What happened to my Accpac?

Posted by Meredith Gooch on Mon, Oct 22, 2012

Sage renamed all of the Accpac products:

o       Sage ERP Accpac 100 is now Sage 300 Standard ERP.
o       Sage ERP Accpac 200 is now Sage 300 Advanced ERP.
o       Sage ERP Accpac 500 is now Sage 300 Premium ERP.

Sage now has a simpler way to present the increasing levels of product capability available to you. Like luxury automobiles, the numbers associated indicates the sophistication level of the product. For example, a BMW 135 has fewer features than the 5 series.

 

So Sage renamed its core product offerings under the Sage 50, Sage 100, Sage 300, and Sage 500 banners, which in turn helps simplify finding additional Sage solutions that are the right fit for your business, when and if you need them, at any stage in your business growth cycle.

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.

How to Reduce Your Check Processing Time by 50%

Posted by Meredith Gooch on Tue, Oct 04, 2011

When was the last time you increased the speed at which you process anything by 50%? What if you could increase the speed of your accounting procedures by 50%?

Recently, BTerrell Group upgraded Sage ERP Accpac to the latest version for one of our clients, the Dallas Symphony Association. In the process, we also converted them from Pervasive SQL to Microsoft SQL, running in a VMWare 4.1 environment.

In addition to the obvious benefits of the new features and functions, the upgraded version more than doubled the speed at which the Dallas Symphony Association's systems operate while providing fault tolerance to the application.

According to Harriet Young, Accounts Payable Administrator at the Dallas Symphony, the upgrade along with some Accounts Payable automations for the symphony's administration team "reduced our total weekly check processing time by more than 50%."
