Weekly Sage 100cloud News and Tips
Hello and welcome to another Thursday full of news and information about Sage 100.
Avalara Midyear Sales Tax Update - June 30, 2020
I sat in on the June 23, 2020, edition of this update ( they'll repeat it on the 30th for those who couldn't make the 23rd ). Lots of great information and their presentation solution allows you to download the handouts during the webinar.
I didn't realize that new marketplace rules, which may require sites deemed to be marketplaces to withhold and remit sales tax on behalf of their retailers, were growing so quickly.
This is a 90-minute session. The presenter and facilitator don't read from the slides but rather use the deck to back up what's being presented. The handouts alone make this worthwhile though I thought the presentation was very valuable as well.
Register for the June 30 session here.
Introducing Sage Enterprise Intelligence for Sage 100
While Sage Intelligence is frequently used for financial statements I have not seen it adopted as frequently for non-financial business intelligence reports.
Certainly, some companies do use Sage Intelligence for a non-financial report but the primary use has been financial.
Now Sage is bringing Sage Enterprise Intelligence ( SEI ) , which had been available for Sage 300, 500 and X3, to Sage 100.
This is a white-label version of Nectari from Tangerine Software. The main difference being that SEI is that, although SEI can create financials, it is aimed at producing business intelligence type views and reports on non-financial data.
There is a webinar TODAY June 25, 20 that explains and demonstrates this. Register here.

SAGE 100 NEWS AND INFORMATION
Warehouse Efficiency Tip: Pick to Pallet
Today's demo from Scanforce is Pick To Pallet. This enhancement allows your warehouse staff to stage items picked from your warehouse to pallets. This is useful when you need to pick a large order or stage one for later shipping. Once picked and placed in a separate area your Sage Inventory can be moved to a shipping bin.
When ready to ship you scan one label which then automatically ships everything you'd previously picked/staged.
Check out the 4-minute demo online here.
