Sage launches new ISV marketplace
Launch follows global unveiling of the vendor’s Global Partner Programme
Sage, a maker of accounting, payroll and payments solutions, has launched, Sage Marketplace, a new global distribution platform for independent software vendors (ISVs) to showcase their Sage developer add-ons.
According to the vendor, the Sage Marketplace is a single global site that showcases all apps developed for Sage products and allows ISVs to sell add-on components which are integrated with Sage's global products including Sage One and Sage Live. The company said it can be viewed by all Sage customers, who can buy directly from the developing partner.
Sage said the launch follows the global launch of Sage's Global Partner Programme (GPP), a reimagined partner model which provides world-class benefits and incentives to partners and supporting new customer acquisition and business growth for its growing Global Product portfolio, including Sage One, Sage Live, Sage Impact and Sage X3.
Available now for all partners, the GPP introduced a simplified engagement model for all partners, including system integrators (SIs), resellers, vars, isv's and developers.
Michael De Jongh, vice president, Global ISV and Developer Programme, Sage, said: "This is just the beginning for the Sage Marketplace. Many ISVs are joining us to develop extensions to Sage's 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."
