Sage launches online master-class for accountants

Sage creates an online accounting programme to help accountants grow their practice

A MASTERCLASS for Sage’s accountants in practice customers has been launched to help them understand how to use the IT giant’s online product, Sage One.

Users of the software, launched in January 2011, will receive marketing, sales and customer support from Sage on how to grown their practice using internet-based technology. The new initiative will help accountants and book-keepers to work more closely with their clients over the internet.

More than 41% of accountants said they hoped to offer online accountancy services in the next 12 months, according to Pulse research published earlier this year.

Nick Goode, head of Sage Online, said: “With a renewed focus on supporting small businesses and start-ups in the chancellor’s Budget, there is a tremendous opportunity for accountants and bookkeepers to support the emerging entrepreneurs.

“The Sage Online Accounting Programme has been specifically designed to help accountants and book-keepers tap into this trend and provide even more value to customers, however they want to work. By setting up with a SOAP accountant, clients can spend more time running their business and less time worrying about balancing their books, which is at the heart of the proposition.”
