Perpetual License Pricing Change Coming in March 2018

by Vrakas Blum

While many software providers have moved solely to subscription-based licensing, Sage continues to offer both subscription and perpetual license options to customers. In order to accommodate the added cost of maintaining both options, Sage announced that they’ll be adjusting the price of Sage Business Care prices for Sage 100 perpetual licenses.

Beginning in March, Perpetual customers will see an annual increase of 20% on their renewal notification for any Sage Business Care plan renewing on or after March 1, 2018.

Sage states that pricing adjustments are determined based on an annual review across their entire solution portfolio which considers market conditions, the cost of doing business, added value delivered through major product releases, and various other factors. The price increase reflects the added personnel and resources required to support both subscription and perpetual license models.

Note: the increase does not affect Sage 100c subscription licenses which remain the same.
