Sage Plc


Project Description

Sage provides business software, services and support to small and medium sized enterprises. Whilst Sage’s heritage is in the small business market, they also have the experience and expertise to meet the needs of specific industries and larger organisations.

Sage is listed on the London Stock Exchange and is a constituent of the FTSE 100 Index.

Sage are a global company with more than 6 million customers, over 13,300 employees and 30+ years of experience. However, despite Sage’s global reach they have built their success on understanding and meeting the needs of customers in their local markets. Therefore, the majority of Sage products and services are developed and supported locally. This ensures Sage provides a choice of high quality products and services which are relevant to their customers and use the most appropriate technology and are supported by local experts.

Sage was one of the early leaders to venture into Sustainability Reporting in 2006/2007. This leadership involved an ambitious plan to measure, report and reduce the Sage Corporate Carbon Footprint. Given the size and complexity of Sage’s operations, adopting an online carbon and sustainability reporting software solution was essential. In 2013, Sage decided that a more sophisticated solution which allowed for a wider scope of coverage, and capabilities was required.

Following a competitive procurement process of the leading Carbon, Energy and Sustainability Software Solutions on the market, Accuvio was selected.

Sage is directly impacted by the UK’s Mandatory Carbon / Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reporting legislation. Therefore it was necessary to acquire a solution which could not only cater to their UK CRC requirements, but instantly provide reports for Mandatory Carbon Reporting requirements. In addition to these legislative reporting demands, Sage needed software support to action ambitious plans to continue overall drive towards low carbon operations.

Key Reporting Drivers

  • Simultaneous Global and Country Specific Capability

“This software is much more than a reporting solution. Its powerful analytics gives us never before available insights into project performance, and our progress towards targets. With the interactive dashboards, we can monitor individual buildings and meters performance with a click. Simply superb.”
