System Administration


Sage 300  ERP  System Manager controls access to all Accpac accounting modules and information. It is the hub from which all other modules operate and affects nearly everything you do in your Accpac system – from establishing security to searching for a record within a file. System Manager includes effective tools that ensure data integrity and complete processing and security management, enabling users to work more productively.

System Manager

System Manager also allows Accpac to run through a standard Web browser – without client software – centralising IT management and lowering overall ownership costs. Additionally, System Manager provides employees, customer and partners with secure anytime, anywhere access to Accpac.
