Sage launches on iPhone

SOFTWARE GIANT SAGE has launched its most popular accountancy product on Apple’s iPhone.

Sage’s latest product, 50 Accounts 2012, includes Sage 50 Accounts Mobile which can be downloaded through iTunes and accessed through iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

However, it will not be available on other mobile devices such as BlackBerry and Android-based phones until later this year.

The software includes four previous iterations of the program, which allows users to view customer data from older editions of Sage 50. Formerly, an accountant would have needed the same version of the product as their customer to view their information.

“Businesses today demand access to accurate, up to date information whether they are in the office or on the road. The development of Sage 50 Accounts Mobile has been fuelled both by the growth in smartphone adoption and an increase in demand for mobile business applications from across our customer base,” said Geoff Phillips, product manager for connected services in Sage’s small business division.


Sage 50 Accounts 2012 is now available on Blackberry. The company hopes to make the product available for android phones later this year.
