Substantial value is provided in the newest release through new additional usability enhancements such as Visual Process Flows, delivering on top enhancement requests, simplifying application of Sage 100 ERP Product Updates via Auto Updates, enhanced Credit Card Processing using Sage Exchange, and much more.
