Pervasive Software Inc. (Nasdaq:PVSW), Austin, Texas, a provider of software that delivers the freedom to create applications for everyone, everywhere, has announced that Sage Software, a leading provider of business management solutions to small and medium-sized businesses, has chosen Pervasive.SQL 2000 as the database engine for its new DacEasy Version 10 for Windows small business accounting software. In previous news, Pervasive has announced that Sage also selected Pervasive.SQL 2000 for its BusinessWorks Gold accounting and business management solution.

DacEasy is an easy-to-use, integrated accounting solution that simplifies the accounting process and enhances productivity for small businesses with up to 50 employees. The award-winning DacEasy software package has an installed base of more than 65,000 users worldwide. The latest release, DacEasy Version 10, gives end users a host of new features and powerful functionality to make their accounting processes run more efficiently.

New DacEasy Version 10 capabilities include the Pervasive.SQL 2000 database for high-speed transactional data access, support for Windows 2000, Microsoft Office integration for presentation-quality reports, multi-level inventory for easier product tracking, the ability to do sub-accounts receivable and accounts payable, on-line tax notification, and other user-requested functions.

"DacEasy has successfully used Pervasive's database engines in its applications for many years. Pervasive.SQL 2000 now provides DacEasy with an easy solution for migrating its existing code base from DOS to Windows," said Stephanie Kleber, director of DacEasy sales for Sage Software, Inc. "The ease of transition to Windows with minimal impact on existing application code was an overriding factor in our choice of Pervasive.SQL 2000. With Pervasive.SQL 2000 as the underlying 'zero-administration' database, new DacEasy users can be up and running in no time. For existing DacEasy users, Pervasive.SQL 2000 offers the same fast, reliable access in a Windows environment that our installed base has enjoyed for years, without increasing the learning curve."

The database's scalability was also a major factor in Sage's decision to embed Pervasive.SQL 2000 in DacEasy. "It was important for DacEasy to find a scalable database solution that would support our immediate business needs, as well as our more ambitious long-term objectives," Kleber added.

"The decision to embed Pervasive.SQL 2000 in the DacEasy product underscores the strength of Pervasive's and Sage's business relationship, and it demonstrates that our database engine continues to provide the data management technology of choice for industry-leading OEM customers," said David Dunnigan, senior vice president of marketing and sales at Pervasive Software. "Pervasive.SQL 2000 gives DacEasy customers lightning-fast transactional data access, as well as industry-standard relational access to information, while significantly reducing the administrative overhead often associated with installing and maintaining a robust database solution."

DacEasy is one of five major accounting software packages that Sage Software markets in the United States. Three of these five packages--DacEasy, BusinessWorks and Peachtree--are powered by Pervasive's database engines. Sage Software provides flexible, database-driven accounting solutions for more than two million customers around the world, ranging from manufacturing to financial services companies.
