Leading global provider of accounting solutions partners with global accounting professional body to develop accounting skills in Nigeria. Sage the market and technology leader for cloud accounting, people & payroll, and payment systems, today announced that they have signed a partnership agreement with the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) in Nigeria.
This partnership will see the organisations work together to provide training and skills development opportunities to finance and accounting professionals. They will also promote each other’s brands to – and share information with – their respective communities.
Says Magnus Nmonwu Regional Director for Sage in West Africa: “We are delighted to cooperate with ACCA to develop skills in the finance and accounting arena – including the student members of the ACCA. We believe that there is a great deal we can do to add value for ACCA members in the region. Our wide network of resellers and partners are at hand to provide ACCA members and other Nigerian customers with the advice they need to grow their businesses.”
ACCA will integrate Sage learning materials into certificates and qualifications as relevant, helping to build capabilities among ACCA members and partner institutions. The partnership will kick-off with an event in November where Sage will be introducing Sage X3 to ACCA members within the enterprise space.
Tom Isibor, Country Head, ACCA, says: “We are constantly building new partnerships that increase the capacity of our students and members, with a focus on being agile, responsive and innovative to meet their needs and aspirations in a digital world.
“Our partnership with Sage will help us to support people and organisations in their holistic personal and business growth. The knowledge and training from this platform will ensure that they use future-proof IT in a manner that supports their operations and stakeholder interactions as their businesses grow.”
