Swoop, a FinTech company specializing in funding solutions, and Sage, an expert in accounting, financial, HR, and payroll technology, have partnered to help businesses and accountants access a wide range of funding opportunities.
The partnership will also help identify opportunities to reduce business costs in areas such as energy, banking, and foreign exchange.
