Sage has stepped up the frequency of product upgrades. Many Master Builder users are running version 14. With the release of version 15 at the beginning of 2010, there were several significant changes to various modules and quarterly payroll reports.
As of late August, Sage has released Master Builder version 16. In keeping with their support policy, only two versions are supported at any time. This means that Master Builder versions 15 and 16 will be supported. Companies running version 14 will need to upgrade in the near future. Master Builder can be upgraded from version 14 to version 15. The software can also be upgraded from version 14 to version 16, which has just been shipped.
Any upgrade from Sage Master Builder version 14 will include a variety of changes for the users, including Accounts Payable, the Job screen, and Payroll. This is the first in a short series of updates that highlight some of these changes. We begin with Accounts Payable, Payments.
Previously in order to select A/P invoices to be paid, a user would go to the Vendor Payments screen (4-3) to select invoices for payment and print checks. In MB 15, Vendor payments have been broken down into two separate screens.
This enhancement separates the Invoice selection to pay from the process of printing the checks or vouchers. The 4-3-2 Pay Vendors also incorporates the new Credit Card Processing option.
