CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - October 10, 2007) - Sage Software today announced Sage Compliance Trainer, a new online training solution designed to help businesses and organizations satisfy government-mandated requirements for employee education on workplace harassment and sexual discrimination. The company's Employer Solutions business unit is demonstrating Sage Compliance Trainer, along with its award-winning Sage Abra HRMS and Sage TimeSheet solutions, at the 10th Annual HR Technology Conference & Exhibition, being held this week at the Navy Pier in Chicago.
