I am finally back into my humble office after attending the Sage Software Summit 2011 with an immediate trip to some customers out in Boston and Maine, now playing a serious game of catch up. Ugg, one thing is for sure, when you leave, nothing just stops and goes away.
What I wanted to bring to everyone’s attention is the new version of Sage FAS (v2012) that will soon be released – starting in mid-September. Sage FAS division had a handful of breakout sessions @Sage_Summit letting both Business Partners and Customers play around with the latest version – one even showcased the ease-of-use on customizing the new interface and layout. Feedback was a-m-a-z-i-n-g! I myself am extremely excited to start implementing it world-wide.
Some of the changes to the Sage FAS Asset Accounting software that I (and my customers) are excited about are:
- The capability to perform Task Based functionality (like you do in Outlook).
- Ability to drag and drop columns in the Group View – now appropriately named: Asset List.
- A user can now drag the general field section (in Asset View/Detailed View) down to view all the fields as needed – seriously, this is a HUGE one for every user.
- Capability to UPDATE asset information through the custom import wizard – this is the big dog!
- Much, much, much more…
I don’t have all day to type out this blog entry so I am trying my best to keep it short and sweet and highlighting only a handful of things I and you will love about the upcoming release of Sage FAS Asset Accounting v2012. It may seem a bit young for a facelift… but 14 [personal] years in the business — well, in software years, that facelift is long over due. To Sage FAS division I say – GOOD JOB and way to be the best plastic surgeon in the U.S.!
