Support for Terminal Services – Allows Sage 50 to run on a Windows Terminal Server so that remote users can connect to your Sage 50 database.

Pricing Formulas – Formulas can be set up by price level for inventory items to streamline the process of recalculating prices. This allows you to recalculate prices for all or part of your inventory with just a few clicks; it does not mean that prices will automatically adjust any time your cost changes.
Master and Sub-stock Items – Automates the process of creating related inventory items, such as a shirt that comes in small, medium or large and red or white.
Outlook Sync – Customer, Vendor, and Employee information in Sage 50 Complete can be synchronized with your Outlook contacts so that you only have to enter information once to keep both up to date.
Time Card Entry for Payroll – In Sage 50 Complete, you can enter time card information which will flow in to payroll. That way you don’t have to manually add up time cards so that you can put the total in Payroll Entry.
Time and Expense Tickets – In addition to feeding payroll, time tickets can also be used to bill clients for time. Expense tickets make it easy to bill for miscellaneous items such as photocopies that might otherwise be forgotten.
Fixed Asset Tracking –Complete comes bundled with FAS for Sage 50. It can calculate depreciation for up to 200 assets and post the depreciation entry directly to Peachtree’s general ledger. FAS can be upgraded if you need more than 200 assets.
Better Job Costing – Jobs can be divided in to phases and phases can be broken down in to cost codes for more detailed job reporting.
