Sage Continues Delivering Superior TCO to SMBs With Turnkey, Low-Cost Business Applications on Applianz Technology

Sage MAS 90 and 200 Extended Enterprise Suite Now Available on the Applianz System With Release of Version 1.3

IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 08/25/09 -- Sage North America, serving 2.9 million SMB customers throughout North America, announced today general availability of Sage MAS 90 and 200 Extended Enterprise Suite v1.3, the latest Sage business application available on Applianz technology. Small and Medium-sized Business (SMB) owners continue looking for ways to reduce costs and minimize IT resources while maximizing productivity with business software. Sage MAS Extended Enterprise Suite on the Applianz system addresses all these needs and more, offering SMBs low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) through patented virtualization technology and the best features of both of on-premise and hosted solutions.

"Sage has been recognized by industry analyst firms like IDC* and Gartner** as a global leader in delivering business management applications for small and mid-sized businesses. We've built that success by giving customers high quality products that meet a wide range of needs and are both cost effective and easy to use," said Laurie Schultz, senior vice president and GM Sage Mid-Market ERP Solutions. "Sage MAS 90 and 200 Extended Enterprise Suite v1.3 combines the best of Sage ERP, CRM, fixed assets and business intelligence applications with delivery on Applianz technology. The result is ideal for businesses that want low cost and the 'all-in' management convenience promised by hosted applications, but are still uncomfortable with putting their data in the cloud."

The Case for Low TCO

The Applianz system is configured to reduce or eliminate the need for ongoing IT support, reducing overall TCO. Systems include Sage MAS Extended Enterprise Suite, all required Windows licenses, an integrated firewall to ensure security, plus one full year of Applianz's CompleteAssurance(TM) services. CompleteAssurance provides 24/7 remote monitoring, fully automatic daily back-up, free system replacement in case of equipment failure and a one-day disaster recovery policy. Users can choose on-premise or hosted deployment of the Applianz system, which also can host other business applications. And because Sage MAS Extended Enterprise Suite is pre-configured, installation can be completed in a matter of hours; delivering the best of on-premise and hosted solutions in one.

Using patented virtualization technology and advanced system design, the Applianz system reduces or eliminates hardware upgrade costs. Sage MAS Extended Enterprise Suite on the Applianz system can be deployed on existing workstation hardware, PCs, Linux terminals, and even Macintosh computers. The Applianz system includes built-in remote access connectivity, eliminating the cost of terminal services, VPN software (Virtual Private Network) or other costly client licenses.

In addition to delivery options on the Applianz system, Sage MAS Extended Enterprise Suite v1.3 provides improved sales order workflow, usability enhancements and new fixed asset functionality. The Suite gives employees a 360-degree view of their business operations across their entire organization by dynamically linking processes, information, workflows, and communication channels from customer-facing activities through finance, production and inventory systems.

Sage MAS 90 and 200 Extended Enterprise Suite is available as a traditional on-premise solution, as an on-premise solution on the Applianz system, or as a hosted solution on the Applianz system.
