Users of Sage 100c version 2016 will notice upon starting the software for the first time that there’s an option to use either (a) classic desktop or (b) standard desktop. The classic desktop is the same interface used in prior versions of Sage 100.

- Existing users who upgrade from Sage 100 (expect approximately a 15% price differential)
Note: When you install Sage 100c, if you are using the Sage Payroll module you must register with the new unlocking keys or your payroll module will not operate properly.
