LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwired) -- 07/28/14 -- Sage Summit 2014 -- With the number of Canadian small businesses consistently growing,(1) Sage North America -- leading provider of business management software and services to small and midsized businesses in Canada for more than 30 years -- announced today key strategic partnerships with several leading Canadian brands as part of its ongoing commitment to support small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) in Canada.
"With more than two million small and medium-sized businesses in Canada employing more than 10 million individuals, they truly are the backbone of our economy. Sage has a strong Canadian heritage and has been supporting small and medium-sized businesses for more than 30 years," said Nancy Harris, Sage North America senior vice president and general manager, Canada. "Through our strategic partnerships with some of the country's leading brands, we are working together to provide product and service offerings and drive business conversations that will further support Canadian businesses so they can focus on growth and thrive now and into the future."
During the past six months, Sage has worked diligently to identify and develop new strategic partnerships that benefit SMBs, making it easier for them to access solutions that will help them run their business more efficiently while helping to keep costs down. These new strategic alliances range from providing business guidance to female entrepreneurs to developing and delivering integrated solutions, but all have one thing in common: Sage wants to help SMBs move their business forward and succeed.
Sage has engaged two leading female entrepreneur groups in the country: Women in Biz Network and Mompreneur®. Sage will be an active contributor to the conversation among these two socially and digitally active networks by providing thought leadership content to their members and being a valuable supporter of this growing group of female entrepreneurs.
"Women in Biz Network is a very close knit community of female entrepreneurs, and our goal is to help them confidently grow their businesses in a smart, measurable and sustainable way," said Leigh Mitchell, founder of Women in Biz Network. "WIBN only partners with companies that share similar values. Sage has shown through its years of experience that it not only understands the challenges that female entrepreneurs face, but it actively wants to help them succeed."
Through a strategic alliance, Sage and Moneris, Canada's largest payment processor, will work together to deliver an integrated payment solution. Canadian businesses will be able to streamline their payment processes by seamlessly connecting Sage accounting and ERP applications with Moneris' debit and credit card payment processing technology. The integrated payment solution will simplify the way small and medium-sized businesses manage their payment processes by consolidating all payment activities through one platform.
Sage has also partnered with Canada Post's VentureOne and MasterCard Canada's Easy Savings® programs, both of which offer small businesses access to a host of solutions to help them grow their business while keeping their costs down. Sage 50 Accounting-Canadian Edition and Sage One Accounting-Canadian Edition are included in the suite of small business accounting solutions available to Canada Post VentureOne and MasterCard Canada Easy Savings members.
To provide an array of services and offerings to help make business life easier, Sage has partnered with other Canadian brands including Manulife, Toshiba, Visa and American Express Canada.

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...
