"We are thrilled to have Sage View and Sage Impact recognized for their innovation in the accounting profession," said Jennifer Warawa, EVP of product marketing at Sage. "These solutions help accountants move beyond providing the standard tax and compliance work and become the strategic advisor their clients need them to be."

"Accounting professionals are increasingly reliant on technologies to help them achieve greater control over financial data and for them to offer more beneficial advisory services," said Isaac M. O'Bannon, managing editor of CPA Practice Advisor. "Sage View and Sage Impact are giving accountants more accurate data, as well as the tools to help their small business clients be more successful."

Sage View helps improve efficiency, productivity and profitability for both accountants and their clients. It easily connects to Sage or other accounting solutions and provides accounting professionals with dashboards, Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), reports and alerts for multiple clients in one place, with data uploaded automatically daily. It's accessible anytime, anywhere and can be customized based on their personal preferences and the needs of their clients.

Sage Impact allows accounting professionals to access a variety of apps and tools, including Sage One Accountant Edition, Sage View, email and calendar, educational content, news and Twitter feeds, online business community forums, quick links to the applications and resources they use most, and customer support. It helps accountants save time, be more efficient, and grow their practice while increasing engagement with and adding more value to their clients.

The Tax & Accounting Technology Innovation Awards honor new or recently enhanced technologies that benefit tax and accounting professionals and their clients through improved workflow, increased accessibility, enhanced collaboration or other means. Winners and finalists of the Innovation Awards are selected by CPA Practice Advisor's editorial board and awards committee, a group of accounting thought leaders and professionals from across the country.

The awards were presented on Wednesday, June 1, by CPA Practice Advisor during a reception and ceremony at the California Accounting and Business Show and Conference at the LAX Hilton in Los Angeles.
