Inventory management enhancements and instant access to key data make it easier than ever to monitor profitability

Atlanta , GA (May 27, 2010) – Sage North America today announced the general availability of the Sage Peachtree 2011 industry-specific products, including Sage Peachtree Premium Accounting for Manufacturing and Sage Peachtree Premium Accounting for Distribution, following the company’s announcement last week of Sage Peachtree Quantum 2011 and the rest of the Sage Peachtree 2011 line.

Part of the Sage portfolio of manufacturing and distribution solutions, these products, designed for small manufacturers and wholesale distributors, go far beyond accounting, providing an array of business management tools offering instant access to key information that makes getting paid, reacting to issues and controlling profitability easier than ever.

Sage Peachtree has long been recognized as a leader in inventory management capabilities for small firms. With Sage Peachtree 2011, manufacturers and distributors can:

Improve decision making with the new Inventory and Services Management Center: A customized dashboard helps users process large quantities of information about a single inventory item or a service at a glance. It enables quick research, comparisons, and decision making, and helps small businesses easily see the impact of a service–usage, revenue, and more. The dashboard cuts time needed to track details on inventory for planning purchases, freeing that time for other activities.

View at-a-glance Assembly Management: Customizable by user, firms can easily select modules on the Inventory and Services Management Center for at-a-glance, detailed information about a specific assembly item. Owners and business managers can quickly see quantities on hand, component costs and backorders.

Instantly identify Job Status: Job status indicators provide visual red/yellow/green “stoplights” for easy identification of what’s on or off track, and are completely customizable to suit the needs of individual businesses. Small businesses can easily delete, rename, or change the color-coded stoplight button attached to each status, with virtually unlimited status types, for easy monitoring.

Sage Peachtree 2011 handily simplifies mundane tasks so that companies can get more work done faster, with less manpower, increasing efficiency with an easier installation process and a setup advisor that automatically displays related instructions, descriptions, and links for assistance. The guide can be turned on or off for each user.

Other new features, which vary across products, include the ability to process change orders and additional improvements to jobs management. For more information, please visit www.peachtree2011.com.

Manufacturers and distributors alike will benefit from capabilities available in Sage Peachtree for more profitable inventory management. Serialized inventory tracking, multiple costing methods, flexible bill of materials processing, kitting and assemblies, and the ability to sell in multi-quantity units are just a few of the advanced inventory functions included in these products for more effective, profitable inventory management.

Also new is Sage Peachtree Quantum 2011 offering exclusive new features supporting enhanced jobs management, including a new Jobs Navigation Center, Interactive Job Reporting, and a new Job and Project Management Center. Through the new Job and Project Management Center, manufacturers and distributors can proactively manage jobs with easy access to job information in one centralized place. A second tab in the Jobs Navigation Center provides a customizable dashboard view of information per job, per job/phase, or per job/phase/cost code.
