Has any topic in our lifetime had such an impact on so many, and so dominated the news cycle, as the COVID-19 pandemic?

For many of us lucky enough to still have a job, one of the biggest changes has been the sudden shift to working solely from home.

  • Check out our recent Orchid Goes Remote news article. It's a case study of our own business, but might also be relevant to you.
  • Our new Remote Working Solution Page is a good place to start if you are looking for products that can help your Sage 300 clients in this brave new world.

  • If you missed our recent "Going Remote" webinar, you can now watch the Smarter Remote Working video.
  • Are you planning a Remote Working campaign for your client base? We're working on a Marketing Resource Kit that might help. We'll send a separate email about this in the coming days.
The following are still in testing but you can expect to see them in the not too distant future:
  • Inter-Entity (Cash Management): Ability to process bank reversals.
  • Extender: Improvements to the Workflow console; Ability to use CTRL-F to filter grid screens.
  • EFT Processing: Our first Web Screens! (Plus various minor enhancements.)
I just deployed an Extender script for a client and am loving how it works. Looks like Extender is going to be an integral part of every non-trivial implementation after this!

Thanks to COVID-19 we won't be travelling until further notice, but that doesn't mean we can't stay in touch!
