Sage PFW

Support For A Retired Solution

What’s Next?

Effective March 2014, Sage retired their PFW ERP. The reason given was that  Sage PFW was created using outdated technology which would be difficult to support on an on-going basis. Since the product is quite stable and a known quantity, we have found that many of our clients have chosen to simply continue to operate their software until they decide what they want to do.

Evron is and will continue to  support these organizations until they are ready to make a change.  Choosing a new ERP software is a ten to fifteen year decision. This is the typical system life cycle. Consequently, one should consider the choice carefully.  Evron suggests that moving from one outdated product to another outdated product from the same era, may not be prudent. You don’t want to repeat the process in a few years when the successor is retired. Call us to discuss options.

  • Continued Support

    With over twenty years of experience with PFW (Platinum), Evron has the expertise to maintain your current Sage PFW Service. We will provide continued service for businesses who want to stay on the system for now. However we do encourage the next option for those sticking with PFW. 

  • Bridge to Microsoft SQL

    Evron Computer Systems has created a powerful bridge from Sage PFW (formerly Platinum for Windows) to Microsoft SQL. EVSQL for PFW moves you up to the industry standard by replicating the full PFW Pervasive database into a MS SQL data warehouse. This data is linked to MS Excel and kicks open the door to data analysis and reporting opportunities. With all Sage PFW data now in SQL and visible from Excel, you can freely access this data using the latest tools.

  • Migration

    There are new ERP alternatives that could enable your business to reduce long term costs associated with keeping a retired platform while supporting your further growth. After consulting with you, we can tell you what ERP will be of most benefit to you and then continue with implementation and training.

    Alternatives Include: Acumatica, Spire, Epicor, and Sage 300.
