Sage MAS 90 ERP was first launched in the eighties and it was widely used by Certified Public Accountants. It has developed ever since and it is now providing comprehensive accounting solution to its customers. It has few disadvantages also. It might be considered obsolete by some users. Although Sage MAS 90 primarily targets wholesale distributors, its features make it suitable for other types of companies also, such as manufacturing companies. The product currently comes with over forty modules and the module for billing makes it very appropriate to be used by companies in the manufacturing sector. It handles warehouse management, inventory management, bar codes, price changes and shipping, among other things.
Sage MAS 90 ERP also provides tools for CRM and the human resources management. The module for human resources is under BEST umbrella and it is named Abra Human Resources. Another module deals exclusively with fixed assets. This is something new for accounting software because many similar products don't have it. It is also part of BEST portfolio and was successfully integrated into Sage MAS 90 ERP. The features provided by the financial module have proven their efficacy in time and have delivered great customer satisfaction. There are still opinions considering that the implementation process is too long and complicated and other voices are complaining about the poor customer support of the product.
Sage MAS 90 ERP remains a popular product because it is known as a reliable and stable solution and it is very affordable in terms of initial costs. It also allows customization in what concerns the user interface. Customization can include, for example, features like sending personalized letters on click. Another useful module is the business intelligence one which enables an efficient monitoring of the key data in the organization. Sage MAS 90 ERP also comes with a module for web store management. It takes care of online shopping, credit card processing and self-service.
Sage MAS 90 ERP has successfully integrated Crystal Reports and even though some modules are not providing reports that can be edited, the user can design new editable ones with this tool. It also allows designing reports in Excel or FRX which can also be e-mailed.
For those considering that SAGE MAS 90 ERP belongs to an older technology, they can easily switch to Sage MAS 200, a newer version. The easy data migration tool allows user to transfer everything they need, from files to applications defaults and other sorts of entries.
