John Donnelly

John spent over 9 years working at Sage, starting as a Technical Support Advisor for Sage 50 and Instant before moving on to be Developer Services Manager and, finally, Senior Analyst Programmer.

John left Sage at the end of 2004 to join Tradebox as Research & Development Director where he was lead developer of the highly successful, Sage award winning, Tradebox Finance Manager product which links a multitude of online sales platforms (including eBay, Amazon and PayPal) with Sage Instant and Sage 50.

During this time with Tradebox, John undertook work for companies such as Sage, Microsoft and BP as well as a number of Sage Business Partners and continues to develop the Tradebox range of products. Whilst no longer a Director of Tradebox, John remains the lead developer of the Tradebox range of products.

As a result of years of involvement with Sage, John is a well known figure in the Sage Business Partner and Sage Developer communities and provides free support for Sage users as a Moderator on SageForum and is a well know contributor on Sage matters on the UK Business Forums and Accounting Web.

John has an unsurpassed knowledge of Sage Instant, Sage 50 and, in particular, the underlying databases and was one of the first developers in the UK to be awarded Certified Developer status for Sage 50.
