Sage Software, a division of the Sage Group, has released the latest version of its business management solution for small and midsize companies. MAS 500 ERP 7.2 leverages Microsoft SQL Server and Visual Studio technology, includes support for Microsoft Vista UAC, and features new Business Insights Dashboard and Data Import Manager modules.

The new solution is a highly scalable enterprise resource planning (ERP) application that automates and streamlines business management processes. Ideal for manufacturing, distribution and other companies with complex accounting needs, it provides customized solutions for vertical industries. The new Business Insights Dashboard offers single-click access to analytical and collaborative tools. The Data Import Manager uses a mapping wizard to preserve data integrity while facilitating the import of data into Sage MAS 500.

"The Business Insights Dashboard is a critical tool for CFOs and business managers who appreciate instant access to the key company information they find most useful," Dan Isaacson, technician at Bennett/Porter & Associates, a Sage MAS 500 authorized business partner, said in a statement.
