"Wow are there a lot of choices out there or what?!" With computer workstations as low as $599.00 and as high as $5,999.00, it's difficult to decide on what to buy.

The computer market is very competitive and those low priced computers are great for checking your email at home but they will not be as effective in a business environment. The real reason for the cheap loss leader machines is to draw you in and upgrade you to the PC you really need

We take the guess work out of it all by offering the best built machine at the best price. Please check our machines against our competition using the exact parts we use. Now throw delivery and 1 year onsite warranty on top of that at no additional cost (included in computer Purchase So California only). Our prices could only get lower by using a lower quality hardware part. Labor being the highest cost for most companies, the game plan is to make sure the computer is faster than the end user, but affordable to the company. We stand behind what we sell unconditionally. (Need references? We provide them!)

  • Gives you the ability to bill time and product on the same invoice.


If your company bills clients for services based on employee time spent on projects and activities, you know how important it is for employees to maintain up-to-date and detailed time records. Accurate time reports ensure that your client invoices are correct and complete, that they are processed cost effectively and efficiently, and that they are sent out as quickly as possible.


Timekeeper gives your employees the tools they need to maintain an accurate and comprehensive accounting of their time, wherever they are—whether they are sitting at their desk or out in the field with their Palm OS handheld. With this simple, effective way to track their time, employees can work more efficiently and improve productivity.


Because Timekeeper is fully integrated with your Sage MAS 90 or 200 system, you can process all time entry information into a number of the modules, including Accounts Receivable, Job Cost, Payroll, Sales Order, and Time and Billing. You can even push time into Accounts Receivable, Sales Order, or Time and Billing for billing purposes and push that same time into payroll. In addition, Timekeeper allows for Timeslips integration into any of these Sage MAS 90 and 200 modules.


Timekeeper enables you to track employee time for accurate invoicing, thus enhancing service to your clients, and increasing overall efficiency. It improves company profitability and maintains your competitive edge in today’s marketplace.

Simple, Convenient Time Entry

The system allows employees to enter their time via Timekeeper Local, a stand-alone application. Timekeeper Local "pops up" for quick entry of client time, payroll time, and project time.

Security For purposes of security, users are only allowed to enter or view their own time, unless they are designated as a supervisor.
Efficient Information Processing into Sage MAS 90 and 200

All time information can be processed into Sage MAS 90 and 200 Accounts Receivable, Job Cost, Payroll, Sales Order, and Time and Billing modules. Enjoy the flexibility of selecting the following setup options to meet your company’s needs:

  • Bill time directly into Job Cost

  • Bill time directly in Time and Billing

  • Send time entries directly into Payroll for payroll generation.

  • Bill time directly into Accounts Receivable, Sales Order, Job Cost or Time and Billing and push the time into Payroll.

These setup options are flexible and can be changed each time you pull time entries into Work in Process, so you can push one group of time into Accounts Receivable, select another group and push that into Sales Order.

Approval System Timekeeper gives you the option of having time approved prior to processing into other Sage MAS 90 and 200 modules. You can even set up a secondary approval if desired.

MAS90 Accounting Software | Core Accounting | MAS90 Training | MAS90 Consultant | MAS90

by All Kleer

January 1st, 2013

At the heart of every Sage MAS 90 and 200 system are five core accounting modules:

  • General Ledger
  • Accounts Receivable
  • Accounts Payable
  • Bank Reconciliation
  • Sage FAS Fixed Assets

No other accounting software combines the depth, functionality and ease of use to the degree of the Sage MAS 90 and 200 family of products. Used by themselves, these five modules provide accounting foundation for your business that will maximize your productivity. When seamlessly integrated with any of the solutions below. Sage MAS 90 and 200 become even more powerful - providing solutions for nearly any business management need.

The heart of any accounting system, either manual or computerized, is the General Ledger system. In simple terms, it is the central location in which all bookkeeping and accounting transactions are received (posted), summarized (totaled by account) and processed (adjusted and balanced), resulting in informative financial statements. It is the financial statements, supporting schedules and associated reports generated by a General Ledger system that are critical for timely decision making; therefore, it is imperative that a General Ledger system be powerful, flexible and informative to management, yet still be easy to use and operate.

We have designed our system to allow you to continue to use your current Chart of Accounts without any need to adapt it to the computer. It is likely you can maintain the same account title and numbering scheme you have been accustomed to since the day you started your business. The General Ledger module provides for extensive history and budget information. You can retain up to 99 years of transaction history and/or period-summary history and three separate budget categories (current budget, revised budget and a user-defined budget).

Virtually unlimited financial reporting capabilities are provided. The General Ledger system simplifies divisional/departmental reporting and consolidated income statement printing within a standard, predefined set of financial statements and report formats. Because many companies require the capability to design their own financial reports above and beyond those automatically generated by the system, we have created a powerful, easy-to-use custom financial reporting capability.

You can use the General Ledger Data Exchange feature to import and/or export the Chart of Accounts, budgets and transaction data directly from or to an external file. This feature even allows you to transfer General Ledger postings from one company location to another, or use a spreadsheet product to work on a budget.

Complete Audit Trail and Drill-Down This system provides a complete audit trail of detail activity by printing reports and registers before posting. You can assign a unique batch number to each register, leaving a detailed audit trail.
Flexible Accounting Periods Up to 13 accounting periods in a fiscal year are user-defined. You can specify ending dates for each period.
Flexible Account Numbers

Account numbers can use up to nine alphanumeric characters and you can divide them into as many as three segments for identifying sub-accounts, departments, divisions or locations. You can categorize General Ledger accounts into any numbers of similar account groups (e.g., assets, liabilities, equity, revenue, expenses, etc.).

Multi-Company Consolidation You can consolidate data for any number of separate companies with identical or different Charts of Accounts into a single report.
Non-Financial Accounts

You can maintain non-financial information, such as head count, square footage, unit sales and inventory quantity. You can include non-financial information on custom financial report.

Transaction Detail Inquiry/Drill Down Display detailed transactions for an account at any time, and search for transactions by period, source journal inquiry or comment.
Account Delete/Renumber
This feature allows you to delete, renumber or merge existing account numbers using wildcard characters to mask selected groups of accounts numbers.
Account Masterfile Audit You can use the account masterfile audit report to audit changes, deletions or additions to the account masterfile.
Multi-Year History Retention This option enables you to retain up to 99 years of transaction history and/or period summary history. You may also post to an unlimited number of future fiscal years or reopen a past year, and specify the fiscal year to be used for printing General Ledger reports.
Allocation Entries You can use allocation entries to automatically post an amount from a single source account to multiple destination accounts. The amount to be posted to each of the destination accounts can be calculated based on a percentage allocation or on a quantity such as head count or square footage.
Standard Financial Statements Standard income statement and balance sheet can be produced automatically in departmental or consolidated form. You may include various combinations of actual, budget, budget variance and prior-year information on the standard income statements for the period-to-date and year-to-date.
Custom Financial Statements Virtually unlimited reporting capabilities allow you to meet your exact reporting requirements. Up to 999 custom financial reports may be defined. You may select the type of data to be printed for each column. You can consolidate accounts, round dollar amounts, add or delete text, change titles and descriptions, change print positions, control underlines and print dollar signs and footnotes. You may even produce multi-company consolidation reports or create custom reports for multiple departments.
General Ledger
Bar chart of actual, budget and prior-year activities for a single account or range of accounts provide a visual aid for presenting company financial data. You can also graph all income, expenses or profits by department.
