Sage Software Customer Support for Sage Timberline Office Achieves Fifth Consecutive Support Center Practices (SCP) Certification

BEAVERTON, OR -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Dec 01, 2005 -- Sage Software announced today that its Sage Timberline Office Customer Support department has earned its fifth consecutive Support Center Practices (SCP) Certification. SCP Certification ensures that customers receive technical support that is rated among the best in the industry as measured by industry standard benchmarks. The Sage Timberline Office product suite provides integrated financial and operations software for professionals in construction and real estate.

The internationally recognized SCP standard was created by a consortium of leading technology companies with Service Strategies Corp. and defines best practices for delivering world-class technology support. The program quantifies the effectiveness of customer support, establishes a foundation to build on existing quality processes, and provides a clear focus on measurable results.

"The Sage Timberline Office team again demonstrated their commitment to delivering quality technical support," said SCP auditor Ben Stephens, who completed the Sage Timberline Office on-site review. "The management team continues to find creative new methods to improve service levels and drive customer satisfaction."

SCP Certification requires comprehensive on-site audits to confirm that companies meet the requirements of more than 100 business elements defined in the SCP program. SCP Certification measures factors such as corporate commitment and strategic direction, customer satisfaction, performance metrics, research and development interface, and other strategic areas of the support operation. Certified companies must continue to demonstrate their commitment to excellence and high performance standards through annual re-certification audits.

"We are very proud in being recognized for our continuous improvements in customer support," said Curtis Peltz, Sage Software senior vice president and general manager, Construction and Real Estate Solutions. "SCP Certification re-affirms our ongoing commitment to our customers to provide a level of support that is among the best in the business."

The current SCP Certification is the latest in a string of achievements by the Sage Timberline Office support team. In 2001, Sage Timberline Office Customer Support was the first in the construction and real estate software industry to achieve SCP Certification. Recently, the support center won the 2005 STAR Award (Software Technical Assistance Recognition) for Service Excellence in the category of High Call Volume and was also honored as a Finalist in the category of Sustained Performance, by the Service & Support Professionals Association (SSPA).

Companywide, Sage Software's Irvine, Calif. (Sage MAS 90/200, Sage MAS 500 and Sage PFW ERP) and Atlanta (Peachtree by Sage) support centers have held SCP Certifications since 1998 and 2001, respectively. The company's Rocklin, Calif. support center (Sage BusinessWorks Accounting) has held SCP Certification since 1999. In addition, the St. Petersburg, Fla., Herndon, Va. and Atlanta support centers (Sage Abra HRMS, Sage Carpe Diem, Sage FAS Fixed Assets, Sage TimeSheet and Timeslips by Sage) all first received SCP Certification in 2004.
