Sage announces the availability of Sage One UK in the Google Apps Marketplace where customers can subscribe (after a 30 day trial) from 5 GBP per month.
During Sage Summit 2012 Sage North America mentioned that they’d be offering retail sales of their Sage One product through unspecified retail outlets in America. It’s unknown whether the North American version of Sage One will also be offered through the Marketplace as well.
In their announcement Sage indicated that they were one of the first accounting applications in the Google Apps Marketplace – although there are presently 70 other applications – including Wave and Xero – sharing the same Accounting & Finance category.
There are no details on how – if at all – the Sage One UK service will integrate to Google Apps thought the company indicates they are talking with Google about possible integrations.
Some services listed in the Google Marketplace have slim integration other than the ability to add themselves to a Google Apps user’s menu for easier launching of the service (Example: Freshbooks) however a listing in the Google Apps Marketplace seems like a great way for Sage to reach out to startup businesses..
