Sage 300 ERP Software Snapshot

Sage 300 2016, formerly known as Sage 300 ERP and Sage Accpac ERP, integrates with MISys manufacturing and includes excellent financial accounting and distribution capabilities as well. Geared toward small and mid-size companies, this product is designed primarily as a repetitive manufacturing solution that performs MRP software functions. It can also handle recipe batch manufacturing, but lacks capacity planning and project accounting.

Sage 300 and Sage 300c: How do they differ?

Sage 300c has an html web interface and is accessible on any device, including tablet and phone.

Sage 300 ERP Manufacturing software is a scalable system. Organizations can start with Basic Manufacturing and expand functionality with additional modules, such as Advanced Purchasing, Advanced Production, Material Requirements Planning, Shop Floor Control, Serial/Lot Tracking Labor Tracking and Bar Coding.

For larger firms, the solution can support hundreds of concurrent users on Microsoft SQL Server 2000 and above. Flexible deployment options include desktop PC installation, company Intranet or hosted cloud deployment. This solution has been on the market since 1982, and has always focused on delivering user-friendly MRP software functionality to small-to-medium sized manufacturers.
