Recently, Sage released the 2016 version of Sage 300.  One of the remarkable changes in this version is the web screens.  Sage 300 2016 has included the option to install web screens that can be used in a web browser.   The web screen can be accessed thru desktop computer, laptop, or tablet.  This gives you freedom and convenience to see what’s going on in your business anytime, anywhere.  Plus, you can enter transactions as well. 


The 2016 release also includes a number of new features and enhancements.  In this blog, you will find all relevant updates on the core Financial Modules.

In System Manager, a new report is now available for a more detailed User Authorization report.  This gives you a list of all access rights available to each user
