Sage View is a cloud-based solution that allows accountants to monitor and advise on client businesses in real time. Through powerful dashboards, analysis, customizable key performance indicators (KPIs), and automated reports, accountants can review their clients’ business performance at any time, all in one place. They will no longer need to request additional files from clients, create elaborate spreadsheets, or track and analyze information through various client accounting packages. As a result, Sage View allows the accountants to accomplish more in a day, all the while providing them with deep financial insights into client businesses on an ongoing basis so that they can help clients make faster and better business decisions.

"We understand that accountants want to be their clients' trusted financial advisors year round, instead of only during tax time," said Ray Barlow, vice president of Accountant Solutions for Sage North America. "We are helping accountants achieve this goal through Sage View, an accountant-focused solution that empowers them to deepen relationships with their clients and become their clients’ most well-informed and valued financial advisor."

Sage View is currently compatible with Sage 50 Accounting—Canadian Edition and will support additional cloud and desktop accounting solutions such as Sage One—Canadian Edition and even non-Sage accounting solutions in the very near future. Essentially, accountants will be able to use Sage View regardless of the accounting solution(s) their clients use.

Since it is important for accountants to access key client data from multiple accounting solutions in one place, quickly, easily and securely, Sage designed drill-down capabilities such as further insight and prioritization of follow-up or action items in Sage View. Sage recognizes that accountants prefer to look at information in different ways, therefore Sage View is designed to offer abundant customization opportunities within screens, reports as well as KPIs.

"We remain focused on providing the solutions accountants need to deliver high value to clients on an ongoing basis," said Jennifer Warawa, global vice president of Product Marketing for Accountants at Sage Group. "Sage View is a unique solution that provides accountants with the information they need to give high-value advice and work with the accountants' current portfolio of accounting solutions to help them grow their firms with confidence."

Sage View is now available to accountants starting at $19.95 per month. For more information, including how to get started, please visit: www.sage.com/ca/accountant/sage-view.
