Sage Offers Three Levels of Business Care.
- Sage Silver – 21% of current suggested list price of modules licensed
- Sage Gold – 25% of current suggested list price of modules licensed
- Sage Platinum – 25% of current suggested list price of modules licensed plus $2,000
These plans are annually recurring and the selection of one plan is required with your initial purchase of Sage 100 accounting (formerly MAS 90 or MAS 200).
The plan cost is built-into the subscription pricing of Sage 100c. With Sage 100 you must compute the annual Business Care costs by multiplying current perpetual license cost times the level of Sage Business Care selected (Silver/Gold/Platinum).
The top benefit of a plan is the annual software upgrade and periodic Sage 100 program updates. These are NOT sold individually. You must be enrolled in an active Sage Business Care plan in order to receive updates or to purchase any new module licenses.
What Happens If I Drop Sage 100 Business Care?
If you are using Sage 100c which is sold only on subscription, your software will revert to a read-only state and you are unable to perform any further data entry.
If you are using Sage 100 which is sold as a perpetual license you may continue using the software (subject to the EULA) however you will lose all access to Sage support and upgrades. Should you wish to re-join the Business Care plan you will be subject to a penalty which varies based on current Sage policies. You can also rejoin the Business Care plan by subscribing to Sage 100c.
Sage modifies the plan benefits and costs from time to time. Before making any decisions about your Sage Business Care you should check with your Sage partner to receive the most current costs.
