Now Sage 1000 is due to be retired, what are your options for next steps?
Many businesses are still relying on Sage 1000 for their day-to-day operations but the recent announcement that Sage 1000 will soon be retired has left many people wondering what to do next.
If you’re in this position, it’s time to start planning for the transition over to a new system.
Sage 1000 will officially reach end of life on December 31, 2024. After this date, Sage will provide no new updates, features, or support.
That means you’ve still got time to get everything sorted before it’s too late.
When you’ve got to move over all of your business’ data and systems to a new platform, it’s understandable to be concerned about things getting lost or changed over in the switch. Or you may be concerned about the potential for costly downtime to your operations or the disruption this may cause to your staff.
But we take the utmost care to make sure that all of your sensitive data is kept safe and everything is perfectly mapped out over to your new system so you don’t have to worry about anything getting lost in the shuffle. We’ll also make sure that the switch goes as smoothly as possible, with minimal disruption to your business and we’ll be there for ongoing support to help you get set up and make the most of your new setup.
