"Great tool for organizing and retrieving data at a fast pace."

What do you like best?

The best thing I like about the tool is its versatility, It helps all stakeholders access information at the same time without hassles. Provides a neat flow of data from production/manufacturing to accounting/finance . Overall a great package for any accounting system to have. Has many features which have really help boost performance and minimize data retrieval times. Another great feature is its simple UI which is very easy to navigate and use.

What do you dislike?

One of the drawbacks is that there is a lot of data cleaning needed after export from the tool which needs a skilled Excel Expert. Also when the data sizes are huge (>100MB) the data export is a pretty slow and cumbersome process. It would be great if there is a way to increase the speed of retrieval for such huge processes.Has limitations on number of windows which can be opened simultaneously

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are a mid sized company looking for a reliable ERP System, I would recommend you to start off with SAGE. It provides great breadth of options in accounting and finance ranging from Inventory Management , Pricing , Bill of Materials to Monthly Financial Statements, General Ledger, etc

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mostly Accounting relating problems especially with monthly financial reporting . Apart from that everything from Inventory Tracking, Costing, Bill of Materials, SKUs , Cost Accounting , etc. Really satisfied with the kind of service the tool provides

"I really like sage 100 "

What do you like best?

I like how easy it is to use. It makes my work day go by a lot faster. Everything is organized and easily accessible. Very easy to learn. Any mistake I may make, it is very easy to fix and get back on track. Over all, sage 100 helps with logistics of our business, stock and restock information, client payments and overdue balances. We as a business look more professional, organized and productive. Sage helps us with communication with not only our clients, but also our co-workers. Keeping track of our clients and providing them with great service is our goal.

What do you dislike?

Closing customer maintenance window each time I need to look up another customer. When entering payment, I need to be very careful when flowing step sequence to process a payment. I would hope that one day sage can notify me when a client makes a payment or a deposit. I wish those sides could merge together in some way to help us keep track of payments,

Recommendations to others considering the product

Its easy to learn, quick set up. Smooth transition into the system.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am progressing in accuracy with customer service. Business runs a lot faster with Sage. We as a company are providing fast and tromp service to our clients with ease. Sage is just an easy way for a business to run smoothly and easily. We are a very busy and sage helps us create a viable environment with not only our clients but with co-workers.

"An Essential tool for your everyday ERP management"

What do you like best?

I love how easy it is for us to use Sage to locate our items in stock, to assist us in placing orders, tracking orders, tracking customer preferential pricing, We are also able to record tracking numbers into our purchase orders, see when orders were placed, see when the purchase order was written, and where it is coming from. We are also able to look into a customers history to see how frequently they are purchasing from us and when was their last purchase in order to reactivate them as a customer if need be. I love that we are able to store multiple addresses on one account as well as multiple names and emails.

What do you dislike?

Our version is very temperamental for a reason I am not yet aware of since I have only been using it for 6 months and I am sure there are probably some things I still don't know. The only thing I do not like is that you can never go back once you make a quote a sales order. You can not make a Standard order into a quote again so the only way to correct it is to delete it and start over.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I am certain there are newer versions of this product so I would definitely look into that but otherwise it is a wonderful product. This is used in 95% of my work applications and it is essential to the way we do things here.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I love that is helping me to track errors in our inventory (warehouse). I love how easy it is to look back on a customer's order and see costs.

"LOVE Sage for dispatching, accounting, and SSO tablets "

What do you like best?

Where to start. This is an easy to use program. Everything communicates with everything. Tablets update to computers. Payments post from credit card to bank reconciliation. No Need to go back and deposit after charges are made. Ease of looking up history. Using Payment solutions makes it very simple, no error in posting to wrong accounts.

What do you dislike?

If a user has access to scheduling they can move/ delete/ cancel a technician without knowing they've done it. It would be nice to have a "are you sure you want to un-assign user, delete work order, etc"

something that warns them so it doesn't just disappear.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Everything is able to be copied to Excel. A/R A/P easy to use. Dispatching is a breeze. Able to add pricing and accessible to technicians on tablets. They communicate with each other. You can see what they have added to work orders. Payment Solutions is great! Saves a lot of time. With other outside credit card companys you have to process payment than create deposit, with payment solutions you literally type in client number and it processes the credit card and posts to bank recon without having to do extra work. Another way to save on paper! Can email customer receipts right from there.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using the SSO tablet software has made us go paperless. We are saving so much money by not printing tags, the customers get emailed receipts. We are 80% paperless now. Its wonderful to save and be Green!

"Sage 100c"

What do you like best?

Pros: Easy to use with its straightforward Menu bars. It also allows for you to store multiple contacts within vendors contact module which is nice, has a nice copy and paste feature which comes in handy for AP, and paperless capability.

What do you dislike?

Cons: Some of the basic reporting is lacking, it doesn't allow you to open multiple windows once you start drilling down, finding the exact report you need can be daunting sometimes due to the number of reports they have. I would rather have less reports with more information, but with more options to manipulate data myself. You can input data. For example, we use ADP and I cannot upload a file from ADP, so I'm manually putting in everyone's time and job coding.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great for small to medium sized companies that aren't too complicated. If you're a very large company with multiple divisions, I would look towards Sage 300.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Cost code tracking for multiple jobs. Looking forward to using the paperless feature in 2018.

"It is a great program that works well for our Business"

What do you like best?

The ability to easily enter, process, and search through orders. The ability to change the search features as well make it really nice for searching through our products as well as easily check their cost, sales price, and availability. It is easy to pickup and learn how to use the program.

What do you dislike?

It can be a little slow sometimes but that is to be expected sometimes with technology. The ability to tell who has a particular order open instead of just seeing that someone else has it open would make it quicker and easier to have them close it so you can change the order.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a great program!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

No longer having to search through files to find the information we're looking for. The ability to instantly change orders and other information in the system across all our branches at once. Being able to keep track of individual customers pricing as well as changing their orders on the fly.

"Sage review "

What do you like best?

Our business has around 600 employees. This this system helps us create a great database to put assets into an organized formate where we can come and view it and find what we need in an efficient and fast way.

What do you dislike?

There are restrictions in where it is not completely customizable to our exact liking. Also it it run completely on Wi-Fi or hard internet connect. Without internet you have no access to safe at all. I travel to different branches and sometimes run into the issue that the connection is bad and it stops me from using the program.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are good benefits to this program but the part that I have difficulty over is the restrictions they have Im software where you cannot completely customize it to meet your specific needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are placing all put assets into the safe software to help us organize and track our assets.

"Sage 100 Construction "

What do you like best?

Sage is extremely intuitive and easy to use. Each page is marked with asterisks for simplicity to quickly add information and update again and again as new info is made available.

What do you dislike?

Our company is continually growing and to add additional license's is a pain and very expensive. If there are too many people logged in at one time then another person can't get in and that makes bid day very stressful!

Recommendations to others considering the product

It can be pricey so be aware as you continue to grow your business and perhaps take advantage of buying extra seats early on implementation.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I've used this as part of estimating and now in the operations side. It's good to see how the estimate can be moved from sage and integrated into the other programs we use such as ProCore and e-Takeoff.

"Payroll - SAGE"

What do you like best?

I like the fact that it is easy to use, I figured out most of the payroll f unctions and reporting on my own and without any formal training. You can also manipulate the fields quite easily to get the information you are looking for.

What do you dislike?

The reports that are available can be minimal for certain searches. There should be more options to narrow your search for on time card reporting and on an individual basis.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you get all of the modules in a certain program so that you can access all the information and reporting that you need.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are not solving any problems per say, but it helps when trying to look up certain information in a timely manner.

"Not Meant for Manufacturing"

What do you like best?

If I input a zip code into a vendor's account, it will pull the city and state.

What do you dislike?

If you want to do almost anything that we need, you have to pay extra. I can't pull custom reports without paying extra. The reports we have don't work and don't have all of the information. If we want to move around information, you have to export to excel which comes out looking weird, so then you have to fix that. It takes me at least 2 hours to get a report of Open Invoices by GL Category because I have to manually pull all of the GL information. There are reports that kind of get close, but don't ever get the full information. I still don't have a decent report to give to my sales team so that they can see what we've sold by item to our customers. They see weird numbers and I have to translate it into something readable.

Purchase Orders are a pain and will randomly change GL accounts, regardless of what you have listed for the vendor, sometimes it won't pull the information at all.

Our intercompany information is a disaster because we can't log things easily and Sage 100 isn't compatible across countries. It's not multi-currency.

We have multiple warehouses but have to track all of our shipments using excel spreadsheets because Sage requires us to implement an entire system that costs more money just to utilize their inventory module.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go with something that is more user friendly. Also, our main concerns are that every area of our business is negatively impacted by Sage 100. If one thing was a problem but it worked elsewhere, I think we would be okay, but it's a mess everywhere and I feel like I need another me just to get the reports I need. Just look elsewhere.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have plenty of issues and Sage 100 does not solve any of them.

"Great ERP system for small to mid-size companies"

What do you like best?

Simplicity and intuitive design of all the links

What do you dislike?

some minor stuff like you can't copy the item number in the Item Maintenance window because it zeroes out. Also, kind of annoying to play out the upload Excel file in the CSV format to integrate properly into the MRP.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Get a demo prior to buying. Also, use the testing environment prior to implementing big changes to test.

"Helpful Keeping Track"

What do you like best?

Putting in information, editing, and searching for invoices/sales orders.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes printing can be finicky. Need to be careful with boxes checked and rechecking them if you edit a sales order or will have to open the sales order and manually check print order.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use the application in your spare time to get to know the features and menus.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's overall better than our previous accounting system, MAS. It's easy to go to a task that another worker worked on.

"SAGE 100 Review"

What do you like best?

Ease of use. Each module is located in a centralized location. Large variety of reports to use, plus ability to customize reports to meet many of our needs.

What do you dislike?

There are some limitations in the reporting. Some reports truncate characters due to length in areas that are necessary for use outside of the program - has caused some headaches in our A/P department.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is useful to explore the system. We have discovered items that have been quite handy in our workplace just by clicking around and exploring. Review data that appears on reports to verify all information you expect to be included is shown on the report. We have run into issues when exporting NATCHA files for ACH payments where our message/note to include in the ACH is truncated, leaving out important information for the recipient to correctly apply our payments.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have begun using ACH which has allowed us to save time and money in our A/P department. We have also begun using imports of transactions to also save us time and money in our general accounting department.

"Sage"

What do you like best?

It was very easy to do payroll using this product. Entering in all of the employees info takes some time, but once they're in you don't have to worry about it again. It was so smooth doing payroll and getting reports and such.

What do you dislike?

Not much to dislike here! There were a lot of options available to us that we didn't utilize, but that doesn't necessarily make the product any less of a good one.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I used it to do payroll for the company as well as input data on our employees. It was helpful to have all that info in one place where I could easily access it.

"Sage 100 Standard Edition - Not so useful"

What do you like best?

Nothing. If you are looking for business/accounting software DO NOT buy Sage until you look at other ones.

What do you dislike?

It is frustrating navigating thru this software. Having to go back three steps to start over on the different modules doesn't make sense. This software has the capabilities to be more useful but it feels like a step above dos.

Recommendations to others considering the product

In my opinion, there are too many other software options out there to settle for using Sage. Even Quickbooks is ten times easier to use then Sage. Sage is so frustrating trying to navigate throughout the software. The reports are week and you have to try to understand their acronyms.

"Great program for all in one Accounting/Payroll!"

What do you like best?

This program is very easy to learn and run. It is great for Accounts payables, receivables, printing checks, and running payroll. Also prints reports after each update so that you always have a great paper trail for audit support of all your actions. You can also set up different users to have different functions so that you can merge files and see what each person has put into the system. Easy to make corrections if needed!!

What do you dislike?

Not much not to like. Takes some training to get used to but the good thing is you can't really make a mistake you can't fix.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I like that everything for Payroll can be set, and that all the figures for hours can just be put in and everything will be configured automatically. Taxes are figured automatically and reports are printed so that all you have to do is verify and pay them.

"CRM-Start Up Option"

What do you like best?

Sage was the first CRM system I had ever worked with at the time I was introduced to it. It was really easy to get accustom to its functionality. A year after working with it, I was asked to take over Admin duties for the system which I truly enjoyed. I felt the customization options for new field creation and the layout for specific pages, etc., were really easy to complete.

What do you dislike?

The system got to a point where it simply did not meet our business needs any longer. We looked into upgrading the system but the cost of the upgrade was outweighed in comparison to the price of a brand new system...till this day I'm not sure if we made the right choice.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Since we were looking to enhance the integration of our business process details and strategies those are the items that I would focus on enhancing.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were developing a true CRM system not just a large roll-a-dex of contacts. we were looking to explore things like hierarchy's, parent accounts, integrating customer support tickets, contract details, the list could go on and on. We did look to see if we could implement such options into our current system, but by then we had already made the decision to bring in a new system all together.

"Sage 100 review."

What do you like best?

I am not a big fan of sage. It is crystal report based and not flexible. Like many software of this kind it is geared toward subcontractors.

What do you dislike?

Double entry. It is built for accounting and the pm side is not good. I also wish it was web based and played better with other databases.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Web based. More flexible platform. Play nicer with Salesforce and other database software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it to give reports and pm projects. It is used to manage and sort costs.

"Was a great software, but no real evolution since many many many years (French version)"

What do you like best?

Sage 100 ERP is different in all countries. So beware, the french version that I used might no be the same as for the english, german...

But this software didn't evolve since 2000. I was a user from 1999 to 2002, and at the time it was one of the best : fast, lots of features, easily customizable...

It was really a the reference in the market.

When I used it again, it was still the same 10 years after :(

What do you dislike?

It didn't evolve... Sage stopped developping the products, and just maintain them.

No real web feature, no real evolution inside the product...

Recommendations to others considering the product

The french version is still good, but it is no more the reference in the market. It should evolve, but sage seems to have no willing to continue de local products.

For the same pricing, you should consider web or more evolving products.

"Time Entry Tool"

What do you like best?

There is no part of this tool that I can describe as being good. It satisfies the time entry needs, no more no less.

What do you dislike?

My interaction with this tool is limited to time entry. The means to do this is cumbersome and not easy to see what you're doing. The tool makes you trip over a weird scheme of entry boxes. If I make a mistake entering time, I have to go to another part of the tool to see a report of what I've entered so far and then sometimes enter negative time. Additionally, we use this tool through Citrix and on occasion it will refuse to open. It's not clear to me if this is due to Citrix or not.

Recommendations to others considering the product

My experience with the tool has not given me reason to recommend it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Time entry and probably more, but any other functions this fills, I'm not a user of.

"Frustratingly slow and cumbersome"

What do you like best?

I'm struggling to think of something here... I can't think of anything I actually like. Maybe the fact that everything's integrated (just like any ERP tool is)?

What do you dislike?

The time tracking tool is very inefficient. There is no history saved, so if I'm working on the same job codes every day/week, I have to enter them in every single time. When you have 10-15 job codes to enter, it takes a frustratingly long time to enter the information. Especially combined with its slow searching. Every character you type generates a new query to the database, so you end up flooding your own servers with searches - completely unnecessary, and it bogs everything down!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Look elsewhere if you have multiple offices that need to connect to this tool. The performance of Sage 100 was so bad, we had to set up a virtual server for users to connect through (via citrix) to make it usable.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our company uses this for employee time tracking and shipping/receiving and billing.

"Good mid-level accounting solution, particularly for manufacturers"

What do you like best?

Low hardware requirements, easy to use, product updates come out regularly. There are many third party apps to customize the system, and there is also a large network of Master Developers to make custom additions.

What do you dislike?

Product updates can be buggy, sometimes large changes to the system are made with little notice

Recommendations to others considering the product

The reseller you choose is very important - the implementation and support of the project are pretty much entirely up to the reseller.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Integrating accounting with manufacturing software needs, such as keeping Bills of Materials in the same system as Purchase Orders for ease of use.

"Sage in AP"

What do you like best?

I like the best the ability to locate things so easily; I also like how it pre warns you, and then confirms when values are off.

What do you dislike?

The manual switch from lines to header is such a drag; being able to just hit enter would make much more easier when working in a timely manner.

If that's what your company uses, learn all the tricks and you will work smarter, not Harder.

"Excellent Product for any Growing Company"

What do you like best?

Creating the database takes time, but once it is up and running, it is reliable. Reporting functions are fully customizable but can be a bit too much for the average user to figure out. Thankfully the Sage Knowledgebase/Sage City has a plethora of workarounds, hints and tips that makes a world of a difference. The Sage Community is likely the most valuable aspect of the product.

What do you dislike?

The extensive cost of licensing considering that the platform is largely user-driven and that you pay for product support on top of the license

There is a lot of customization that can be done and a lot of useful information that can be retrieved

With the ability to customize, you need to know how to do it. Without the help of companies who specialize specifically in the program it is almost impossible to do. It is also expensive to hire these people.

"Sage - no bells and whistles but gets the job done"

What do you like best?

Sage can be as simple or as complex as you need it to be. We don't have an order centric system and that is fine. It allows us to connect our excel data to sage and is very useful with treasury management, procurement, and A/R processing.

What do you dislike?

The interface is a little outdated and we can't figure out a way to go paperless while using sage.

I think our product support from Sage is really great! There are tons of features we could still get use our of and if you put in the time I think there is a ton of potential out there for Sage to streamline your Operations

"Sage 100 ERP Sucks!"

What do you like best?

I like the fact that it keeps track of inventory.

What do you dislike?

You have a limit as to how many characters you can type in. That leaves you guessing a lot as to what the product is when you have many items with similar names at the beginning of the title. If you are entering orders for customers you sometimes have to click on 10 items to get the full description to pop up before you can find the one you are looking for.

What do you like best?

Project Costing and Job Costing: Prior to using Sage 100, we were using Quick Books. At the end of the project, it normally takes us more than 2 hours per project for project final costing. Using Sage 100 significantly reduce the time on Project closing.

What do you dislike?

Batch processing makes some daily tasks very slow. If you have multiples batches, it's slow to process. Allows for supervisor review before posting, but slows down real time information and data analysis.

Timely and accurate report on committed cost on specific project. Prior to using Sage 100, we were using Quick Books. At the end of the project, it normally takes us more than 2 hours per project for project final costing. Using Sage 100 significantly reduce the time on Project closing. In addition, crew on the job site does not know how much they are spending on a project, and end up we had surprises on the amount of money we have spent. Implementing Sage 100 provides workers and project managers idea of how much they are spending on specific line item and to make sure we are not going over-budget on any of the project without knowing it upfront. We are able to keep track of our cost more closely and in turn benefiting us on earning the same amount of money and profit as we expected, and sometimes more than what we have expected. With the job costing, we are able to use the historical data to estimate better on future projects.

"Use as accounting software at IT Solutions Firm"

What do you like best?

Sage has a well structured general ledger module, input of both AP and journal entries are easy. All reports in Sage are Crystal which makes for very good reporting results. As a small company the ability to create a purchase order straight from a sales order is crucial. The less time we take, the better.

What do you dislike?

A key missing function is to be able to track serial numbers, we have to use Lotus notes for that which can be difficult at best and causes issues with not being able to track all inventory in one system.

What do you like best?

"Sage 100 ERP is a very feature rich, robust, low cost system. "

What do you like best?

Sage 100 ERP can be used by almost any type of business organization. The system has a low initial cost and yearly support & maintenance. It has many different modules from accounting to distribution to manufacturing. It comes with many standard reports, along with Crystal Reports and Sage Intelligence report writers. Sage software offers many Mobil cloud based apps that leverage the data in the system to better manage sales, inventory, credit cards, service, billing and payments. There are many additional modules that can be added for CRM, Fixed Assets, Shipping, Document management, EDI, E-commerce, Bar Coding, Multi-company, Multi-currency and many more. In short, it is a system any new or small business can afford, that can really grow and expand with them through their entire life cycle.

What do you dislike?

Sage 100 ERP is a very strong product for accounting, finance and distribution. It can also handle light assembly and manufacturing and job costing. Manufacturing and job costing however is not its strongest set of modules. I wish these modules were stronger and could work together better. This would help some current users, but also open up another whole set of potential users for the system. There are many vendor that do offer some enhancements to these module and also some additional modules. Sage software is aware of their short comings in these areas and is planning on addressing them over the next two years.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need accounting, finance, distribution and light manufacturing then you must consider look at Sage 100 ERP. It is a proven product that has been around for many years. It has low initial cost, is very secure, can accommodate many users and is very expandable and adaptable as your business needs grow. For many companies it is the only system they will ever buy.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have solved the financial, distribution, manufacturing needs of many different type of companies. Some examples include integrating a pet company's current website into a full blown e-commerce site and tying it all together into their Sage 100 ERP system. I had a manufacturer who needed the ability to add and scan bar codes onto their products for both their own internal use and their customers. I had a wine distributor who needed to add bar code scanning to their shipping process. I had a renewal energy company and a rehab hospital who needed to add credit card processing. I had another distributor who needed a way to group similar items together for quantity discounts. All were very happy to be able to solve their needs without having to change software.

"Corporate Controller"

What do you like best?

The versatility of SAGE allows accurate recording of distribution and manufacturing in detail to capture costs accurately. Right clicking on a grey area of a screen allows you to see who accessed the transaction last. Balancing modules monthly ensures accuracy when reporting. Most canned reports provide enough information to management for most research. Analyzing Cash is made easier using the Cash Requirements Report from AP and the Cash Expectation Report in AR.

What do you dislike?

Research could be improved using Drill down. Researching items is often done through multi-screen access rather than clicking to drill down.

Journal entries do not reflect the Main tab description once updated.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The software is logically driven. Modules are specialized for easier user definitions.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

1. We house 11 active and related companies in SAGE. We are often calculating the expense between companies. SAGE allows enough details to sort out the separation for each company.

2. Errors are often glaring. Much of my time is spent making sure financials are correct. We have been able to set up the GL Chart of Accounts to ensure that errors filter out when running reports.

"Good product for high-volume DE or companies under SOX not wanting to allow changes to prior entries"

What do you like best?

Sage 100 is a great product for those companies with a high volume of data entry, especially if you have many users. All entries can be done from the keyboard without having to switch over to the mouse or memorize a lot of keyboard shortcuts, unlike products like Quickbooks or Netsuite, which have different benefits, but quick-entry usability is not really one of them. It also has good controls for when managers must do approval of entry batches.

If you don't want users to be able to go back and change entries, this is also a good choice, as you cannot delete entries once posted--you have to do an opposing entry instead. Makes for a great audit trail if that's what you need.

The entry screens are fairly intuitive for the most part; your journal entries actually look like journal entries, and when inputting comments, it is consistent between modules so that if you are familiar with one, you will be able to tell when making an entry ina different module what will likely appear on the GL--so you know where to put in check line memos vs. GL comments for income statement review later.

Great options when inputting A/P & A/R or C/R for entering on-the-fly items tied to invoices or just putting it into a GL bucket. Can divide up each one as needed.

Reports can be printed short-style or long-style; that is, if you have long descriptions on your journal entries with lots of detail, you can print all of it, but if you want to shorten up your report, you put the important things at the front of all your entries, then the details, so you can print "short version" reports to save paper or just make it more readable.

Excellent reports available by period, to-date, etc. for budget variance analysis.

Good customization for report printing formats--though it can take some trial and error to achieve the result you're looking for!

What do you dislike?

Licensing fees for multiple users can become costly, but if you've got that many users, it's probably a drop in the bucket, relatively speaking. You can have more users than licenses, but they can't all be using at the same time, so you can save a bit if you have shift workers.

The inability to change prior entries can mean that users who think they know how to correct something may only end up making it worse--such as posting an A/P invoice dated 8/31 to a 9/30 entry period, or putting in adjusting entries on the Bank Reconciliation to cover for such an issue. It can be done, but you really have to understand how the system posts each type of entry.

Creating new reports can be cumbersome for those who don't know Crystal Reports REALLY well. Most companies end up outsourcing this work.

The modules work together well, but sometimes it can be frustrating to learn that one little thing you'd like to add is part of an entire module you haven't been using, and implementing the whole thing can be costly or time consuming.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want solidly immutable data with a great audit trail and compartmentalization for your users, this works well. If you are looking to be able to correct entries later (say, you're making recommendations to your small-biz clients for software in which you expect to have to make a fair number of corrections), Quickbooks or Netsuite are better ways to go. With those, you can lock prior months & just keep current periods open until you have corrected everything needed. However, it is a very good product to use if you have multiple companies in-house, as the requirement to switch companies entirely means that you don't mistakenly enter something under the wrong company.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is helpful for speeding up data entry, both for journal entries and for A/P & A/R. Saves man-hours.

Also prevents people from just deleting an entry they didn't understand--improves the process of sa manager asking the user about it first, because they don't want to make a correcting entry only to have to correct THAT entry. Perhaps the original entry was in fact correct!

"Sage 100 ERP Review"

What do you like best?

Sage 100 ERP is a robust software package. Nearly everything within your business can be managed through one, easy to use program. Inventory, accounting, payroll, general ledger, sales orders and packing lists (called picking sheets) are all available for printing or transmitting electronically. It's important to input information on customers, vendors and inventory accurately as the safeguards make it difficult to make changes in the future.

Sage 100 ERP can be easily customized to suit almost any business model and is user friendly.

What do you dislike?

Sage 100 ERP doesn't offer a simple way of changing information once it's been entered and saved.

For instance #1: Inventory number 123456 was entered incorrectly and it should read 12-3456. If you've placed an order under the incorrect number so there's history, you can't change it to the correct number for several months of inactivity. You can get around it by changing the description to read "use part number 12-3456" but it doesn't allow the change.

For instance #2: A long term customer changes ownership and changes their name. Sage 100 ERP makes it difficult to change the customer number to reflect the new name and keep the sales history. By the same token, once a customer number has been inactive for a period of time, they can be deleted but if you assign that same customer number to a new account, the history under the old customer often shows up under the new and it's inaccurate. It's the same under the purchasing for vendor updates. Changes are possible but only under certain circumstances.

If there is a way to send invoices as a group instead of individually, we were never able to make it work. We used the repetitive invoice feature often and it would've been nice to be able to send them out electronically.

For our company, technical support was very expensive and since we were a small business, often had to wait for several issues to need resolution to make it worth the call.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be prepared to use Sage 100 ERP to its fullest potential otherwise you cheat yourself out of the possibilities. It's an excellent software for any size business.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am no longer with the company that utilized this software but it is still an excellent choice. My company didn't use Sage 100 ERP to its fullest potential but it is capable of doing most everything needed for business accounting and ERP. I personally was in charge of sales orders, inventory, purchasing and accounts receivable and it worked well for me. Our controller is able to create reports on profit margins, separate costs and see at a glance what those margins are and make changes as appropriate.

The company has been a Sage customer for a long time; from the old DOS based software to what is available now. It is much more user friendly and robust.

Makes it very easy to manage inventory, acess information quickly and make changes simply.

Take time to explore menus and features to find added benefits for your business.

We are better managing inventory and location of said inventory. Sage makes it easier to log items and find them across many different business locations.

We use the system for our monthly financial process and we are able to close efficiently without any issue with Sage 100 each month. A/P is easy and recurring data is simplified.

Wide variety of features for sales, manufacturing and ability to integrate with other 3rd party products.

What do you dislike?

Based on proprietary Providex database instead of SQL or Oracle to interfacing to it can be difficult. Visual Integrator(VI) for importing data into it is archaic.

Ease of use and ability to take deep dives into accounting when needed

Lack of mobile integration. It seems like everything that should be included in this day and age is a 3rd party or first party add on.

"Old Habits in the company mean we are stuck with this "

What do you like best?

It does the job but has been doing it for years. Sage being the cornerstone of ERP and accounting you know that you are in safe hands and it has good level of security and user control to make sure than non "accounting" users or SME owners submit accurate reporting data.

What do you dislike?

Licence install, not the most attractive user interface, I know this is accounts but but can still look good! We are looking for an alternative for next financial year but habit and comfort in the company and by users need encouragement to change.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is reliable and effective but is not the most user friendly and feature driven system so much depends on the user of the system and what their needs and experience levels are.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

SME accounting solutions and require a system than can be managed and updated by business and commercial rather than financial experts.
