Let’s take a look at why Sage Abra Suite is going away and what you should consider doing about it.
With FoxPro now retired, Microsoft will no longer test it for compatibility with new releases of Windows.
Will Sage Abra Suite Keep Working?
NOTE: Quarter 3, 2015 will be the final product update for Sage Abra Suite Version 9.1. Click here for details.
What’s the Next Step?
Beyond the underlying technology, there are functional benefits of migrating to Sage HRMS as well. Because both products are owned by Sage, the interface is very similar. That means Sage Abra Suite customers are up and running with the HR suite in Sage HRMS with a very short learning curve using features, functions, and an environment they’re already very familiar with.
But the Sage HRMS Payroll Module is where Abra Suite customers see the most significant changes. In particular because of the SQL database, there’s no need to have users exit the system while running payroll or database backup. There’s also a wide range of payroll features and streamlined processes in Sage HRMS that simply don’t exist in Abra Suite.
