Sage and Revolut partner to hand back three weeks of admin time to small business owners
Sage , a market leader in cloud business management solutions , has collaborated with Revolut to add another seamless account integration to its Sage Accounting software for small businesses .
On average , small businesses have spent 15 working days this year rekeying payments , reconciling their business accounts and correcting errors . Sage and Revolut Business customers can now automatically reconcile their transactions to match their accounts in seconds . With this automation , business owners no longer have to trawl through boxes of receipts , sift through statements or ‘ guesstimate ’ cash flow positions . “ Never have businesses needed time relief more . Nobody started a business to reconcile their books every month ,” says Neal Watkins , EVP Small Business Segment , Sage .
“ Small businesses will no longer need to process receipts and bank statements manually . In 2020 the average business has spent three working weeks on such tasks . That ’ s unacceptable when there is cloud technology that automates repetitive manual tasks so that the nation ’ s small businesses can spend time on surviving , growing and thriving . Hence why this collaboration with Revolut is so important ; we look forward to supporting our joint customers and helping them operate more seamlessly .”
