What happened to my Accpac?

Posted by Meredith Gooch on Mon, Oct 22, 2012

Sage renamed all of the Accpac products:

o       Sage ERP Accpac 100 is now Sage 300 Standard ERP.
o       Sage ERP Accpac 200 is now Sage 300 Advanced ERP.
o       Sage ERP Accpac 500 is now Sage 300 Premium ERP.

Sage now has a simpler way to present the increasing levels of product capability available to you. Like luxury automobiles, the numbers associated indicates the sophistication level of the product. For example, a BMW 135 has fewer features than the 5 series.

 

So Sage renamed its core product offerings under the Sage 50, Sage 100, Sage 300, and Sage 500 banners, which in turn helps simplify finding additional Sage solutions that are the right fit for your business, when and if you need them, at any stage in your business growth cycle.

The Importance of Security When Deploying Sage Accpac ERP on the Web

Posted by Meredith Gooch on Wed, Mar 10, 2010

Even though the soon-to-be-released Sage Accpac ERP Version 6 will be a Web-based application, you will still be able to deploy it on your LAN to minimize the risk of exposure to the Web. However, the ability to log in to Sage Accpac from home, the airport, a hotel, or my local Starbucks would really make life a lot easier in certain situations. However, with great power comes great responsibility. While Version 6 will be set up to do all communication through a secure connection called Transport Layer Security (TLS), it will still be important for users of Sage Accpac Version 6 to follow corporate security practices. Awareness training for employees to not disclose passwords, ensuring IT staff routinely monitors server logs for unusual activity, and properly installing Sage Accpac Version 6 by a certified Sage Accpac consultant are just a few ways to ensure your data is safe.
