What does this mean for me?
If your current version of Sage 200 is in ‘extended support’ status it means that Sage has withdrawn their support, updates, and upgrades for this version of Sage 200. On January 30th 2023, v2018 reached the ‘end of life’.
Although this version of Sage 200 won’t be supported after the January 2023 deadline, the system will continue working and the Techsol Group team will continue to support you on a day-to-day basis.
That said, it is important that you start to consider upgrading to the latest version of Sage 200 as soon as is practical.
By not upgrading to a supported version of Sage 200 you will be limited on what you can do going forward, should you need to add additional users or purchase extra modules you will be unable to do so until you have upgraded.
What do I need to do?
If your version of Sage 200 will no longer be supported by Sage, it is important that you look at Sage 200 upgrade options as soon as possible. It is also important to consider any implications around the recent Microsoft retirement of the TLS1 protocol.
When considering your upgrade options, you can check out Sage’s online guide to view the features and functionality that you benefit from by upgrading to the latest version of Sage 200.
If you are unsure which version you are using, you can click on the Settings button at the top right of your screen and select About Sage 200, or contact our team who will be more than happy to help.
