Earlier this week the arrest of a number of owner operators of 7-eleven stores in New York and Virginia was widely reported. The alleged fraud included millions of dollars in unpaid wages to illegal immigrants using sham social security numbers. The report is another in a long line of identify theft reports we hear about with increasing occurence.
If you manage your payroll in-house as a Sage 100 ERP (MAS 90 / 200) customer, it is more important than ever for you to ensure that the social security number presented to you by a new employee has not been used by a current or former employee. Unfortunately the Sage 100 ERP payroll module does not have a built in mechanism to check this for you. In order to review for duplicate social security numbers you must compare employee by employee. And if you manage multiple companies for payroll – and also maintain archival companies for old payroll years, you could spend a long time trying to gain this assurance.
However, with GetX Search for Sage 100 ERP you can simply enter in the social security number into the GetX browser and you’ll instantly find out if you have a duplicate, potentially saving you hours every time you hire a new employee. A free 30-day trial ofGetX is available for you to download now at
Here is a brief video showing how that is done.
How about that – universal search – and a little peace of mind. firstname.lastname@example.org
