Sage announces global accountant partner programme

SAGE has launched a global accountant partner programme, with the aim of providing a single, streamlined framework for accountants that will simplify the relationship of firms partnering with the software vendor in every country.

Available immediately in English for Sage global products, additional languages and the full product portfolio will be rolled out in October 2016.

Based on a tiered programme, the global accountant partner programme provides streamlined services to its accountant partners with benefits and including a free to join, peer-led community of accountant partners with access to the full suite of Sage products; educational resources provided by accounting professionals; marketing consultancy and funding to assist with practice transformation and growth and full accreditation for staff and practice as experts of Sage products.

Sage executive vice president for partnerships & alliances Alan Laing said: “In partnership the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. At Sage we delight in supporting our accounting partners from around the globe to transform and grow their practices. Importantly, this program is designed by and for accountants to both bring real value to all of our partners, and to help them deliver inspiring services to their clients.”

Partner programmes have been a long-running area of interest for software vendors. In 2006, Microsoft planned to launch its accountants scheme, Professional Accounting Network (PAN), in the UK. The move promoted software providers to improve their accountants’ partnership networks. Four of the major accounting software vendors ­ Sage, Iris, MYOB and Intuit ­all upgraded their accounting partnership schemes at the time.
