WHAT DOES Abra End-of-life MEAN FOR ME?

Your current application should continue to operate with no interruption.  We would recommend not applying any Windows desktop or server software updates without completely testing their compatibility with your Sage Abra installation.

how LONG will a migration take?

We are recommending that all Abra Suite clients migrate as soon as possible with a scheduled date to begin your project no later than the first quarter of 2020.

Your implementation time will vary depending on your product choice and the number of modules you require - expect a minimum of one month for a simple payroll OR HR only implementation.

Time is Critically Short!
