This issue’s feature article, What is ERP?

Another acronym your may be hearing more and more is ERP. It stands for Enterprise Resource Planning. These days software solutions integrate accounting with customer relationship management, manufacturing and other business processes that used to stand alone. Software companies are looking to provide their customers with whole solutions that integrate together, rather than individual pieces that do not share data. Think you’re missing something in your software solution? Please ask us for help.

V2012 was released last year.  If you have not downloaded this latest version, as well as recent updates, do so soon to take advantage of many new features.   V2013 is scheduled to be released the summer of 2013.  For more information on V2012, also V2010 and 2011, view a webcast at While you’re there consider the other free web events for your increased knowledge.

Sage currently supports BusinessWorks V2011 and V2012.  The latest update for V2012 is SP 7, and for V2011, SP16.  As always, there are release notes and instructions at your fingertips.  A Sage BusinessCare plan is required for access to software upgrades.
