Sage 300cloud Differences

Sage 300 “C” is grouped into three “bundles” so you can choose the best fit for your business. Here is a breakdown of the Essentials, Advanced and Complete bundles.
Sage 300 C is still installed “on premise”. While Sage 300 “C” can be hosted, it is a hybrid cloud based application, not a pure SAAS cloud model. It is still installed on a server at your site or elsewhere much as the regular Sage 300 is. Some additional security and configuration is required to enable web access, which we are happy to assist you with. In addition, the same desktop user interface you know and love is still there! No re-learning a new user interface if you do not want to. You have a choice to use either one you prefer today.
