Sage began as a modest British startup.

In 1981, our founder David Goldman wanted to create quotes quickly for his print business and keep track of his accounts. David worked with a team from Newcastle University, including Dr. Paul Muller, a computer expert who worked with NASA, and Graham Wylie, a student. Our founders realized that other businesses could benefit from this too. Some eight years later, Sage was listed on the London Stock Exchange with a £20m (USD 24.5m) valuation.

Today we work with millions of businesses in all types of industries around the world. Over 11,000 employees serve our customers in more than 20 countries.

Our solutions manage accounting, HR, payroll, payments, assets, construction, real estate, and enterprise systems.

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.

Let's build a better future 

We envision a world where all people and communities thrive because they are living with economic stability and social equality. If our local communities thrive, so do we. For us, this is the right way to do business.
