Simply Accounting For Office Arrives

Sage Software announced, on Monday, that Simply Accounting by Sage Basic – for Microsoft Officer Users is now available in the U.S.. Simply Accounting, annually the number one selling accounting package for small businesses in Canada, has been available in the U.S. and Canada for 20 years. The latest addition to the family includes in-depth Microsoft Office integration.

“For entry level businesses that want to migrate from a personal finance product or a spreadsheet, Simply Accounting Basic is the ideal accounting package,” Laurie Schultz, general manager, Simply Accounting, Sage Software, said in the announcement for the new release. “With over two-thirds of all accounting Software being purchased at the entry level, Sage Software is committed to serving this part of the market with Simply Accounting Basic.”

Simply Accounting Basic is built on a Microsoft Access Database, enabling tight integration with Access and other Microsoft Office applications. This means that small business owners can easily view reports created in Simply Accounting Basic in Microsoft Excel with established formulas intact; use Microsoft Word to compose and send customer letters without leaving Simply Accounting Basic; and synchronize customers and vendors from within Simply Accounting Basic with Microsoft Outlook.

The latest version also contains update usability features such as an improved user interface and additional wizards for managing common tasks. Enhancements to the payroll functionality will enable small business owners to improve workflow, too.

Simply Accounting Basic – for Microsoft Office Users is currently shipping and should arrive in office supply retail outlets soon. It can also be ordered directly from Sage online or by calling 888-261-9610. The $49.99 price included 30 days of free customer support.
