In 1981, David Goldman founded Sage. He worked with a team of Newcastle University students in the UK to develop software to automate his business —and realized other businesses could benefit from this too. In 1998, Sage came to North America with the acquisition of leading desktop accounting software, Peachtree.
Today, Sage has 13,000 employees and serves over three million customers in 23 countries across mainland Europe, Africa, Australia, Asia, and Latin America. In 2017, Sage acquired Intacct and Fairsail.

Example industries or business types include: Financial Services, franchise, hospitality and entertainment, nonprofit or NGO organizations, professional services firms and companies that offer products through subscription or SaaS.
