Sage 100Cloud vs. Sage 100 Classic - What's the Difference?

Written by Todd Martin on .

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.

How Sage 100 is accessed over the web is the same for either product. Sage 100cloud allows for access through the web to the connected services where Sage 100 Classic does not.

Expanded Functionality

As mentioned, Sage 100cloud connects with an ecosystem of cloud apps that aren’t available with Sage 100 Classic. Here’s a look at a few of those apps, some of which are included while others are available as optional add-ons:
