Don't zig when you should zag
The path to success is rarely straight. Economies change; markets change; customers change; just when you think your business is revving up, you hit a fork in the road, a sharp turn, or maybe even a roadblock.Sage BusinessWorks provides critical insight into your key business metrics, so you can make intelligent, informed decisions at every twist and turn. Take a look at how our latest features and enhancements can help keep you on track, no matter what challenges you face.
Unlimited cash accounts
The previous nine-account limit is gone! As your business grows, so does the need for more cash accounts, especially if you own multiple locations, each with its own set of checking, savings, and money market accounts. Now you can easily accommodate an unlimited number of cash accounts and take advantage of the convenient bank reconciliation feature for all of them.
Improved cash account management
No need to set up and manage cash accounts in individual modules, now that we've consolidated that function in the Cash Management module. Define and maintain all your cash accounts in one central location. For example, if you have a cash account to post receivables, another to post vendor payments, and one more to issue payroll checks, you just need to access the Cash Management module for administration. And default cash accounts for each module display on a single screen!
Enhanced bank reconciliation
If you deal with hundreds of bank transactions every month, you'll especially appreciate the new ability to quickly reconcile cash accounts. Simply download the transaction status files from your bank and import them into Sage BusinessWorks. From the Bank Reconciliation screen, just a couple clicks will autocheck all the transactions that have cleared the bank—cutting the time and tedium associated with manual processing.
On-the-fly A/P invoices
You wanted this feature back, and we listened! Now you can once again add an A/P invoice on the fly (for your zero balance vendors) in Manual Invoice Selection. As you select AP invoices for payment and find an invoice that has not been entered for a vendor, you can create that AP invoice immediately in the new Manual Invoice Selection screen even if that vendor has a zero balance.
Masked credit card numbers
Streamline your invoice and payment process by adding masked credit card numbers to order, invoice, and credit memo forms. Now that those documents can reflect the credit card utilized in the transaction, they can become instant receipts!
Undo button confirmation
Avoid the frustration of losing hundreds of changes after entering a lengthy invoice/order/purchase order. If you hit the Undo button, you'll receive a confirmation message asking if you are sure. This simple feature can save untold hours of time reentering data if it's accidently undone.
Payroll report upgrade
Take advantage of updated technology in the new payroll reporting system to print reports in virtually every printing environment with drill-down and drill-to capabilities. You can also customize reports specifically to your needs with:
- Quick Reports—perfect if you want to simply add/subtract/move fields or change the filter or sort options.
- Comprehensive Reports—ideal if you are more comfortable in the report design arena and need to add/subtract/move fields, add calculations, add your own drill-down or drill-to fields, and more.
- SQL Report Programming—available to those who own the Custom Office module and are Microsoft SQL® programmers, this feature is accessible in the Comprehensive Reports option.
New payroll timecard tables
The TC1 and TC2 records are history! Create reports and queries with greater ease now that the payroll timecard tables have been reconfigured on a one-to-one basis so that each line on the timecard now has its own unique record.
Export unsaved reports
We've eliminated the two-step process of exporting reports. You can still save General Ledger reports, but it's no longer necessary before quickly exporting them to a Microsoft Word, Excel, or PDF format. Sage BusinessWorks 2013 creates a report in a temporary folder until you are ready to save the final copy.
More Excel export functionality
You don't need a pretty report. You want to dive into facts, figures, and data without fancy formatting and get to the bottom line faster. The improved export to Excel functionality helps you do just that—clearly see where your finances stand without any distractions.
Page scrolling in General Ledger reports
One click takes less than a second, but those seconds add up when you're constantly clicking! Not only can you now scroll through the pages of your General Ledger reports (minus the clicks), but you can also view and scroll through two pages side by side enabling you to see twice the information at a glance.
Post Only button for invoices
Do you import orders from a web store and are concerned about wasting paper? The Post Only button helps you go a little greener by allowing you to select multiple orders, convert to invoices, and post them without forcing you to print as well.
