Sage Launches Partner Cloud Program to Accelerate Cloud Migration
Sage Group has announced its Sage Partner Cloud Program in the U.S. and Canada, which will enable partners to deploy and customize customers’ Sage 300 product online, from anywhere, according to a statement released by the company. The Partner Cloud Program will better enable partners to help accelerate customers’ cloud migrations and digital transformation initiatives, according to the statement.
Sage 300 is the cloud business management software company’s ERP application aimed at helping SMBs with enterprise management, including finances, inventory, operations and accounting, according to the company.
Sage Partner Cloud Program Enables Remote Work
Sage Partner Cloud will optimize Sage customers’ ability to work remotely while controlling costs, on both a short- and long-term basis. It is especially useful as a digital solution for businesses that are re-evaluating the ways in which they manage in the COVID-19 economy, the company said in the statement.
The Sage Partner Cloud also helps partners deploy Sage 300 more quickly on the Microsoft Azure cloud, enabling them to customize the deployment and manage ISV add-ons to meet the customer’s unique needs, the company said. In some cases, the solution can be deployed in under an hour, the company said.
According to the statement, Sage Partner Cloud is powered by the Sage Provisioning Portal, a web portal through which partners can automate administration of their hosted customer base to simplify overhead, limit disruption and save time.
Partners can use the Cloud to provide integrations with other applications and customizations to create bespoke business management solutions that support customers’ exact needs, according to the statement.
In addition, the Sage Partner Cloud leverages Microsoft Azure security for reliable data protection, the company said.
Sage Partner Cloud and the Provisioning Portal will be available in other markets in coming months.
