IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/14/12 --  Sage North America today
announced the launch of Job Ready, an education-rich initiative that
empowers construction and real estate professionals to think boldly,
act decisively, and run their businesses more efficiently.

"Being Job Ready means more than just having the right tools; it is
about gaining business knowledge and understanding how to use
information and technology to better manage a construction or real
estate business," said Jon Witty, vice president and general manager
of Sage Construction and Real Estate. "Sage knows that today's firms
cannot afford to deal with situations and challenges in a reactive
manner. We are committed to helping construction and real estate
professionals focus on a variety of key topics so they can be
prepared to tackle challenges and better position themselves to
remain competitive and grow their businesses in a tight market." 
Through its new Job Ready website, Sage will provide education and
resources including case studies, expert insights, and practical tips
on a series of topics to help construction and real estate
organizations focus on key business concerns. Business Visibility,
the first Job Ready topic, focuses on the five types of visibility
every construction firm should have: reporting, to know what happened
in the past; monitoring, to know what's happening now; analyzing, to
understand why things happened; predicting, to know what might
happen; and mobilizing to access key project data from anywhere. 
A Business Visibility reference guide and an interactive e-book "The
Construction Executive's Interactive Guide to Business Visibility;
Part 1: Reporting" are among the first free resources available on
the topic of Business Visibility. Stay informed of new content,
tools, and resources for all Job Ready topics as they are released by
