28 June 2023 – Sage – the leader in accounting, financial, HR and payroll technology for small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) – today announces an expanded relationship with Amazon Web Services (AWS), focused on helping SMBs speed up their digital transformation and benefit from the latest technology.
The news marks first-time availability on AWS in the US for customers of award-winning accounting software Sage Intacct. Sage Intacct customers now have the expanded flexibility to scale at pace, knowing they’re supported by the availability, reliability, and security delivered by AWS. In addition, AWS customers can now benefit from Sage Intacct on AWS to modernise their finance function, unlock efficiencies by automating finance processes, and save time by making decisions faster using real-time data and insights.
Sage Intacct has expanded regional availability on AWS to the US, after launching in the AWS US West (Oregon) Region. This move enhances existing AWS availability in the AWS Canada (Central) Region, AWS Australia (Sydney) Region, and AWS Europe (Ireland) Region, which also supports Sage Intacct in South Africa. “Providing SMBs with the added flexibility of cloud access to Sage's flagship products on AWS is crucial in helping them digitally transform and future-proof their businesses,” said Eduardo Rosini, the Executive Vice President of Partners & Alliances at Sage. “This relationship between Sage and AWS offers SMBs cutting-edge cloud innovation, real-time access to data analytics and insights, and a modern finance solution with secure and compliant data storage.”
Rachel Skaff, Managing Director, Americas Channel and Partner Sales, AWS, adds: “We’re thrilled to expand our relationship with Sage, helping small and mid-sized businesses accelerate their finance and digital transformation with access to Sage Intacct on AWS. Our secure, scalable, and reliable cloud infrastructure, combined with Sage’s powerful accounting software, will directly help SMBs modernise, and gain access to the latest cloud technology.”
Like customers who will benefit from the new platform in the US, Canadian not-for-profit, Hope’s Home, has been able to take advantage of Sage Intacct powered by AWS. CFO Sudesh Galhenage explained: “It was essential for us have our organisation’s data held in a secure environment in Canada. When we learned Sage was working with AWS in Canada, we felt confident moving ahead with our digital transformation initiative.”
