Sage serves today's business builders

Sage is the market leader for integrated accounting, payroll, and payment systems, supporting the ambition of the world’s entrepreneurs. 

Like many of the businesses we serve, Sage began as a small business and has grown beyond what seemed imaginable at the start. Today over 13 000 Sage employees now support millions of entrepreneurs across 23 countries as they power the global economy.

We help drive today’s business builders with a new generation of solutions to manage everything from money to people.

Our social and mobile technology provides live information so you can make fast, informed decisions anytime, anywhere in the world. We support our business builders for life by offering choice, support, expertise, and innovation. We champion your causes and provide advice and support when you need it most.

Like the businesses we serve, Sage began as a modest British start-up with a big ambition.

Our founder, David Goldman, wanted to automate the accounting processes in his own business. Working with a team of Newcastle University students, he developed software to make that happen – and discovered other businesses could benefit from this too. In 1981 our founder, David Goldman, faced a problem. He wanted to quickly create quotes for his print business and keep track of his accounts. David then worked with a team from Newcastle including Dr Paul Muller, a computer expert, who had worked with NASA, America's space agency, and student, Graham Wylie. Some eight years later, Sage was listed on the London Stock Exchange with a £20m valuation.

Today we work with millions of business builders in all types of industries around the world. Our 13 000 employees serve our customers in 23 countries across Europe, Africa, Australia, Asia, Latin America and North America.

Our solutions manage accounting, HR, payroll, payments, assets, construction, real estate and enterprise systems.

They travel with business builders wherever they’re needed – in the cloud, on-premise, or both – offering the freedom to work anywhere and anytime. Our solutions fit the needs of startup, scale-up, and enterprise companies – whether that means staying on top of their finances, empowering their people or unleashing their power to grow their businesses.  

With Sage my payroll is efficient, mobile and always on time.

Let's build a better future.

We envision a world where all people and communities thrive because they are living with economic stability and social equality. If our local communities thrive, so do we.

Causes we care about

Last year Sage and its employees supported a number of organisations. We donated 3 480 items ranging from food to toys to help local charities.

Helping communities across the UK

Sage employees are given five paid days a year to help a charity. That's about 120 000 hours to make British communities a better place to live.

Looking after customers

Sage has emergency procedures to help customers when they need it most; we get businesses up and running again as quickly as possible.

Helping the next generation

We provide both complimentary and discounted software to high schools, universities and colleges. Since 2008 we've given away over £1 000 000 (that's more than R18 million) in software.
