Sage Peachtree Quantum 2012 Adds Powerful Business Intelligence at an Affordable Price

New Workflow Automation and Customizable Dashboards Bring Even Greater Value for Small Businesses

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - May 18, 2011) - Sage announced today the general availability of Sage Peachtree Quantum 2012, with new additions in dashboard customization, workflow automation and business intelligence, adding even greater management and analysis power at an affordable price. Sage Peachtree Quantum 2012 is part of the broad portfolio of Sage business solutions that service end-to-end business needs.

Sage Peachtree Quantum 2012 offers the simplicity of an integrated accounting solution, with enhanced performance and capacity from five to 40 named users. It's ideal for businesses looking for more power on a modest budget, and adds a mid-way step in the Sage migration path for small businesses who have outgrown the Sage Peachtree core line, but aren't yet ready to move up to a midsized, fully customizable solution such as Sage ERP MAS 90.

"In the current climate, businesses can't afford not to maximize each and every investment in their company, stretch resources and make every dollar count," said Connie Certusi, executive vice president and general manager, small business accounting solutions, Sage. "Sage Peachtree Quantum 2012 is a perfect choice for these firms; an out-of-the-box solution that is fast, flexible, and works the way a small business does. It's perfect for companies who have an eye on growth and are looking for value, or for companies who realize that their current system is more than they need, either from a cost or a transactional standpoint, and are looking to switch."

New features in Sage Peachtree Quantum 2012 include:

My Dashboard Modules: Eleven new modules for building personalized dashboards, including General Journal Entries, Inventory Adjustments, Payroll, Assemblies, Top Vendors, and more, make it easier for employees in a variety of roles to get the quick information they need to work more efficiently. The ability to customize the view by user means that each employee can organize Sage Peachtree to work the way they do, get the info they need when they need it, then move on to the next task.

Workflow Automation: Takes the guesswork out of assigning work across an organization, by setting defaults for all Sage Peachtree transaction statuses, ensuring that work is routed to the appropriate individual at the right time. This helps keep activities humming along, avoiding bottlenecks due to routing issues. If needed, businesses can go back and manually assign routing when processes change.

Easier Install: Now, multi-user installs of Sage Peachtree can run on multiple workstations simultaneously, while greatly reducing the necessary steps to completion. Multiple workstation installations can be kicked off simultaneously over the network, saving downtime in the business and allowing businesses to get back to work faster.

Also new with Sage Peachtree 2012 is the new Sage Peachtree Business Intelligence, a reporting and analysis add-on solution integrated with Sage Peachtree. Using the familiar Microsoft® Excel® interface, it enables more robust reporting and easier access to Sage Peachtree data. It's powerful business intelligence for small businesses at an affordable price. Sage Peachtree Business Intelligence has built-in templates for sales, purchasing and financial reporting to get up and running quickly, but users can design their own reports as well. Because Sage Peachtree Business Intelligence pulls directly from the system without the need for export or manipulation, reports are always current with latest data, so small businesses can more readily analyze the aspects of their business that matter most to them, get the insight they need, and make informed decisions. Customers can also consolidate information from multiple Sage Peachtree companies or other databases for further analysis.

Other new features include the new Sage Advisor, as well as the ability to copy transactions, the new system check, a new vendor management center, enhancements to the management centers for added customization, and expanded payroll fields. For more information, please visit
