Sage is hosting a series of seminars in March, with consultant Gordon Gilchrist from the 2020 Consulting Group, to demonstrate to accountants how they can use the latest technology to improve their profits and free up their time. The practice efficiency seminars will focus on the need for accountancy practices to re-evaluate the way in which they operate in order to compete and survive in the long-term, and how Sage can help to increase the efficiency of their practices, maximise their profits and offer invaluable advice on:

- Understanding what clients will pay for.
- How to give clients what they want and make money from it.
- Understanding how to reward and involve staff.
- Maximising the use of IT.
- Generating new fees from clients.
- Cross selling techniques that work.
- How to increase chargeable hours by 25%.

Jerry Luckett, general manager of Sage's Accountants Division, said: "These seminars illustrate our commitment to providing active support for accountants. They are also an ideal opportunity for accountants to meet with Gordon Gilchrist, who is a well-recognised and accomplished speaker at conferences and seminars throughout the UK. He also provides consulting services to 500 individual firms in the area of management, marketing and strategic planning.

"By working closely with our nationwide network of Accountant Centres and people like Gordon, who are dedicated to the specific requirements of accountants in practice, we are able to demonstrate the strength of the Sage
