Latest Sage 100 News & Updates

Here’s a collection of product updates, reminders, and upcoming events that we think Sage 100 customers should know about.

Reminder: Changes in Tax Form W-4

As published in our previous Year-End 2019 newsletter, an update from legacy payroll to Sage 100 Payroll 2.0 may be required in order to comply with the new Form W-4 that went into effect on January 1, 2020. In order to comply with these changes, customers must be on Sage 100 Payroll 2.0 (Version 2018 or higher).

Sage 100 Version 2017 and earlier will not support the additional fields necessary to correctly calculate federal withholding taxes within the system and would need to be calculated outside of Sage 100 and adjusted manually.

End of Support: Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2

More than 10 years after its original release, Microsoft no longer supports Windows 7 (as well as Windows Server 2008 R2) as of January 14, 2020. As a result, Sage can no longer offer support for Sage 100 or Sage 100cloud running on either of these older Windows platforms. If you fall into that category, we recommend that you upgrade to a currently supported version of Sage 100 as soon as practical.  As always, be sure to contact us if you need support or help with an upgrade.

Coming Soon: Sage Operations Management

Beginning in February, Sage 100cloud Manufacturing will be referred to as Sage Operations Management.  But it’s more than just a name change. That’s because, in Q2 2020, Sage plans to release two new industry solutions including Sage 100cloud for Distribution and Sage 100cloud for Manufacturing. The name change will help avoid confusion between just the manufacturing component and the new bundled solution for both manufacturing and distribution. Stay tuned to this newsletter for more detail to come when Sage Operations Management is officially released.
