Credit Card Processing
powered by Sage Payment Solutions will continue to be compatible with Sage ERP MAS 90 and
200 4.5 to provide a complete credit card processing solution.

Sage ERP MAS 90, 200, and 200 SQL 4.5 Release Guide
OCTOBER 2011 - 38 -

REPORT MASTER
With the 4.5 release, the Report Master will be fully retired. Report Master was partially retired
with the 4.2 release and was no longer able to use source data from any modules updated to
the new Business Framework. Currently Report Master is only compatible for existing
customers with Non-Framework modules which includes Job Cost, Payroll, and Work Order. We
recommend using Sage MAS Intelligence or Crystal Reports for any reports that are needed.
EXTENDED SOLUTIONS
All Extended Solutions titles are now officially retired with the release of 4.5. The main features
and functionality of many Extended Solutions were incorporated into the core product in the last
few Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200 releases and Product Updates. The last of the select Extended
Solutions titles, shown below, are now retired with the 4.5 release.

Miscellaneous Notes
1. Antivirus software on your workstations and server should be configured to exclude files with the extensions SOA, LIB, M4T, M4L, DD, DDE, and DDF. If antivirus
software is configured to scan compressed CAB files, performance issues may occur. You may want to exclude scanning of CAB files and network drives. Also, you
should not have ..\MAS90\*.* files on the server scanned simultaneously by multiple instances of antivirus software. Desktop/Home versions of antivirus software that are
not supported by the publisher for business use are also not supported by Sage. Desktop/Home versions typically have less configurable options (such as exclusion of file
extensions over the network) for tuning the automatic, background, memory resident scans.
2. If you are using Symantec Antivirus Corporate or Enterprise Edition, review Resolution ID 415534 in the Sage InfoSource Knowledgebase.
3. Verify that you install the correct driver for your network adapter card (NIC), and use only high-quality cards. Using an incompatible or outdated driver or a low-quality
card can cause serious data corruption issues.
4. Always run Workstation Setup after installing, re-installing, or upgrading the Windows operating system, and verify that the Windows printers in Control Panel > Printers
are still operational.
5. Verify that all hardware involved in running Sage ERP MAS 90 is on your operating system vendor's Hardware Compatibility List. Incompatible hardware can cause
severe data corruption. For more information, refer to the Microsoft Hardware Compatibility List at: www.microsoft.com/whdc/hcl/default.mspx
6. The eBusiness Manager module may have additional separate program fixes for the Web Engine. You should apply the latest Web Engine bundle. For the latest program
updates, go to the Sage Online Web site at: www.sagesoftwareonline.com
If third-party enhancements are installed, always contact your development partner to verify compatibility before installing any updates. Some program fixes are
specifically excluded from the program fix collection and should be installed only if you are experiencing the problem they address.
7. The eBusiness Web Services service can be installed only on a Windows Server platform, such as Windows Server 2003 or 2008. For more information, see the eBusiness
Web Services Installation and Reference Guide found by clicking the Documentation link on the Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200 Autorun window of the install CD.
8. Always validate compatibility of development partner enhancements before upgrading.
9. Sage is committed to supporting future Microsoft operating systems as they are released to market for all Sage ERP MAS 90 modules; however, Sage does not support
beta-level operating systems. As new operating system levels are scheduled for general release, Sage will verify their compatibility, and this document will be updated
when Sages evaluations are completed.
10. For more information about performance, log on to the Sage Online Web site at www.sagesoftwareonline.com, and review Resolution ID 415534 "Slow Performance
when running Sage MAS 90 Version 4.0 across a network" in the Sage InfoSource Knowledgebase.
11. Wireless local area networks (WLANs) are not recommended for desktop or laptop connections, because using a wireless LAN may result in dropped packets and lost
connections.
12. The Microsoft Fax Services feature provided with Windows Server 2003 and 2008, Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7 is supported for Paperless Office and
batch faxing. For more information, refer to the Integrated Solutions Compatibility Matrix on the Sage Online Web site at: www.sagesoftwareonline.com

managing a large number of user accounts, computer accounts, group policies, organizational units, remote
sites, or other network resources.
o Running Sage ERP MAS 200 on any server actively running other applications or services, such as e-mail
(for example, Exchange Server), IIS, fax programs, SQL Server, or other software.
Not Supported
The items listed here are intended to be used for clarification purposes only, and are not intended to represent a
comprehensive list of exclusions.
Running Sage ERP MAS 200 on any Windows Small Business Server operating system regardless of the
number of user and computer accounts it is managing, is not supported. Small Business Server runs Active
Directory and Exchange Server by default, and that has been a factor in many reported cases of instability and
performance issues. Instability may also result if Small Business Server is further configured to run other
applications concurrently, such as IIS, Shared Fax Services, and SQL Server.
Service Pack 1 on Windows Server 2003 is not supported.
Using a server operating system as a Sage ERP MAS 200 workstation is not supported (not even as a client to
another server). However, this configuration can be utilized for testing.

Miscellaneous Notes
1. When running Sage ERP MAS 200 over a local area network (LAN) environment, the ping timings will vary depending on the speed and configuration of the network.
Typical ping timings with 1,800 bytes of data should be 20 30 milliseconds or faster. Unacceptable ping speeds are over 40 milliseconds.
2. In the Sage ERP MAS 200 client/server environment, integrated applications do their processing at the workstation, not at the server. As a result, users may experience
performance issues when running integrated applications from remote locations. Some of the applications affected include Crystal Reports, FRx, and F9.
Sage ERP MAS 200 includes a client/server based ODBC driver. This can be used instead of the client ODBC driver for faster processing.
Note: If the report was created using Business Insights Reporter (BIR) without runtime filters, and was not further modified with Crystal Reports, it is not likely to be a
report design issue because reports created using the BIR run off a single pre-populated view.
3. Virtual private network (VPN) and wide area network (WAN) connections should be set up as point-to-point connections, as opposed to Internet connections, for better
stability and performance. If an Internet connection is used, ensure the Internet Service Provider (ISP) can provide a guaranteed bandwidth; otherwise, users may
experience dropped sessions and lost connections. With any type of low speed WAN connection, for each remote user, select the Low Speed Connection check box in User
Maintenance.
4. If a VPN connection is used, keep in mind the following:
VPN solutions are either software-based, hardware-based (such as a VPN firewall), or a hybrid of both.
If a hardware-based solution is used on Level 3.x, verify that it supports secure, encrypted connections for applications that use back channels.
Software-based VPNs result in slower connection speeds due to the security overhead of encrypting the data. Hardware-based solutions run faster.
Low-speed connections are subject to considerable performance issues when using a software-based VPN. It may cause the connection to have a bandwidth of less
than 128 Kbps. For information on guaranteed bandwidth requirements, see miscellaneous note above.
Printing or previewing Crystal Reports and forms will require the Client Server driver (see miscellaneous note 3), or a Terminal Server or Citrix connection.
5. Suggestions for faster remote printing of Crystal reports over a WAN and virtual private network (VPN) are:
Using the Sage ERP MAS 200 Client/Server ODBC driver provided with Sage ERP MAS 200
Using Citrix or Terminal Services
Using non-graphical forms (those not based on Crystal Reports) if available
6. Always run Workstation Setup after installing, re-installing, or upgrading the Windows operating system, and verify that the Windows printers in Control Panel > Printers
are still operational.
7. Verify that all hardware involved in running Sage ERP MAS 200 is on your operating system vendor's Hardware Compatibility List. Incompatible hardware can cause
severe data corruption. For more information, refer to the Microsoft Hardware Compatibility List at: http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/hcl/default.mspx
8. The eBusiness Manager module may have additional separate program fixes for the Web Engine. You should apply the latest Web Engine bundle. For the latest program
updates, go to the Sage Online Web site at: www.sagesoftwareonline.com
If third-party enhancements are installed, always contact your development partner to verify compatibility before installing any updates. Also note that some program fixes
are specifically excluded from the program fix collection and should be installed only if you are experiencing the problem they address.
9. The eBusiness Web Services service can be installed only on a Windows Server platform, such as Windows Server 2003 or 2008. For more information, see the eBusiness
Web Services Installation and Reference Guide found by clicking the Documentation link of the Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200 Autorun window.
10. Always validate compatibility of development partner enhancements before upgrading.

12. Sage requires a guaranteed minimum bandwidth of 128 Kbps per user for running Sage ERP MAS 200 through a low speed remote connection. For each user, 256k or
higher is recommended. Select the Low Speed Connection check box in the Sage ERP MAS 200 User Maintenance task.
13. TCP/IP must be installed and properly configured so that you can ping by computer name and IP address from the workstation to the server. The server must be able to
ping the workstation by IP address. You must be able to use the Windows TELNET.EXE utility or equivalent to communicate with the Application Server on a specific
port ID and IP address, or on a specific port ID and name from all workstations to the server. If this cannot be done, you must contact your Microsoft support organization.
Sage Customer Support cannot assist with this task. For more information on connection requirements, refer to your Sage ERP MAS 200 Installation and System
Administrators Guide.
14. The Sage ERP MAS 200 Application Server is a Windows Sockets application that listens on a single port (default port 10000). You must open this port on your
firewall/router so clients can properly connect to the Application Server. The client does not listen back on its own port, so opening ports for clients is not necessary. Also,
the Application Server is compatible with Network Address Translation (NAT).
15. If the Sage ERP MAS 200 Application Server is configured to run as a service and you are experiencing "connection timed out" errors, white screens, hanging, or slow
performance, but only after a certain number of Sage ERP MAS 200 users are in the system, review document SS3003-A on Sage Online at www.sagesoftwareonline.com.
If you are running the Application Server on the desktop instead of running it as a service, the same problem may occur in a very large multi-user environment. If that is
the case, review document SS3003-A on Sage Online.
16. Wireless local area networks (WLANs) are not recommended for desktop or laptop connections, because using a wireless LAN may result in dropped packets and lost
connections.
17. The Microsoft Fax Services feature provided with Windows Server 2003 and 2008, Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7 is supported with Paperless Office and
batch faxing. For more information, refer to the Integrated Solutions Compatibility Matrix on the Sage Online Web site at: www.sagesoftwareonline.com

Notes
Sage ERP MAS 200 SQL is not a 64-bit application so it executes, by default, in a 32-bit mode when running on
a 64-bit operating system.
The eBusiness Web Services service can be installed only on a Windows Server platform, such as Windows
Server 2008. For more information, see the eBusiness Web Services Installation and Reference Guide found by
clicking the Documentation link on the Sage ERP 200 SQL Autorun window of the install DVD.
Unless absolutely necessary, avoid installing Sage ERP MAS 200 SQL to system controlled folders, such as
C:\Program Files or C:\Program Files(x86). Sage recommends installing Sage ERP MAS 200 SQL to a dedicated
non-system controlled folder, such as C:\Sage.
The eBusiness Web Services service can only be installed on a Windows Server platform, such as Windows
Server 2008. For more information, see the eBusiness Web Services Installation and Reference Guide found by
clicking the Documentation link of the Sage ERP MAS 200 SQL Autorun screen.
Recommendations
Sage ERP MAS 200 SQL should be installed on a dedicated member/application server. Although supported,
certain Windows server configurations are not recommended due to possible instability and performance issues.
Support from Sage Customer Support may be limited in the following circumstances:
o Running Sage ERP MAS 200 SQL on a Windows server acting as an Active Directory domain controller
managing a large number of user accounts, computer accounts, group policies, organizational units, remote
sites, or other network resources.
o Running Sage ERP MAS 200 SQL on any server actively running other applications or services, such as e-
mail (for example, Exchange Server), IIS, fax programs, or other software.
Not Supported
The items listed here are intended to be used for clarification purposes only, and are not intended to represent a
comprehensive list of exclusions.
Running Sage ERP MAS 200 SQL on any Windows Small Business Server operating system regardless of the
number of user and computer accounts it is managing, is not supported. Small Business Server runs Active
Directory and Exchange Server by default, and that has been a factor in many reported cases of instability and
performance issues. Instability may also result if Small Business Server is further configured to run other
applications concurrently, such as IIS, Shared Fax Services, and SQL Server.
Using a server operating system as a Sage ERP MAS 200 SQL workstation is not supported (not even as a client
to another server). However, this configuration can be utilized for testing.
Sage ERP and SageCRM Suite were not designed for any version of Windows Datacenter Server and are not supported on this platform.

Miscellaneous Notes
1. When running Sage ERP MAS 200 SQL over a local area network (LAN) environment, the ping timings will vary depending on the speed and configuration of the
network. Typical ping timings with 1,800 bytes of data should be between 2030 milliseconds or faster. Unacceptable ping speeds are over 40 milliseconds.
2. In the Sage ERP MAS 200 SQL client/server environment, integrated applications do their processing at the workstation, not at the server. As a result, users may
experience performance issues when running integrated applications from remote locations. Some of the applications affected include Crystal Reports.
3. Virtual private network (VPN) and wide area network (WAN) connections should be set up as point-to-point connections, as opposed to Internet connections, for better
stability and performance. If an Internet connection is used, ensure the Internet Service Provider (ISP) can provide a guaranteed bandwidth; otherwise, users may
experience dropped sessions and lost connections. With any type of low speed WAN connection, for each remote user, select the Low Speed Connection check box in
User Maintenance.
4. Always re-run Sage ERP MAS 200 SQL Workstation Setup after re-installing or upgrading the Windows operating system, and verify that a default Windows printer is
still available and operational.
5. Verify that all hardware involved in running Sage ERP MAS 200 SQL is on Microsofts Hardware Compatibility List. Incompatible hardware can cause severe data
corruption. For more information, refer to the Microsoft Hardware Compatibility List at: http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/hcl/default.mspx
6. Sage is committed to supporting future Microsoft operating systems as they are released to market for all Sage ERP MAS 200 SQL modules; however, Sage does not
support beta-level operating systems. As new operating system levels are scheduled for general release, Sage will verify their compatibility, and this document will be
updated when Sages evaluations are completed.
7. Using Citrix or Terminal Services is suggested for faster remote printing of Crystal reports over a WAN and virtual private network (VPN)
8. Sage requires a guaranteed minimum bandwidth of 256 Kbps per user for running Sage ERP MAS 200 SQL through a low-speed remote connection. For each user, 512
Kbps or higher is recommended. Select the Low Speed Connection check box in the Sage ERP MAS 200 SQL User Maintenance window.
9. If a VPN connection is used, keep in mind the following:
VPN solutions are either software-based, hardware-based (such as a VPN firewall), or a hybrid of both.
Software-based VPNs may result in slower connection speeds due to the security overhead of encrypting the data. Hardware-based solutions run faster.
Low-speed connections are subject to considerable performance issues when using a software-based VPN. It may cause the connection to have a bandwidth of less
than 256 Kbps. For information on guaranteed bandwidth requirements, see miscellaneous note above.

www.sagesoftwareonline.com. If you are running the Application Server on the desktop instead of running it as a service, the same problem may occur in a very large
multi-user environment. If that is the case, review document SS3003-A on Sage Online.
13. Wireless local area networks (WLANs) are not recommended for desktop or laptop connections, because using a wireless LAN may result in dropped packets and lost
connections.
14. The Microsoft Fax Services feature provided with Windows Server 2008, Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7 is supported only for Paperless Office and batch
faxing. For more information, refer to the Integrated Solutions Compatibility Matrix on the Sage Online Web site at: www.sagesoftwareonline.com
