Sage 1000 and 500 End-of-Life dates


Sage 1000/500 EOL

With only six months left until Sage 1000/500 reaches End-of-Life (EOL) – 31st December 2024, you might have reached a point where you are considering options for a new ERP system. For many businesses, Sage 500 or Sage 1000 performed exactly the way you wanted them to when you first implemented them in your business. However, as your business grows, you often need more sophisticated functionality.

Protect your business from unnecessary risks

When Sage 1000/500 is no longer supported, it puts your business at risk. Not having access to critical security updates creates security vulnerabilities and no more security fixes being issued means that your applications are a minefield of security hazards. For this reason alone, you should act as soon as possible. We recommend that rather than waiting for issues to arise, start your new ERP journey and those conversations now, keeping in mind future business goals and growth targets.
