Sage Accpac made a major announcement this week at the Sage Insights 2009 conference: Sage Accpac ERP version 5.6 will include Accpac Intelligence, a powerful reporting tool that draws data directly from Accpac and provides management reports, dashboards, pivot tables, and charts through pre-formatted, automated Microsoft Excel report templates.
In addition to viewing a demonstration of this reporting tool, I had the opportunity to talk one-on-one with Stephen Coull, director of Alchemex, the South Africa-based software developer. This reporting tool has been used with Accpac in Europe and Africa for a number of years and already has more than 10,000 users worldwide.
Accpac Intelligence can report on Accpac, CRM, HRMS, FAS Fixed Assets, and third-party data. Although only templates for Accpac will be included in version 5.6, users (and/or INFOMAN) can create templates for other data sources as well.
Including Accpac Intelligence with Sage Accpac version 5.6 is another example of Sage working hard to increase the Total Value of Ownership (TVO) for Sage Accpac ERP accounting.
Staying current with Software Assurance ensures that your Accpac investment will provide dividends for years to come.
