Sage simplifies invoice and expense management with new features for iPhone and iPad

Sage, the market leader for integrated accounting, payroll and payment systems, today announced the launch of Sage Expenses & Invoicing, the fastest and most simple way to record and understand business transactions in the palm of your hand.

 

London, 17 November 2016 - Many millions of entrepreneurs and business builders consider accounting software to be too complex, time consuming and expensive. They avoid it by mostly using spreadsheets which creates more work over time and never provides a complete view of their business.

Sage Expenses & Invoicing completely eliminates the complexity of managing expenses with an app that records transactions in seconds, provides a real-time view of performance and eliminates all of the time wasted with paper records.

Sage Expenses and Invoices enables business builders to get going quickly for free by downloading the app to record their business transactions. Invoices can be added simply by subscribing to Sage One Start, our powerful and incredibly intuitive cloud accounting solution.

Key facts:

  • Sage Expenses & Invoicing is an easy-to-use mobile app for iPhone and iPad designed for micro and small businesses
  • Sage Expenses & Invoicing allows users to record money-in and money-out transactions for free quickly and simply, uploading photos as proof of sale or receipts
  • Users can add Invoicing functionality by subscribing to Sage One Start and move seamlessly to Sage One as their activities grow, giving access to enhanced features such as automated bank feeds and collaboration with an accountant
  • Initially available in the UK and US, Sage Expenses and Invoicing will be available everywhere in the coming months

In addition to the development of the Sage One Expenses & Invoices for iPhone and iPad, as an Apple mobility partner Sage enjoys the benefits of working with other Partners to further verticalise the solution for the benefit of their shared customers. Helping business builders work smarter, solve for the problems of today and tomorrow customers can now download complementary solution add-ons to Sage One from certified and credible partners.

One such partner is Talech, a cloud-based iPad point of sale software solution designed to help restaurant and retail businesses simplify operations and uncover insights to make better business decisions. Talech has recently completed an integration to enable customers to seamlessly sync sales data into Sage One, reducing manual entry and eliminating data imports or exports.

Head of Business Development, Al Echamendi at telech said “We are excited about the potential this brings to our shared customers. We believe the corner store should know as much about their business as the big box retailers or ecommerce sites, so they can make smart business decisions. Partnering with Sage allows us to further empower small- and medium-sized businesses owners with the tools and insights they need to be successful."

Nick Goode, EVP of Product Management at Sage said “This is a step change for the consumer and as the champion of business builders, Sage is proud to be part of this new way for them to make decisions about the apps they employ to manage their business. Apps that are perfect for business builders is the fulfilment of our vision for entrepreneurs, who would otherwise never dream of using accounting software”.

You can see the full range of Sage One products and services at the Business StartUp event at London Olympia on the 17th and 18th November.

There will be the opportunity for entrepreneurs to submit a 5 minute video pitch for a chance to win a StartUp package including one-year’s free consulting, hardware, membership of the Sage Club for business builders and promotion throughout 2017. The finalists will be invited to pitch their idea to an expert panel on January 12th 2017 as part of the MicroBiz Rocks press conference in London.
