Sage have just updated the roadmap for Sage 100 ERP (Formerly Sage ERP MAS 90, MAS 200, MAS 200 SQL) as of April 2012. This document provides general guidance (subject to change) on expected new features and overall product direction for the Sage 100 product line.
Some observations on future direction:
Expect the following overall development cycle:
Two of the bigger changes may be the addition of Sage 100 ERP Shipping my SmartLinc. This replacement for the prior Starship solution (still supported independently by V-Technologies) features a completely web based on-premises and cloud based shipping solution. Complete carrier and shipping support for US and Canada, rate shopping, email notifications and Bill of Lading (BOL).
Integration of SmartLinc is via the Business Object Interface.
Also expected is a Sage ERP Payroll module for SQL. This standalone payroll module will integrate only to Sage 100 Premium (fka Sage ERP MAS 200 SQL).
Sage Payments via Sage Exchange is slated to play an even bigger role in the processing of Sage 100 ERP credit card transactions. Payment data is removed from the software and instead stored in the Sage vault for tighter security and easier compliance with what seem like ever changing credit card processing rules.
