Two Important Things Sage Users Need To Know
Sage is making some changes to their software, and you might be affected. Don’t worry, we’ve got the skinny on everything you need to know in this blog post.
Switching To Sage 300Cloud? Do It Before September 28, 2018.
The parity pricing and “$0 Migrations” offer introduced back in January 2018 (for renewal customers in the U.S.) will expire on September 28, 2018. After that, migrations from Sage 300 “Classic” (perpetual license) to Sage 300Cloud (subscription license) will revert to standard pricing.
Unsure of the difference between Sage 300 and Sage 300Cloud? Check out this blog post and video from Beth McNally to learn everything you need to know in less than five minutes.
With the parity pricing and “$0 Migrations” promotional offer, you can migrate to Sage 300Cloud at the time of your renewal for no more than the cost of your current Sage Business Care plan (or use $0 migration transactions where applicable).
Added benefits of Sage 300Cloud versus “classic” Sage 300 may include:
- Modernized web‐based interface
- Enhanced notes capabilities
- Sage Intelligence report manager and designer
- Sage AP Automation
- Sage Inventory Advisor basics
- Sage eCommerce
- Sage CRM
- Other modules and product enhancements available only for Sage 300Cloud
Sage 300 Online Is Going Into Retirement.
Sage announced that the old RDS version of Sage 300 Online is being retired on December 31, 2018. The primary reason for the retirement is that the current version of
Sage 300 Online is based on older technology with limited functionality. Customers using the old Sage 300 Online platform will need to migrate to a different option before December 31. The most obvious migration for current users of the Sage 300 Online RDS version will be to move the new Sage 300 Online (SEOS) product. Read on to learn more…
In conjunction with the retirement announcement of the old version, a completely new and re‐imagined Sage 300 Online (SEOS) product is under development and expected to be available sometime in Q4 2018.
The new version of Sage 300 Online is hosted on Microsoft Azure and utilizes an HTML5 tool that renders a brand new user interface for any browser. It will also feature new modules that support multi‐company and GL consolidations.
Sage is planning to provide access to two third party products, Orchid EFT and Wellspring PrintBoss, following completion of a security review. It all adds up to a brand new Sage 300 Online that delivers a much improved customer experience through better security, functionality and performance.
Stay tuned for the official launch of the new online product, which will deliver a simple migration process and offer a free trial period so you can get familiar with the new interface.
