Happy Retirement Sage Accpac 5.6
As is typically the case after a new release, Sage has announced that they will be discontinuing support for Sage 300 ERP (Accpac) Version 5.6 as of July 1, 2014.
With the recent release of Sage 300 ERP 2014 in March, this announcement follows the Sage Product Support Policy which states that Sage will support the current version and two versions back, with product updates being made available for the current version only.
In addition, if you are using Canadian Payroll version 5.6, you should be aware that the last tax tables for this version will be June 30, 2014.
If you are considering upgrading your system, some of the enhancements made to Sage 300 ERP 2014 include a new user interface using a ribbon style tool bar, a re-design of the Zoom, Finder and New Record buttons, the addition of an “Entered by” field in Purchase Order, and new Visual Process flows for Canadian Payroll and Project & Job Costing. Also there are some major improvements to Sage Intelligence reporting that will help you to quickly create customized reports, save them for future use, and distribute them on a regular schedule.
