Everything is coming under one big cloudy umbrella platform with a dash of AI thrown in as well.
Business software/cloud company Sage believes that it’s developed the “only cloud platform that businesses will ever need.”
Called the Sage Business Cloud, the platform is said to offer a “powerful set of cloud products” for small business accounting and advanced financial management to industry specific enterprise management software.
Sage Business Cloud is reported as being purpose-built to “support the next generation of business,” and will include accounting, financials, enterprise management, people, payroll, payments and banking products – in addition to access to a marketplace of add-on applications.
“Sage Business Cloud is the next transformative wave of business software. As the fourth industrial revolution continues to take hold, we want to make our customers lives simple. Businesses of all shapes and sizes need products that aid productivity, enable them to respond at lightning speed and deliver insights as well as opportunity. We have our foot on the gas and are ready to meet the needs of the most important people to our business – our customers. And we are just getting started.” said Stephen Kelly, CEO, Sage.
In essence the move is giving customers one product to deal with, or at least one umbrella anyway. With the company’s products sitting under one roof – Sage Business Cloud – which should make the whole process of using the company’s products more efficient.
The company also said that users of the cloud platform will benefit from Sage’s advances in AI and machine learning.
Kriti Sharma, VP of Artificial Intelligence at Sage said, “Artificial Intelligence is already helping us in our everyday lives by reducing the burden of administrative tasks and enhancing the performance of the workforce. Today, we are embedding AI and Machine Learning into Sage Business Cloud, so users can increase productivity at any point in the business journey.”
The Sage Business Cloud is now available to new and existing customers in the UK, US, and Canada, with further global roll out this year and next.
