A New Name & Expanded Offerings
Meet the Sage Software Accountants Network. You may recognize it as the Best Software Accountants Network or BSAN. Like BSAN the Accountants Network offers resources helping small- and mid-sized accounting practices grow. The Accountants Network, however, offers expanded libraries and two additional Value Partners.
“Sage Software is squarely focused on providing the accountant community with the best tools possible to manage their own firms and serve their clients,” Ed Cheeseman, vice president, Sage Software Accountants Network said in the press release announcing the new name. “Sage Software has nurtured strong ties with accountants for nearly 30 years; we understand the needs of this community, and we value the opportunity to support AICPA Tech 2005 for our accountant partners.”
Accountants have access to Sage Software related libraries through the Accountants Network. The Libraries include accounting and business management software, support services, and automatic upgrades/updates (including tax table when applicable). Two new libraries, ACCPAC and Timberline, are also available through Accountants Network.
This month First Research and iLumene ™ join the Accountants Network as Value Partners. Accountants can access to Industry Profiles, Call Prep Sheets and Email Alerts through First Research a provider of business intelligence tools. Ilumene, a private company financial monitoring and benchmarking network, offers private company trending, monitoring and benchmarking services.

Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
