Sage 100 - The Road Ahead - 2017

Written by Todd Martin on .

During the Sage Summit conference in May this year, Sage delivered a “Road Ahead” presentation that gives us a glimpse of the product development goals and new features that are coming to Sage 100. Here’s a look at what’s to come in 2017 and beyond.

Payroll 2.0 Expected in October 2017

If you’ve read previous newsletters, you’ll recognize that Sage has been hard at work enhancing the Sage 100 payroll module for a while now. The long-anticipated Payroll 2.0 will be included with Sage 100 Version 2018 which is expected for release later this year in October. In addition, Sage 100 Payroll 2.0 will be migrated to the Business Framework.

Job Cost Moving to the Framework

As you already know if you’re using the Sage 100 job cost module, it still runs in the legacy framework while many of the modules around it have been migrated to the more modern Business Framework.

With the release of Sage 100 2018, Job Cost will be migrated to the newer Business Framework which will open things up for more significant strides in features and capability. It is being referred to as Job Cost 2.0.

Upcoming Product Releases

Here is the expected time frame for upcoming product releases into 2018:
Sage 100 2017.2 - expected for release in June 2017, product update 2 will feature electronic invoicing, AP automation, and advanced budgeting & planning tools.

Sage 100 2018 - expected for release October 2017, version 2018 will feature general availability of Payroll 2.0, Job Cost 2.0,  Office 365 contact integration, and more automation in Bank Reconciliation.

Sage 100 2018.1 - expected for release February 2018,  product update 1 will feature new 3rd party integrated add on solutions for e-Commerce and Point of Sale (POS) as well as connecting Sage 100 Paperless Office with Office 365.

As with any forward-looking presentations or pre-release guides, any of this information can change prior to actual live release of the respective product versions. And you can probably expect a collection of smaller enhancements to be included with each release that aren’t mentioned here. But it does provide us with a good idea of where Sage 100 is headed now and into the near future.
