Overview 

DBSync's Sage 100 connector is a highly customizable connector. It has the ability to connect your Sage 100 application (which is formerly known as MAS 90) with additional applications - like CRMs, E-Commerce platforms, Order management systems and much more. As a Sage 100 user, you can also use this connector to integrate Sage 100 with other On-demand, On-premise or SaaS-based applications - such as MSCRM, Salesforce, SkuVault, and databases. The connector uses Visual Integrator to move data in, and out of, Sage 100 application.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Does DBSync need to be installed on the same machine as that of Sage 100?

A: DBSync Sage 100 connector can be either configured on the same instance where Sage 100 is installed or, on a remote machine that can access Sage 100 database.

Q: What are the limitations of DBSync integration with Sage 100?

A: There is no real-time integration of data directly from Sage 100 to target systems/application due to the rule imposed by Sage 100 itself. Whenever there is import or export of data from Sage 100 then it should happen through visual integrator as Sage 100 does not expose Apis / web-service for consumption by other applications.

Q: How does DBSync connect to Sage 100?
A: DBSync connects to Sage 100 through Visual Integrator provided by Sage 100 to read data from, and write data out of, the Sage 100.
