Sage recently entered into an global agreement with Microsoft to collaborate and develop its new products on Microsoft platforms. Through this agreement, Sage will deliver next-generation accounting and bookkeeping productivity tools built on Microsoft cloud solutions for SMBs.
Sage extended its two decades old relation with Microsoft to deliver cloud, on-premise and hybrid solutions for small businesses at a global level.
Alan Laing, EVP, global strategic partnerships and alliances at Sage, commented: “We have enjoyed a long and fruitful relationship with Microsoft for many years at a local level, but this new agreement is about taking a step back to look at the bigger picture. We’re imagining what could be made possible for Small & Medium Businesses if our two organizations worked more closely together on a global scale. We’re really excited about the possibilities – the greatest developer minds working on the very latest platforms to build exciting new solutions for Small & Medium Business in the long-term.”
“We’re pleased to be growing our relationship with Sage, building upon their work with Azure, and extending it to the Office 365 platform. By developing on the Office 365 platform, Sage will ultimately help accountants and bookkeepers to be more productive.” said Julia White, General Manager of Office 365 Product Marketing, Microsoft Corp.
