Sage Payment Boss Helps Small Businesses Get Paid Anytime, Anywhere

Small Businesses With a Merchant Account and 3G Phone Can Get Paid Immediately With Sage Payment Boss

RICHMOND, BC -- (Marketwire) -- 08/04/10 -- Sage North America today announced Sage Payment Boss, a new mobile tool that allows small businesses to get paid anytime, anywhere, by accepting credit cards using a 3G enabled phone and a merchant account.

With Sage Payment Boss, small businesses can select Sage Payment Solutions or another merchant account provider, and all payments are verified on the spot, ensuring that small businesses get paid immediately. As a payment is processed, the system automatically sends an e-receipt to the payee once the transaction is complete, and provides the small business with a light customer management tool to capture basic customer information, like address, email, and phone number, keeping a handy history of transactions for easy viewing.

"Cash flow is a major issue and can be difficult to manage for small businesses," said Jamie Sutherland, vice president and general manager, Sage Simply Accounting. "Sage Payment Boss addresses the number one(1) issue facing small businesses today: getting paid, and with the convenience and flexibility of the Internet, doing it anywhere, at anytime, the way they want."

When used in conjunction with Sage Billing Boss, Sage Payment Boss helps small businesses to get paid immediately, tracking and managing their incoming cash flow in real time, monitoring their sales activities and reconciling their credit card transactions with their merchant accounts. Used together, Sage Payment Boss and Sage Billing Boss remove all paperwork related to sales tracking from the sales process, and allow small businesses to focus on selling, not completing paperwork.

"Small businesses need affordable solutions to help them to stay ahead of the curve -- especially when it comes to getting the bills out, getting paid, and managing customer relationships," said Laurie McCabe, industry analyst, partner and co-founder, SMB Group. "Solutions like Sage Payment Boss and Sage Billing Boss truly fit that bill. These solutions give small businesses all of these capabilities in an anytime, anywhere format -- whether on a desktop PC or via a smart phone -- at a fraction of the cost that larger businesses pay for the same capabilities. In fact, unlike some others in the space, Billing Boss is a free service, no matter how many customer accounts a business adds."

Users access Sage Payment Boss through a mobile browser, and all transactions are routed through Sage's secure servers to ensure that industry standards for data security are met, so small businesses can feel secure using Sage Payment Boss.

Sage Payment Boss is the newest Connected Service in the broad Sage portfolio of products and services supporting small to midsized businesses worldwide.

Pricing and Availability
Sage Payment Boss is only available at www.sagespark.com, and is $9.95 a month -- a fraction of the cost of a terminal rental, providing ongoing cost savings by processing transactions from a mobile device. Small businesses can access Sage Billing Boss via www.sagespark.com as well.
