Under the terms of the agreement, Sage HandiSoft will enable its customers with a fully integrated, complete practice in the Cloud using OBT’s Cloud technology infrastructure.
According to the company, it will provide organisations with the full application functionality of Sage HandiSoft along with Microsoft Exchange, Office, Lync and other business software applications.
Sage HandiSoft national sales and marketing manager, Gary Weisz, said it selected OBT to support its client-base as it had a track record in supporting professional services firms in the Cloud.
“The Cloud is a great way of delivering software and mobility and we’re now able to offer clients the opportunity to enhance enterprise application mobility and eliminate the pain and cost of maintaining an on premise IT platform which is typically a time consuming pursuit,” Weisz said.
OBT managing director and founder, Shane Muller, said partnering with Sage HandiSoft was a natural choice as practices can benefit from an industry tailored solution delivering Cloud services to the accounting sector.
“Firms can now have a single technology partner that relieves the burden IT can present to a business and focus on running their business and managing compliance rather than on co-ordinating their technology requirements.
“Additionally, it provides an ideal platform to incorporate unified communications, enabling the professional services market to communicate in a richer way with teams and clients,” he said.
