Sage TimeSheet 9.8 Further Expands and Simplifies Time Capture for Small and Mid-Sized Businesses and Organizations

ST. PETERSBURG, FL--(Marketwire - April 10, 2009) - Sage North America today announced enhancements to its premier timekeeping solution, Sage TimeSheet. Version 9.8 provides electronic time-keeping capabilities for users of Sage Abra HRMS, the company's award-winning human resource management system; adds integrated support for the SQL version of Sage Abra; and includes simplified time entry features for all Sage TimeSheet customers.

A versatile electronic time and expense capture system, Sage TimeSheet can feed directly into financial, project management, and payroll systems, including Sage Abra Payroll, the payroll module for Sage Abra HRMS. Additionally, Sage TimeSheet can provide project tracking capabilities for Sage MAS 90/200 ERP and Sage MAS 500 ERP users, or function as a stand-alone project time and expense tracking tool.

Sage Abra TimeSheet 9.8 is now available as an integrated option for Sage Abra SQL HRMS. It allows employees to enter time worked online, supervisors to approve time entries, and enables Abra Payroll administrators to more easily control the time approval process, to help ensure accurate and timely payment to all employees.

In addition, several new time entry features, such as the ability to add holiday hours or other common time to all employees at once, will benefit all Sage TimeSheet users.

"[Sage TimeSheet is] an ideal solution for a distributed workforce like ours," says Reed Sortor, systems accountant for San Francisco-based AKQA, a highly successful, global-reaching leader in digital marketing, and the creative team behind award-winning ideas and strategies used by some the world's most recognized brands, including VISA, Nike, Coca-Cola, and Xbox. "[Using Sage TimeSheet], employees can enter their time and project-related expenses from anywhere."

To ensure each employee has accounted for their weekly hours, AKQA has configured Sage TimeSheet to automatically generate an e-mail reminder to employees if they have not allocated their standard weekly number of hours.

"It's critical that we have complete and accurate time recording, yet it would be an impossible task to account for it all without Sage TimeSheet," adds Sortor.

Easy to install and administer, and flexible enough to accommodate highly complex business rules without customization, Sage TimeSheet integrates with project management, payroll, and billing systems. Compared to other project time-tracking software, Sage TimeSheet offers the most flexible configuration and customization capabilities to fit the unique requirements of most organizations, whether departmental or company-wide.

Availability

The Sage TimeSheet product line includes Sage Abra TimeSheet, Sage TimeSheet 100, Sage TimeSheet 500, Sage TimeSheet - Payroll Edition, Sage TimeSheet - MAS 90 Edition, and Sage TimeSheet - MAS 500 Edition.
