PRESS RELEASE — ATLANTA, GA–(Marketwired – Feb 17, 2016) – Sage, a market leader in accounting, payroll and payments, today launched Sage Marketplace, a new global distribution platform for independent software vendors (ISVs) to showcase their Sage developer add-ons.
The “Sage Marketplace” is a single global site that showcases apps developed for Sage products and will allow ISVs to sell add-on components that are integrated with Sage global products, including Sage One and Sage Live. It can be viewed by all Sage customers, who can buy directly from the ISV partner.
This launch follows the global launch of the Sage Global Partner Program (GPP), a reimagined partner model providing world-class benefits and incentives to partners and supporting new customer acquisition and business growth for the growing Sage Global Product portfolio, including Sage One, Sage Live, Sage Impact and Sage X3.(ad}
Available now for all partners, the GPP introduced a simplified engagement model for all partners, including system integrators (SIs), resellers, value-added resellers (VARs), ISVs and developers.
Michael De Jongh, VP, Global ISV & Developer Program for Sage, comments: “This is just the beginning for the Sage Marketplace. Many ISVs are joining us to develop extensions to the Sage portfolio of online products and our customers are getting even more value from our global products, like Sage One and Sage Live, through new developer add-ons that create enriched functionality over and above the core product. This is a fantastic opportunity for ISVs to join our growing community and grow their business with Sage.”
Examples of add-ons already on the Sage Marketplace include cashflow support from Fundbox and e-commerce extensions from Magento and Prestashop.
