Perpetual License Pricing Change Coming in March 2018

Written by Todd Martin on .

While many software providers have moved solely to subscription-based licensing, Sage continues to offer both subscription and perpetual license options to customers. In order to accommodate the added cost of maintaining both options, Sage announced that they’ll be adjusting the price of Sage Business Care prices for Sage 100 perpetual licenses.

Beginning in March, Perpetual customers will see an annual increase of 20% on their renewal notification for any Sage Business Care plan renewing on or after March 1, 2018.

Sage states that pricing adjustments are determined based on an annual review across their entire solution portfolio which considers market conditions, the cost of doing business, added value delivered through major product releases, and various other factors. The price increase reflects the added personnel and resources required to support both subscription and perpetual license models.

Note: the increase does not affect Sage 100cloud subscription licenses which remain the same.

Print Your Own Check

Written by Todd Martin on .

Ever look at how much you are paying for the boxes of check stock?

We find that a lot of customers have multiple boxes of check stock for each bank account they print checks for in Sage ERP MAS 90 and Sage ERP MAS 200. Usually there are long lead times to get pre printed check stock and the cost can be very expensive compared to plain check stock. An average customer may pay $84.00 for 250 checks pre-printed in a single color. For the same price of 250 pre-printed checks, that same customer can get 1000 blank checks. How can you do this at your company?

It is easy to setup printing in Sage MAS 90 and 200 for blank check stock. Just a few things are needed:

  1. A printer that has the ability to purchase Micr Toner
  2. Micr Toner
  3. Micr Font from ADOBE
  4. Blank Check Stock

*Links are for your reference. MBA does not endorse any of the providers linked. ADOBE MICR font is the preferred font by SAGE.
