Sage 50 Blackout Shows Reliance of Businesses on Peachtree Quantum Software

Accounting virtually went back to the dark ages when Sage's servers crashed for more than 24 hours, Gavin Clarke of The Register reported earlier this September. New and existing accounts that upgraded to the all-new Sage 50, formerly Peachtree Quantum, were left without an accounting suite and resorted to writing invoices and ledger entries by hand. The service was eventually restored, with the server crash attributed to the firm's database provider. Nevertheless, the so-called “blackout” showed something worth noting. Imagine doing business without a fast and efficient way of keeping track of what goes in and out of a company. Sage 50 customers were surely set back in this daily task when they were unable to register their new accounting software. To use most software, users need to verify their copy with a serial code before they can use a program fully. The blackout ruined any chances of them immediately doing so.
