SAGE BUSINESSWORKS 2012
EVEN MORE WAYS TO OPTIMIZE YOUR ACCOUNTING PROCEDURES
Packed with powerful new features and enhancements, Sage BusinessWorks 2012 can give your business the edge it needs to compete even more successfully. Because the improvements in each version of the program are made with customers in mind, this latest edition again offers you increased efficiency and productivity.
Now you can expedite processing of customer payments with fully integrated credit card functionality compliant with Payment Application-Data Security Standards (PA-DSS). Pay your vendors faster and easier than ever with enhanced payment entry screens. And get to the details in General Ledger financial reports through extensive, customizable drill-down and drill-to capabilities.
YOUR KEY TO
GREATER PROFIT POTENTIAL
Sage BusinessWorks simplifies and streamlines operational processes and daily activities. The 2012 version takes those capabilities to the next level, improving performance and intelligence and giving you additional insights into critical metrics. As a result, you can make better informed business management decisions with an eye to increasing productivity and profitability:
Customers on a current Sage Business Care plan are automatically eligible to download more information and benefit from all of these new features. It’s just one of the many benefits of being a member. If you’re not a current subscriber, select the plan (Gold, Silver or Bronze) that best suits the level of support you need. You’ll gain fast, convenient access to Sage Software Online, their award-winning online support knowledgebase, world-class phone support team, automatic technology system upgrades, software maintenance releases and tax table updates (for Payroll module customers). You’re sure to find a support plan that’s perfect for your particular requirements.
Enjoy easier, safer customer payments with new PA-DSS-compliant, integrated credit card processing.
With comprehensive, integrated PA-DSS-compliant functionality through Sage Exchange, Sage BusinessWorks 2012 makes posting credit card transactions as simple as posting cash transactions. It’s all done simultaneously so you save time, energy and resources by eliminating the tiresome, error-prone chore of rekeying data. You get rid of the extra steps previously required to process credit card transactions and then post them, and reduce the risk of credit card security breaches that can damage your company’s good name — as well as cost significant dollars in Payment Card Industry (PCI) fines.
See the details faster with new, customizable General Ledger financial reports
Focus on obtaining the information you need with new drill-down capabilities in General Ledger while customizing standard reports, including adding/removing fields, rearranging fields, printing in landscape mode and changing sort/filter options. You’ll be able to drill down to the account detail on the Trial Balance and consolidate some accounts on the Income Statement while still providing full details on other accounts. Sage BusinessWorks 2012 also allows easy manipulation of data to send many reports to Microsoft Excel without formatting changes.
Better manage your payments with an upgraded user interface to the Accounts Payable manual invoice selection
Gain more control and visibility into your payment process when you select vendor invoices for payment. A single screen enables you to quickly and easily choose invoices from a list for a single vendor or multiple vendors, so you can take advantage of available discounts while ensuring invoice due dates are not missed. When you finish, view all invoices selected for payment for all vendors along with the total number of invoices and the total dollar amount. The application of open credits has also been simplified. Now you can automatically apply open credits to the oldest invoices first or apply them to specific invoices of your choice.
Save time and reduce mouse clicks, thanks to the new “Enter Payments” user interface
Selecting invoices for a single vendor just got a whole lot easier now that you can choose from a list of all invoices for a specific vendor displayed on a single screen. You can also decrease the mouse clicks previously required to complete the payment process. No more navigating to multiple screens to select your invoice; pay all invoices with a single click or opt for individual invoices by selecting the check box.
Stop tedious searching for a specific invoice with a new “Find Invoice” field
Tired of what seems like endless scrolling through a long list of invoices just to find a particular one? Depending on the number of customer receipts you need to post, it can be a lengthy and monotonous process — but not any more. With the new find feature in Post Receipts, you can quickly locate the invoice you want and then easily post that receipt.
Improve the accuracy and timeliness of tax reporting with Aatrix payroll tax form integration
Make your tax form processing more efficient and organized. Tighter integration with Aatrix means you no longer need worksheets. Just select the form and fields autofill as appropriate — no more typing. For additional savings, Sage Business Care customers can also take advantage of free Federal W-2 e-filing. You’ll have peace of mind knowing your tax forms are accurate, up-to-date and correctly filed.
Reduce printing, stuffing and postage costs with direct deposit payroll check e-mailing
Go greener while saving more time and money! With the new e-mail address field in Maintain Employees, you can e-mail direct deposit paycheck stubs to employees who have an e-address. You’ll save money and resources by eliminating printing, folding, stuffing, applying postage and mailing.
Cut paper waste with the new “Report Groups Preview” function
Recycling is great, but not filling the bins in the first place is even better. This new option lets you see how reports will appear prior to printing, so you no longer have to print to validate the setup options. You’ll conserve paper — as well as time, energy and frustration.
Access real-time Sage technical support with a live chat link
Have a quick question you need answered now, but don’t want to exit the program to get it? Now there’s no need to interrupt your workflow — Sage Business Care customers get fast access to a support representative for simple questions by clicking the new in-product live chat link (from the welcome page or new chat menu option).
