Austin, Texas – APA’s 26th Annual Congress – Sage Software today announced it is once again serving as a Platinum sponsor for National Payroll Week® (NPW) 2008, a national campaign to help America’s workers understand more about their paychecks, the federal withholding system, and other payroll-driven benefits, to be held September 1-5, 2008. For more than 20 years, Sage Software has been a leading provider of high-performance payroll solutions, from on-premises software, like Sage Abra HRMS (human resource management system), to online Sage Payroll Services. All 2007 and 2008 National Payroll Week sponsors will be recognized during the General Session today at American Payroll Association’s (APA) 26th Annual Congress, being held this week at the Austin Convention Center in Austin, Texas.
“Payroll solutions have always been core to our business,” said Karl Grass, senior vice president and general manager of Employer Solutions at Sage Software. “For more than 30 years, we have been dedicated to helping small and mid-sized businesses comply with complex payroll tax and compliance statutes. Today, more than 140,000 customers use Sage Software’s payroll products and services to pay more than 5 million U.S. employees.”
NPW celebrates the hard work by America’s 156 million wage earners and the payroll professionals who pay them. Together, through the payroll withholding system, they contribute, collect, report and deposit approximately $1.7 trillion, or 64.2%, of the annual revenue of the U.S. Treasury.
Sage Software offers comprehensive “best-of-breed” payroll solutions, including Abra Payroll software, part of the Sage Abra HRMS product line, Sage Payroll Services for outsourced payroll, and Sage Compliance Services for payroll tax filing and reporting.
