BCSG partners with Sage

Richmond, B.C. (Nov. 3, 2014) – BCSG, an award-winning cloud application marketplace provider, announced today that it has partnered with Sage, maker of Sage One, a simple, easy-to-use online accounting software solution designed for small businesses.

The partnership aims to bring applications such as Sage One to small businesses in new ways, as demonstrated in the recent launch of the MasterCard’s Business Owners Toolbox. This is a new online hub provided by BCSG for business owners who have a business account with MasterCard and their employees. Sage One is one of a number of carefully selected business tools and software that is included in the Toolbox, which is being offered by MasterCard to provide tools, insights and offers specifically created to give business owners more time.

Tom Platt, commercial director at BCSG, said:
“Building on the success that BCSG and Sage have seen in the UK, we are expanding the relationship further globally, starting with Canada. BCSG and Sage see Canada as a key territory given the large addressable market of SMBs and the strong early adoption of cloud services.

“Sage One provides SMBs with quality tools to address some of their key challenges like financial management and invoicing.”

Nancy Harris, SVP and general manager of Canada at Sage North America, said:
“Sage recognizes that starting a new business can be incredibly daunting. A lot of decisions need to be made. A lot of processes need to be implemented. This all takes time. What many small businesses forget is that software can help increase their efficiencies.

Partnering with BCSG helps Sage to continue our goal of supporting small business by providing solutions, such as Sage One, that can help free up their time so they can not only do what they love, but also succeed at it.”
