Industry Leading Time and Billing Software Offers New Features to Help Professional Service Businesses Better Manage Billable Activities

ATLANTA, GA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 2, 2005 -- Sage Software today announced the general availability of Timeslips by Sage 2006 with several new and enhanced features designed to help small to medium-sized professional service businesses save time and increase their ability to complete billable activities.

"With Timeslips 2006, we've addressed customer requests to enhance features to make them easier to use and more intuitive, continuing our mission to provide a high quality product," said Jim Portner, vice president of product management, Sage Software. "Timeslips is very popular with legal practitioners, and because it is so versatile and feature-rich, it is a very effective solution for many professionals who bill for their services or time."

The ability to reprint partially paid or unpaid bills in one step is one of several highly anticipated customer-requested features in Timeslips 2006. To assist with the analysis of information stored within Timeslips, this release also includes the ability to export reports to a formatted Microsoft® Excel file. Also on the reporting side, the report listing has been enhanced to include previews of standard reports within Timeslips.

To further improve ease-of-use and customization, Timeslips 2006 introduces:

--  Interactive Reports:  Easily drill down to the source of reporting
    data.  With one click from within the report preview screen, users can
    quickly locate the related entry and streamline information reconciliation.
--  Smart Configure:  Infrequently used or unused features in Timeslips
    are automatically identified and presented to the user, providing details
    about how to use the feature. The user then has the option to switch the
    feature off, simplifying the product and making Timeslips more adaptable
    across diverse timekeepers.
--  Intuitive Report Design: Create custom reports and modify existing
    formats with one-click access from an on-screen report preview.  This
    flexible new design tool includes the ability to drag-and-drop items right
