Sage has launched the latest versions of the following products - part of

Key to these latest releases is their integration between each other, other products within the Sage Accountants Suite and Sage's core accounting software, Sage Line 50. The latest versions also offer a host of new features and improvements.

Sage Accounts Production (SAP)
Highly versatile and easy to use, SAP has also undergone a programme of continuous development and now offers a host of new features. Accounts preparation and production is now easier than ever. For example, the introduction of 'temporary' journals gives users the option of creating 'what if' scenarios, making it easier to prepare accurate reports. Overtype identifiers, combined transaction reporting and lodgement postings also give accountants better control. SAP now has improved search facilities, client code changes, partnership reserve accounting and additional reporting options, all making the accounts production process more efficient.

Sage Time and Fees
Sage Time and Fees now offers a network option that gives full, concurrent, multi-access considerably improving operational efficiency. Posted time can now be held in abeyance for supervisory review enabling time to be monitored and approved before updating work-in-progress. Other new features include:
* Allocation of lead members of staff
* Automatic generation of recurring jobs
* Enhanced search facilities
* Generation of multiple invoice number sequences
* Ability to report on staff budgets and variances.

Jerry Luckett, general manager for Sage's accountants division says, "We have listened closely to accountants when further developing the Accountants Suite of products. Integration between products and their links to Sage Line 50 will help accountants communicate with their clients and run their practices more efficiently and effectively."
