Sage One–Canadian Edition targets Canadian SMBs

Sage North America has introduced Sage One–Canadian Edition, an online accounting and invoicing solution.

Sage One–Canadian Edition assists SMBs to bill and get paid for services they provide and track money coming in and going out of their business anytime and from anywhere.

Sage One is targeted at small businesses owners — sole proprietors, contractors, service-based businesses, and new and established businesses — looking for an easy-to-use solution that helps them invoice their customers and get paid quickly.

It provides a complete picture of the business: income, expenses and the status of their cash flow. The Canadian version of Sage One is fully English-French bilingual and will seamlessly track GST/HST and PST/QST on sales and purchases.

According to the 2014 Sage State of the Canadian Start-Up Survey — conducted in December 2013 and polling more than 500 Canadian small business owners — more than half of new Canadian start-ups went from business idea to launch in less than six months. Two-thirds of respondents were able to pay themselves in the first year, while approximately 30 per cent were hiring employees within the first two years of operation.

Bruce Croxon of CBC’s Dragons’ Den said: “To prepare for success, growing small businesses need to start thinking and acting with the disciplines of a big business. This means keeping track of the state of their business and using data to support the decisions they make on a daily basis.”

With Sage One, small business owners can easily create and send customized professional invoices, track income and expenses, pull in bank and credit card transactions straight from their bank, and, ultimately, better serve and gain the trust of their customer base.
