Sage, the market leader in cloud business management solutions, has today announced several new strategic partnerships that will help small businesses and accountants stay in control of their business. The innovative apps are fully integrated with Sage Accounting and allow small businesses to remain compliant, stay organised, keep on top of payments, have full visibility of cash flow, as well as engage with their employees.
Sage and its partners are offering these integrated solutions to help customers perform at their best across finance and people management by relieving the burden of admin through automating processes, thereby freeing up time and generating insights to support planning and decision making. This is especially important against the backdrop of Covid-19 while small businesses are having to navigate frequent government restrictions, job retention schemes and changeable regulations that are impacting on their businesses.
The apps are made available to customers via Sage’s carefully curated marketplace of functionality-rich native-cloud apps that address specific industry needs.
The new Sage Accounting partner-developed apps now available on the Marketplace include:
Castaway makes it easy to create anything from simple budgets to complex forecasts to dynamic business models for single entities or consolidated groups.
Quote Onsite Complete Quote Management solution that allows businesses to create, send and track detailed and professional proposals that are automatically converted to invoices in Sage Accounting.
Castaway Advisor Edition Intelligent forecasting software that enables accountants to create value for clients by producing rich reports and dashboards.

Syft Analytics helps businesses understand financial data, create reports, forecast, track progress and benchmark performance.
“Syft via the Sage Marketplace has already become an essential part of my accounting toolkit. The Support Team helped me to complete a crucial set of Management Accounts for a Financier within hours of signing up. The subsequent on-boarding session was an eye-opener to the amazing capabilities of Syft.”
Rob Milne, Senior Financial Manager and Strategic Planner said, “As small business owners and accountants get more accustomed to remote working, they’re realising how critical cloud solutions are to ensuring their business survives and thrives. The Sage Marketplace is full of tried and tested apps which provide customers with cloud add-ons across a broad range of tasks and workflows for finance, payroll, and HR.
“Sage and its partners are committed to helping small business owners automate time-consuming processes, generating meaningful insights to enable better planning and decision making meaning they can focus on protecting their businesses from the current economic headwinds,” said Neal Watkins, EVP Small Business, Sage.
Customers will be able to take advantage of the integrations between new apps and Sage Accounting over the coming months. The launch is part of a continued wider effort to bring holistic industry-specific functionality to Sage customers via the Marketplace.
