What’s the Difference?
With all the talk and communication about Sage 100cloud, some customers might be wondering how it’s different than the Sage 100 Classic (on-premises) product they’ve been using all along. This article explores that topic.
The Major Differences
We’ll start by explaining the major differences between Sage 100 Classic and Sage 100cloud. First, Sage 100cloud is based on subscription pricing which means you pay-as-you-go, as opposed to the larger upfront perpetual license and maintenance costs of Sage 100 Classic. Second, Sage 100cloud features a more modern interface that’s easier to use, customize, and access over the web. Lastly, Sage 100cloud connects with an ecosystem of cloud-based apps that significantly expand features and functionality.
