This release was primarily a subscription version of their Sage 100 perpetual license. Prior to the introduction of subscription pricing, Sage 100 modules had been sold as perpetual licenses meaning a company would pay a larger up-front initial license fee and a somewhat optional annual maintenance fee which covered upgrades and Sage support. While the ongoing costs were typically the same the subscription ( Sage 100c ) version offered a much lower initial purchase price. The biggest current feature difference is that Sage 100 Subscription ( including Partner Cloud ) offerings provide access to multiple bin usage for inventory items. Many companies assign multiple bin numbers to the same inventory items for a variety of reasons – including inspection, committed quantities, and other requirements.
