Sage 100 Weekly News - 08/13/2020

We spent most of last week in 90-degree heat without power or internet.

Luckily - power's back and so is our newsletter!

Welcome to the 08/13/2020 Schulz Says newsletter published every Thursday and sent to 1,034 subscribers.

Know of someone in your organization who should be receiving this newsletter? Please have them subscribe here.


Join me next Friday 8/21 at 3 pm ET for a Facebook Live chat with Pat Scherz Director of Sales & Marketing at CIMcloud by websitepipeline.

No registration. No Powerpoint. Watch it while mobile, at home, in the office or while relaxing in your backyard.

Here are some questions I plan to ask:
  • What's the difference between CIMcloud and solutions like Big Commerce/Shopfiy, etc
  • How much does a typical customer pay for CIMcloud to create an e-commerce site?
  • What credit card processors can be used? Can you integrate with Paypal, Apple Pay, etc?
  • What about sales tax? Do you integrate to Avalara? Others?
  • Who is the best type of user for CIMcloud services? The worst? What question during an initial meeting do you dread the most and why?

If you can't attend live - drop by the group anytime after we're done and watch the replay at your leisure.  Join the Facebook Sage 100 User Group here and then log in to the group on Friday 8/21 at 3 pm ET to watch live and ask questions! 

Two promotions which might be of value if:
  • You Haven't Migrated Yet to Sage 100cloud: On-plan perpetual Sage 100 or Sage 300 customers who have renewed their Business Care plan between September 1, 2019, and June 30, 2020, can now upgrade to Sage 100cloud or Sage 300cloud, respectively, at no additional cost.
  • You Dropped Maintenance And Want To Reinstate: When off-plan customers subscribe to Sage 100cloud or Sage 300cloud, they will pay no more than our current Sage Business Care plan prices and will have fees waived. Note: Promo available to perpetually licensed Sage 100 and Sage 300 customers who have been off plan for more than 60 days to a maximum of 2 years.
Contact your Sage partner for details on either of the above promos. A move to Sage 100cloud is especially valuable when coupled with a migration to Sage 100cloud PRemium ( SQL ) which can be done with no extra fee beyond normal licensing.

We just broke 165 registered members on this group, I'm posting the latest updates and technical tips regarding the North American version of Sage 100.

I'm exploring the use of this group for live events which would automatically stay within the group so you could watch them at your own leisure. 

Facebook groups are an easy place to join since by default most users already have an account so there's not the "create yet another login/password" that would be associated with a standalone group site. Join Sage 100 User Group on Facebook


This group is only for currently active Sage partners, ISVS, and Sage employees. We just broke 77 members.  This is more of an industry news sharing group that allows us to share items that wouldn't be of interest to most end-users.

Stay Safe!
