Shari Willman, SageSage 50, the former Peachtree, is getting more updates as the company breaks with its past once-a year release. The roll out of the new product, technically Sage 50 Accounting 2014-U.S., was in April as opposed to the usual May and also seems to show the commitment of software manufacturers to names that won’t fit in headlines. Sage is moving toward quarterly updates. The company also renamed its business intelligence offering as Sage Business Reporting, which is an Excel-based.

Overall, the new version is designed to help users "get through most common A/R [accounts receivable] tasks in less time," says Shari Willman, principal product marketing manager. The company updated its enter Sage 50 line, including the Complete, Premium and Quantum versions but dropped First Accounting. First did not include payroll and most new businesses, even if they don't need payroll at first, operate under the assumption that they will grow, Willman said. The new Quantum was described as offering job and workflow management, customizable reporting, and user- and role-based security features and supporting from five to 40 named users. With Sage going to the cloud with Sage One on the low end, it’s going to be interesting to see where Sage addresses the cloud in the old Peachtree realm. Pricing for Quantum remains at $3,000 for a five-user license.
