ATLANTA (CBS46) -

The British business management software company Sage has announced it will be moving its headquarters to Atlanta.

Governor Nathan Deal announced the company decision on Friday.

The company says the move will create 400 new jobs over the next few years.

“Georgia is a hotbed for innovative global companies to locate their North American headquarters,” said Governor Deal. “Sage's decision to locate here speaks volumes about our pro-business climate and qualified workforce. At the same time, it demonstrates that our state's thriving technology scene remains at the forefront of the minds of global business leaders who are looking to remain competitive and grow their business in the U.S.”

The new company headquarters will be located in Midtown and is expected to open in the Fall of 2015.

The new jobs will be in sales and marketing, customer service and digital marketing.

The company already has a location in Lawrenceville and between the two facilities, Sage will have around 1,000 employees in Metro Atlanta.

Sage is the world's third-largest supplier of enterprise resource planning software and the largest supplier to small businesses, with millions of customers worldwide.
