Promotions are always applied to the product portion of any software costs and not against the recurring software maintenance.
In order to participate in these promotions (and to purchase any new modules or product licenses), a current Sage Basic Software Maintenance Plan is required.
Noteworthy MAS90 & MAS200 Promotions
I’ve included a complete listing of all promotions as distributed by Sage Software earlier this month.
Some of the more noteworthy promotions are:
- Reinstatement for lapsed maintenance at 40% off provided you enroll on EasyPay (this is where Sage bills your credit card monthly for the maintenance costs)
- Migrate to Extended Enterprise Suite and save 40% off the cost of coming current
- Receive a free copy of Sage Credit Card module for enrolling with Sage Payment Solutions
- Participate in the Sage Credit Card Promo and also be eligible to buy Business Alerts for $895 (plus maintenance) and the ACH Electronic Payments (AP-1063) and AP Paperless Stubs (AP-1095) for ony $1,500 (plus maintenance).
New purchasers of Sage MAS 90 or MAS 200 should look no farther than the Extended Enterprise Suite. This bundle includes:
- Library Master
- Business Insights
- Paperless Office
- General Ledger
- Accounts Receivable
- Accounts Payable
- Customer Relationship Management (aka SageCRM 6.2)
- Inventory Management
- Sales Order
- Purchase Order
- Return Merchandise Authorization
- Bill of Materials
- Bank Reconciliation
- Visual Integrator
- Custom Office
- FRX & Crystal Reports
- Fixed Assets (FAS)
- Federal & State eFiling
- Credit Card Processing by Sage Payment Solutions
We are seeing extremely aggressive upgrade pricing for existing users of Sage MAS 90 and 200 that starts at about $500 per user (minimum 5 users) to upgrade from standard MAS 90 to EES (Extended Enterprise Suite). In most instances you should strongly consider EES even if all you need is an extra module or two.
Sage Software is currently running a promotion with EES that gives you 2 extra users for every 5 you purchase.
Below is the official promotional sheet distributed this quarter that goes into greater detail about the savings that are being offered.
