Landmark solution for professional services sector sets standard for speed of integration with Sage Live
Kimble for Sage Live, a best-in-class preintegrated solution for consulting organizations, is now available just two months after the initial partnership between Sage and Kimble was signed.
The open API approach in Sage Live has made it simple, quick and easy for Kimble to develop Kimble for Sage Live. A wide range of ISVs is expected to follow Kimble’s lead and build preintegrated vertical solutions with Sage on the Salesforce1 platform. Over time, the new Sage collaborative and open ISV partner approach will give Small & Medium Businesses best-of-breed combinations on the Salesforce1 Platform. This model eclipses suites from single vendors.
Kimble for Sage Live broadens and deepens the capabilities available to management consulting, IT services businesses and embedded professional services organizations that use Sage Live, the real-time integrated accounting solution built on the Salesforce1 Platform. This best-of-breed combination of applications creates a single view of customer, resourcing, delivery and financial information to provide real-time visibility and control of business performance.
Speaking at Sage Summit, Santiago Solanas, Sage global CMO, said: “This is a pioneering approach to partnerships that we know will help drive greater value for our customers and give them the best technology available to run their businesses. Compared to the ‘closed’ approach of some of our competitors, we are opening up and allowing partners to build preintegrated vertical solutions with us on the Salesforce platform. And we are doing it at the speed of now, because when it comes to the success of your business, we know you can’t afford to wait.”
“We are delighted to be the first integrated solution available for Sage Live and be there at the very start of the real-time accounting revolution,” said Sean Hoban, CEO of Kimble Applications. “We know lots of ISVs are lining up to follow our lead. Small & Medium Businesses deserve the best of everything. They shouldn’t have to accept second best or put up with products that have some good individual components but are found wanting elsewhere.”
Following its launch at Sage Summit today, Sage Live is now available on subscription starting at $15 per month per business user and $30 per month per full user for the Sage Live Essential package.
Visitors to Sage Summit will have the opportunity to see a demo of Sage Live and Kimble for Sage Live, with product specialists on hand to walk them through the new world of real-time accounting.
