Kimble Applications – a leading professional services automation provider – will augment Sage Life.
Kimble Applications, a global leader in professional services automation (PSA), announces Kimble for Sage Life, a pre-integrated solution for consulting organisations. Sage’s established accounting applications are already the most popular choice for Kimble customers, and Kimble for Sage Life will ensure the integration between PSA and finance is seamless.
Kimble promises to broaden and deepen the capabilities available to management consulting, IT services businesses and embedded professional services organisations that use Sage’s new Sage Life solution, built on the Salesforce1 Platform.
This best of breed combination of applications will centralise customer, resourcing, delivery and financial information to provide real-time visibility and control of business performance.
Stephen Kelly, CEO of Sage, commented: “Kimble’s out-of-the-box functionality and integration with Salesforce’s Sales Cloud superbly complements Sage Life – Kimble’s commitment to empowering business people in organisations with tens or hundreds of people is perfectly aligned with ours.”
Sean Hoban, CEO of Kimble Applications commented: “We have grown quickly as part of the Salesforce ecosystem, so being able to partner with Sage, the world leader in accounting and payroll for small and medium businesses at the same time, on the same platform, will further accelerate our growth.”
“We believe that pre-integrated, best-of-breed combinations on the Salesforce1 Platform will eclipse suites from a single vendor. The hybrid approach offers customers more choices, speed to value and agility. Suites are a solution to a problem that no longer exists: application integration is a non-issue when everything is on Salesforce.”
“If your business included product-selling, consultancy and training wouldn’t you want to source applications from individual software authors that really understand each of those domains? You would also want to combine those specialist vertical applications with horizontal applications from leaders in pipeline management, finances and human resources management. The next generation of business systems will adopt this approach – they’ll be mobile, social and you won’t see the joins.”
