Sage Goes Mobile

Sage North America has announced the general availability of its new mobile solutions. Delivered through the new Sage Data Cloud, Sage Mobile Sales and Sage Mobile Service are currently available for download in Apple iTunes. These are in tune with Sage’s connected services strategy, enabling businesses to access applications on their local devices without disrupting the investments they have already made in on-premises software.
Sage Mobile Sales is a native iPad application that includes customer purchase history, current product availability, and an online product catalog to allow sales reps to process quotes and orders in the field, take payments, and collect signatures on their iPads. With Sage Mobile Service, dispatchers can use the Web portal to schedule work orders, view completed orders, and send invoices, while field service technicians can view detailed information such as previous work done, add details on parts used, and collect payment on the spot.
On the other hand, Sage Billing and Payment is an application that works with popular Web browsers. The subscription-based service accepts electronic payments and automates invoice delivery by sending e-mail invoices instead of mailing paper ones, which streamlines and automates the accounts receivable process. The service provides customers with an online self-service portal to make payments instead of placing calls to customer service or sales.
By developing the necessary mobile infrastructure and platform, Sage’s mobile solutions connect with select Sage enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems to allow them to consistently share data. Sage is also focused on native responsive design, which allows people to use the applications across different devices with a minimal learning curve.
As Sage continues building its mobile solutions, it will look to expand mobile functionality across products and markets to drive scale and volume. The vendor also plans to enable alliances and partners to participate in the Sage mobile ecosystem as well as enhance the existing infrastructure for a consistent global deployment.
