Jody Padar, CPA, MST, principal of New Vision CPA Group and author of The Radical CPA: New Rules for the Future-Ready Firm is partnering with Donal de Paor and the team at Veltig, a salesforce solution consulting and implementation partner to support Sage Live in the market.  

The kick off will take place on March 24, during the Salesforce World Tour at Hyatt McCormick Place in Chicago. Both will be speaking on a panel entitled, "The Top Challenges with Business Growth." The panel will take place at 4PM CDT and will be moderated by Jennifer Warawa, VP product marketing, Sage Live.

Sage Live is a cloud-based accounting solution built on the Salesforce1 platform designed to break down virtual walls between back-and front-office IT systems. An integrated accounting platform that provides one real-time source of information, Sage Live provides business owners a single view of customer, finance, payroll and accounting data in one place, rather than being stored and managed in separate front- and back-office systems. 

With the addition of the Salesforce data the business owner will have access to deep analytic and reporting tools, live feeds, prospective forecasts, and other in the moment business intelligence.  

"I'm excited to be involved in this partnership with Veltig, as I think it will really bring a holistic perspective to Sage Live customers," Padar said. "It's an unparalleled level of expertise to have Salesforce architects and accountants working together! We describe it as front office operational experts meets back office financial data experts. It's pretty cool and unique for a vendor to be doing something like this." 

"The combination of Veltig's Salesforce expertise and encyclopedic knowledge of products on the Salesforce app exchange, together with Jody's radical expertise will give Sage Live customers freedom like they've never seen before," said de Paor. "Sage Live has not only transformed Veltig's operations but given us a valuable new tool to extend our customers' ability to leverage the Salesforce platform."
