Any number of reasons may lead you to wish for the search results of GetX Search for Sage 100 ERP to no longer appear in your browser. Perhaps the company is no longer active, or has been sold. Or maybe it’s an archive company and you only want results from your new live company to appear.
No problem. To disable search results for a single company, access that company code within Sage 100 ERP, choose GetX for Sage 100 ERP / Setup / GetX Setup Wizard and de-select the box labeled “Enable Search Results for Company.” That’s it.

What sort of things can GetX make faster? We’ve found at least 32 things in the Sage 100 Idea Site alone that GetX can make faster. Read more here.
What is searchable by GetX? GetX indexes dozens of tables using the Sage 100 ERP business object framework, plus the Payroll Employee Masterfile. This excludes Payroll, Job Cost, Work Order, Time Card and MRP.
If I have 3rd party add-ons, can they be searched? Any data field added, whether a User Defined Field or a field added by a 3rd party developer, that appends the data dictionary of a searchable table can be enabled for search.
Where does the indexed data reside? The GetX indexed database is created in the ..\MAS90\xxx_GX\ folder where ‘xxx’ is the company code.
How large is the indexed database? The indexed database will be roughly one-quarter to one-half of the size of the data files being indexed.
How long does it take for GetX to index the data? At the time of installation, initial indexing could take several hours. Note that users will need to be out of the system for an extended length of time during this process. xkzero recommends installing the software after business hours.
Subsequent indexing, however, will happen unattended and will only take minutes or seconds.
How frequently is the data indexed? You can control the frequency of data indexing, ranging from once per minute to once per week.
What are the system requirements for running GetX, including the free trial? —Sage 100 ERP version 4.5+
—Server: Microsoft .NET 2.0 or higher —No special hardware requirements in addition to the Sage published guidelines for Sage 100 ERP
How do I obtain GetX support? Clients with current maintenance subscriptions, and those installing the free trial can send requests any time via email: GetXsupport@xkzero.com.
Or, call phone support at 847-416-2009 from 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 pm CST.

Maybe you’re not aware of the Idea Site run and monitored by Sage. It’s one of the resources they use to help determine which features to add to future releases.
As of this writing, the community has shared 1,740 ideas and cast 27,464 votes in hopes that Sage will give them ample consideration. (The #1 requested idea? Bring back PDF versions of user manuals: 271 votes. Seriously.)
Consider this: Out of the 1,740 ideas on the site, 360 of them reference ideas related to “search,” “find,” “locate,” “look for,” “look up” and “access.”
In other words, 21% of the user ideas submitted to improve Sage 100 ERP can potentially be addressed by a universal search application.
Furthermore, those 360 search-relatedideas generated 11,889 votes, representing 43% of all votes cast on Sage’s idea site.
I’m not suggesting that each and everyone of these ideas would be solved by universal search. We have not researched each request in that level of depth, but the point is, a great deal of user frustration could be resolved with one solution.
Did you know that universal search functionality is now standard in Sage ERP X3 Version 7? That’s right. Furthermore, Sage chose the same search technology (Lucene) xkzero selected for use with GetX back in 2011. We think that’s pretty cool.
Here is a quick list of 32 of those feature requests for which GetX would pretty much be a no-brainer solution:
What does this all mean? One thing it means is there are hundreds of thousands of people that use Sage 100 ERP who spend way too much time looking for data. The good news is there is a solution that can be installed and set up in about 30 minutes that would save a lot of misery.
There is a lot of talk about the cloud and ERP, to the point that this is where most of the industry seems to be spending all of its energy and money. In our opinion, though, there are a great many areas where ERP can be improved to truly help small and mid-sized businesses grow. One of these ideas is universal search. We’re doing what we can to make that a standard feature for ERP. Mark my word, one day people will expect this from their system.
By the way, if you would like to know how many ideas meet the criteria of ‘cloud’ in the Sage site? Two. Cheers!

It’s mid-2014, and you are still navigating your ERP menu system? (Yes, we expected this embarrassed silence and averted eyes.) It’s ok. You must have a good excuse, though, right? Perhaps these reasons strike a chord:
#1 – I am really, really good at navigating Windows Explorer, and my ERP is structured just like it!
#4 – “I know it will take me 11 clicks before I can key in the data I’m looking for, but hey– it’s the same 11 clicks every time. I’m used to it.”
#5 – I’m paid by the hour.
#6 – My customer service training manual says: When you are unable to find the data in the system, cheerfully tell the customer that you will investigate the matter and will contact them when more information becomes available. Customers won’t think about calling our competitors while they are waiting, right? I mean, we sent them chocolate once. Isn’t that enough?
Want to keep on navigating your ERP all the old fashioned way? Have at it!
