We’ve had a lot of questions lately about the difference between Sage 100 and Sage 100c. There are two main differences, licensing and functionality.
Sage 100c is a modernized, subscription only based solution, which you can pay yearly or monthly. Unlike Sage 100, which was purchased perpetually followed by annual maintenance*, Sage 100c’s subscription fee include the software, maintenance and support. Sage 100c is a subscription, so should you stop paying for it, your software will switch into “read only” mode.
*Please note, as of 1/1/2017, Sage 100c is the only version available for new sales.
Sage 100c is a “deluxe” version of Sage 100. Besides a modern look and feel, it will be the platform receiving most of the new features and functionality going forward. Both Sage 100 and Sage 100c share code and architecture, your licensing determines which features you can access.
Below are the Launcher features available by version with the Sage 100 and Sage 100c version 2017.
Below are some of the planned features for Sage 100 and Sage 100c in the coming years.
