You hear a constant whirring or beeping sound when you walk past the server room that may be just annoying. Or it might indicate that something is failing. Or maybe you’re feeling the pain of having been told that it’s time to upgrade the server again in order to continue running your Sage software, and you ask yourself: “Didn’t we just upgrade that server a few years ago?” There is a chance you have been tempted to move everything to the Cloud, or maybe you’re being forced to because of changes to the work environment. Now is as good a time as any to make the switch for your Sage 100 software. But how do you know where to begin - or whether this solution even makes sense for you?
Did you know that you can export to Excel from look-up screens and any Grid in Sage 100? Here is a Bank Reconciliation example of exporting from a Grid:
We are excited to tell you about a couple of new features in the recent Product Update for Sage 2019 that we have been requesting for some time now.
You may have recently received a phone call from a Sage Software representative – or you will probably receive one in the very near future. They are calling regarding moving from your current Sage Business Care Plan to a Sage 100cloud Subscription. The urgency around this latest push has to do with a price hike coming as of April 1, 2019, and we want you to have all the information you need before that deadline arrives.
Since the release of Sage 100cloud in 2016, Sage has been pushing hard for customers to migrate away from the perpetual license software model and to the subscription-based version of their software. The efforts encouraging customers to move to the subscription model have included some “carrot and stick” tactics:
On December 19th, Sage will release a year-end Interim Release Download (IRD) with program changes for Accounts Payable and Payroll, as well as a 2019 Tax Table Update. Please note that the IRD and Payroll Tax Table Update are available for only specific versions of Sage 100 and Sage 100cloud; so please keep reading to find out which versions those are!
Years ago, when software manufacturers would telephone our clients trying to sell them something they had not originally purchased, or a new item that had just been produced, we would tell clients, “Just ignore the man behind the curtain and call us if you have questions. We know how your system is configured better than anyone else, so please call us and just ignore the man behind the curtain.” (You know, The Wizard of Oz - in which the man behind the curtain was pulling all kinds of levers and pretending to be something else - someone much more knowledgable - than he actually was?)
We were recently notified that Sage Software will be directly calling our clients who have not yet converted from Sage 100 to Sage 100cloud, letting them know that Sage 100cloud is a “superior” product and has many features that Sage 100 does not.
And so again we say to you: “Just ignore the man behind the curtain.”
