Sage Launches Online Hub Developed by Accountants, for Accountants

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - May 13, 2015) - Sage Impact, a new, fully customisable online hub developed by Sage and the accounting community, launches today. 

Sage collaborated with accountants and bookkeepers to review and rethink the changing role of accounting professionals, as core areas like tax and compliance have become more automated. For the first time, Sage has brought together many of the everyday tools accountants and bookkeepers need to manage their business in one place. Sage Impact transforms the way accounting professionals work and broadens the range of services they can offer to clients.

Sage Impact is designed to work the way accountants and bookkeepers do. Built on an open platform, the product integrates with many of the everyday tools accountants currently use to run their businesses. What's more, it's fully customisable -- from news alerts to updates from social networks -- so each business can design its own personalised platform, allowing accountants to work the way that best suits them.

Accessible on any device, Sage Impact lets accountants and bookkeepers take their entire practice with them wherever they go, ready and prepped to provide facts, figures, and insight whether on client visits, at board meetings, or with auditors.

Jennifer Warawa, global vice president, product marketing for accountants, said: "Accountants and bookkeepers don't need more tools -- they need the right tools. They want a platform that adapts to their needs and delivers the right information when and where they need it. Sage Impact is a significant breakthrough -- we know this because it's been designed by the community itself. It will free them from the busy work of data entry and endless reporting. It's time for accountants to become the accountant of their dreams."

"Sage Impact makes your homepage truly feel like an accountant-centric dashboard," said Jody Padar, CPA, MST, New Vision CPA Group, CEO and principal, author of the Radical CPA. "This solution is driven by what accountants use daily and want to see. I can't wait to customise Sage Impact with more of my favorite apps."

This landmark launch is one of many significant product developments at Sage. The company is focused on championing small business and accountant communities around the world by helping customers reimagine the business of doing business.

Sage Impact is complimentary for accountants and bookkeepers in practice, and is immediately available in the UK, Ireland and the US. Availability in other additional geographies will soon be added.
