    crowdSPRING, the world’s #1 marketplace for crowdsourced logo design, web design and other types of graphic design, industrial design and writing services, and Sage North America today announced the finalists of a global competition to design a landing page that talks about Sage One, a cloud-based invoicing, accounting and collaboration tool for small businesses.

    Ten finalists have been selected and are available for voting at http://crowdspring.co/15bjum7. The top three entries will receive a total cash prize of $5,000: $3,500 for first place, $1,000 for second place, and $500 for third.

    Introduced in the U.S. in May 2012, Sage One helps entrepreneurs manage their income and expenses with a simple, easy-to-use online accounting solution that includes invoicing, project and task management and sharing features that streamline and automate manual, time-intensive business management processes. Integration with Sage Payment Solutions and PayPal was launched January 31, 2013. Users can now get paid faster by generating an invoice in Sage One that contains a link that allows their customers to immediately pay the invoice online with a credit card or PayPal account.

    “Sage One is designed to support entrepreneurs as they run their businesses, to help them get paid faster and focus on doing what they do best,” said Henry Benamram, general manager, Sage One. “Looking to crowdSPRING as a resource for fresh, creative thought while also supporting the small business and independent designer – it’s a natural fit for us.”
