Sage CEO, Stephen Kelly: "This is the Start of a Real-time Accounting Revolution for Business"

Sage Life Becomes Sage Live as Product Is Announced as Commercially Available at Sage Summit

NEW ORLEANS, LA--(Marketwired - Jul 28, 2015) - Sage Summit -- Sage Live, a real-time integrated accounting solution, is now available to entrepreneurs, giving them one source of information so they can look ahead and control their businesses from the palm of their hands.

The transformative product for Small & Medium Businesses is now live in the U.S., with availability in the U.K. and Ireland due to follow at the end of the summer.

By bringing everything together into a single real-time view, Sage Live will completely change the way Small & Medium Businesses are run and how they manage their finances. It will also connect with thousands of apps, giving entrepreneurs exactly what they need to help them run their business.

Developed in partnership with Salesforce, Sage Live is built on the Salesforce1 platform, the world's #1 enterprise platform as a service [PaaS], which enables small businesses to run completely in the cloud.

Santiago Solanas, global CMO of Sage, said: "This shows the new speed of execution Sage is working to. From conception in January, to availability in July. Sage Live puts your business in the palm of your hand and gives you real-time information that allows you to make decisions based on what's in the headlights, not the rear-view mirror. This is the start of a real-time accounting revolution for business."

With a multi-dimensional, multi-country accounting engine, Sage Live gives businesses one real-time source of information by smashing down the walls between front office and back office to create "one office". Now, entrepreneurs, accountants and employees can view their information in real time and work as one team.

Originally named Sage Life, the solution was first announced in May by Sage CEO Stephen Kelly and Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff. Since then businesses around the world have said they were excited about having live accounting and operational information in the palm of their hand. Taking on board their feedback and to reflect its commercial availability, Sage Life is becoming Sage Live.

Sage Live is available on subscription starting at $15 per month per business user and $30 per month per full user for the Sage Live Essential package.

Visitors to Sage Summit will have the opportunity to see a demo of Sage Live, with product specialists on hand to walk them through the new world of real-time accounting.
