ST. PETERSBURG, FL — 01/30/2006 — Sage Software announced today that Sage Abra HRMS, its award-winning, fully-integrated HR, payroll, compliance, employee self-service (ESS), and online benefits enrollment solution, has been positioned in the Leaders quadrant in Gartner, Inc.’s 2006 Magic Quadrant for U.S. Midmarket Human Resource Management Systems (HRMS).
“We believe being named to Gartner’s Leaders HRMS quadrant for 2006 confirms what our customers already know,” said Ray Jimison, senior vice president and general manager for Specialized Business Solutions at Sage Software. “Sage Abra is valued for its large mid-market HRMS installed base and strong functionality at reasonable price points, which maximize return on investment and minimize total cost of ownership. In addition, Sage Software has diverse product and service offerings outside of HRMS, such as Sage Payroll Services, and a financially strong parent company.”
Sage Abra is Sage Software’s flagship HR/payroll offering from its portfolio of complementary front- and back-office solutions, including accounting, fixed asset management, and customer relationship management (CRM) solutions, among others, as well as solutions especially for specific vertical industries, such as manufacturing, distribution, nonprofit, accountants, construction, and real estate. In addition to its best-of-breed status, Sage Abra integrates with the company’s Sage MAS 90 ERP, Sage MAS 200 ERP, Sage MAS 500 ERP, and Sage MIP Fund Accounting products, among other solutions for the mid-market.
