Why are Sage making these
Sage are making these changes to allow
them to concentrate their resources on the Sage 200 suite, which
with its more advanced software features and customisation tools,
is their primary solution for mid-sized businesses.
Line 100 started life at Sage in 1992
as their product of choice for mid-sized businesses that
required a sophisticated accounting business suite with highly
customisable features, for example multi-currency,
multi-company, multiple stock locations and budgeting by cost
centre and department, which could be tailored to meet customers'
The product evolved into MMS in 2003
and Sage 200 in 2007 and many customers have migrated to these
newer solutions, but there are still around 2,500 businesses using
Line 100 today.
The technology platform upon which
Line 100 was built is becoming more costly and difficult to
support, and the operating systems which work with Line 100 are
reaching the end of their respective life cycles. By introducing
these changes Sage will enable their R&D and support teams
to focus on current and future technologies, and pave the way for
the next generation of Sage 200.
Sage are committed to ensuring that
customers get the most benefit from Sage systems. By working with
customers to prepare for changes in supported software platforms,
or forthcoming changes in Government legislation, they can help you
to plan for the future.
