Posted by Meredith Gooch on Tue, Nov 06, 2012

Simplify Processes. Improve Visibility. Stay Connected.

1. Reduce time navigating through your system with Visual Process Flows, which you can customize by user roles and for your business.


2. Improve productivity with enhancements throughout the system such as: Entered By, On Hold Reason, and Requested By fields in Order Entry; copy order and create PO directly from order entry; and reverse GL batches.


3. Enhance usability with easier to read tables, an improved Finder, and improved end-user
documentation.


4. Get the information you need, faster! New Inquiries for operations modules facilitate quick
access to customized lists, which provide the answers you need and lower custom reporting costs.


5. Simplify update processes using the new Sage Advisor Update.


6. Save time when processing payments - capture pre-authorized payments during shipment entry or invoice entry, and invoice multiple pre-authorized payments in a single batch.


7. Make informed decisions with comprehensive reporting utilizing the new Sage Intelligence
Reporting financial report designer and reporting tree capabilities.


8. Expand customized reporting capabilities with the updated SAP Crystal Reports® runtime engine for .NET Framework 4, and new options in several standard reports.


9. Accelerate growth and stay connected with Sage CRM enhancements that improve information flow between the front and back offices.


10. Efficiently and cost effectively manage the shipping process and rate shop with an optional service that streamlines shipping and reduces costs.

Sage ERP Accpac Version 5.5

Payroll Tax Update

 

Payroll Tax Update

The support policy for Sage ERP Accpac (soon to be called Sage 300 ERP) includes the current version and one previous version. In addition, a 90-120-day grace period is available for anyone currently transitioning from version 5.5 to a supported version (5.6, 6.0, or the soon to be released 6.1 version).

 

Sage has promised to release the Payroll Tax Updates for Sage ERP Accpac version 5.5 through January 2013. From there, anyone running 5.5 with Payroll will need to upgrade to a supported version. If you are running version 5.5, contact us now to plan ahead for your upgrade so you will continue to receive the critical payroll information you need.

 

Contact Anthony Cox for more information at 866-647-2611 ext 127 or email anthony.cox@bterrell.com.

Sage Accpac ERP Tax Update Information

Posted by Meredith Gooch on Mon, Nov 01, 2010

The next tax update is scheduled to release mid-December. With that in mind, here are a few things to consider when doing the tax update:

  • You don’t have to close the year.
  • It is recommended that you install the tax update as soon as possible. It can be installed before the end of 2010.
  • You have to install AND activate the tax update.
  • Make a backup before you activate the tax update.

If you are currently running Sage Accpac ERP Version 5.4 and you plan on continuing to use the payroll module in 2011, give us a call to plan your upgrade to 5.5 or 5.6 because Sage will no longer provide the updates required for calculating 2011 payroll for version 5.4 going forward. They will only provide updated forms for 2010 tax filing.
