Sage Brand Changes—How the New Names Impact You and Your Business

Republished from the Sage North America website

The year 2011 marks the thirtieth year that Sage has been providing market-leading business management software and services to small and midsized businesses. Throughout our history, our commitment to customers has been at the center of everything we do. It is a commitment that has helped make Sage a recognized global leader in supplying business management solutions to small and midsized businesses like yours, and it is a commitment that grows each day in the way we serve you, as we deliver a growing portfolio of products and services to help make your business life easier.

Sage will be extending that commitment further in 2012 with enhanced products, new services, and productivity-enhancing features such as Sage Advisor that help you make the most of your software investment. One of the most visible elements will be the introduction of new names for many of our products that will make clear which Sage products are most appropriate to complement the Sage solutions you are using today, and which may be available to support your business as it grows.

What’s changing

In 2012 the names of many of our core accounting and ERP lines, including those designed for nonprofits and the construction industry, will be changing. These products will be identified with a numbering approach where higher numbers denote increasing levels of product capability or sophistication. Our product numbering sets will include Sage 50, Sage 100, Sage 300, and Sage 500.

However, these changes are more than in name alone. Each product family will offer integration to common business solutions such as CRM, Fixed Assets, HRMS, and Payroll. Sage Connected Services provide additional capabilities, including online payment processing, mobile access, and data security, while product support through Sage Business Care and Sage Advisor technology ensure you get the most from your Sage investment.

What's staying the same

Sage is still the same company at heart. We remain fully committed to advancing our products—those whose names are changing as well as those that retain their familiar names—to help make your business life easier. And we remain fully committed to delivering a superior customer experience when you call on the phone, work with us through the web, and use our products on a daily basis.
