Sage Intelligent Time is the only AI-powered time entry system built into a full-featured ERP system. Sage Intelligent Time provides each member of your team with an AI-powered time assistant that provides suggested time entry cards based on that employee's calendar, email, and other activity.

Automation around time entry, expenses, invoice formats, vendors, and all the other components required for billing, are instantly available for your team to quickly draft and issue invoices.

By leveraging the general ledger's dimensions, reports can be grouped and sorted in a nearly unlimited way. When financial reporting is done right, it removes the burden of administrative tasks to allow your financial team to focus on strategic planning. Whether you're creating multiple profit and loss reports, or automating project reports for your project managers, Sage can handle what you need.
