Often, Sage 200cloud users don’t realise that every month Sage release a report for them – totally free! The report released is one that has been requested by either the Business Partners; to meet the need of their customers or the end users themselves. This can be on anything from the Sales Ledger to Bill of Materials and everything in between.
To keep you in the loop, we are introducing a series of quarterly blogs which will outline the past three months’ worth of free reports released by Sage. We will be giving you an update on what reports have been released, the information you can get within each report with a detailed breakdown of the fields included and how you can run them. This will include screenshots of how the reports look and, most importantly how you can get your hands on them.
July – Price List (Base Prices) by Warehouse
Module: Price Book
The first report of the month we are going to look at is July’s. The report has been created for the Price Book and is based off the existing Price List (Base Prices) report which already exists in the Price Book. It allows you to report on Price Bands as per the Stock Item’s Warehouse. This is a useful report if you want to review the selling prices in different locations or warehouses of your business. The report allows you to filter on the Price Band, Stock Code and Warehouse.
The report then gives you the results for the Warehouse of the stock item, grouping the stock items in their product group and price band. The following fields are available on the report:
- Price Band
- Product Group
- Item Code
- Item Name
- Base Price
- Price Per Unit
- May Have Discount
August – Average Days to Pay Invoices
Module: Sales Ledger
The second report of the month comes from August. This report enables you to check up on your customer and look at who is the best and most efficient at paying you. It gives a simple four column report which is more than enough information for you to quickly scan your eyes over. The report allows you to filter on the account reference, transaction date and full settlement date. Sage also added a nice calculation at the bottom of the report which gives you an overall average for all the results pulled through.
The report consists of four columns which include the following information:
- Account Reference
- Account Name
- Last Transaction Date
- Average Days to Pay
This is a helpful report if you’re looking for a quick and condensed account of your customers payment turnaround.
September – Sales by Nominal
Module: Sales Order Processing
The last report of the month is September’s edition. It gives you the breakdown of Sales by Nominal Codes. It gives you the quantity of Sales orders for your specified criteria and the value of these. You can filter the report by Customer, Order Number, Document Date and Order/Return Status. So, if you wanted to find out how many sales orders are live on the system for a specific period then this is the report to use.
The following fields are available on this report:
