Summary: There are only a handful of differences between Premium and Distribution, but they are definitely significant. For many users, the addition of unit of measure conversions and bill of material revisions allow them to stay on Sage 50 instead of having to upgrade to much more expensive software.
Sage 50 Distribution Accounting (formerly Peachtree) was eliminated from the Sage 50 product lineup with the release of version 2015. Distribution users upgrading to the current version will be moved up to Sage 50 Quantum.
