Safeguard Business Systems (UPIC: SAFE0003) has named SAGE its preferred provider of research, marketing and business management services.

In the agreement, SAGE will provide Safeguard network locations with special corporate pricing on select SAGE products and services. This includes the SAGE Total Access subscription, consisting of the SAGE Online product research and business management tool; as well as SAGE Web, the browser-based platform to access SAGE tools from any device with web access; and SAGE Mobile, the mobile application for iOS and Android devices. In addition, this partnership will include preferred pricing on many of the SAGE Website tools and services. SAGE will provide free webinars and other learning opportunities to help Safeguard network locations learn more about SAGE’s product offerings.

"We’re extremely excited to provide the best industry tools to help support Safeguard’s network of locations,” says Jarod Thorndike, director of strategic relations at SAGE. “We look forward to working with each location to help streamline the promotional products side of their business."

In addition, all Safeguard network locations subscribing to SAGE Total Access will receive a full membership to PPAI.

committed to providing our locations with the best technology and business management in the industry. This relationship with SAGE and PPAI will help give our locations access to the industry’s most powerful tools and provide the broadest range of promotional products and services to our customers.”
