Sage Announces 2009 Sage Community Service Business Partner Awards

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - December 22, 2009) - Sage North America announced today the Sage Community Service awards for 2009, which recognizes Sage Business Solutions (SBS) partners exemplifying outstanding commitments to social responsibility to their communities. Winners of the first two Sage Community Service awards are Bredet Services Inc., Oakville, Ontario CN and DSD Business Systems, San Diego, CA.

"At Sage, we believe that businesses and people alike lead by example, and that is why we consider corporate responsibility both a privilege and a duty," said Jodi Uecker-Rust, president, Sage Business Solutions division. "We are proud to acknowledge and thank the people at Bredet Services and DSD Business Systems for the work that has earned them our first Sage Community Service awards."

Bredet Services Inc. helps generate tens of thousands of dollars for national and local charities such as the Children's Wish Foundation, the Terry Fox Run and the Canadian Cancer Society. At Christmas time the company sends care packages to troops in Afghanistan, as well as underprivileged children. For more than 25 years Bredet Services Inc. also has specialized in supporting Sage ERP customers with the same passion.

DSD Business Systems is grounded in the belief that responsibility, compassion and dedication to one's community are the true measurements of business success. From co-sponsoring San Diego's Adopt-a-Family at Christmas and Hire-a-Youth Programs, to extensive volunteer work in the county's educational system, the company truly embraces corporate citizenship. Established in 1984, DSD Business Systems brings similar dedication to the pursuit of helping Sage customers with a full line of integrated Sage business management solutions.

The Sage Community Service awards are part of the Sage Partner Advantage Award Series, which honors business partners for a variety of outstanding achievements. Business partners receiving the Sage Community Service awards have raised the bar in terms of corporate responsibility, recognizing the need to give back to the community through volunteerism and charity work. Nominations were submitted by Sage business partners and Sage employees with selections being made by a Sage executive committee.

Distinction as a Sage Community Service award recipient includes an invitation to the exclusive President's Circle. All Sage Partner Advantage Award Series recipients will be honored at an official awards ceremony at the luxurious Biltmore Resort and Spa in Phoenix, Arizona, January 25-27, 2010.
