Sage have announced that Line 100 will officially reach its End of Life on 31 March 2014.

At present Sage offer Extended Support for Line 100, via SALP or Sagecover, which means that support and enable strings are still provided. Software updates related to Line 100 are not produced, so there is no guarantee that Line 100 will be legislatively compliant.

From 1 April 2014 customers will no longer be able to add users or modules to their systems and Sage will stop providing technical support to Business Partners. End users will still be able to use their software.

Where and End User is on version 7.1 or above, their software will time out on an annual basis. To continue using it they will be required to purchase an Enable string at a charge of £500 per annum (subject to annual price increases). Any customer on version 7.0 or below has a perpetual licence, which doesn’t time out, therefore they can continue to use their software without any time limit.

Now is the time to move or move your customers to Sage 200.
