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. Today over 13,000 colleagues 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 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 Newcastle University students, 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 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 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.

What is ISO9001:2015?

ISO 9001 is the internationally recognised standard for quality management of businesses, and it is used by more than 1 million organisations worldwide. This standard provides a framework for quality that covers the processes that create and control the products and services an organisation supplies.

ISO9001:2015 helps us manage our business processes efficiently and demonstrates our commitment to quality and continual improvement. Sage has made a commitment to providing quality products and services to our customers; remaining ISO 9001 registered is a big part of our commitment.

To ensure we remain at this standard we have set out a Quality Management System (QMS) to ensure that: We consistently provide products and services to meet our customers' expectations and, where applicable, statutory or legal requirements. We continually improve, through the use of our QMS and our quality policy, and enhance customers' experience when dealing with us or our products and services.
