Reconcile your bank accounts faster
The new enhancements in Sage Pro 2011 give you to the ability to search through your bank records by any number of criteria including check number. It also gives you to flexibility to sort records by selecting any of the column headings as well as select/unselecting all records.

Be alerted of important customer information
A new feature allows you to easily alert your employees about an important customer issue. This alert can then be presented to the user prior to important actions being taken such as shipping inventory to a customer. For example, you could place an alert on a customer saying bad credit. Then whenever a lookup is done on the customer, this alert could appear allowing the user to decide if they would like to move forward with the action.

Customer Alert Screen

View your customers’ average days to pay
Easily view the average days to pay for each of your customers. Easily identify the customers that take longer to pay their invoices and know your best and worst paying customers. Also view the average days to pay in the Aged Receievables report and a new dataview.

Accept credit cards securely
Improve productivity by using the improved credit card module that is now included at no charge to all customers. New options are available in this fully PADSS compliant module such as; voiding pre-authorized transactions, modifying expiration dates, enabling Card Verification Value (CVV) can add security and perhaps lower merchant fees.

Setup a default warehouse per customer
Allow for the default warehouse location to be set at the customer level. This would for example allow west coast customers to ship from the west coast warehouse and east coast customers to ship from the east coast warehouse lowering shipping costs for both you and your customers.

Default to a landed cost in PO
Purchase orders now recognize items associated with landed cost locations and allow you to automatically convert the transaction into a landed cost transaction. This can help in preventing a user from making a mistake while creating purchase orders for items that have landed costs assigned to them.

Switch between add and edit screens more easily
With a single click, you can now easily move between the add order and edit order screen within Sage Pro. The same function is also available in screens Enter Payables, AR Invoices, Create Journal Batch, and Enter Purchase Orders.
