Sage 50 Version 2019 (U.S. Edition) is now available. In this article, we’ll take a look at some of the best new features in this release which includes a variety of customer-requested enhancements and a new integration between Sage 50 and Sage CRM.
Features in this release pertain to both Sage 50 perpetual license and Sage 50c (cloud) users.
Expanded Sales Order Drop-down Menu in Sales/Invoicing Window – When choosing a sales order to convert in the Sales/Invoicing window, the drop down list of available sales orders has been widened to that long SO numbers won’t get cut off.
.NET Framework 4.7.1 Updates
Sage 50 now leverages .NET Framework 4.7.1, which is already installed on most operating systems through standard Windows updates. If the update does not exist during installation, .NET Framework 4.7.1 will be installed during the installation process. Several advantages of this update include:
- Performance and Reliability improvements
- Security improvements
- Compliance with latest native TLS security protocol standards
Totals Added to List Views for Quotes and for Purchases – This one’s kind of self explanatory, but when you’re in the Quotes window or the Purchases/Receive Inventory (AKA Enter Bills) windows and click the List button, you’ll now see a total at the bottom of the list.
Sage CRM Integration
Sage 50 2019 now works hand-in-hand with Sage CRM customer relationship management software. Sage CRM is ideal for companies that need to streamline processes between departments or provide customer-facing staff with financial information, including the ability to create orders through the Sage CRM interface that pass through to the Sage 50 accounting system without errors or duplicate data entry.
Some of the features of the new integration include:
- Display Year-to-Date (YTD) Sales compared to Last YTD Sales in CRM
- Displays the Date of the last Invoice in CRM
- Shows a listing of Order and Invoice history in CRM
- See line item details for historical Orders and Invoices in CRM
In addition, the integration allows you to connect multiple companies in Sage 50 to a single company record in Sage CRM.
