Sage recently announced a global distribution platform called the Sage Marketplace to help Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) sell add on components integrated with Sage Global Products, beginning with Sage One and Sage Live.
The launch of the Sage Marketplace follows the global launch of the Sage Global Partner Program (GPP). Available now for all partners, the GPP introduced a simplified engagement model for all partners, including system integrators (SIs), resellers, value-added resellers (VARs), Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) and developers.
Sage Marketplace Explained
The Sage Marketplace is a single site that showcases partners and apps developed for Sage Global Products. It will act as an extended solution showroom, showcasing 3rd-party add-ons that are easily integrated with Sage global products. While currently only offering solutions fit for Sage One and Sage Live, the marketplace will continue to grow and can be viewed by all Sage customers.
Vendors join the Global Partner Program and the Sage Marketplace space as an ISV or an SI. ISVs wishing to join need to integrate to a Sage Global Product, beginning with Sage One or Sage Live, and then request to be listed in the marketplace. All Sage customers are able to browse the available add ons, choose want and buy from the partner.
Sage Marketplace Partners
There are many great companies that can help make life as a business owner much easier and many more are joining the list. Here are just a few:

Sage Marketplace Updates
As the ISV and SI list grows, Sage will be constantly updating the features and offering of the marketplace. The ability to browse by product, functionality, and country will all be coming soon and we are confident many more exciting features will be integrated as the GPP gains momentum.
In a recent press release, Michael De Jongh, VP, Global ISV & Developer Program for Sage voiced his enthusiasm:
“This is just the beginning for the Sage Marketplace. Many ISVs are joining us to develop extensions to the Sage portfolio of online products and our customers are getting even more value from our global products, like Sage One and Sage Live, through new developer add-ons that create enriched functionality over and above the core product. This is a fantastic opportunity for ISVs to join our growing community and grow their business with Sage.”
