Drive-ing Home for Christmas takes on new meaning for thousands of small businesses celebrating the festive period

18 December 2014

Highly anticipated release of Sage Drive means businesses across the country can stay in control of their finances on the move and out of the office.

Business software and services provider Sage today released its new Sage Drive service and mobile apps for Sage 50 Accounts, signalling the start of the great Christmas get away for sales people, finance directors, accountants, and owner managers who can now work securely on the move.

Spreading Christmas cheer with the promise of the power of desktop coupled with the flexibility of cloud and mobile devices, Lee Perkins, Managing Director, Start-up and Small Business for Sage UK and Ireland, said: “Sage 50 Accounts is the most powerful finance solution on the market for small businesses, so today’s landmark release of Sage Drive means much of the country’s business community can benefit from greater control and insight of their business finances anytime and anywhere.”

Sage has worked closely with customers and accountants at all stages of development to build a service that will make life easier and more effective for a range of different audiences through greater control and insight of business finances.

Luke Morgan, from Nantwich Cheese Company LTD, explained: “Sage Drive is a great tool, it allows our entire team to collaborate and access key data from any location, whether that’s sales teams out in the field, buyers on the move or even our MD while on Holiday! We’re really pleased with the functionality, ease of use and speed of collaboration.

“As a food manufacturer we operate 24 hours a day, so having system access from anywhere allows our factory manager to view important data and resolve issues at any time of day or night. It has allowed us to offer our employees flexible working and to accommodate staff wanting to work from home. It’s also great for our MD when not in the office, as he can still keep in the loop.”

Sage 50 Accounts with Sage Drive now offers businesses the best of both worlds with the trusted power of desktop for processing and speed alongside the encrypted security of cloud to share data and give flexibility of access from any location through PC or Mobile and tablet apps.

These new releases are a significant milestone in Sage’s cloud strategy and will revolutionise the way that hundreds of thousands of small businesses manage their finances by providing anytime, anywhere access to their data and the ability to share accounts in real time with their accountant via the cloud.

The brand new mobile and tablet apps are specifically tailored for the changing needs of small businesses and are available on both iOS and Android:

  • Sage 50 Accounts Tracker app –  for fast on-demand insight into business performance, including sales, purchases and bank position, plus a convenient search for customer and supplier contact details
  • Sage 50 Accounts Mobile Sales app - everything needed for remote end-to-end sales management, including the ability to create quotes, orders and invoices as well as check stock and prices.
