Sage seeks developers to swell ISV numbers

Sage has outlined plans to recruit more independent software developers as part of plans to expand its developer community significantly into 2013

Sage is on the hunt to recruit more developers to extend the number of solutions that are being created around its software.

The vendor already has 900 developers on board but is launching a programme to grow that number next year and is putting the tools and support it has on offer in the shop window.

Those singing up can develop for the micro market, small business or mid-market, or potentially all three and can get access to kits, testing and demo resources and access to a sizeable Sage customer base.
