Ensure that Your Information is Secure
Upgrade to the latest version of Sage 300 to safeguard your business data. Get access to all the product updates and make sure your software investment is safe and the system is working smoothly.
Stay On the Latest Technology
Gain a technological edge over your competitors. Ensure that your software is compatible with the latest operating systems and newest releases of Windows, Microsoft Office, Java etc. and easily integrates with other business software applications.
Get Access to Several New and Improved Features
When you upgrade your Sage 300 (Accpac) system, you will get access to many new and improved features – e.g. improved bank reconciliation, inventory control processing, etc.
- Ensure compliance with ACA requirements
- Save time posting new records (directly from the data entry screens)
- New browser-based home page and web screens for Sage 300
- Reduce stock outs and excess inventory with Sage Inventory Advisor
- Get paid faster with Sage Billing and Payments
The newer features are noted to improve performance, and increase your compatibility with other software – e.g. Microsoft Office 2013 and 2016 versions, Windows 8 and Windows 10 operating systems.
Get Sage Payroll and Product Updates
Upgrading to a Sage supported version will give you access to payroll tax updates and other form changes for your payroll. You will also get additional product updates that continue to improve or fix any bugs found in the current supported versions of Sage 300.
Sage Is Expected to Change to a Yearly Release Schedule
Sage is expected to go to a regular release schedule. This may mean releasing a new version of Sage 300 every year. So, instead of updating your Sage 300 system every 6 years, you will now be required to upgrade your Sage 300 ERP system every 3 years, to stay within the Sage support system.
Important Note: Sage currently supports N minus (-) two versions of the Sage 300 system (they support the current version of Sage 300 and the two versions prior to it.)
Sage version 2017 will be released in August 2016. Once that version is released, Sage 2012 will no longer be supported by Sage. The new supported versions will be Sage 2014, Sage 2016 and Sage 2017.
