ATLANTA- May 18, 2011 – Sage announced today the availability of the Sage Peachtree 2012 product line, part of the broad portfolio of Sage business management solutions that service end-to-end business needs. A perennial favorite of small businesses and accountants, Sage Peachtree 2012 provides small businesses with instant customizable access to critical information that makes billing customers, making proactive decisions and controlling profitability easier than ever, helping small businesses to stay competitive in an ever-evolving business landscape.
“Small businesses contend with a host of issues, from increased compliance requirements and rising costs to staying competitive, in many cases with reduced staff. They need a business management system that is easy to use but brings them the rich insight they need to manage effectively,” said Connie Certusi, executive vice president and general manager, small business accounting solutions, Sage North America. “Sage Peachtree 2012 easily delivers that insight they need so they can focus on what they do best: running their businesses.”
New with Sage Peachtree 2012 is the Sage Advisor, which helps small businesses maximize the value of their software investment, whether they are new to Sage Peachtree or have been using it for several years. The Sage Advisor helps them by following usage patterns and intuitively offering brief, personalized “show me how” demos and guided tips and tricks, prompting small businesses to discover new ways to simplify processes and obtain valuable business advice. The tips can be saved for later review or dismissed completely if preferred.
Sage Peachtree 2012 also helps small business owners and managers:
Better manage data backup and other system processes: With the new System Check, small businesses can quickly and easily monitor system health and resolve potential issues before they affect productivity or compromise data. The System Check gives helpful advice around last backup, system memory, database size, and other key indicators, all at a glance, potentially heading off minor issues before they become big headaches.
Improve control over vendor relationships: A customized Vendor Management Center dashboard helps users process large quantities of information about a single vendor at a glance. It enables quick research, comparisons, and decision making, helping small businesses analyze past transactions to make informed decisions, negotiate better rates with vendors, or even switch vendors when necessary.
Get richer insight into the business with new Sage Peachtree Business Intelligence: Sage Peachtree Business Intelligence is an add-on reporting and analysis solution integrated with Sage Peachtree. Using the familiar Microsoft® Excel® interface, it enables more robust reporting and easier access to Sage Peachtree data, providing affordable, simple Business Intelligence for small businesses. Sage Peachtree Business Intelligence has built-in templates for sales, purchasing and financial reporting to get up and running quickly, but users can design their own reports as well. Because Sage Peachtree Business Intelligence pulls directly from the system without the need for export or manipulation, reports are always current with latest data, so small businesses can more readily analyze the aspects of their business that matter most to them, get the insight they need, and make informed decisions. Customers can also consolidate information from multiple Sage Peachtree companies or other databases for further analysis.
