The differences between Anytime Supply Chain and Sage 100 MRP Software.The MRP software module for Sage 100 is incredibly limited. Below are some of the Sage 100 MRP software limitations that are addressed with Anytime Supply Chain MRP software. Sage 100 ERP (formerly Sage MAS 90 and Sage MAS 200) includes a Bill of Material, Work Order, and MRP software module. The first two modules were developed by Sage Software. The MRP software module was originally developed by a third party and Sage acquired the module in the 1990s. Sage has done little to enhance this module since it stabilized the module’s code in the early 2000s making it operational and reducing the amount of bugs that customers were reporting when trying to use it.
Sales Forecasting Software – Sage 100 has very basic capabilities to manage forecasted demand limiting customer ability to drive purchase order or work order plans from demand forecasts.
Transfer Orders – Many Sage 100 customers operate multiple warehouses or distribution centers or they transfer stock from a centralized location to virtual warehouses for shipping or for manufacturing. Sage 100 does not natively support three-step transfer orders. Anytime Supply Chain software can help companies plan for transfers between warehouse locations.
Action Messages – In previous versions, Sage 100 had no functionality for work order action messages. Sage 100 MRP software does have an Action Message report for vendors but this is again very limited and must be accessed from the report rather than from within the MRP planning activity. Anytime Supply Chain software is driven from action messages which is much more efficient for planners and buyers.
Anytime Supply Chain Planning Workbench software offers a lot more information and advanced functionality for Sage 100 MRP software users. The customizable layout allows planners and buyers to organize the screen to see the information that is most important to them.
