the standard Sage 100 system. If a customer will
be extending bly:Mobile to users who typically do

may be required.
Customers can purchase fewer users of bly:Mobile
than they have of Sage 100, but the minimum
number of blyMobile users is 5 users for full

bly:Mobile if our representatives would only be accessing

expanded as necessary. The Lite version is for
Is it an app?
bly:Mobile isn’t really an “app” as it’s not loaded
onto the smartphone, it’s installed on the server
at their office and it will view Sage 100 over a
web browser. We describe it as a product
Blytheco developed to access Sage 100 ERP
over a web browser.

If bly:Mobile users are connecting directly in to our
server, would we need to have the necessary firewalls
There is a separate web server piece which can
be installed either on the same server as Sage
100 or on a different server. The firewall needs to
be configured to allow outside access to the web
server and internal access between the web
server and the Sage 100 server.
Our current server can use either an IIS platform or
Apache. Does it matter?
Apache is a simpler installation and, as a
result, offers a less expensive installation
option. IIS is supported, however, for an
additional $1000 due to some additional
What kind of time frame for setup, install and training are
we looking at once we commit to this purchase?

When using bly:Mobile, where does all of the
information connect / sync? Is it in the cloud, on
our current server?
bly:Mobile makes all changes in real time directly
on the MAS/Sage server.
When printing with bly:Mobile, can invoices be printed to a
small Bluetooth printer (like a credit card receipt printer)?
bly:Mobile cannot print directly to devices. A PDF
is generated on the bly:Mobile/MAS server which
is then sent to the device. The user could then
print that PDF to any connected printer.
Do the invoices printed when mobile
convert to PDF?
Yes. The actual conversion to PDF happens on
the server which then sends the resulting PDF to
the remote device.
Can the current modules capture
signatures on an order?
bly:Mobile cannot capture signatures.
Is there a solution that would allow the customers
to directly enter their orders into Sage 100?
This not permitted with bly:Mobile per Sage's
license agreement. Only employees of a
company can be given a Sage 100 user - Sage's
e-Business Manager will allow orders to be
entered over the website.

bly:Mobile will technically work on a smartphone
or tablet device without buying the smartphone
component, but we never recommend it as we
have modified the screens to fit the device. If
you didn’t have the Smartphone component
you’d be doing way too much scrolling to see
anything. Not a fun experience. The menus are
also nicely laid out for easy viewing when you
have the Smartphone component.
