Foxglove shakes up the right combination for business growth with Sage Accounting

Foxglove Cocktails - Ireland

Foxglove Cocktails is a West Cork-based maker of 100% natural cocktail mixers. The firm was established by brother and sister team Tara and Rory Copplestone in 2020.

Starting from scratch

Foxglove is the first business venture for the Copplestone siblings and, as a two-person team, they faced a steep learning curve. They found manual accounting cumbersome and wanted a solution that would reduce that burden and support business growth. A friend recommended Sage Accounting, but the Copplestones feared Foxglove was too small to benefit.

Before Sage, it took me over three weeks to go through six months’ of receipts. Now … I just take a photo and upload it to Sage every week using the app on my phone.

Sage supports growth from the outset

After initial conversations, the pair saw that Sage Accounting is designed to provide small businesses with the tools to accelerate growth, and that it would allow Foxglove Cocktails to automate receipt processing, send and track invoices quickly and gain more visibility over its fledgling operations. They were also impressed by the support available from Sage.

It surprised me how easy [Sage] was to use. Our dedicated business account manager has helped guide us from the start, and the Live Chat support online is great too.

Releasing time for growth-focused activity

Foxglove quickly noticed the direct benefits of Sage Accounting, which include 2-3 hours saved daily with automated receipt input, and more time to spend on production, R&D and marketing. Further benefits include targeted support from their dedicated Sage team member, and the opportunity to expand business expertise through Sage University.

Sage has helped us adopt good operational habits that I feel will benefit us for the long term.
