ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - October 10, 2008) - Sage Software today announced that its Atlanta campus has been named one of the Atlanta metro area's top large employers in the Atlanta Business Chronicle's Seventh Annual Best Places to Work Awards.

More than 200 companies participated in this year's selection process, conducted by the Atlanta Business Chronicle, in partnership with Quantum Market Research Inc. Employees at nominated companies responded to an online survey that evaluated their workplaces, co-workers and managers.

The Chronicle selected 50 finalist companies based on the top scores in each of three categories: the top 10 large employers (with 501 or more employees in the metro area), the top 20 medium (those with 101 to 500 employees), and the top 20 in the small category (10 to 100 employees).

Sage Software was ranked at #6 in the large employer category, the first time the company's Atlanta campus has achieved this distinction. Sage's Atlanta operation employs approximately 650 individuals focused on the development, delivery and support of such well-known brands as Peachtree by Sage accounting software and Timeslips by Sage time and billing software, among others.
