ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - Apr 24, 2013) - Sage North America announced today the availability of Sage 50 Construction Accounting, part of the Sage 50 Accounting 2014 product line. Sage 50 Construction Accounting provides small construction firms and contractors with industry-specific accounting features, along with powerful and flexible tools that provide insights and the control they need.

Part of the Sage portfolio of products designed for the construction industry, Sage 50 Construction Accounting 2014 is easier to use than ever, providing small construction firms and specialty contractors new features and improvements aimed at assisting them in the long-term management of their businesses through new reports, customizable dashboards and usability enhancements.

A recent Sage SMB Survey on Mobile Devices found that 85 percent of construction firm business decision makers believe that mobile technology is benefiting their businesses. Using a built-in integration with the new administrative portal for the Sage Exchange payments platform, Sage 50 allows construction firms and contractors to accept mobile payments using smartphones from their clients on-site before, during or after a project. Once the payment has been accepted, the data flows seamlessly back to Sage 50, eliminating data entry which not only reduces travel and energy costs, but is also a time saver.

"Despite improvements in the economy, it's still important for small construction firms and contractors to use their time efficiently and keep tabs on their operations in order to stay competitive in a constantly evolving business landscape," said Connie Certusi, executive vice president and general manager at Sage Small Business Accounting Solutions. "Sage 50 Construction Accounting not only offers small construction firms and contractors the ability to accept payments anywhere, anytime, but the solution also provides them with instant access to key information that makes getting paid, making proactive decisions and controlling profitability easier than ever."

Core capabilities include progress billing, retainage, labor burden calculations, work-in-progress reporting and many other features to help small construction firms and contractors maximize their investment and to stay on track.
