GoCardless partners with Sage

Brought to you by GoCardless

GoCardless has announced a partnership with Sage, the market leader for integrated accounting, payroll and payment systems.

The new integration will allow Sage customers to tap into the previously hard to access Direct Debit system, with the ability to automate payments in both the UK and Europe. Sage customers can now link their existing accounting software directly with GoCardless, allowing them to get paid on time with Direct Debit while also providing automate reconciliation of payments.

The partnership will help more business owners get paid on time. Moreover, it will reduce admin time associated with payments by automating back-office functions. This automation will free up time for business owners, removing the need to chase late paying customers.

Sage has already expressed its plans to expand the GoCardless integration to additional products and markets in the future.

“In today’s fast moving world, any way to streamline processes and increase efficiency can give companies a serious competitive advantage, said CEO, Hiroki Takeuchi. “Through this partnership with Sage, we look forward to helping thousands more businesses save time and money, letting them focus on growing their business.

Seamus Smith, EVP of Global Payments and Banking at Sage, said: “Our partnership with GoCardless provides another great solution to help achieve our mission: making admin invisible for our customers.

“With the new integration, customers can easily access and set-up Direct Debit payments in their Sage software, giving them back valuable time to focus on growth. Combined with our e-invoicing and ‘Pay Now’ button functionality, Sage is uniquely positioned to help customers get paid faster in a way that suits their business.”

 “This is great news for businesses like ours that run accounts on Sage and collect payments with GoCardless. Anything that enables us to increase efficiency and cut costs allows us to deliver an even better experience for customers,” said Mike Bibby of Radium Security Systems.
