Accountants' Network Extends Vertical Industry Reach With Additional Software Title for Construction Firms

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - March 17, 2008) - Sage Software announced today that it has added Sage Master Builder, a software suite designed for construction firms to manage their business operations, to the range of titles available to Accountants' Network members. Sage Master Builder extends the Accountants' Network's vertical industry offerings and joins a number of Sage Software products already available to accountants in public practice, including Sage Timberline Office, Sage Accpac ERP, Sage MAS 90 and Sage MAS 200, Peachtree by Sage, and Timeslips by Sage, among others.

Sage Master Builder combines estimating, project/production management, accounting, and reporting for a fully integrated construction management solution, ideal for small to medium size construction firms. Current Sage Master Builder Authorized Associates will automatically become Premier Advisors in the Sage Software Accountants' Network, with access to all the additional benefits Accountants' Network members receive, such as a listing in the Member Locator, GoToMyPC® for remote access, discounts on training, and more.

"The support services that we offer to Accountants' Network members focus on addressing real business needs, like our partnership with LeapFILE, a leading secure file transfer provider, and discounted Search Engine Marketing assistance, in addition to software titles that keep accountants up to date on Sage Software products," said Heather Scarpero, director, Sage Software Accountants' Network. "Including Sage Master Builder in the Accountants' Network library of software options will help accountants build stronger knowledge about construction industry business processes and how the right software can improve their clients' operations."

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.
