Sage Trades Timesheets To Insperity, Inc For Endorsement And Unspecified Compensation

Sage today announced that they traded their Sage Timesheet product to Insperity Inc for an undisclosed amount.

Insperity Time and Attendance and Sage Employer Solutions, a business unit of Sage North America, also entered into an endorsement agreement, culminating a 20-year alliance between the two companies. The agreement positions InsperityTM TimeStarTM, a premier time and attendance software, on Sage’s exclusive list of endorsed products.

For a period of time Sage positioned TimeSheet as an wickedly over-priced add-on project management tool for their Sage 100 ERP product (then Sage ERP MAS 90 and MAS 200). It had recently been offered as a project management tool with Sage ERP MAS 500 and as a standalone time tracker.

This year Sage announced that Sage 500 as being positioned as a non-core product which may mean that within a few years support may terminate as Sage 500 joins this list of other Sage products on the Island of Misfit Toys.
