It's a question we get asked many times: what is Sage software? Along with other questions like who are Sage and what does Sage do? So, in this blog post we'll be dispelling any myths, answering all these questions and explaining more about Sage, Sage Software and what we do here at Onesys.

Who Are Sage?

Sage are a leading provider of enterprise resource planning software, otherwise known as ERP software. The Sage Company was founded in the North East of England, and despite now working with businesses worldwide, their headquarters remain in Newcastle upon Tyne where it all started.

Today Sage are working with approximately 6.2 million businesses around the globe and are the world’s third largest supplier of enterprise resource planning software. In particular, Sage have been successful in providing its software solutions to small and medium sized businesses since it started in 1981.

 

What Does Sage Do?

Essentially Sage are software developers focusing on developing solutions specifically designed to help businesses. Originally Sage focussed on developing software for Accountants, but over the years their product range has expanded dramatically.

Not only do they provide software solutions and packages, but they now also offer services such as SagePay, an online payment gateway intended to simplify the payment process and Sage Live, which is a business management and accounting software in one.

 

What is Sage Software?

The key software solutions Sage offers can be roughly divided into three areas: Accounting, Payroll and Human Resource Management and Payments.

Precisely which software solutions are available in which country differs slightly, as the products tend to be specifically tailored for each region’s specific accounting, payroll and taxation legislation. For example, Sage 50c Accounts is specific to UK businesses, whereas Sage One is a worldwide software solution.
