What's new in Sage 300 2017?

Increased business visibility

Create and share notes related to a customer, vendor, or inventory item, so you and your colleagues always have the right information, right when you need it. With notes, you'll be able to keep track of your most important or most problematic issues, ensuring business transparency across the organisation.

Optimise your inventory forecasting

With Sage Inventory Advisor Basics, you'll be able to quickly see optimal purchase recommendations as well as easily identify what to buy and when based on accurately generated forecasts. Improved visibility and smarter purchasing means you minimise stock-outs and reduce excess stock.

Customise your Web experience

With new customisation options, you'll be able to easily remove fields that you don't need on the Web screens, and edit field labels to suit the specific needs of your business. Moreover, Web screens will automatically adjust to remove empty white space, minimising scrolling down the screen.

Streamline credit card processing

You will now be able to process payments faster with just one click of the mouse, when using Sage Payments Solutions integrated with Sage 300. In addition, Sage has added batch credit card processing to Sage 300 2017, which allows you to bring up multiple outstanding invoices on one screen and process them using the default credit card on file.
