Paperless Office Tips and Free Reports

Paperless Office, included free in version 4.3 of Sage MAS 90 and MAS 200, lets you store and catalog for easy retrieval journals, registers and forms in Acrobat (PDF) files. It allows you to automatically email and/or fax forms such as invoices and purchase orders to customers and vendors, according to how you set up each customer and vendor. What it doesn't give you is an easy way to see who you have set up so far and what email addresses or fax numbers are set up.

To remedy this, Friendly Systems is making available a set of Crystal reports, one for customers and one for vendors. Download the zip file which contains the two reports as well as a text file with instructions for adding the reports to the menu in your MAS 90 or MAS 200 installation.

A further capability of Paperless Office is that it allows you to attach other files to journals and registers. So you could, for example, scan and attach incoming packing lists to the PO Receipt of Goods register, or vendor invoices to the PO Receipt of Invoice register or AP Invoice register.

For QuickBooks users, there is PaperSavePlus, which allows you to enter and retrieve your scanned attachments directly from the document screen in QuickBooks.

Friendly Reminders

Friendly Systems is now using Paperless Office for invoicing. Please let us know who at your company should receive invoices, and it can be more than one email address.
