Sage View Enables Accountants to Deepen Client Relationships with High-Value Advice / Business Intelligence - Analytics

Sage North America, a leading provider of business management software and services to small and medium-sized businesses, today announced the launch of Sage View, a cloud-based solution designed for accountants to easily monitor client performance and financial health.
In a time when the accounting profession continues to shift in the way accountants work with clients, particularly as it relates to the changing needs of these small and medium-sized businesses, Sage View empowers accountants to see, understand, and take action on client data using key performance indicators (KPIs) and reports. Turning numbers into insights and advice deepens the relationship between the accountant and client, positioning the accountant as a client’s most valued and trusted financial advisor.
Sage View allows an accountant to track client performance, accessing key client data from multiple accounting solutions in one place, quickly, easily, and securely. Further insight and prioritization of follow-up or action items is available with drill-down capabilities. Because accountants like to look at information in different ways, Sage View offers customization opportunities within screens, reports, and KPIs. Sage View can be implemented with the accountant’s current portfolio of solutions, including Sage One—U.S. Edition and Sage 50 Accounting—U.S. Edition.
“Sage understands that accountants are facing a turning point; either they innovate within their firms or run the risk of becoming irrelevant,” said Jennifer Warawa, vice president and general manager, Sage Accountant Solutions. “One way accountants can better serve their clients is with real-time data, which is why we’re introducing Sage View. This is a unique solution to the marketplace that will give accountants the knowledge they need to advise clients, all in real time and working with their current portfolio of accounting solutions.”
“Since early 2000, I have been on a quest to find a tool that would facilitate the kind of meaningful dialogue my clients crave. I needed a way to bring financial information to life, to make it relevant,” said Geni Whitehouse, CPA.CITP, CSPM and countess of communication, Brotemarkle, Davis & Co. LLP. “I have found tools that get me halfway there by creating nice visuals, interesting ratios, cool benchmarks, but it is the collaborative real-time conversation that I have been desperate to have. With this solution, Sage is delivering the holy grail for me and more importantly, my clients.”
Sage View is now available to accountants starting at $79/month. For more information, including how to get started, please visit:na.sage.com/sageview
