UPS and Sage to provide supply chain cloud services to companies
Logistics giant UPS and cloud business solutions expert Sage have teamed up to offer small businesses a single, real-time source of customer and order data to simplify financial management and shipment processing with Sage Business Cloud.
Sage Business Cloud offers a cloud financial management solution, built on the Salesforce platform, to help businesses integrate accounting with shipping.
With UPS as the only carrier integrated on the platform, small-to-medium sized businesses can leverage Sage Business Cloud to get ahead of competitors by gaining better insight into business profitability.
The Sage Business Cloud integration with UPS is available for customers in the U.K., U.S., and Canada with plans to expand in other major markets in 2018.
“We are committed to delivering cloud business solutions that are easy to use, support a company's needs as they change and evolve, and ensure long-term customer success,” said Nancy Harris, Executive Vice President and Managing Director of Sage North America.
“We are very excited to collaborate with a logistics giant whose global headquarters is located right around the corner from our North America headquarters in Atlanta. UPS is a valued customer, and we're honoured to be their strategic partner of choice for offering clients a higher tier of service.”
Jerome Roberts, VP, UPS Global Product Innovation: “By embedding UPS, Sage customers will get the breadth and reliability of UPS's services to every address in North America and Europe, while easily managing all financial and shipping functions in one platform.
“UPS and Sage share a passion to empower small businesses to thrive in a global marketplace.”
