E-practice scheme launched by Sage
Sage has launched an initiative to help accountants and their clients take full advantage of the business opportunities offered by the internet.
The e-practice scheme will be open initially to Sage?s Accountants Club which boasts over 5,000 members.
In order to be recognised as a ‘Sage e-practice’, accountants will need to demonstrate that they can offer their clients relevant internet services, information and support.
Gavin May, general manager of Sage?s Professional Accountants Division, comments: ‘As more and more small businesses embrace e-commerce, they will look to professionals who can offer them the necessary advice and support.
‘By introducing the e-practice scheme to accountants, we can work together to demystify the internet for both them and their clients. Formal recognition as an e-practice will hopefully encourage new clients and persuade existing clients to consider the internet as an invaluable business tool.’
