Developed on the Salesforce platform, Sage says its new solution will be the “most significant” change in the solution offering for accounting customers in the local Australian market.
Sage says by combining Salesforce CRM with Sage practice management and compliance functionality, users will effectively have a single client database as well as a single hub with access to real-time data to enable them to make “faster, more effective decisions, truly benefitting from one-suite online solution”.
According to Sage Australia’s Alan Osrin the partnership with Salesforce will unlock “enormous potential for Sage and its customers, both globally and locally here in Australia”.
“Combining accounting and the world’s preeminent client relationship management (CRM) functionality is transformational and one that we’re looking forward to harnessing in Australia and making available to our customers in 2016.”
Osrin says, more significantly for customers in Australia, the Salesforce partnership means Sage will be able to offer its customers “the next generation of fully integrated front, mid and back office software across its full suite of accounting, payroll and payment systems solutions”.
“Our Salesforce partnership provides Sage customers worldwide access to over 3,000 business apps, representing a rich ecosystem we can tap into for our Australian customers.
“This is the beginning of a new era, further bolstering our business by building on an already established global heritage of strong product development. We feel confident the timing of this cloud offer will secure strong and early adoption from our customers when we release this platform.”
