Austin , TX – Apr 01, 2010 – Sage North America today announced the expansion of its human resource (HR) management offerings for the nonprofit and government sector. Two new modules will provide fully integrated HR, employee self-service (ESS), payroll, and tax compliance capabilities to small and midsized nonprofits and government agencies who use the Sage MIP Fund Accounting nonprofit financial management software. For organizations requiring a more robust HR management system, Sage Abra HRMS will continue to meet those needs, as it has done for the past 25 years.
“With the economic events of the past year, and the recovery taking place now, nonprofits and government organizations, like their business counterparts, need more information than ever about their most critical asset: their employees,” said Johnny Laurent, vice president and general manager for Employer Solutions at Sage. “Our range of integrated HR technology options allow nonprofit and government organizations of any size to strategically leverage their human capital.”
The new Human Resource Management module for Sage MIP Fund Accounting is fully integrated to the software’s Payroll and GL (general ledger) modules, providing nonprofit customers with full data management, as well as quick and easy reporting and tracking. The new Employee Web Service (EWS) module for Sage MIP Fund Accounting provides employee self-service (ESS) functionality for nonprofits, and fully integrates with the software’s Human Resources Management and Payroll modules. Using the module, employees and managers can securely enter, update, and approve timesheets and other records online.
“By allowing us to maintain all HR, payroll, and accounting data in one place, the new Sage MIP Fund Accounting HR modules help us reduce redundant data entry and increase data accuracy,” said Tony Miller, CFO for the Oklahoma City-County Health Department in Oklahoma City, Okla., a Sage MIP Fund Accounting customer and early adopter for the new modules. “Having one integrated system for accounting, purchasing, and HR/payroll should result in substantial savings, including $15K in annual license and maintenance fees.”
The Human Resource Management and EWS modules for Sage MIP Fund Accounting are available now.
