London, UK (19 May) - Sage, the market leader for integrated accounting, payroll and payment systems, today announced a new release of Sage Live for iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch that helps Small & Medium businesses increase their agility.

Small businesses must respond at the speed of the market to win in today’s competitive landscape. Instant access to colleagues and information is a business imperative. This new release of the Sage Live mobile app makes real-time collaboration easier and more efficient, ultimately empowering companies to run their businesses from their phones.

Enhanced User Experience for the central communication hub, based on Salesforce Community Cloud, will help customers eliminate time consuming email chains for a natively social, real-time and action-oriented communication platform focused on the most important transactions in a business.

This release pairs the powerful accounting engine of Sage Live with best-of-breed Apple design concepts to create a powerful business management tool. Further enhancing Sage’s portfolio of Apple mobile apps, Sage Live delivers new levels of mobile first usability, collaboration, offline capabilities and a brand new user experience.

Key facts about Sage Live for iPad, iPhone and Apple Watch:

  • New collaboration capabilities, powered by Salesforce Community Cloud, to enable business-wide social interactions, giving instant access to colleagues and information.
  • A complete user interface refresh has made Sage Live beautifully fast and even easier to use.
