Background and Analyst View

The Basic Software Group (a company from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada) launched Accpac in the late 1970s as an accounting package for small to medium businesses (SMBs). Accpac initially used the Control Program for Microcomputers (CPM) operating system, but was adapted for the MS-DOS and IBM operating systems in the 1980s, with the release of the Windows version in 1994 (now used by 275,000 people in 170 countries). Computer Associates acquired the Basic Software Group in 1985, and Accpac was sold to Sage in 2004, which rebranded the product to Sage ERP Accpac, and then to Sage 300 ERP in 2012. Sage also provides a Web-based version of the solution. Read more

Its core functionality can be extended through integration with either other Sage products or solutions provided by Sage partners. This is an important advantage for Sage 300 ERP, as customers with up to 250 users nowadays require both strong and flexible systems. Read more
