Have you ever wondered if there is a cost-effective way to configure, customize, or extend Sage 300 (Accpac) without high development expenses? Orchid Extender lets you tailor Sage 300 without complex code.
You can configure Sage 300 events you wish to monitor and configure an event, such as insert, update, insert and update, or delete) to occur based on what you are monitoring.
Alerts can be emails or notes and use configurable templates. These alerts can show:
As with Alerts, you can configure specific events you wish to monitor. When a configured event occurs:

Extender also allows you to set up workflows within your Sage 300 system. Extender allows you to build up the workflow steps using a range of pre-defined actions designed to cater to many common business scenarios. These workflows can:
Workflows can be started automatically when a Sage event occurs or manually using icons on Sage 300 screens. The active workflow instances can be viewed and actioned (e.g., Approve or Reject) using the Extender Workflow Console or through screen icons.
Extender can be configured to call an external program when a nominated event occurs within Sage 300.
With Orchid Extender, you can also take your Sage 300 customization to the next level using Python scripts with the Extender Developer Edition. This allows you to introduce bespoke business logic without the high costs normally associated with bespoke software development. You can cater for business requirements that can’t be met by standard Sage 300 functionality. Python scripts can be used to automate business processes, enhance systems integration, develop custom screens, or provide tailored validation and alerting. You can develop custom tables that form part of the Sage 300 database, tailoring the core system to meet your exact needs.
With Extender, you can tailor existing screens in ways not possible at the View level (e.g. tailor tabs, fields, buttons and finders). Or create new screens without the need for complicated programming.
With Extender, custom tables can be developed that form part of the Sage 300 database and database dictionary. The Custom Table Editor allows for the creation, update, and deletion of data in the custom view, or a script can be written for a tailored screen.
Advanced workflow capabilities can also be used to develop custom Workflow Actions using Python. These advanced workflows can incorporate Custom View/Table data into Workflow Actions.
Using the Developer Edition, you can synchronize between systems more efficiently, in real time, such as only updating data that has changed or create files to update external applications when events occur, such as shipment details for the warehouse. You can even synchronize the on-premises Sage 300 Vendors, Customers, GL Codes and Currency Rates to a separate cloud-based invoicing system.
Orchid Extender is an extremely powerful 3rd party application with unlimited possibilities on extending Sage 300 to better work for your business.
