While there hasn’t been a major release of Sage 300 ERP since Version 2012 from late last year, there were still plenty of noteworthy enhancements and new features added through interim product updates and new connected services in 2013. Let’s take a look at the year in review.
Product Update 1 (PU1)
Released in March 2013, Product Update 1 (PU1) for Sage 300 ERP Version 2012 included a bunch of great new features and a range of usability improvements including:
- Over 20 new Payroll features for both U.S. and Canadian customers.
- Color-coded company screens to help customers - who run multiple Sage 300 ERP databases stay organized when screens for several companies are open at the same time.
- Sage Source provides employees with the ability to access and print their payroll history using an online portal, without tying up your internal payroll staff for routine administrative requests.
- Sage CRM Integration Enhancements.

Note: Sage has ended support Sage 300 ERP Version 5.5 as of March 30, 2013. Be sure to contact us if you’re currently running Version 5.5 and would like to schedule an upgrade.
Sage Inventory Advisor
2013 brought us Sage Inventory Advisor - an affordable cloud-based service that helps you reduce excess inventory and lower carrying costs while eliminating stock-outs. It works by connecting with your Sage 300 ERP inventory module, crunching the numbers using a sophisticated forecast engine, and continuously monitoring inventory status to help you optimize stocking levels.
Sage Mobile Apps
Also new this year was the launch of 3 mobile apps designed to help you improve sales, customer service, and cash flow using a mobile device or tablet. These Sage Mobile Apps - including Mobile Sales, Mobile Service, and Billing & Payment - are cloud-based solutions that are affordable, easy-to- implement, and integrate directly with your Sage 300 ERP system.
Sage City – An Online Community
This year, we also saw the launch of Sage City - an online community that replaces all of the previously separate online product portals and destinations. If you have question about your Sage 300 ERP system, head over to Sage City where you’ll connect with fellow customers, industry peers, and a whole community of support to help you get the most out of your software.
