Tercera Construction Keeps It in the Sage Family and Deploys Sage Timberline Office as Company Expands in Canadian Market

Start-Up General Contracting Firm Turns to Sage Construction and Real Estate to Meet Growth Demands

RICHMOND, BC and BEAVERTON, OR--(Marketwire - May 3, 2011) - Sage North America, a provider of business management software and services to more than three million small and midsized businesses in Canada and the United States, today announced that Tercera Construction, based in Vancouver British Columbia, has selected Sage Timberline Office as its construction software solution. Shortly after opening its doors, Tercera Construction used Sage Simply Accounting and then transitioned to a web-based construction application before coming back to the Sage product line and choosing Sage Timberline Offices as the company's solution.

Sage Timberline Office is a powerful financial and operations software for construction and real estate management industries -- software designed to control costs and maximize revenues. With its integrated and scalable approach, Sage Timberline Office continues to be the market leader by providing a modular and flexible solution with a robust feature set that can add greater depth and breadth when required.

"After conducting some research, one name kept coming up: Sage Timberline Office. So we attended an information session with Sage Construction and Real Estate and were impressed that the tools were designed specifically for contractors," said Dennis Donovan, president of Tercera Construction. "The added benefit was having the aid of a local business partner that assisted us with the setup and configuration of the software as well as helped us avoid some missteps that would have cost us in the long run. We knew then that the investment would pay off for our employees, partners and clients."

Once Tercera had the software in place, Donovan immediately recognized the competitive advantage Sage Timberline Office brought to the team. The company's software is hosted by a third-party hosting service making data easily accessible to employees from the field. Integration with industry-standard tools captured building information for estimates which proved to be more accurate and cost-effective by saving time.

"At Sage, we're committed to delivering beyond our customers' expectations to help them meet their needs and maximize their productivity," said Jon Witty, vice president and general manager of Sage Construction and Real Estate. "In Tercera's case, its services needed to be hosted by a third-party. Patrick Baker, one of our local business partners, helped to bring Tercera's goals to fruition while making the transition as seamless as possible."
