Free Sage Intelligence Reporting 5-Part Video Series

Sage has launched the 2nd installment of their popular video series that teaches you how to build better reports and analyze data using Sage Intelligence Reporting.

It all started earlier this year with part 1 of the series entitled Starting Out with Sally. Sally is a fictitious business owner that leads you through practical ways to make sense of the numbers and improve your financial reporting skills with Sage Intelligence. Part 1 included 5 videos which have been archived and can be found here on YouTube.

This second installment, entitled Gearing Up with Sally, kicks things up a notch as Sally guides you through features of the Financial Report Designer that help you develop creative and insightful reports. The reporting techniques included in the second installment of the series include a focus on Pivot Tables, Pivot Charts, and Dashboards. Click below to sign up for the series.

Beware! Fraudulent Sage Software and Hardware Support Providers

In case you missed it, the message is worth repeating. Sage recently sent out communication warning customers about reports of companies contacting you claiming to represent Sage (but they don’t!).

These companies represent themselves as providing services to customers – typically software or hardware support – on behalf of Sage. They aggressively market “support or protection plans” once they make contact.

Sage is recommending that you DO NOT give out your Sage Account number without first verifying that you are indeed speaking with Sage directly.

Be sure to contact us if you have questions or doubt about any communication you receive from third parties.
