Tools to Boost Business Effectiveness
 
Designed for high-level managers such as business owners, CEOs, CFOs and sales directors, Business Insights presents financial information in an attractive graphical format that allows you to instantly ascertain the state of your business. You can choose up to 12 key reports to include on your own customized Business Insights home page, which is accessible not only from the MAS 90 or MAS 200 Launcher, but also through Microsoft Internet Explorer, Outlook, or Digital Dashboard. Business Alerts will send you an e-mail when a predefined condition is met. For instance, if inventory levels of a key item drop below a certain point, you’ll be notified via e-mail so you can take action before the situation becomes critical. 

Integration Tools – The Custom Office module provides a suite of tools (Visual PostMaster, Customizer and MS Office Link) that integrate your MAS 90 or MAS 200 system with Microsoft Office. Customizer allows you to modify application screens to work the way you run your business, even add user-defined fields, all without programming. Visual Integrator provides seamless, fully automated transfer of data between MAS 90 and MAS 200 and other business applications. The Best authorized reseller tool, Data Migrator (DM), migrates data from other accounting software packages into a new MAS 90 or MAS 200 system.

Real-time financial information is instantly available within your spreadsheet, and you can save time by taking advantage of your existing spreadsheet expertise. F9 also saves time by eliminating re-keying of data into your spreadsheet.

Or, modify them to suit your needs, then save and run them anytime.

   
“Open architecture” is the catch phrase for business application software and databases these days. Companies that in the past may have put up with discrete applications running stand-alone, and performed software “gymnastics” to obtain integrated reporting from their tools, are now demanding that these products work together. To facilitate this process, an industry standard known as open database connectivity (ODBC) was developed. Visual Integrator has been designed to facilitate seamless integration between MAS 90 and MAS 200 data and other business applications. Visual Integrator can import from (or export to) any ODBC-compliant source, without the need for an intermediary data file such as ASCII delimited or Microsoft Excel. If you regularly perform imports from a custom or vertical software package, you’ll find you can use Visual Integrator to make the integration virtually seamless.
