On February 18, SAGE (UPIC: SAGE) celebrated its 20th birthday with an employee reception at its Addison, Texas, offices. The company started in the promotional products industry in 1992 with the launch of its QuickCredit product.
“We are really excited to be celebrating such an historic event,” says David Natinsky, president of SAGE. “It’s hard to believe that it’s been 20 years, but when we think about what the industry was like and what technology was like back in 1992, you start to realize how much has changed in two decades.”
SAGE’s QuickCredit software is designed to save suppliers money when using dial-up credit services. However, the product never caught on, which led it to focus on the SAGE Information System research service. This has since evolved into the present-day SAGE Online offering. The company also offers mobile research services, order management, website and e-mail services, e-commerce solutions, marketing and advertising services, end-user catalogs, artwork services, payment processing, the MAPPS™ show, tradeshow management services and lead retrieval software.
