Increased Ease-of-Use, More Efficiency, and Greater Flexibility

Sage BusinessWorks 50 Accounting 2009 offers a number of new and improved features that help streamline accounting tasks, make the sales process easier, help companies save time and money during the check printing process, and make servicing and contacting customers even easier. Sage BusinessWorks 2009 includes:

Customer-specific pricing, which helps eliminate data-entry errors and allows businesses to improve their customer service. Sage BusinessWorks 2009 makes configuring customer-specific pricing easy, by allowing users to import customer part prices and providing tools to copy part prices to other customers.

Detailed open credits and deposit tracking, which allows users to easily reconcile open credit and deposit balances for customers. Sage BusinessWorks 2009 eliminates confusion by tracking each open credit and deposit as an individual transaction. Additionally, new detail reports help save time during the reconciliation process by displaying all new transactions that affect the open credit or deposit balance. These new, detailed reports also include drill-down capabilities, making researching details about transactions even easier, and helping to reconcile balances more quickly.

Unlimited line items on quotes, sales orders, and purchase orders, eliminating the need to create multiple transactions for a single order and saving data-entry and reconciliation time.

Increased sales accounts capacity in the Accounts Receivable and Order Entry modules, so users can enter up to 999 unique sales accounts on each transaction and better track sales.

Check printing efficiencies that help save time and money. Sage BusinessWorks 2009 can now print regular payroll checks on payroll check stock and Direct Deposit Pay Stubs on plain paper, saving valuable payroll check stock. Sage BusinessWorks 2009 also helps save time by allowing users to print a check register containing a company's entire payroll run in one procedure.

Enhanced data-exchange procedures that allow users to export data in a format that they need to easily share customer, vendor, part, and employee data with third-party applications.

Enhanced hyperlink capabilities that make it even easier to contact customers and vendors. These hyperlinks can be used to easily generate e-mail messages to customers and vendors from the most frequently used tasks.

o Enhanced Microsoft® Vista(TM) compatibility with Windows® Aero Glass support and an updated comprehensive HTML Help system.
