Sage Offering Hosting Solutions for Small Businesses

Sage North America recently released the Small Business Accounting Hosting Provider, a program which enables authorized independent hosting partners to offer small businesses secure, anytime, anywhere access to Sage Peachtree and Sage Simply Accounting, as a managed hosted service. Sage is a leading global supplier of business management software and related products and services. Their clients are primarily small to medium-sized businesses, with over 6 million customers worldwide.

“Small businesses want a solution that works the way that they do; many of them appreciate the powerful features of a desktop product, but would like the flexibility of an online solution,” said Jennifer Warawa, vice president of partner programs Sage. “Through our new Hosting Provider program, we’re offering small businesses the best of both worlds: the strength of the desktop coupled with the flexible access of an online system. Bringing hosted solutions to our customers gives them yet another option to make their business lives easier.”

With the Hosting Provider program, small businesses can access their data securely (whenever, wherever) via the platform of their choice (Mac of PC). In addition, they can easily collaborate with their accountant while working in the same environment.

Sage Peachtree describes their product as “instant gratification” in that benefits are readily apparent as soon as you begin using it.

Working in a hosted environment helps improve productivity, enables remote client service, makes for easier collaboration and same time data access for them and their clients.
