Sage Launches Innovative Connected Service to Empower Businesses and Their Employees

Sage Source Is Reinventing the Online Workspace to Help Employers Provide the Tools Their Employees Need to Achieve Work Life Balance

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 21, 2012) - Sage North America today announced the release of Sage Source, a forward-thinking new connected service designed to provide services and benefits to small and midsized businesses and their employees while encouraging work life balance.

Sage Source is an easy-to-use, personalized, web-based workspace through which companies can offer their employees secure access to an ever-growing library of value added services ("gadgets"), from personal payroll history to company announcements and shopping discounts. It is a cloud-based service accessible via internet connection 24 hours a day. Sage Source requires no training or IT administration, and is easy for businesses and their employees to start using right away. Sage Source extends the value of traditional, on-premise Sage products by making data securely available in the cloud.

Sage Source empowers small and midsized businesses by enhancing benefits packages to include offerings, such as group buying discounts, typically only offered in the past by larger organizations. It enables improved communication between a company and its workforce, and embraces advances in technology to help employees achieve work life balance.

Sage Source's customizable views ensure each employee has access to the information that is most relevant to them. Employees can view their pay stubs, read the latest news, download company forms, book travel, shop for the best deals, and more all from the same centralized online environment. Allowing employees to stay connected to the tools they use every day simplifies daily tasks and increases productivity.

"Sage Source is an innovative new application that provides businesses with the tools they need to be competitive in any industry and maximize their return on employee investment (ROEI)," said Johnny Laurent, vice president and general manager of Sage Employer Solutions. "Providing employees with exclusive business products and services helps fulfill a company's commitment to taking care of its employees; strengthens employee loyalty; and improves workforce engagement, motivation, and productivity."

Sage Source will be introduced to Sage customers in a phased approach by product, starting with Sage HRMS customers and will become available to customers of other product lines over the coming months. For more information visit
