What is Sage and who uses it?

04 March 2014

Sage is a hugely popular series of software used by businesses of all sizes. An estimated 800,000 businesses in the UK use Sage, and as a result, a qualification in the software can be a powerful tool.

Sage primarily provides software for management of finances, HR and payroll, however they also offer manufacturing, stock management and retail support software. This makes Sage hugely popular amongst managerial staff from all sectors and in particular, new small business owners.

Sage cuts out the need for a costly accountant or bookkeeper - a large expense when your business is just starting up - and allows owners to do their accounts themselves, keeping track of expenses, invoices and VAT in a simple and organised manner. Simple once you know how to use it, Sage not only makes keeping track of finances easy, but also helps new (and possibly inexperienced) business owners keep their records organised.

However the variety of services which Sage offers means that it is not only small business who benefit. Sage software is also used by a number of different departments in some of the largest businesses in the UK. The simplicity and efficiency of its accounts software means that it is often utilised by those working in the finance or HR department of large companies and organisations. It is also used by those in manufacturing or customer relationship management to organise their time and resources.

Total Training Solutions offer qualifications in a range of Sage software, specifically Sage 50 Accounts, Forecasting and Payroll, Sage Instant Accounts and Sage ACT! This means that whether you’re looking to start your own business and want to learn how to manage your own finances effectively, or whether you want an extra qualification to help you advance in your sector, we have a course for you.

Sage is constantly growing and evolving, meaning it is used by single person start-ups, finance giants and everyone in between. The level of support offered by Sage, and the fact that it is a cloud-based system means that you’ll never be left behind.
