Inverness-based sfG Software has been awarded the prestigious Sage Business Partner accreditation. As the only IT company in the Highlands with this accreditation, sfG Software will now be able to sell, install and support the market-leading Sage software within their rapidly growing customer base.
Sage is the market leader in financial software and provides business management software to more than 800,000 businesses in the UK. This software ranges from accounts and payroll to forecasting and human resources.
This partnership means that sfG Software, already a Microsoft Competency Partner, offers customers in the Highlands a one-stop shop for IT support, software development and accounting systems support. Often the boundaries between an accounting system and the IT systems are blurred, so having a single supplier who can support all these systems is a significant benefit for businesses. sfG is now able to offer customers a complete Sage accounting solution from the front end software to the hardware and network infrastructure. Businesses will be able to have continuity of support without any areas left exposed.
Obtaining Sage Business Partner accreditation requires regular training and exams run by Sage and this ensures a high standard is maintained and software knowledge is always up to date. sfG Software will deliver the Sage support through its existing team of IT support engineers and also through an exclusive partnership with Andrew Callanan of Software-123. Andrew is a qualified accountant who has been delivering accounting solutions and support to businesses in the Highlands for 10 years. The combination of Andrew’s accountancy skills and sfG Software’s reputation for customer service will give businesses in the Highlands a unique benefit.
David Garvie, sfG’s Managing Director said: “This partnership is another demonstration of sfG Software’s determination to provide the Highlands with the quality and breadth of IT support and solutions that are expected in other parts of the UK.”
This partnership ensures that existing customers of sfG Software will now be able to have all their IT and accounting systems supported by one provider, and other businesses will no longer need to look outside the Highlands to find an IT support provider who has the expertise and support of a Sage Business Partner.
