Sage has expanded its partnership with Microsoft with new plans to integrate Microsoft Business Products, including Microsoft 365 and Microsoft Teams, as embedded services in Sage products and the Sage Digital Network.
As SMBs navigate a digital world, businesses increasingly rely on the flexibility and productivity gains that the cloud provides. The partnership will support Sage in giving customers a choice of cloud platform, as well as the ability to collaborate and communicate where work happens – helping businesses to flow while making it simpler for them to do business.
The expanded partnership will provide simplification, improved reliability, and productivity to deliver streamlined digital work experiences with enhanced performance and reliability to help SMBs be more productive and businesses more agile.
This partnership reflects both companies’ aligned sustainability objectives. The shared goal is to promote sustainable development and low-carbon business practices globally through sustainable business practices and cloud-enabled technologies.
Scott Guthrie, executive vice president of cloud and AI at Microsoft, said: “SMBs play a vital role in our global economy. Bringing together Sage’s financial expertise with the power of the Microsoft Cloud, our partnership will deliver reliable, secure, and scalable solutions that will empower millions of SMBs around the world to be more productive, reduce costs, and grow their businesses.”
Stacy Schuettler, president of LBMC Technology Solutions, said: “The need for more business flexibility and resilience has never been greater. Together, Sage and its partners are helping to accelerate the transformation of customers’ businesses into intelligent and frictionless organizations that run with confidence in the cloud. Sage has been at the forefront of supporting businesses for 40 years – we are excited by the new horizons this partnership provides and the opportunities it will give our customers to be more productive and simplify their operations.”
