Sage Mobile Sales, Billing and Payments Discontinued Effective April 4, 2016

Sage today confirmed that Sage Mobile Sales and Sage Billing and Payments would be discontinued April 4, 2016. Sage had been privately telling prospective customers that the solutions would not continue to be sold however the official announcement took a while longer as Sage worked up an FAQ for their partner channel.

Sage Mobile Sales and Sage Billing and Payments were formally announced in February 2014.  The announcements were bolstered by videos that spanned some of the partner keynotes at Sage Summit 2013.

As noted by Sage in an email sent to their partners on November 24, 2015:

After careful review and consideration, we have decided to retire Sage Mobile Sales and Sage Billing and Payment as of April 4, 2016. This means that we will no longer market or sell these two products as of today and will support our current customers until April 4, 2016.

This decision has been made after reviewing customer feedback and market fit. We recognize our customers’ need for increased mobility, so our core focus will be on offering leading-edge mobile solutions through our ecosystem of business partners and ISVs, while concurrently reinvesting back into our core Sage solutions and into the modernization of our growth portfolio.

Sage 100c Version 2016 Overview Guide and Literature

Sage have just released this 20-page overview brochure to showcase their latest Sage 100c 2016 release. Featuring a new modern user interface this release is sold via subscription to both new and existing users of Sage 100. If you are an existing Sage 100 user who would like to update, the cost is approximately 15% above your existing maintenance. Contact your Sage partner for more information.

Sage 100c is functionally identical to Sage 100, with the primary difference being customizable user interface themes. We think that this release represents the look of where future versions of Sage 100 will move and that at some point in the future all users will migrate this direction.
