New Release of Sage Carpe Diem Will Help Professional Services Organizations Improve Revenue Opportunities

Sage Software Announces New Missing Time Feature at Annual ILTA Education Conference

ORLANDO, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 21, 2006 -- From the International Legal Technology Association (ILTA) Annual Education Conference in Orlando, Sage Software today announced the availability of Sage Carpe Diem 4.6 with a new alert feature that notifies business managers and staff of potential un-logged billable time, providing professional services organizations such as law firms with improved time tracking for more accurate billing. The Missing Time Notification feature will enable these organizations to realize increased revenue opportunities through more accurate and thorough tracking of time and expenses billed to their clients.

With the new version of Sage Carpe Diem, administrators and managers can now define required working time for Sage Carpe Diem users which can then be automatically monitored. An email reminder is automatically sent to the timekeeper when the minimum requirements are not met. In addition, the timekeeper's manager is notified of the missing time when the minimum time requirements are not entered for a defined number of consecutive days.

"By including customer requested features such as Missing Time Notification within Sage Carpe Diem, we are providing legal firms and other professional services organizations with a more intuitive solution to help them better track the precious time that is the lifeline of their operations," said Sam Hunter, director, Sage Carpe Diem. "This new version of Sage Carpe Diem continues the Sage Software commitment to providing our customers with world class software and support to help them better manage their day-to-day activities."

The combination of the new Missing Time Notification alert with the previously available Missing Time Reporter feature within Sage Carpe Diem will provide professional service organizations with an even more competitive solution for capturing time and expenses more accurately, which in turn can help them see improved revenue. Sage Software is providing demonstrations of this new feature at Booth #513 during the ILTA Annual Education Conference in Orlando, Florida this week.
