Sage North America today introduced Sage BusinessVision Accounting 2011, with enhancements focused on point-of-sale, Canadian payroll reporting and processing, and sales tax tracking and compliance.
Sage BusinessVision is modular and available in four editions – Limited, Small Business, Standard, and Client/Server.

The POS module is compatible with popular touch screen and POS hardware, and integrates with the Sage Exchange payments system for optional credit and debit card processing functionality. Once a user indicates in Sage BusinessVision that a customer is using a credit or debit card for payment, Sage Exchange handles the entire credit or debit card payment process, while recording the payment in Sage BusinessVision.

Sage BusinessVision 2011 was also designed to manage the complexities of Harmonized Sales Tax tracking by allowing users to define provincial exemption rules for each inventory item and giving them the option to modify tax rates on purchase orders for drop ship items.

The latest version also helps simplify the annual Canadian payroll reporting process by enabling electronic filing for various forms and statements. New features for completing T4 reporting include the option to modify T4 values before printing and the ability to print T4 Summary reports.

In addition, Web-enabled Sage eBusinessVision manages e-commerce activities and integrates with Sage BusinessVision.

“This software release highlights Sage’s focus on the customer experience, since nearly all features of Sage BusinessVision 2011 directly resulted from customer feedback,” said Sam Hunter, senior vice president and general manager for Sage BusinessVision. “Sage Business Vision 2011 is full of improvements that can save time for a small or midsized business, while making it easier for that business’ customers to do business with them, driving both customer satisfaction and profitability.”
