Upgrade sage Line 500 to Sage x3

Why it’s time to update your software

Outgrown your Sage Line 500 Software?

Sage may no longer be investing in or promoting Sage Line 500 but it does not mean they are cutting off current customers. You can still carry on using the system as you have it but you won’t be able to benefit from any new technology and Sage no longer guarantees that it will be legislatively compliant.

If you’re looking for a long-term solution to replace Sage 500 then it could be worth investing in Sage’s leading business management solution, Sage X3.

Key challenges for Sage Line 500 customers

Static functionality

Sage Line 500 isn’t kept up to date with modern features, functionalities and improvements that are available in alternative supported software. This could limit your business’s ability to operate more efficiently.

Security risks

Outdated software like Sage Line 500 might have known security vulnerabilities that are not being patched; or might be hosted in an environment that is no longer supported. This leaves your business more susceptible to cyber-attacks, data breaches and unauthorised access, potentially resulting in significant financial damage. 

Lack of support

Sage Line 500 no longer receives active updates or patches from the software vendor. This means you could face difficulties in resolving technical issues, addressing bugs or receiving assistance in case of software-related problems. Furthermore, you will run out of OEM support on the environment and become increasingly exposed over time.

Compliance concerns 

As industry regulations and data privacy standards evolve, Sage Line 500 might not meet the latest compliance requirements. This could lead to legal issues and fines if your business fails to adhere to relevant regulations.

Difficulty in scaling 

Sage Line 500 might not be able to handle increased transaction volumes, more complex processes or the demands of a larger customer base.
