Irvine, Calif.—March 5, 2013—Sage North America updated its Sage 300 ERP 2012 model with new features and functionality to help businesses be smarter and more efficient. Currently available for those businesses running Sage 300 ERP 2012, the Sage 300 ERP Payroll module now has over 20 new enhancements that simplify payroll processing and improve payroll reporting and compliance.
“Integrated payroll processing is an important component of Sage 300 ERP. With the new cloud connected services, businesses can further reduce their cost of managing payroll by allowing employees to view pay history online,” said Erik Kaas, Vice President of Product Management, Sage 300 ERP. “And with Sage eFiling, companies not only save time and money filing W-2s and 1099s, they can also go green by eliminating the need to print and mail forms.”
Companies that use Sage 300 ERP Payroll for in-house processing can now provide their employees with access to Sage Source. The easy-to-use, personalized connected service publishes information to the cloud, enabling employees to sign in, view and print their payroll history. The enhanced Payroll module also includes Sage Federal and State eFiling and Reporting, a connected service that provides free, up-to-date and automatically populated forms that can be printed and mailed or used to e-file for a very low fee.
