Sage a brief history

Sage 100 ERP – formerly known as MAS 90

First offered in the mid 1980s by a company called State of the Art, Inc, the Master Accounting Series for the 90s gained significant market share by developing a reseller channel largely made up of Certified Public Accountants (CPAs). These accountants used the product in their own practice, became familiar with it, then subsequently recommended it to their client base. Over time, as technology became more complex and rules on Accountants’ independence and objectivity became stricter, nearly all CPAs gravitated away from reselling the software. Now Sage rebrandedd into the product line Sage 100 ERP (see below) is primarily re-sold by a network of independent software consultants.

Upgrading MAS 90 to Sage 100

In October 2011 Sage released version 4.50 of the MAS 90 (and MAS 200) product line, which included an option to use a Microsoft SQL Server database and also an included single user license for Sage CRM. With the release of version 4.50 Sage discontinued their bundled version labeled Sage Extended Enterprise which combined Sage ERP MAS 200, Sage CRM and Sage FAS Fixed Assets and instead merged those features into the core Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200 4.50.

Rebranding MAS 90 into Sage 100 ERP

During the Sage Summit 2011 partner and customer conference, Sage North America announced that many of their products, including Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200, would undergo a rebranding in 2012. Beginning with the next release of Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200 the product would be rebranded as Sage 100 ERP. More specifically Sage ERP MAS 90 would launch as Sage 100 Standard ERP and Sage ERP MAS 200 would launch as Sage 100 Advanced ERP. (source: wikipedia)
