Sage and Fairsail  partnership will enable mid-size enterprise businesses to access a modern, cloud-first generation of integrated applications to seamlessly manage their business and people.

Sage, the market leader for integrated accounting, payroll and payment systems,  has announced a significant expansion of its partnership with Fairsail, a leading Human Capital Management cloud provider, built on the Salesforce1 Platform.

Fairsail will become the cloud HCM platform of choice to accompany Sage’s X3 Business Management Solution which serves mid-size enterprise businesses worldwide. Sage X3 and Fairsail products will work together to seamlessly provide companies with better processes to manage financials, supply chain, payroll, workforce and talent management, all in the cloud. This will be available to customers in the U.K. and U.S. initially, with further global roll out to follow.

Sage will also implement the Fairsail  solution internally as its global core HCM solution. This will provide its colleagues with state of the art HR management to further enhance its workforce experience. Sandra Campopiano, Chief People Officer at Sage said “I am delighted to be rolling out the Fairsail solution in-house to our 13,000 colleagues, our enviable employer brand relies on us providing the best to our people – I believe this delivers on our vision”

Alan Laing, EVP of Partnerships and Alliances said “As part of our ever expanding network of partnerships and alliances, we are very excited to further develop our relationship with Fairsail. We are committed to providing customers with the new tools they need to compete and grow in today’s global, digital economy. This complementary powerhouse of business management and HCM solutions will enable our customers to gain a competitive advantage.”

“We are delighted to partner further with Sage, the world’s leading software providers for small and medium businesses. The Fairsail cloud HR solution brings significant benefits to customers quickly, enabling businesses to remain agile and responsive,” said Adam Hale, Fairsail CEO. “This investment will allow us to grow our customer success, product innovation and our fabulous team globally.”

As part of the strengthened relationship, Sage will also make a minority investment and take a seat on the board. This signals a strong commitment from Sage to make the partnership a success and allows Fairsail to continue to invest in its product, go-to-market and customer for life capabilities worldwide.

As alliance partners, Sage is a sponsor of the Salesforce World Tour London on 19 May. Salesforce and Fairsail will be present at Sage Summit, the world’s largest gathering of entrepreneurs and leaders of small and medium businesses, taking place in Chicago, IL, on July 25-28.
