eBusiness Web Services New In Sage MAS 90 and MAS 200 Version 4.4

The recent release of Version 4.4 of Sage MAS 90 and MAS 200 includes a new module called eBusiness Web Services which makes it much easier to integrate 3rd party applications with MAS 90 and 200.  It provides read, create, update and delete functionality for the MAS Sales Order, Customer, and Contact fields.   Future versions of MAS will add inventory and purchase order connections.

The most obvious use for this would be to bring in sales orders from an existing web store, but other uses are also possible.  Connections made through Web Services do NOT use a MAS license.

Repeating-orders are for customers who routinely order the same items. After a repeating-order is created, the customer, line item, tax, commission, and freight information is stored for immediate retrieval when creating a sales order. After repeating-order information is copied to a standard sales order, it can be modified or processed “as is”.

Master-orders document the total quantity of items to be delivered over a period of time using standard sales orders. Master-orders are different than repeating-orders in that master-order quantities can eventually be fulfilled. The master-order tracks the original quantity ordered and the remaining balance as sales orders are created. After either master or repeating order information is copied to a standard sales order, it can be modified or processed “as is”.
