How to Install and Set Up GetX Search for Sage 100 ERP

Installing and setting up GetX Search for Sage 100 ERP is a very straight forward process and can be performed successfully by anyone familiar with typical Sage 100 ERP installation procedures. Allow just 15-20 minutes to complete all the steps.

Prerequisites to installing GetX:

  1. Get administrative access to the server where Sage 100 ERP is installed.
  2. Obtain a network login and password and a Sage 100 ERP login and password. You need both of these logins to set up the indexing engine post-install. Make sure they have passwords that do not change frequently. Also, both logins should have administrative rights.
  3. Ensure your server meets the requirements of Microsoft .NET 2.0 or higher. Most servers current with MS service updates will already satisfy this need.

Instructional Video

Here is an instructional video (4 minutes 47 seconds in length) that shows all the steps needed to install and set up GetX Search for Sage 100 ERP. In case you didn’t know that Sage 100 ERP used to be called both MAS 90 and MAS 200, when the video says “MAS 90,” it means “Sage 100 ERP.”

Recap

Keys to a successful installation of GetX:

  1. Download the appropriate version from www.xkzero.com/ERP_search. (It supports Sage 100 ERP Versions 2017 back to 4.5 and the installer will work with Sage 100c, including Standard, Advanced and Premium versions)
  2. Install GetX like any other Sage 100 ERP module. (This must be performed on the Sage 100 ERP server.)
  3. Activate the GetX Module in Company Maintenance for each company for which you wish to perform data searches.
  4. Visit Role Maintenance and make appropriate settings for user role groups.
  5. Visit Modules/GetX /Setup/System Settings. Make any changes to the defaults, as appropriate, and click on “Register” to obtain your initial 30-day free license.
  6. Visit Modules/GetX/Setup/GetX Setup Wizard. Make any changes to the defaults as appropriate.
  7. Browse the ..\MAS90\GX folder and run GetXIndexService.exe. Right-click and select “Run as administrator.” Enter valid network login and password.
  8. Set the timer to indicate how frequently you wish to index data. Run the initial indexing.

Note: The initial indexing may take some time, potentially an hour or more, depending on the size of your database and the caliber of your server. Subsequent indexing will take place silently, behind the scenes by setting up the timer during the installation process.

If, for any reason, you need to remove the software, find instructions for uninstalling GetX here.

The Only Time Universal Search Matters in Your Accounting System

People ask us when it’s a good time to use GetX, our so-called universal search tool for Sage 100 ERP.

This is what we tell them: “Use GetX when you know what you’re looking for.” Also, when what you’re looking for is not calculated data, there is a good chance GetX is the way to go.

In other words, if what you’re seeking is actually in the system (as opposed to a report or a graph that gets calculated when you run a report or a dashboard), GetX can likely provide the information, and more choices about what to do with it, faster and with less hassle than the way you’re using Sage 100 ERP today.

GetX - When You Know What You're Looking For

GetX – When You Know What You’re Looking For

It’s a whole new way of thinking about your system. A better way. Better not in the sense that every single little thing you do will be improved, but better in the way that everyone on your team, by using universal search, will be more confident with Sage 100 ERP. They will work faster, find it easier to detect and correct data errors in the system, and be more confident using the system.

Consider why we use Google in the first place. We turn to Google because when we know what we’re looking for, we likely don’t want to type this in more than once: http://www.whattheheckis07rt7thisiml00king4.com/donttryme/

The same holds true with another huge collection of data—your accounting/ERP system. Whether your Sage 100 ERP database is 255 million MB or 1.5 TB, universal search will make your system better.

While others navigate menus, folders, tasks, screens, tabs, and buttons, GetX users simply enter the data they know they are seeking and immediately start taking action.

Which do you think is faster? Which do you think is better for customer service, or internal communication? If you were training a new employee to use your Sage 100 ERP system, do you think they would gain more confidence, faster, if they could rely on a search tool similar to Google?

By comparison, traditional navigation seems a little like keeping the data behind a bolted door with 5 padlocks.

In Customer Service, Does Speed Matter?

To your customer, speed just might matter. In our social media-driven world, customers expect you to be able to respond immediately to their requests.

So if you’re dinking around the menus and screens of your order entry system, hunting and pecking for the information your customer needs, don’t assume they’re happy to wait.

Fortunately for users of Sage 100 ERP, you’ll be able to respond to your customers in a snap with GetX. If you haven’t had the experience of a Google-like tool in your system, you’re making your customer wait unnecessarily. Contact xkzero at info@xkzero.com or call us at 847-416-2009 for your free trial.
