Sage Summit 2015 was  July 27-30, 2015 in New Orleans, LA. During this event, CEO Stephen Kelly outlined Sage’s strategy for the coming years including the elimination of “end of life”, “forced migration” and “ERP” from Sage’s vocabulary.

The videos of each keynote are posted online. You may view each of them including Sage’s calling out of ERP as  “Expense, Regret, Pain” and development of themselves as the champion of small business. If you could not make the trip to the conference this is an excellent way to catch up on the major announcements.

Is Windows 10 supported with Sage 100?

windows_10

The Sage knowledge base (as of 8/18/2015) indicates ” Windows 10 is not an officially supported operating system at this time for Sage 100 “.

Several 90 Minds members have  been using Windows 10 without reported problems. Before proceeding with a widespread rollout of Windows 10 across desktops using Sage 100 we recommend you check with your partner or Sage. In many cases the core Sage 100 solution may work without issue, however, there could be integrations or ancillary functions that experience difficulty.

We expect Sage will soon officially support  Windows 10 on all  current versions of Sage 100.

The issue seems to arise when the user has both Sage Credit Cards and Sage Sales Tax (Avalara). The resolution was to obtain a new connector by calling Sage support 800-854-3415 and update the existing Sage 100 sales tax connector.
