"We want to empower small businesses with effortless mobile accounting software capabilities," said Nancy Harris, Sage North America executive vice president and managing director, Canada. "The integration of Sage 50 Accounting and Sage One provides our customers with the choice to perform simple accounting and operational tasks through many mobile phones and web-connected devices and ultimately helps to save time and resources that can be redirected toward growing their business."

The integration enables Sage 50 customers to easily transfer transaction files such as invoices and expenses from Sage One into Sage 50. In addition, it facilitates the data synchronization of customers, vendors, products and services between the two software solutions and simplifies the setup of Sage One for customers with existing Sage 50 data.

Customers can also choose to go a step further by moving their Sage 50 data to Sage Drive, a cloud storage service that will provide customers and their bookkeepers with access to the most current versions of company files from anywhere at any time.

The new hybrid cloud accounting option can benefit the 14,000 Sage Accountants Network partners across Canada as well, helping to save significant time and resources by automating access to their clients’ most current data. Our accounting partners can take advantage of a wider range of online and desktop accounting solutions through this upgrade, knowing that they can better serve their clients with the proactive advice needed to make optimal business decisions.

"The integration between Sage 50 Accounting and Sage One has provided my business with the best of both worlds," said Jaime Rein, owner of Rein Business Services and member of the Sage Accountants Network. "It allows my clients to collaborate with me when managing their business and provides the real-time information access I need to help my clients succeed."
