Referral Partners

You qualify to become a Referral Partner if you actively refer clients to Sage VIP and if your line of business falls into one of these categories:

  • Computer Software
  • Computer Hardware
  • Accounting Professionals
  • Electronic Banking
  • HR Consulting
  • Time & Attendance Systems
  • ERP Systems
  • Accounting software

As a partner you will identify potential new Payroll & HR clients and log them as referrals with Sage VIP. One of our sales consultants will contact the client and arrange for a free software demonstration or submit a quotation after a telephone discussion.

Once we receive the order from the client, a consultant will complete the software installation and the client will be contacted to book for classroom training or E-Learning. You will be notified of the commission amount to be claimed from Sage VIP. 

Referral Partner status and benefits are dependent on the number of new clients referred in a 12 month period.  Referral Partners will be able to upgrade their status throughout the year.
