A UK-based business accounting, payments and payroll software firm is to create a new customer business centre in Dublin to serve the European market, creating 300 jobs.

Sage, Europe's second largest technology company, makes a range of software products to help businesses with their accounts, payments and payroll.

The jobs will be in a range of areas including marketing, sales and services.

It says the rich technology talent pool in Dublin is one of the main attractions of locating the centre here.
