Effective January 1, 2017, Sage 100c, the new premium version of Sage 100 will be the only option available to new customers and certain existing customers.
What does the “c” stand for in Sage 100c?
The “c” stands for subscription which means that it is sold to Sage 100 under a traditional perpetual license. Sage 100c is sold differently and 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 maintain 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?
From January 1, 2017, Sage 100c will be the only product available for new customers to purchase. Companies not already using the software will no longer be able to purchase the classic version of Sage 100 (perpetual license) after December 31, 2016. If your company already owns the classic version of Sage 100, however, and you go off plan for more than 3 months, Sage 100c will be the only option available to you to reinstate your plan.
How does this affect CURRENT Sage 100 On‐plan Customers?
Active on‐plan customers can continue to use the classic version of Sage 100 as a perpetual license beyond January 1, 2017 and also purchase additional modules and licenses. They will also have the option to convert to Sage 100c.
