Sage Pro Retirement, Sage PFW Retirement - Important Details

Posted by Mark Badran on Mon, Apr 15, 2013

Nothing evolves faster than technology. ERP software that was once considered "advanced" eventually makes way for newer technologies and improved functionality. That's the case with the recently-announced retirement of:

  • Sage Pro (formerly known as SBT, ACCPAC Pro, or VisionPoint)
  • Sage PFW (formerly known as Platinum for Windows).  

Sage has announced that support for both products ends officially on March 31, 2014.

Many Sage customers have already begun migrating to Sage 300 ERP (formerly "Sage Accpac") ... and for good reason. That's because if you're a current Sage Pro or Sage PFW customer, the Sage Investement Protection Program can help you migrate to Sage 300 ERP for next to nothing!

So while it may be time to say goodbye to Sage Pro and Sage PFW, it's time to say hello to Sage 300 ERP.
