Sage Accelerates Mobility Efforts With Apple


A new upgrade to Sage‘s mobile app will help users manage paper receipts while on the go as the company boosts its mobile capabilities.

Reports late last week highlighted the accounting and payroll firm’s latest developments following Sage Summit 2016, held only days ago. The company said it is now part of the Apple Mobility Partner Program and will use the initiative to enhance its support of iPads and iPhones.

Sage One for small businesses and Sage Live for accountants are now optimized for Apple devices, including the Apple Watch, reports said. Earlier this year, the company rolled out Sage Expenses, a free mobile app that helps professionals manage their transactions.

The tool features the ability to take a photo of a receipt and to automate data entry from the transaction into the Sage platform.

“Mobility is at the heart of business transformation, and we’re just scratching the surface of its potential,” said Sage CEO Stephen Kelly in a statement. “As a mobility partner, Sage has worked closely with software and design experts at Apple to fine tune and optimize the Sage One and Sage Live experiences for iOS, as well as create an exciting new Apple Watch application.”

“By creating beautiful and easy-to-use applications, we’re able to maintain the best user experience that customers love, giving business owners peace of mind that their workflow will not be interrupted,” he continued.

Reports said Sage will continue to enhance and add new features to its mobile apps for Apple devices and other platforms.
