Sage 100 2024 is now available. Let’s take a quick look at some of the key new features in the latest release that span inventory, sales and purchasing, usability enhancements, and more.

Usability Enhancements

It’s now easier to get the answers you need quickly with the new Resources button accessed from the Help tab. It provides convenient access to popular resources like the Sage Community Hub, Knowledgebase, Product Documents page, Sage University, and additional services.
In Paperless Office, a new Detail button has been added in the ‘Results of Electronic Delivery’ window that provides details about documents sent to customers and vendors, including the date and time the document was submitted and the status.
When updating or deleting customers, vendors or inventory items, a collection of improvements to the Delete and Change Utilities in A/P, A/R, and I/M make the process more efficient.

Inventory Management Improvements

Based on customer feedback through the Sage 100 Ideas website, two new tasks have been added to the Inventory Management Utilities menu. Delete Warehouses is a new feature that deletes existing warehouse codes which may be necessary when a virtual warehouse (for scrap or returns) is no longer needed, or when a physical warehouse location closes. Change Warehouses provides functionality to renumber or merge existing warehouse codes in your company data files.
In addition, Sage 100 workflow efficiency has been improved with an option to suppress extended item descriptions in grids, reducing distractions during data entry.

Sales and Purchasing Updates

In the P/O Module, a new Quick Close option simplifies closure of partially received purchase orders during receipt of goods entry. In addition, Sage 100 2024 introduces a new “Received” status for orders received, but not invoiced (previously, these orders displayed as Back Order).
In the S/O module, a new ‘Reset Sales Order …’ automates print flag resets for backorders for better workflow efficiency during sales journal updates. Plus, the new ‘Display Ordered Quantity in Red’ enhances visibility of sales order quantities that surpass inventory thresholds.

Over 20 New or Enhanced Features

Sage 100 2024 showcases over 20 new or enhanced features, many of which are based on feedback from existing customers as well as the Sage 100 partner community. Be sure to contact us if you have questions about upgrading or to request the detailed release notes.
