Accounting software giant, Sage, is definitively changing its product names in a push for better branding and name recognition. Alongside the release of Sage”s newest product names, AccuPOS has put together a historical overview of its accounting software. This post is dedicated to the Sage MAS 90 product (now called Sage 100 Standard ERP), which was the first accounting software of the Mast Accounting Series, introduced in mid 80s by a company called State of the Art, Inc. Initially, the software was used by Certified Public Accountants for testing purposes and then recommended to their client base. The Sage Group plc, commonly known as Sage, used the same software to launch the first version of Sage accounting software, a product for the Amstrad PCW word processor.
As technology became more advanced and complex, new versions of Sage accounting software were launched to meet the needs of accountants and firms. The company then launched Sage MAS 90 accounting software, providing customers with a flexible platform to achieve their business goals in a minimum possible time. Sage ERP MAS 90 will undergo a rebranding in May 2012 and the software will be rebranded as Sage 100 Standard ERP.
