Sage Business Cloud Marketplace enables App developers to showcase solutions to millions of Sage customers, helping them to perform at their best
Sage, the leader in cloud business management solutions, announced a new Sage Marketplace where a curated selection of Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) can showcase popular Apps that link to Sage Business Cloud solutions. This means that customers can enhance their Sage Business Cloud solutions with bespoke industry and vertical applications.

All Marketplace apps can be reviewed and rated by users, enabling customers to compare solutions, and make the right choice for their business.

“In our survey studies, SMBs consistently cite application selection and integration as their top technology challenges. Most lack the time, expertise and money to solve this problem on their own. Sage validates and certifies application partner integrations, making it easier and more efficient for their customers to connect multiple solutions to run their business. As a result, the new Sage Marketplace makes it simpler for customers to discover, buy and use the right application,” said Laurie McCabe, co-founder at SMB Group.
As part of Sage’s SaaS strategy, the Marketplace continues to drive value to Sage customers through new and innovative solutions. It further broadens the scope of Sage Business Cloud with connected apps that provide bespoke cloud-based solutions across people, payments and payroll.

The Sage Marketplace is a strategic toolkit for Sage accountants and VAR partners looking to advise customers on how to increase their business performance. The new platform will provide easy online ordering, customer and user management and access to sales information, all in one place. Partners will experience the value of the Sage Marketplace as they see an increase in retention and revenue opportunities with trusted and integrated apps.
