DSD Business Systems and ScanForce Announce Multi-Bin For Sage 100 Due Early 2016

Multi bin announce

 

DSD Business Systems and ScanForce today announced a joint development project to create a multi-bin inventory solution for Sage 100. According to the press release:

The new Multi-Bin product is currently under development and is planned for an early 2016 release. It will be available to purchase as a stand-alone product from DSD Business Systems, as well as through ScanForce as a bundled Multi-Bin & Warehouse Management Solution. The Multi-Bin product will be available for Sage 100 versions 4.50, 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016.

 

This announcement appears to be in response to the July 27, 2015 announcement of ONE for Sage 100 which combined the resources of three leading ISVs for Sage 100, including the most widely used multi-bin developer ACS Group, into a suite of solutions that potentially caused competitors such as Scanforce to be left without a multi-bin offering  compatible with future Sage 100 releases.

Created by three of the leading providers of warehouse management solutions, Advanced Computer Solutions Group, JDB Solutions Group LLC and Scanco Software LLC have created ONE, a warehouse management and manufacturing automation solution like no other. By combining resources, end users receive an all inclusive system and support team making ONE the most powerful and seamless product on the market.

 

Todays announcement  raises several  questions about whether Sage themselves might invest in creating a multi-bin feature enhancement for Sage 100 as well as the level of compatibility  the DSD-Scanforce multi-bin might eventually have with competing products.

Although the initial press release states “The new Multi-Bin product will be designed to work exclusively with the ScanForce Warehouse Management Solution” it remains to be seen whether the enhancement will also be compatible with third party manufacturing solutions such as JobOps,

Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200 Re-Branding Kicks In Starting May 15, 2012

Sage is starting to make notifications to at least one owner of a LinkedIn group with the brand name Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200 that starting May 15, 2012 the name must be changed to reflect the new Sage 100 ERP branding.

This is the first time that we’ve noticed a timetable for the Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200 products. Previously the timetable had loosely been defined as starting with the next major product release. For Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200 that would have been late 2012 when Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200 version 5.0 is due to be released Q4 2012.
