Sage, the market leader in accounting, payroll and payments, has today released Sage Live for UK entrepreneurs and accountants – helping small and medium businesses fundamentally change the way they manage their finances for the better.

Announced at Sage Summit, Sage Live is an integrated cloud accounting solution that gives small and medium businesses a single real-time source of information so they can look ahead and efficiently manage their business from the palms of their hands.

Developed in partnership with Salesforce, Sage Live is built on the Salesforce App Cloud, the world’s #1 enterprise platform as a service [PaaS], which enables businesses to run completely in the cloud. Sage Live connects with thousands of apps, giving entrepreneurs exactly what they need to help them run their companies.

Marketing communications company Kingpin is already using Sage Live, giving it a single, real-time view of its data that is changing the way it manages its finances.

“Sage Live is transforming how we do business,” said James Foulkes, Director & Co-Founder of Kingpin.  “We’re currently growing and Sage Live gives me one single view of my customers.

“We no longer meet in a boardroom – we’re working out of the office and on our mobile devices. While we might have had Wi-Fi access in the past, now, we have real-time information.”

Santiago Solanas, Sage’s Global Chief Marketing Officer comments, “The future is mobile, and we’re giving our customers the power to control their businesses from the palms of their hands.

“Using the smartest technology, we want to help our customers focus on their businesses and help them leapfrog to the future.”

Sage Live is available on subscription starting at £15 month per business user and £30 per month per full user for the Sage Live Essential package.
