Sage and Square® partner to help small businesses take more control of their finances
Sage, the leader in accounting, financial, HR and payroll
technology for small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs), and Square,
the global payments technology provider, today announce a new
partnership, focused on helping small businesses work smarter and
save time, freeing them up to grow their businesses.
The partnership allows Sage Accounting and Square’s point of
sale (POS) software to integrate, and it is now live in Canada, the
UK and Ireland. It means customers using both products can do
business and take payments anywhere – in-person, online or over the
phone. Sales data then flows seamlessly into Sage Accounting,
keeping retailers’ books up-to-date and accurate.
For accountants managing small businesses’ books, the
integration makes it easier to see and easily access clients’
latest financial data, with transactions synced into Sage
“As digital payment methods increase in popularity among
consumers, it’s critical for small businesses to be able to process
cashless transactions with ease,” said Mark Hickman, Managing
Director, Sage Canada. “The Sage and Square partnership will help
Canadian retailers stay on top of their sales transactions, get
paid with confidence, and know their books are covered with Sage
“When the world went online during the pandemic, technology
helped businesses survive,” said Jason Lalor, Executive Director at
Square Europe. “One of the lasting benefits we’ve seen for
businesses, was the shift to digital ways of working and selling.
This switch is providing solutions to challenges across the
professional services sector by allowing businesses to be agile.
Our sellers are continuously finding new and more efficient ways of
working that prioritize expertise, implementing technology, and
setting their business apart in an increasingly competitive
landscape. We’re excited to see how this partnership with Sage
strengthens SMB growth.”
