Save On Credit Card Processing Fees

Sage Payment Solutions is currently offering both great rates on credit card processing fees as well as a Free Credit Card Module for current installations of Sage MAS 90, MAS 200 and Accpac. I was a little skeptical at first too, but one of our allies just switched to Sage Payment Solutions and is anticipating saving $1000/month on their credit card processing fees.

Especially if you are currently processing credit cards outside of your ERP software and entering them as cash receipts, this is a great deal, as you will save time as well having the credit card processing integrated into your order entry and invoicing process. Note: if you are running MAS 90 or MAS 200 versions prior to 4.2.10, you will need to use PCCharge software to complete the integration.

Tech Tip: Automatic Negative Quantity and Balance Adjustments

In Sage MAS 90 and MAS 200, the Inventory Detail Transaction Report (or Transaction Tab of Inventory Maintenance / Inquiry) can show Negative Quantity Adjustments automatically created by the system as a result of transactions for average and standard valued inventory items. If an average or standard cost item has a negative on hand quantity (item over-sold or over-issued), and a purchase order receipt (or Bill of Materials Production entry, Work order completion, or Inventory Receipt) is processed for a different value (cost), adjustment transactions are generated. These are automatically generated because the system must make an adjustment to account for the difference between the cost of goods sold on the invoices (or issues) and the cost of the goods received.

The transaction types are PZ (Purchase Order), BZ (Bill of Materials or Work Order), and IZ (Inventory Transaction Entry). These transaction postings to GL are automatically generated from the module that updates the quantity on hand for an item.
