Sage North America, a leading provider of business management software and services to more than 6 million small and midsized businesses worldwide, announced today the Sage Listens RV Relay in Canada. On this three-city tour Sage executives will rally communities in Ottawa, Montreal and Toronto to shop local to support their regional economy. They will also meet with customers to help them push their businesses to the next level.

"Local businesses are the foundation of every community's economy. For every $100 spent at local businesses, up to $68 stays in the community,1" said Nancy Harris, senior vice president and general manager of Sage 50 Accounting-Canadian Edition, who will lead the Canadian RV tour. "We're going on the road to help consumers better appreciate and support the merchants and companies based in their communities. At the same time, we want to show our appreciation of our customers and help them maximize their software investments."

The Sage Listens RV Relay is a literal and figurative vehicle for Sage executives to personally visit customers to build stronger relationships and will also help the team gain insights into new feature and service requirements to better support its customers. The tour will feature customer visits and special events - all while promoting the "Shop Local" concept.
