What’s new in Abra 7.6 and 8.3?

Sage Software has unveiled its latest versions (7.6 and 8.3) of Sage Abra HRMS, the company’s human resource management system for small and mid-sized businesses and organizations in North America. The upgrade features Employer Information Report EEO-1 and compatibility with the Microsoft Windows Vista operating system.

Sage Abra has been updated in an effort to make it easy for customers to collect and report on necessary job categories and employee ethnicity to comply with the 2007 Equal Employment Opportunity Commission category changes, effective Sept. 30, 2007.

“One major reason companies implement an HR management system is to help them accurately manage requirements for government compliance,” said Jessica Simmons, V.P. and general manager for Sage Abra HRMS at Sage Software.

“With these latest versions, Sage Abra HRMS includes the code table and report changes necessary to comply with the new EEO-1 requirements which employers must begin reporting Sept. 30.”

Sage Abra is Sage Software’s flagship HR/payroll offering from its portfolio of complementary front and back-office systems, including accounting, fixed asset management, customer relationship management and software for specific vertical industries.

In addition, Sage Abra integrates with Sage Software’s Sage MAS 90 ERP, Sage MAS 200 ERP, Sage MAS 500 ERP, Sage MIP Fund Accounting, Sage Accpac ERP, and Sage Timberline Office, plus its Sage Payroll Services and Sage Compliance Services offerings, as well as third-party solutions for mid-sized businesses.
