In addition to the single framework, commercial, nonprofit, and government users will also be able to take advantage of Sage Advisor technology — a system that automatically checks for software updates to help keep current Sage Business Care plan customers in compliance with the latest regulations. The updated product also combines over 300,000 IRS tax and GAAP rules as well as more than 50 depreciation methods.
Government and nonprofit customers will now also benefit from features previously only available to commercial customers, including the ability for users to quickly access advice on industry terminology, best practices and reasons to choose one option over another; improved find and replace functionality; a customizable asset list view with drag and drop column organization; export of the asset list view directly in to Microsoft Excel; a central location for reports, batch reporting and access to favorite reports; and the ability to attach PDFs to assets.
“Our goal is to help businesses realize their ambitions, and a positive customer experience goes a long way to achieve this. To that end, we started by simplifying our product lines so the product names as well as the buying process are easier to understand,” explained Sage midmarket solutions executive vice president Joe Langner. “We then conducted extensive usability testing with Sage Fixed Assets customers to ensure the look and feel of Sage Fixed Assets 2013 isn’t just pretty, but also highly functional and intuitive.”
