ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - October 6, 2009) - In the wake of the recent devastating floods around Atlanta, Sage announced that it is offering free copies of Peachtree Accounting to help small businesses impacted by the flooding to get back on their feet.

Additionally, Sage employees will be volunteering in the community, assisting small businesses with their cleanup and rebuilding efforts.

"We want to get the word out around the Atlanta metro area: we're here to help small businesses if they need it: by assisting with their cleanup and rebuilding efforts, by giving them Peachtree Accounting to help get their business back on track as soon as possible, or both," said Connie Certusi, SVP and general manager, small business accounting solutions, Sage. "Our Peachtree business was born here and grew up around Atlanta, and we're happy to give our neighbors a hand."

For any small business that was already using Peachtree, Sage will replace it with the corresponding 2010 version. For any small business that wasn't using Peachtree to manage their accounting, Sage will provide a not for resale copy of the multi-user version of Peachtree by Sage 2010 Complete Accounting free of charge, to assist them in rebuilding their business.

Peachtree offers small businesses the ability to invoice customers, track payments, create reports, and manage inventory. It also provides real-time alerts on a variety of key financial indicators; module-level password security; an internal accounting review; and 100 MB of Peachtree Online Backup powered by Iron Mountain, which is particularly helpful when small businesses are hit by unforeseen disasters such as the recent floods around Atlanta.

How To Get Help:

Small businesses impacted by flooding and interested in either replacing an existing Peachtree product or in getting a free copy of Peachtree Complete Accounting to set up their accounting can visit between now and October 30th. Any small businesses in need of volunteer assistance for their cleanup or rebuilding efforts, please call 770-724-4000.
