In November, Sage 300 2016 was released and is now available for download. Here’s a look at
a few of the most significant changes and new features introduced with this latest version.
New Web Screens
The marquee feature in Sage 300 2016 (Sage 300c version only) is the introduction of a brand new web interface for Common Services, Bank, Tax, General Ledger, Accounts Payable, and Accounts Receivable. These new HTML‐based screens are compatible with all the main web browsers and you can access them from a wider variety of devices.
Perhaps best of all, you can leverage these new modern web screens without being forced to move to the cloud. The operations modules like Inventory Control, Order Entry, and Purchase Order, will follow sometime in early 2016 as part of a product update.
A few enhancements have been added in Sage 300 2016 that will save you valuable time when
it comes to posting, reporting, and reconciliation. For example, you can now post invoices,
receipts, adjustments, and refunds directly from the entry screens for General Ledger,
Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable, and Bank Reconciliation. You no longer have to run an
entire batch to post an individual invoice or receipt.
If you design reports using Sage Intelligence Reporting, you’ll save time with enhancements in
Sage 300 2016 that will:
- Automatically detect missing accounts from reports.
- Exclude zero value rows from reports to make them easier to read.
- Set up dynamic ranges that detect any changes to the General Ledger and automatically
include these changes at run time to ensure your reports are consistently up to date.
