Tips for Requesting Sage BusinessWorks Support

You’re in the middle of a big check run or entering invoices, or reconciling the bank, or….  The list can go on and on.  Something happens, and you cannot proceed.

You need help, and you kind of need it NOW.

In order to provide you with quick Sage BusinessWorks support, please think about the following:

Locate the Software Version

First, let us know what version of software you are currently running.  The Version tells us what “year”, and the “SP” number tells us what Service Pack.

If you’re not sure, you can go to the Help menu at the top of BusinessWorks and choose “About”.
