TEC Analyst Observations on Sage ERP MAS 90

Sage's strategy for small businesses is to provide robust basic functionality and the option to integrate or extend that functionality through other Sage products, add-ons offered by partners, and extra features provided through Web services. Sage is also diversifying its offering for small business from a technical perspective, with a cloud offering (Sage ERP MAS 90 Online) and also with Sage ERP MAS 200 SQL, which is the equivalent of Sage ERP MAS 90, except that it works with the Microsoft SQL Server 2008 database.

Core functionality for services companies is well supported by Sage ERP MAS 90, which is competitive for back-office functionality and customer management. While project management functionality is useful for the service industry, small businesses tend to focus more on keeping track of costs, and project management is typically handled in an ad-hoc manner.
