Sage Software Announces New Accountants' Network Member Locator

New Tool Connects Businesses With Local Sage Software Accountants' Network Members Nationwide

FT. LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwire - September 20, 2007) - Further expanding its support for members of the Sage Software Accountants' Network, Sage Software announced today a new member locator tool, accessible to the public via multiple Sage Software Web sites. The timing of this announcement coincides with the 22nd Annual FICPA Show, today and tomorrow in Ft. Lauderdale, Fl.

The goal of the new tool is to help connect end users for many Sage Software products in the U.S. -- such as Peachtree by Sage, Sage MAS 90, Sage Timberline Office and Sage Accpac -- with Accountants' Network members in their area, via product Web sites. Sage Software product users now will be able to quickly and easily find local assistance when they need it.

"We are constantly looking for new ways to assist our accountant partners. With this new tool, our Accountants' Network members will gain great exposure to a variety of potential local clients on multiple Sage Software Web sites, assisting them with their marketing efforts," said Heather Scarpero, director, Sage Software Accountants' Network. "At the same time, businesses using Sage Software products will now be able to quickly identify accountants and bookkeepers in their area to assist them with their accounting needs."

Small and mid-sized organizations often rely on their accountants for insight and suggestions on how to more effectively manage their businesses through technology. The Accountants' Network offers resources to increase technical competency and help grow an accountant's practice by providing informative communications and resources, product discounts and membership benefits related to the Sage Software family of products. Through the Accountants' Network, accounting professionals also have access to Sage Software products that include accounting and business management software, support services and automatically delivered upgrades and updates, including tax tables when applicable. In addition to software, members receive a complimentary listing in the new Accountants' Network member locator.

The 22nd annual FICPA Show, held at the Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center in Ft. Lauderdale, is expected to draw 1,200 CPAs. Sage Software will feature live demonstrations during the show in booth 207 at the Convention Center, showing several of the products from its broad portfolio: Peachtree by Sage Accounting, ACT! by Sage, Sage Accpac, and Sage MAS, as well as Sage Payroll Services. Representatives from the Sage Software Accountants' Network will also be on hand in the booth to answer questions.
