Sage 300 ERP (formerly ACCPAC) 2012 Version Notes

I’ve been looking at the 2012 / 6.1 version of Sage 300 ERP, which I still think about as ACCPAC. I think I was expecting some major changes to the user interface in this version, but not yet. Here are the major things I see in the 2013 version What’s New list and in the product:

  • Visual Process flows (click the image below to see the full screen). These are sort of like the “flowchart” start screen on the QuickBooks product. Start here –> here next –> finish here. I’m sure they will help novice users, particularly since you can click the “nodes” in the flowchart to launch the associated program. But I’m hard to impress.
  • Credit card processing integrated into the solution.
  • Numerous tweaks and enhancements, particularly in RMA (Return Material Authorization).
  • The PO, IC, and OE module data has been added to the Inquiry (query) function.

I’ll leave comments on other related products (like credit card processing) for later.

Here are a couple of screen shots:
