Sage is running a Clientcare reactivation campaign whose stated expiration is 9/30/09 and which is directed at MAS 90 and MAS 200 not on current on a maintenance (Clientcare) plan.
In summary, the details are:
MAS 90 & MAS 200 Version 4.x Clientcare Reinstatements
– Version 4.x clients not on plan can save 40% on lapsed years between end of previous contract and date of reinstatement. Future maintenance or support not included. This offer cannot be combined with any other offer.
Users can also save by re-enrolling on a multi-year agreement, buying new modules, upgrading to EES, buying Applianz.
MAS 90 & MAS 200 Version 3.x Value Plan
– Version 3.x clients can get on the Value Plan for $1,000 MAS90 or $1,250 MAS 200.
Most clients take advantage of this plan either (a) to become eligible to buy new modules/licenses or (b) obtain the Paperless Office add-ins or (c) obtain three free Sage phone support cases.
Worth noting that Sage is giving THREE FREE SUPPORT CASES with the Value Plan.
Page 6 of Sage’s most current MAS90 & MAS200 Supported Platforms Matrix (2/11/09) lists June 2010 as the last date that version 3.71 will be supported. I’m unsure whether this is a typo or whether you would be purchasing less than a full year of coverage under the Value Plan for 3.71.
I’ve asked Sage to clarify the EOL (end of life) for version 3.71 and have yet to receive a response.
Sage MAS 500 Clientcare Reinstatements
– MAS 500 users can get back on plan for 40% off
Read the appropriate web links above for the details — I’m paraphrasing the offers and quite possibly stated something incorrectly
The three free support cases only seems to apply to 3.x clients who come back on a value plan. The value plan itself ONLY provides for 3.71 with no upgrade rights. Clients would have to negotiate their 3.71 to 4.x upgrade fee with Sage.
