Sage Software Launches Online Sage Payroll Services for Sage Accpac ERP

IRVINE, Calif. - April 3, 2006 - Sage Software announced today the availability of Sage Payroll Services for its award-winning Sage Accpac ERP business management system. Sage Payroll Services provides outsourced, online U.S. payroll for small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs). The service works with any accounting system, and offers the added advantage of instant integration with Sage Abra HRMS, Peachtree by Sage, Sage MAS 90 ERP and MAS 200 ERP, and now Sage Accpac ERP versions 5.3 and 5.4, enabling SMBs to save time and reduce potential errors by using a flexible and affordable Sage Software outsourced payroll solution.

The new integration with Sage Accpac ERP extends the Sage Software promise of providing SMBs with a choice in business management applications, making outsourced payroll for Sage Accpac available via Sage Payroll Services, in addition to the existing on-premises payroll module for Sage Accpac ERP.

"Sage Payroll Services is a great option for Sage Accpac ERP clients who prefer a turnkey payroll service while still having the freedom to choose an on-premises payroll system," said John Foster, president of Xenex Seattle Inc., a Sage Accpac ERP business partner. "Using Sage Payroll Services along with Sage Accpac ERP, mid-sized businesses can manage all aspects of their payroll processing with the company they already entrust with the rest of their financial management."

Sage Accpac ERP is an award-winning business management system that integrates with a host of other end-to-end business management solutions, including customer relationship management (CRM), human resources (HR), and warehouse management.

Built on a true Web-native architecture and offered within the framework of Sage Online Services, Sage Payroll Services handles even complex payroll and tax compliance needs with 24/7 access and real-time reporting on demand, while:
o costing approximately 20 percent less than similar outsourced payroll service offerings from many other vendors, such as ADP and Paychex;
o requiring only an Internet connection to access;
o offering direct deposit for multiple employee accounts; and
o providing outsourced or on-demand check printing from the desktop.

"Sage Accpac ERP clients now have another key business management tool at their disposal," said Craig Downing, Sage Software vice president and general manager for Sage Accpac. "Sage Payroll Services further extends the end-to-end functionality of Sage Accpac ERP, providing our clients with greater choice through an additional payroll option that will reduce administrative downtime and help increase their productivity, while also giving them peace of mind knowing their payroll is being maintained accurately and efficiently."
