Sage 100, Sage 100Cloud, and the New Statewide Transit Tax

Posted by Sue on June 12, 2018 at 3:40 PM

Sage Software will only be updating Sage 100 version 2018 and Sage 100Cloud version 2018 to accommodate the new, statewide Oregon Transit Tax, which goes into effect on July 1 of this year. As we mentioned in our preview last month, the Transit Tax is 0.1% of each and every Employee’s Withholding Wage, is to be reported quarterly, and is reported on a separate form that is not part of the Oregon OQ Quarterly filing. For Sage Payroll clients on versions 2014, 2015, 2016, or 2017 (or even older versions!), we’ve had to be creative to accommodate the new tax. For clients using Sage Payroll version 2018, you’ll receive the update automatically through the new 2018 Tax Engine at month end.

How will Sage's pricing changes affect you?

Posted by B/P News & Notes on January 23, 2018 at 4:36 PM

Sage changed their software’s pricing structure in 2017 with the introduction of Sage 100c – a Subscription-based version of Sage 100. Now, in 2018, Sage has created a strategy that attempts to motivate Perpetually-licensed Sage 100 customers to move to the new Subscription-based 100c. This applies to customers who own, rather than rent, the software and who have a current Sage Business Care Plan. It’s important that Sage customers educate themselves about what all of this means and how it will affect their Sage 100 solution over the next two years. This post is an effort to help with that education.

Posted by B/P News & Notes on April 17, 2017 at 8:48 AM

It’s almost been a year since the release of Sage 100c, Sage’s new “connected, collaborative, and customer-focused” subscription software, and 2017 saw the end of the perpetual Sage 100 license for new customers. It’s been a confusing year for everyone involved, but now that the dust is settling, here’s what we know.

Sage 100c: Why would you rent the house you already own?

Posted by Sue on August 25, 2016 at 12:12 PM

You’ve no doubt heard of The Cloud. You know…that invisible place where companies from Apple to Oracle want you to move all your digital stuff? Unfortunately, it can be difficult to separate marketing about The Cloud from cloud computing itself, and so it’s hard to decide if using the technology will benefit your organization. So let’s start with this question: What is cloud computing?

Clearing Up Confusion Over Sage 100c

Posted by Sue on May 31, 2016 at 11:02 AM

I did a session at our Connections Conference in May called ‘The Road Ahead for Sage 100’, and apparently I did a really bad job of trying to explain that Sage 100c is what Sage wants “The Road Ahead” to be for Sage 100.

Sage Software introduced Sage 100c at the end of 2015, and Sage 100c has only two things that Sage 100 currently does not have: The ability to change font resolution on your Sage 100 screens and the ability to use “Themes” – which is basically the ability to change screen colors– by user. It does have a modern look and feel – but if you know how to use Sage 100, you’ll know how to use

What is Sage 100c?

Posted by B/P News & Notes on April 22, 2016 at 2:04 PM

Sage 100c is a subscription-based version of Sage 100 that has all the same features but with the addition of an enhanced user interface. Although being marketed by Sage as a “technology product,” Sage 100c is not an internet based version of Sage 100.
