Sage is encouraging all customers to be current on their software. Being current helps companies to utilize the current operating systems like Microsoft Windows 7 and Microsoft Server 2008. Current software will have updates and bug fixes available to customers on subscription. Updates and bug fixes keep customers from losing productivity by not forcing them to create workarounds and troubleshoot issues that are already fixed in the update. Sage's plan is to provide customers with plenty of notice to ensure that customers continue to run their business on a supported version and get the most value from their investment.
