Sage MAS Intelligence Overview
When Microsoft announced the retirement of the FRx financial reporting software, which has for many years been included with Sage MAS ERP (MAS 90/200/500), Sage began searching for a replacement. Sage ERP MAS Intelligence has been identified as the ideal FRx replacement solution for Sage MAS ERP.

Sage ERP MAS Intelligence allows you to spend more time focusing on analysis and interpretation and less time pulling the data together.

Report Manager allows you to create and edit new reports as well as to filter and aggregate data. You’ll receive a basic set of standard report templates with Report Manager. These templates provide easy-to-use, in-depth financial, operations, and strategic planning intelligence visibility, so you can focus on ROI and results. Use the flexible security to establish and set permissions for your reports.
A Report Viewer License provides you with the ability to view reports, and drill-down into existing reports and templates. Basic editing capabilities, such as filtering the data and changing the parameters, are also included. Report Viewer licenses are ideal for staff members who do not need to create new reports.
