Sage announced earlier this year and recently reiterated that effective January 1, 2017, Sage 100c (the new premium version of the product) will be the only Sage 100 offering available to new customers and certain existing customers.
What is does the “c” stand for in Sage 100c?
The “c” stands for subscription so it is sold different to Sage 100 sold under a traditional perpetual license. In addition to the way the product is sold, Sage 100c also has a new redesigned and modernized web interface. It also offers an advanced manufacturing suite, inventory optimization bundle, and built‐in Sage Intelligence Reporting. Other than these differences, the two products still have the same functionality and workflow.
Many people still refer to the “classic” version of the software as MAS 90 or MAS 200.
What is Changing?
Sage 100c will be the only product available for purchase to new customers beginning January 1, 2017. Companies not already using the software will not be able to purchase the classic version of Sage 100 (perpetual license) after December 31, 2016.
But if you already own the classic version of Sage 100 and you go off plan for more than 3 months, the only option available to you to reinstate your plan will be Sage 100c .
How does this affect CURRENT Sage 100 On‐plan Customers?
Active on‐plan customers can continue using the classic version of Sage 100 as a perpetual license beyond January 1, 2017 – as well as purchase additional modules and licenses. They will have the option to convert to Sage 100c.
