Sage Software Sponsors National Payroll Week 2007

Sage Software announced last week it is serving as a Platinum sponsor for the 12th annual celebration of National Payroll Week (NPW) 2007, a national campaign to help America’s workers understand more about their paychecks, the federal withholding system, and other payroll-driven benefits, to be held September 3-7. For nearly 20 years, Sage Software has been a leading provider of high-performance payroll solutions, from on-premises Sage Abra HRMS software to outsourced Sage Payroll Services, helping small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) comply with complex tax and compliance statutes and manage their businesses more efficiently and cost-effectively.

NPW celebrates the unique partnership among U.S. workers, their companies, the payroll professionals who pay them, and critical government programs, such as social security, Medicare, fair labor standards, and child support. Together, through payroll withholding, they contribute and collect nearly 71 percent of the U.S. Treasury’s annual revenue.

“Payroll solutions have always been core to our business,” said Sage Software President and CEO Ron Verni. “Today, more than 140,000 small and mid-sized companies use Sage payroll products and services to pay more than 5 million employees in the U.S.”

Sage Software offers comprehensive “best-of-breed” payroll solutions, including Abra Payroll software, part of the Sage Abra HRMS product line, Sage Payroll Services for outsourced payroll, and Sage Compliance Services for payroll tax filing and reporting. The company also offers integrated HR and payroll solutions for a variety of industries as part of the company’s accounting and ERP product lines, including Sage Accpac ERP, Sage MAS ERP, Sage MIP Fund Accounting, Peachtree by Sage, and Sage Timberline Office.

“We first implemented Abra Payroll in 1991, and the software continues to meet our needs today,” said Dawn Butcher, HR manager for Alliance, Neb.-based Western Cooperative Company (WESTCO), an agronomy and petroleum company employing 190 employees. “The product’s ease-of-use and Sage Software’s excellent customer support are two reasons we are still happy customers. One way Abra Payroll helps me on a daily basis: allowing me to quickly pull reports for unemployment, social services, and employee inquiries.”

Founded in 1996 by the American Payroll Association (APA), NPW coincides with Labor Day, and celebrates many things important to each U.S. worker, including the economic, cultural, and social achievements of workers, and the significance of “an honest day’s work for an honest day’s pay.”
