Small and midsized business software provider Sage has launched version 6.5 of its Accpac HR series. The enhanced solution offers such features as real-time data updates, more employee self-service options, and additional reporting capabilities, along with an improved database.
Employees can now use self-service tools to sign up for benefits during open enrollment and request time off. Managers can view the time-off requests and approve or disapprove them online.

Additional reports have been added to the HR Series Report Wizard, including: a new EEO-4 report, the New Beneficiary report, OSHA 300, 300A and 301 reports, and an improved remittance report to support consolidated billing.

The new version also includes updated Cobra administration, more detailed information in the help system, upgraded importing tools, and integration with such business applications as Sage Accpac ERP 5.1 or later, Sage Pro ERP 7.1 or later, Sage MAS 90 4.0, and ADP PC Payroll for Windows 4.0, 4.5 and 5.0.

The new HR software ships with Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine as the back-end database--a new industry standard--replacing the Jet (MS Access) database in previous versions.

Other enhancements include multi-company support in Applicant Manager, a new Employee Picture report, and improved security for hiding employee Social Security numbers.

Pricing starts at $1,000 for a 25-employee system and scales upward.
