What is Sage 100c?
- Sage 100c is the “Subscription” pricing model for Sage 100. An annual subscription fee is charged to use the software. The software goes into a read only mode if the annual subscription is not renewed.
- Since 2016, Sage has been adding more new features to the subscription based Sage 100c version versus the original Sage 100 perpetual license version in order to encourage customers to move to the subscription pricing plan.
What is Sage 100cloud?
- In 2018 Sage decided to rename Sage 100c to Sage100cloud in order to emphasize the “cloud connected” services available with the “c” product line.
- Sage 100, Sage 100c and Sage 100cloud are all the same product with more features unlocked and available with the “c” versions. This product is still loaded on your local server and local workstations. You may choose to run your software on a hosting service of your choice or to utilize any of the cloud connected services such as credit card processing and mobile apps.

- Upgrade to version 2017 for all those running Payroll, Job Cost or Timecard.
- This is the last year for year-end updates on version 2016.
- Support for version 2015 is ending on 9/30/2018 and there will not be any year end updates.
