What's new in the 2011 release....
Sage Pay 'pay now' option.
To help you get payments quicker, there’s a new "pay now" button that you can add to PDF documents if you are a Sage Pay user. For example, if you send invoices by email you can now embed a "pay now" button in your invoice. This lets your customers make immediate card payments online via the Sage Pay website - which provides more flexibility of payment as well as the benefit of you improving your cash flow.
Sage 50 Accounts 2011 has been developed based on feedback from our customers to continue to develop the little things that make a big difference. So you'll find a wide range of changes to processes that improve efficiency and give more flexibility. For example, you can now: raise a credit note directly from an invoice, save user preference settings to remain next time you log in; sort and filter customer and supplier information to find things quicker; edit recurring entry dates without creating a new entry.
