The Sage 100 Fund Accounting Version 2013.4 upgrade introduces new features and functionality, including Sage Mobile, which provides customers with an application to view account balances, approve requisitions or view detailed reports, among other functions. The app is available at the iTunes App Store and Google Play for smartphones and tablets.
In addition to the mobile app, the upgrade includes an automated email communications feature, which allows users to send customers an up-to-the-minute statement of their account via email at any point in the billing cycle. Other enhancements have been made to bank reconciliation functionality and human resources tracking for holidays and employee certifications.
“Increasingly, nonprofit organizations are turning to automation to meet the growing demand to reduce costs and manage key functions,” said Sage Nonprofit Solutions vice president of product management and marketing Erin Shy. “This product upgrade includes many enhancements that simplify accounting and human resources tasks, plus improve time management and restriction compliance for nonprofit organizations.”
In February, Sage Group plc sold Sage Nonprofit Solutions to the private equity group and the nonprofit accounting product still bears the Sage name, though a change is planned later this year.
In addition, while it will not be present at this year’s Sage Summit conference in July, Sage Nonprofit Solutions is planning its own user and partner conference in November.
