Sage makes simple and beautiful iOS applications for Sage One and Sage Live

Enhances user experience and accelerates expense management to just seconds

Chicago, 27 July 2016 - Sage, the market leader in cloud accounting software, announced today at Sage Summit 2016 that Sage One and Sage Live are now optimised for iOS, Apple’s mobile operating system.

Both Sage One and Sage Live support partners and accountants, with the now iOS-optimised versions enabling customers using iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch for day-to-day business processes to work while on the move. Sage has worked with Apple to completely redesign user interfaces to make the most of key iOS features like 3DTouch Location Services and TouchID. Sage will continue to work on including new iOS features to enhance user experience, interactions and usability.

The news follows the launch of Sage Expenses, a free app for iPhone and iPad that’s the fastest and simplest way to record and understand business transactions. With Sage Expenses, users don’t need special IT skills or accounting genius. In just a few seconds, a user can enter money-in and money-out transactions, take a photo of a receipt, and remove the effort of keeping track of many pieces of paper that often get lost or mislaid. The transactions and associated paperwork are kept together in the app and in the cloud for whenever the business owner or accountant needs them.

Sage CEO Stephen Kelly, said: “Mobility is at the heart of business transformation, and we’re just scratching the surface of its potential. As a mobility partner, Sage has worked closely with software and design experts at Apple to fine tune and optimise the Sage One and Sage Live experiences for iOS, as well as create an exciting new Apple Watch application. By creating beautiful easy to use applications, we’re able to maintain the best user experience that customers love, giving business owners peace of mind that their workflow will not be interrupted.”

As a mobility partner, Sage is working with a network of other partners, enhancing their services not only for the iOS platform, but also so they can work with other mobile partner applications. Allowing Sage and our partners to create a series of solutions that, together, transform how business is done.

The full Sage portfolio is on show at Sage Summit, the world’s largest gathering of entrepreneurs and leaders of Small & Medium Businesses, taking place in Chicago, IL, July 25-28.
