In The Spotlight:
Sage MAS 90 Version 4.2


With the Sage MAS 90 ERP Version 4.2, the Accounts Payable module receives its update to the new Business Framework architecture bringing speedy dual-grid data entry and other benefits. We cover the important benefits of the Business Framework, and highlight Business Insights Explorer, a major component of 4.2.

Let’s take a look at the other significant new capabilities in the release.


Vendor Maintenance


Three new tabs have been added for easy viewing of all the detail retained for Vendors. The Summary tab provides the Period-to-Date, Year-to-Date, and Prior Year information as of any period-end by choosing the desired Fiscal Period and Fiscal Year.

The History tab provides purchase, payment, and discount information for any fiscal year. In addition, you can toggle the screen to show current and prior year comparative information.

On the Invoices tab, the dual-grid allows you to highlight a specific invoice in the top grid, and view all the individual transactions related to it, such as payments and credits, in the lower grid. The data on all of the grid-style tabs—Invoices, Transactions, and P/Os—can be re-sorted by clicking at the top of any column. A Use P/O Receipt of Invoice Entry option ensures that invoices from the selected vendor will be correctly received through the Purchase Order module rather than the Accounts Payable module.


Smoother Manual Check Entry And Quick Printing


Quick Print check numbers now are incremented automatically. Alphanumeric characters are allowed in Manual Check entry to facilitate entry of wire-transfer information.


Enhanced Controls For Checks


A security event for the Clear button in Invoice Payment Selection provides tighter controls over printing and deleting check selections. A warning message is displayed when accessing Check Maintenance if checks have been printed but not yet updated.




Accounts Payable checks can be printed in ANSI-Compliant format, and Address Line 3 and Remit-to Address now can be printed on checks. Extended stubs can print the general ledger account distribution, and to streamline processing, check printing programs save the last form type used.


More 1099 History


With Version 4.2, 1099 Payment History is saved indefinitely, eliminating the requirement to purge last year’s 1099s before entering the current year’s data.


Reporting Options


New choices make reviewing information easier. For example, you can print the Aged Invoice Report based on Invoice Due Date and/or As-Of a specific aging date. The Check History Report prints alphabetically by Vendor Name to make it easier to read. A summary option on the Cash Requirements Report makes it easier to get to the bottom line.
