The roll out will start in the United Kingdom during the current fiscal year. Hare described the coming product as a "more functionally rich tier of this solution for professional user, those users that are more finance focused require additional capability and management tools.” The pro product is expected to attract new customers and offer a migration path for Sage 50 customers who want a native cloud product. Hare said the migration from Sage 50 is complicated by the wide variation in how much functionality customers use in the older product. “So if you're using all of the functionality of Sage 50, then this first version is not going to be quite as functionally rich,” he noted. Hare also said Sage will not force users to migrate. “We'll encourage them to migrate over time, but remember we've only just migrated most of them onto cloud connected, so there's probably a bedding-in period,” Hare said.Last modified on Friday, 06 December 2019
