Sage recently re-branded their Sage 100c product line to Sage 100cloud. The name change is intended to draw attention to the “cloud connected” features available to Sage 100cloud customers as a direct benefit (free of charge) of adopting a subscription plan or as an additional offering, for a small fee based, on subscription status.
As mentioned in our previous post, the differences between Sage 100cloud and Sage 100 are licensing and functionality.
Sage 100cloud is an annual subscription based system, which can be purchased via monthly or annual payments. The subscription cost includes the software, maintenance and support. If you do not renew your Sage 100cloud subscription, your system will go into “read only” mode, which allows you to access the information in the system but no edits or new entries can be made. As of 2017, Sage 100cloud is the only version available for new sales.
Sage 100 was sold in a traditional manner. Software was purchased upfront, followed by an annual maintenance fee, which included software updates and support. In this model, the software is owned and will continue to allow edits even if the maintenance is not current.
Sage 100 and Sage 100cloud share code and architecture, your licensing determines which features you can access. The chart below breaks down all past and upcoming features for both Sage 100 and Sage 100cloud
