Back in May at the Sage Insights 2009 conference we met with the folks over at Blytheco. They have a new product that they’re excited about called BMobile.
What this does is take Sage MAS 90 or MAS 200 screens and transfer them to HTML. This enables you to log into MAS 90 or MAS 200 remotely from just about any web enabled device and use your accounting system.
There are a couple potentially huge advantages to this solution.
First, if the product delivers on the pre-releae promise, you’ll be able to get at your data from any web enabled device via a browser. Previously users had to use a remote solution such as Terminal Server or Citrix.
Second, bMobile will enable some users to setup remote access for customers who demand the ability to review their transactions in real time. In prior cases most MAS 90 users would have had to setup some type of Citrix or Terminal Server access with lots of security limitations for their customer so they could not browse other data.
Third, Blytheco is promising that areas of the program which a user does not have access to may be taken off the screen. So if a customer does not have access to Invoice Data Entry they would not see that option.
bMobile for MAS90 Pricing
bMobile pricing is available online from the Blytheco site. The basic 5 users system is $1,250 for the core foundation and you can add on smartphone access for $1,250 (5 users), CRM integration to SalesLogix Web 7.5 for $1,250 and bMobile B to B which provides Customer SO Entry and Inquiry (seems like a eBusiness workaround) for $1,250.
The complete bMobile for MAS 90 price list is here.
Here’s a quick demonstration that I filmed while at Insights 2009 where Danny Baker, VP Development for Blytheco walks through the bMobile program.
