Who Are Sage?

Sage is one of the world’s leading accounting programmes, and providers of enterprise resource planning (ERP) software. The main software solutions Sage offers are Accounting, Human Resource Management and Payroll.

Sage began in Newcastle in 1981 as the brainchild of David Goldman, owner of a printing business. He wanted to automate the accounting processes, create quotes quickly and keep track of his accounts – and with the help of Newcastle University students, and Dr Paul Muller, a computer expert who worked with NASA, Sage was born.
