Sage 50 Hosted - End of Life
From the end of June 2015, Sage 50 Hosted will no longer be available or supported. The existing service will be discontinued.
The software was developed a number of years ago in response to the changing needs of customers and the growing demand for Software as a Service. It allowed you to access your Sage data from anywhere with an internet connection.
So what are your options?
If you have found yourself faced with this fast approaching deadline, then we can offer some alternative suggestions:
1) Check out Sage 50 Version 2015 on premise
Although the on premise version must be installed on a server (for network environments), it offers customers some familiarity and comfort in terms of "look and feel" and general functionality.
In addition, Sage 50 Version 2015 offers new functionality and flexibility to enable remote users and accountants use the software from remote offices (Sage 50 Drive). It also provides the facility to automate your back-ups and there is no need to stop working while your back-up is being done. With some additional apps available such as the Accounts Tracker and Mobile Sales, you will have key business and sales information available when you need it on your smart phone or tablet (iOS/Android).

2) Consider Sage 200 Online
If your initial intention was to use software in a cloud environment, then Sage 200 Online may be the perfect choice for your company. Sage 200 Online is a hosted solution, but offers more features, functionality and flexibility for growing businesses.
