Online payments now automatically reconciled into Sage One software
Sage has today announced the full integration of its’ core cloud-based products for small and medium-sized businesses - Sage Pay and Sage One - to ease online payments for retailers.
The new functionality allows merchants to sync online payment data from Sage Pay directly into Sage One - the online accounting solution from Sage, instead of manually inputting the information. This automation will help save time for the user, remove the risk of manual errors, ensure that their’ books are accurate, compliant and up-to-date and provide them with a more accurate appraisal of their financial situation.
Once connected, the Sage One system will automatically inform the user if there are any new Sage Pay transactions to import into the system every day, saving merchants time and easing the process of accounts reconciliation.
“The integrated solution means retailers – especially those in the SMB sector – can concentrate on running their businesses, minimising the time they need to spend on bookkeeping and administration,” said Simon Black, CEO at Sage Pay. “Enabling SMBs to focus on what matters is critical to their growth and success – and to the success of the UK economy. The improved integration between Sage One and Sage Pay is exactly the kind of streamlined, joined-up business process they need.”
The integration announcement follows a successful year for Sage, with the number of customers using a Sage core accounting system and a Sage payments solution rising to almost 14,000 in 2013, an increase of 42 per cent from 2012. Sage also recently announced a threefold increase in Sage One customers in the UK & Ireland, from 6,100 to 21,000 in the 12 months leading up to September 2013.
Lisa Ewens, Sage One Category Manager said: “The new and improved integration between Sage Pay and Sage One makes perfect sense for our users as it will enable them to spend less time on business administration and more on marketing and selling their products. The recent surge in Sage One customers suggests a growing demand for easy, online services in the start-up and small business community and we now have a truly connected system for them to receive and manage their payments.”
The integrated offering is automatically available to all customers who are using Sage Pay and Sage One and is simply turned on within their account ‘Settings’.
