Every day we receive calls from users of MAS90 or MAS200 asking how much an upgrade of their system would cost.
The pricing for upgrade services varies depending upon a number of factors.
For example if you are using Sage Extended Solutions, customizations, data import routines, custom reports, custom forms, large numbers of users, advanced modules or have multiple companies with large amounts of data then your cost could rise significantly as compared to a less sophisticated user.
We recommend a 4 phase upgrade approach and a fixed price.
Stage One – Install and Configure
We typically complete this for you by installing and configuring the new version of MAS 90 or MAS 200. During this time you will continue to work in your older version.
In advance of this stage we’ll provide you with a list of compatible hardware and operating systems to make sure there are no surprise incompatibilities.
Stage Two – Testing
Once we’ve setup your MAS 90 or MAS 200 version we’ll work with you to create one or more test versions. During this time you are still working in the older versions of MAS 90 or MAS 200 while you test the new version (data, forms, imports, add-ons, etc) on your existing computer hardware.
Stage Three – Go Live
Upon your approvale we’ll take your MAS90 upgrade live. This means we’re doing a final conversion, assisting with upgrade tasks like aligning forms and also providing new features training.
Stage Four – Post Go Live Followup
The last stage of your upgrade happens about 3 to 5 days after you’ve gone live. We schedule a conference call to discuss any open issues with the upgraded system. After the issues list is creates we’ll develop a timetable to resolve those issues which we’ve determined need further action.
How Much Does A MAS90 or MAS200 Upgrade Cost?
This depends on the version you’re moving from and the number of companies being upgraded as well as the complexity.
We can provide a much better estimate after discussing your systems and determining if you have any special requirements.
Important – Here’s How We Respond To Web Inquiries
We find that the majority of web inquiries are:
- Users seeking to verify a price
- Users required to collect three bids – and we’re either #2 or #3
That’s completely fine by us. We’re delighted to take your information from the form below and email you an estimate (we call it “starting at” because it’s the price that we’d typically charge assuming no other complications).
Here’s how we respond to inquiries.
- Our initial response provides a “starts at” price. This gives you a price that 85% of the time is the one that our customers would pay for an upgrade
- If you require a written proposal (ours are 10+ pages) then we charge a fee of $ 500. If you have us perform your upgrade within 90 days of receiving the proposal (which means you submit a deposit for the upgrade) we FULLy credit the $500 against your upgrade.
Creating and submitting a written proposal requires that we log into your system remotely to verify setup, ask questions about issues and otherwise perform consulting tasks to uncover potential issues that may not have been known during our less formal email quote.
