Sage Embraces Developers with Payments API Portal

Sage, a leading accounting, payroll and payment system, has launched a developer portal that it hopes will accelerate "digital connectedness."

The Sage Payments Developers Portal provides API management and developer enablement (powered by Apigee). Software developers and Sage's ISV partners will be able to access API resources, share knowledge and promote completed integration solutions through a single interactive space.

"The Sage Payments Developer Portal proves our commitment to developing best-in-class payment technology that allows partners and developers integrate into Sage Payment Solutions and create a seamless payments workflow," said Joseph Smutz, Director of Product Integration at Sage.

Developers will be able to track, collect and analyze data as well as have the ability to define their own reporting metrics and drive awareness of completed integrations and promote apps within the community.

Gabby Colarusso, Senior Software Engineer at Fortress GB, a Sage ISV partner says, "The Payments.JS platform has removed all the complex logic making it quick and easy to use. The JavaScript API is simple to handle and gives us flexibility to integrate the technology to enrich our own customer facing platform. We have complete control when integrating Payments.JS, meaning we improve our platform without forfeiting style, functionality or usability.

"The heart of the Sage brand is built around the experience we provide our customers and partners; and with a fully integrated API portal, we'll see an exciting exchange of ideas -- undoubtedly fuelling the next generation of payment applications and programs."
