Sage have posted what appears to be a starter list of third party services which connect to various Sage products. These Connected Services play a prominent role on almost every Sage product roadmap and seem likely to be a key part of adding value to your use of Sage products.
From what we can see the beauty of Connected Services is that there is no modification of the underlying Sage software. Rather than create an enhancement that then requires updating each time you load a new Sage version – these Connected Services will hook externally to your Sage data (with your permission).
This will allow for much simpler future upgrades and a potentially greater number of useful services to choose from.
