Sage 50 CA Intelligence Reporting RETIRING?

We recently received an email from Sage announcing they will be retiring SAGE INTELLIGENCE REPORT for Sage 50 CAN with the next update.  Is this only on the Canadian version or is it going to be removed from the US version also?  Why is it being removed?

We used one of the reports every week.  The Project Info and TimeSlips report was used weekly to check our Project labour and expense budget.  We are always looking for ways to keep track of our budget to stay on track with our Projects.

We are wondering if anyone else was using this report and if anyone would have a good alternative with similar pricing and qualities. Sage is suggesting an Excel add on, XLGL, and was wondering if anyone is using it now and if it's worth it?

Looking forward and any feedback out there Slight smile
