HERNDON, VA--(Marketwire - Oct 9, 2012) - Sage North America today announced the availability of Sage Fixed Assets 2013 (formerly Sage FAS Fixed Assets), bringing improved usability in a completely integrated solution -- starting with its new name -- Sage Fixed Assets -- to encompass its family of solutions. Available now, many of its new features, including a simplified framework, expanded attachment options, and the ability to check for release updates, improve the customer experience to streamline business processes.

"Our goal is to help businesses realize their ambitions, and a positive customer experience goes a long way to achieve this. To that end, we started by simplifying our product lines so the product names as well as the buying process are easier to understand," explained Joe Langner, executive vice president, Sage midmarket solutions. "We then conducted extensive usability testing with Sage Fixed Assets customers to ensure the look and feel of Sage Fixed Assets 2013 isn't just pretty, but also highly functional and intuitive."

In addition to the single framework, commercial, nonprofit, and government users will also be able to take advantage of Sage Advisor technology -- a system that automatically checks for software updates to help keep current Sage Business Care plan customers in compliance with the latest regulations.

Government and nonprofit customers will now also benefit from features previously only available to commercial customers, including:

  • Easy access to the Assistance Center where users can quickly access advice on industry terminology, best practices and reasons to choose one option over another
  • Updated look and feel, including an intuitive navigation pane
  • Better find and replace functionality with wildcard searches
  • Customizable asset list view with drag and drop column organization
  • Quick and easy export of the asset list view directly in to Microsoft® Excel®
  • Central location for reports, convenient batch reporting and easy access to favorite reports
  • Step-by-step guidance for performing physical inventories
  • Ability to attach PDFs to assets

Sage Fixed Assets solutions help eliminate redundant data entry, increase accuracy, and reduce costs while guarding against regulatory noncompliance. By combining over 300,000 IRS tax and GAAP rules as well as more than 50 depreciation methods and an intuitive interface, Sage Fixed Assets delivers the most complete fixed asset management solution available, with comprehensive depreciation calculations for financial and tax reporting, asset inventory tracking and reconciliation, construction-in-progress management, and customized reporting, so companies can effectively manage every step of the fixed asset lifecycle -- from acquisition to disposal.

The tracking, depreciation, planning and reporting applications of Sage Fixed Assets solutions not only integrate with one another, but with many other systems as well, (for example, ERP and general ledger systems), allowing data to flow seamlessly between departments. This lets everyone -- including accounting and IT -- work with the same information for more effective reconciliation and management.
