Sage : for Accountants brings proposal to advisory management to uk practices

11/26/2021 | 07:30am EDT

24th November 2021 - Sage, the market leader for cloud business management solutions, today announced the availability of Sage for Accountants, Sage's newest solution to support UK accountants to work in concert with their clients. In addition, Sage also shared its plans to further unify and digitalise accountants' practices with one-click access to a suite of tools that will provide UK accountants with a single environment to manage their practice with Sage.

In this era of unprecedented environmental, economic, and technological transformation, virtually every industry is experiencing some form of change. With Making Tax Digital a reality the shift to digital-first accounting is seen as imperative by nearly all accountants - with new Sage research showing 99% of accountants are using some form of digital accounting.

By ensuring accountants are equipped for what's now, and what's next, Sage is elevating their work beyond the day-to-day, freeing them up to provide the human touch, as well as free apps and training.

Designed by accountants for accountants, Sage for Accountants removes the friction from practice management by providing onboarding, connected client management and productivity tools, truly digitized data collection and smart reporting, bookkeeping, payroll, and compliance. In addition, Sage will provide training and education on how to start, run and grow a practice, and advise on how to become a value-add service for their clients - enabling accountants to achieve their goals.

"Whilst digitalisation has accelerated, 60% of accountancy firms say they don't feel confident using their software. The reason? Having digital products isn't enough, accountants need truly digitised tools and connected, frictionless experiences." said Neal Watkins, EVP, Small Business Segment, Sage. "Today we have shared our vision for a truly unified and digitalised end-to-end proposal-to-advisory solution. This journey starts today with the availability of Sage for Accountants to UK practices - as we move through the coming 12months accountants will experience the integration of inhouse and 3rd party apps that will further bring the experience to life - continuing to free up accountants to deliver their most impactful and fulfilling client experience, elevating their work beyond the day-to-day."
