    A new user interface gives one click access to any ledger. A second click then takes you to all the major features of the software. A clever configuration mechanism allows the user to hide any ledgers or features that they never use.
  • Automatic Backups
    You can now schedule Backups and Data Checks to run automatically at predefined times. What is really clever is that the Users don't even have to log out for the Backup to run.
  • Access your data from anywhere
    Optionally, you can now store your Sage data in the Cloud. This will allow access by Home Workers, Branch Offices and even your Accountant. Sage are also introducing some new Mobile applications that will use your cloud based data.

  • Option to hide inactive Customers, Suppliers and Products
    You can now mark Customer, Supplier or Product records as inactive. This will prevent them from being used in new postings whilst still being able to view historical information if required. You also have the option to show or hide inactive records in the Customer, Supplier and Product lists.
  • Options for selecting multiple records
    You now have the option to switch to the Windows method of selecting multiple records using the Shift and Ctrl keys when clicking records.
  • Shortcut Keys
    If you prefer to use the keyboard instead of the mouse there are new keyboard shortcuts that can be used. To see what they are just press the Alt key.
  • Simplified Access Rights
    A new Access Rights dialog makes it easier to set up access rights for your users.
