Are you maintaining data outside of your system for reporting? Stop wasting your time!
I come across a lot of people whom for some reason or another are taking information out of Sage 100 (formerly MAS 90 and MAS 200) and manipulating it, either in excel or access, to come up with reports or tables that they need to do their job. Sometimes these processes can take hours to complete.
How much time are you spending outside of Sage 100 to get information that you need?
One thing I tell all my clients is,
“If the data is in the system, I can write a report to get the data out in a format you need to see it in. If the data is not in the system, let’s work on getting it in there in a way that will work for you.”
What this means is that a report that takes you, lets use a small number, ½ an hour a day to maintain and run outside of the system, can be set up to run at the press of a button. You might be thinking that ½ hour a day is not worth the money to set up a report or add fields, but your time is valuable. That short ½ hour a day is equal to 2.5 hours a week, 10 hours a month, 130 hours a year. That ½ hour spent to maintain that report outside of the system is taking up over 16 full work days a year of your time!
How much is your time worth?
Sage 100 has built in, often underutilized tools, that help the user get data into their system for reporting. Custom Office allows users to tailor their systems to meet their specific needs.
- Add user defined fields to desired tables
- Add created fields to various data entry screens
- Create User Defined Tables to store data for lookup and reporting purposes
- Create scripts to further customize how the data interacts with your system
