SAI v5.6 BUNDLE FUNCTIONALITY

September 29, 2010
For those readers who prefer the summarized version, acquiring additional SAI licences affords you the opportunity to 1) fundamentally augment the standard reports or create your own & import reports created off-site (Connector Module) OR 2) import reports created off-site and have multiple SAI users (Report Manager). If you are partial to detail then have fun with the points below.
WHAT IS BEING BUNDLED AS PART OF THE SAGE ACCPAC VERSION 5.6 RELEASE?
Each client will get the Intelligence application, which includes:
• Standard report templates for management (financial reports, dashboard, financial analysis/trends), sales, purchases, inventory and Top five product, customer and vendor KPI reports). Does not include data cubes (requires Analysis module).
• Connection to only one Sage ERP Accpac company database at a time only (although can connect individually to multiple Sage ERP Accpac company databases).
Each client will also receive a single user License for the Intelligence Report Manager, which allows the user to:
• Author new reports (organizing, creating, editing), as well as filter and aggregate data based on existing data containers and available fields only.
• Set permissions/security for both Intelligence modules and/or licenses as well as individual reports.
WHAT LIMITATIONS APPLY TO THE INTELLIGENCE SOLUTION THAT IS BEING BUNDLED AS PART OF THE SAGE ERPACCPAC VERSION 5.6 RELEASE?
• Can connect to any number of Sage ERP Accpac companies but only one company at a time.
• Cannot connect to non Sage ERP Accpac databases (the Connector Module is required to connect to additional ODBC sources).
• Cannot add additional fields to standard reports that are not already provided by the data containers (requires Connector Module).
• Cannot perform multi-company consolidations (requires the Connector Module).
• Cannot create reports off modules and/or fields that are not available in the standard data containers (requires the Connector Module).
• Cannot schedule reports to run automatically (requires the Connector Module).
• Cannot import reports created from other Intelligence installations (requires an additional Report Manager and/or Connector Module).
• Cannot run OLAP or cube reports (requires the Analysis Module).
WHAT IS AVAILABLE FOR SAGE ACCPAC VERSION 5.5?
There is no difference in functionality for Intelligence from Sage ERP Accpac Version 5.5 to Version 5.6. The product is sold the same way, with the exception of the additional value for our customers that move to the current Version 5.6 version (free Report Manager License). Partners can use their Master CD for Version 5.6 to install product for customers that want to remain on Version 5.5. Customer can also order the product for Version 5.5 and they will be shipped a CD.
