BEAVERTON, OR--(Marketwire - Jan 25, 2012) - Sage North America today announced the release of Sage Timberline Office MyAssistant, a unique personal assistant tool that monitors critical project and property information and delivers automatic alerts about profit, compliance, and a broad range of key activities, enabling construction and real estate professionals to focus on the strategic actions required to grow and manage their businesses.

"Today's construction and real estate professionals have limited time, staff and resources. Sage Timberline Office MyAssistant creates efficiencies that keep everyone on top of the business and able to focus their energies on delivering more successful projects and performance," said Jon Witty, Sage Vice President and General Manager of Construction and Real Estate Solutions.

More than just a dashboard, Sage Timberline Office MyAssistant enables users to limit exposure on important issues by proactively monitoring key performance indicators, alerting them to issues needing attention, and providing the rich information needed to take action. MyAssistant automatically generates and places reports, spreadsheets, documents and email alerts into the hands of those who need it, saving hours of productivity every day.

MyAssistant is able to monitor and deliver nearly 350 standard alerts and automated tasks, and can be tailored with custom rules for individual business needs. It can be configured to automatically identify and notify vendors whose insurance policies are expiring in 30 days; send project managers a list of overdue RFIs, submittals, and change requests with detailed logs attached; send tenants their statements; or recognize jobs falling below a profit threshold.

"Construction and real estate firms manage a myriad of necessary but time-consuming details and tasks every day," said Jon Witty, Vice President and General Manager of Sage Construction and Real Estate. "Sage Timberline Office MyAssistant will save them time by quickly identifying what needs action, who needs to take that action, and then helping ensure the action is completed and critical issues are resolved."
