Sage Small Business Accounting Solutions Now Available Anytime, Anywhere

Sage Peachtree and Sage Simply Accounting Now Available via Hosting Provider Program

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - Nov 7, 2011) - From the annual Sleeter Group conference, Sage North America today announced a new Small Business Accounting Hosting Provider program that enables authorized independent hosting partners to offer small businesses secure, anytime, anywhere access to Sage Peachtree and Sage Simply Accounting as a managed hosted service.

"Small businesses want a solution that works the way that they do; many of them appreciate the powerful features of a desktop product, but would like the flexibility of an online solution," said Jennifer Warawa, vice president, partner programs, Sage. "Through our new Hosting Provider program, we're offering small businesses the best of both worlds: the strength of the desktop coupled with the flexible access of an online system. Bringing hosted solutions to our customers gives them yet another option to make their business lives easier."

Through the Hosting Provider program, small businesses will now be able to access their data securely whenever, wherever, via the platform of their choice (Mac or PC), and easily collaborate with their accountant while working in the same environment. Adopting the hosted model also eliminates the need to deploy and administer Sage Peachtree or Sage Simply Accounting across a network, which can reduce time spent on hardware setup and overall maintenance costs.

For accountants, working in a hosted environment improves productivity, enabling remote client service, easier collaboration, and same time data access for them and their clients.

Sage made today's announcement from the annual Sleeter Group Conference, taking place today through Wednesday at the Cosmopolitan Hotel & Spa in Las Vegas. The Sleeter Group Conference annually draws hundreds of the world's top accounting experts, many of whom also provide software and hardware consulting services for small businesses. It is the premier event of the year for the small business accounting, consulting, and add-on developer community. On Wednesday, Himanshu Palsule, Sage executive vice president, strategy, will keynote at the conference, looking at the future of the accounting profession and the importance of choice in the years ahead for practitioners and their clients alike.
