We support our business builders for life by offering choice, support, expertise and innovation. We champion your causes and provide world-leading advice and support when you need it most.

Like the business builders we serve, Sage began as a modest British startup with a big ambition.

Our founder David Goldman wanted to automate accounting processes in his own business. Working with a team of students from Newcastle University in the UK, he developed software to make it happen – and discovered other businesses could benefit from this too. In 1981, our founder David Goldman faced a problem. He wanted to create quotes quickly for his print business and keep track of his accounts. So David worked with a team from Newcastle, including Dr. Paul Muller, a computer expert who worked with NASA, and student Graham Wylie. Some eight years later, Sage was listed on the London Stock Exchange with a £20m (AU $37m) 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-site or both – offering the freedom to work with mobility. 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.
