Sage outlines vision for Africa

Anton van Heerden, SageJOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – SAGE, the global accounting software, has set out its vision for African businesses.

The announcements have been made at the Sage Summit 2016, held this week in Chicago, United States.

“In a time of seismic technological change and digital invention, our smart people are using the smartest technology to reinvent and simplify business accounting,” says Anton Van Heerden, EVP and Managing Director, Sage South and Southern Africa.

He says the company’s research teams were working on making concepts like the Internet of Things, machine learning, blockchain and data sciences into a reality for African businesses, accountants and partners.

“We are committed to helping African entrepreneurs exploit these game-changing technologies to win and grow.”

Van Heerden says Sage believes the voices and views of small and medium businesses are underrepresented in the corridors of power hence the company will be working hard to get the issues these businesses face onto the agenda for the continent’s economic leaders and decision makers.

“Addressing these challenges at the highest levels could help unleash the potential of Africa’s entrepreneurial wealth creators.”
