The hosted offerings in the SAN package for Sage Nonprofit Solutions are the first mid-market hosted solutions included as part of a Sage Accountants Network package. Although details have not been finalized, Sage North America CEO Pascal Houillon announced earlier this year that Sage will be offering hosted versions of many of its other popular accounting, enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), and human resource management solutions. When implemented, these hosted offerings will allow organizations and their leaders to access their licensed Sage products from anywhere at any time without having to maintain the hardware and software infrastructure. The hosted offerings also make it possible for organizations to scale up to add additional users for volunteers and temporary workers during major seasonal fundraising campaigns. Since the hosting provider maintains all data and applications in a secure, audited public data center, these temporary workers can work in temporary or remote locations, and do not have to be located in the same offices as the organization’s full time staff.
