Sage 100 Contractor Delivers New Capabilities Aimed at Helping Canadian Contractors Gain Added Efficiencies

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 18, 2013) - Sage North America today announced that it has added new capabilities to Sage 100 Contractor that are geared specifically toward Canadian contractors. Built specifically for the construction industry, Sage 100 Contractor provides contractors with a single software solution to manage and control every aspect of a construction business from estimating and job costing to project management, service management and more.

The latest version of Sage 100 Contractor now offers companies doing business in Canada the ability to process payroll, electronically file payroll-related reporting (such as ROE forms, T4s and T5018s), and provide electronic fund transfer and direct deposit options. Companies will also be able to handle federal and provincial taxes such as GST, HST and PST and effectively manage holdbacks. 

The release additionally provides companies with mobile access to project information anytime, anywhere through new integration with Sage Construction Anywhere, a cloud-based solution to help companies better manage their field operations.

"For more than 10 years, Sage 100 Contractor has provided us the construction-specific capabilities we need to efficiently run our business," said Sharon Jacob, CFO, Jacob's Construction. "From job costing and project management to helping us effectively manage our cash flow, it's been an essential tool in helping us stay on top of day-to-day operations and achieve profitability. Now, with the ability to process Canadian tax reporting and our payroll, we'll be able to handle it all within one program." 

Recent releases of Sage 100 Contractor have also provided the thousands of customers using the solution with an updated user interface, a new project work center, and new capabilities to more easily see the status of critical elements in their business. "We appreciate the visibility that Sage 100 gives us into the health of our business," adds Jacob. "Alerts automatically notify us when our bank balances fall too low, and with the Sage 100 dashboard we can instantly see the status of our receivables and all of our cash accounts. The construction-oriented reporting Sage 100 provides was also a key reason for our move away from a generic accounting system."
