Present a Professional Image

Providing excellent customer service and building relationships extends beyond face-to-face interaction with your customers and vendors. Because printed correspondence is also a reflection of your company, make sure that your accounting software lets you produce custom, professional-looking correspondence. Create professional correspondence using:

  • Customizable forms including invoices, purchase orders, statements, labels, and more.
  • Word mail-merge letters with built-in Microsoft Office integration.

Multiple Ways to View Your Data

Accounting software is only useful if you can get to your data. Sage DacEasy understands this-that’s why DacEasy has a number of ways for you to view your data.

Instant Reports allow you to view key reports quickly with a single mouse click. While fast access is great, the real power is the ability to click an area on the report to drill down to more detail. For example, if a customer inquires about an account, you can view the Accounts Receivable Aging and then drill down on a past-due invoice to view the invoice detail.

  • Create presentation-quality reports, selecting the fonts, color, paper size, orientation, and more. If the standard reports don’t meet your needs, you can create custom financials with the Financial Reporter and custom listings (up to 96 fields from multiple files) with DacAccess.
  • Easily e-mail reports or forms to Customers, Vendors, Partners, Salespersons, and more from within the Sage DacEasy print engine. You can also save time by sending batch e-mails if required.
  • Microsoft Office Integration allows you to publish your data to Word, Excel®, or PDF easily.
  • Publish data to HTML and then update your Web page or company intranet.
  • Export your data to a text or ASCII format.
  • LookUps allow quick access to existing records. You can sort on any column in a LookUp, include a secondary sort, sort ascending or descending and search for a record. You can customize the columns in each lookup in Sage DacEasy. With this new powerful feature you can create custom lookups that present the information most relevant to the task you are doing or to the transaction you are entering. In addition, you may export the information in any of the lookups to an ASCII file.
  • View multiple windows at the same time (even from different modules or companies).

Speed and Security

Sage DacEasy utilizes the Pervasive.SQL database engine. This translates into fast and safe access to your data. Combine this with DacEasy’s advanced security feature, which allows you to control the areas each user can access, and you will feel confident in the integrity of your data.

Extensive Functionality

In addition to the typical features found in most small business accounting software, Sage DacEasy includes a number of features usually only found in much more expensive software. For example, DacEasy has extensive inventory-related features such as multiwarehousing, multilevel price breaks and price assignment (various criteria), serial number tracking, reorder tracking, multiple costing methods (average, standard, and last purchase price), assembly on the fly, backorder tracking, and much more!

It was too cumbersome. We could not have more than 1 session going at a time. It became time consuming to have to exit out all the time.

It’s not my favorite program but it gets the job done. I’ve used sophisticated systems like SAP which I feel spoiled to use when compared to DacEasy. But the program is simple and good for small organizations like ours.

It doesn’t give us enough information. It is working fine and doing what we expect it to do, but it does not give us enough flexibility for reporting and bringing information together to prepare the financial statements. I cannot seem to get rid of accounts with a 0 opening balance and zero activity.
