Sage Discontinues Sale of StarShip Products

Written by Todd Martin on .

Sage announced that as of March 31, 2011, that they will no longer sell V-Technologies' StarShip Parcel and StarShip Freight products for Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200, Sage ERP MAS 500, Sage BusinessWorks Accounting, or Sage PFW ERP. This does not mean that you have to change to a different product, if you are currently using StarShip. All this is saying is that Sage will no longer Sell the product as a Endorsed Solution. Sage will not continue to develop the link and support of the StarShip Link will discontinue over time.

Sage will continue to support the StarShip Link (developed by Sage) for on-plan customers who are on currently supported versions of Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200, and StarShip Parcel version 10.1.1 and earlier (per the Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200 Supported Versions document).

StarShip Link will not be included in Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200 Version 4.5.

Customers who have a current maintenance or support plan that extends past August 31, 2011, and includes StarShip Link, will have their next year's maintenance or support plan extended for a pro-rated period, based on the remaining period of support for StarShip Link.

V-Technologies has already built into their current version of StarShip the use of the Business Object Interface this integration to Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200 replaces the StarShip Link that Sage will no longer support. While the workflow is different with the Business Object Interface, the connection between StarShip Parcel and Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200 remains. Contact us for inquiries about the StarShip Business Object Interface integration.

V-Technologies will continue to provide maintenance and support for the StarShip Freight and StarShip Parcel products for Sage customers who are enrolled in a StarShip support plan with them.
