As you may know, the Sage MAS Intelligence Report Writer is scheduled to be released shortly. As we’ve started discussing this new tool with clients, naturally questions have arisen about how it compares with historical Sage MAS 90 and MAS 200 report writers. The attached document does a great job at comparing and contrasting this new reporting tool with FRx, F9, Business Insights and Crystal Reports.
One interesting thing to note is that Sage MAS Intelligence will NOT be compatible with Microsoft Office 2003. This is an important requirement that needs to be addressed before committing to any future using of Sage MAS Intelligence. We have a lot of clients who haven’t yet upgraded to a more up to date version of Office/Excel, and this may become a compelling reason to do so.
