2012 New Features

   

Copy Transactions

Lets you quickly and easily create a new transaction by copying an existing one.  After copying, you can make whatever adjustments you need to the new transaction.  Transactions that can be copied are Quotes, Sales Orders, Proposals, Sales Invoicing, Purchase Orders, Purchase Invoices, and General Journal Entries.  You'll find a copy button in the transaction entry screens and the list screens.


Sage Advisor

Has been improved.  In addition to popping up relevant tips, it now can link you to more detailed help or videos. And you can adjust the frequency of tips to match your level of experience with Peachtree.


Sage Peachtree System Check

Monitors for sufficient free hard drive space and memory, and shows a warning when you have not backed up. Also gives convenient access to backup and restore, archiving, year end wizard, Peachtree updates, and other system related tasks.  It also includes a new utility that lets you select customers by last activity date, and them mark them inactive.


Additional Payroll Fields

You can now have up to 40 employee fields and 40 employer/company fields.  Versions 2011 and older are limited to 30 employee fields and 10 employer fields.  In addition to allowing more deductions, this will help comply with new reporting requirements including the Health Care Act of 2010.


Easier Network Installation

Network installation has been streamlined and you can now install on multiple workstations simultaneously to reduce the overall time required to upgrade.  When you install on the server, installation files will be copied  to a folder that is automatically shared.  You can then run the workstation install from those files so you don't have to take the disc to each PC.  The install program can even map the network drive for you if you have already.


Sage Peachtree Business Intelligence

This powerful tool lets you enlist Excel to be your custom report writer.  The basic idea behind it is that you create report templates in Excel and use PBI to push Peachtree data to a designated area in the workbook to serve as your report's data source.  The use of Excel should make it much easier to learn than other report writers.  An optional Connector modules allows you to pull data from more than one database in the same report.


Peachtree Business Intelligence can be used with Peachtree Complete, Premium, or Quantum.  A free 60 day trial with several pre-built reports is included with Peachtree 2012.  Pre-built reports include a sales analysis, purchase analysis, balance sheet, and income statement.  Peachtree Business Care subscribers and Quantum users will receive Sage Peachtree BI with their subscription.
