Sage 100 - 20 Features You Already Own


Yesterday I sent a link to a client with all of the feature updates in the last several version found here.  In addition there was a request for frequently underutilized features already in the software. 


You many not own all of these but, how many of the 20 were you aware and more importantly use?  We are here to help you strategizing using these features and others.
