Peachtree 2010 offers an excellent built-in Help function that assists new users. Though not industry-specific, it can act as a guide through general software setup. All new Peachtree users will receive 30 days of free support upon product registration. Peachtree offers numerous support plans. Users will also have access to the online Peachtree Knowledgebase and the Live Chat Assistance. The Peachtree Resource Center is also easily accessible from the desktop, which provides access to tips, training information and a detailed list of what’s new in the current version.
Also available is the Sage Advisor, which provides employees and volunteers with a guide to best practices, helping them discover software tips that make ease system navigation. Training options include self-study guides, numerous tutorials, as well as onsite training provided by local resellers and certified technicians.
Peachtree by Sage Premium Accounting for Nonprofits currently costs $344.99 for a single-user system and $749.99 for a five-user system. While Peachtree does not provide as many of the nonprofit specifics found in some of the other products reviewed here, it is ideal for smaller nonprofits that have no need for the complex reporting and tracking functionality that larger organizations require.
