"Sage 300 user for 10 years "

What do you like best?

If you have a financial background you can mind most of what you need to do.

What do you dislike?

Sage as a company is slow to adapt. They are now offering a cloud solution but it is not truly cloud, It just a subscription pay model. The technology the system is built feels old and not user friendly, some things take more steps than needed. The only practical remote user functionality depends on remote desktop server. There is no web/HTML solution. The Sage CRM integration is terrible and feel like two separate system with very little communication between the two. The reporting and sage intelligence are complicated and clunky.

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

ERP and CRM solution. I would love to switch but it requires too much resources.

"Way too clunky and too many bandaids"

What do you like best?

The software has a lot of tools. The support system is great. You pay for it, but it is worth it because you need it.

What do you dislike?

There are so many add-ons that a lot of the program doesn't work well together because it has all been added at different times. It isn't easy to update the financial reports or any reports in general. The FSD is completely outdated. The Crystal Reports are great and easy to use. They give more functionality to the reporting.

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

There are too many ways to customize that don't intertwine well together long term. WE have run into a lot of issues because of original customizations.

What ERP Systems solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Meets my needs and nothing more"

What do you like best?

Sage was recommended to once implemented it was easy to use from day one. Fast and simple to use. clear useful data which instantly made a positive impact on our business. it saved us time and money within its first month of use brilliant software a must-have for any company.

What do you dislike?

Creating custom import file for Sage to import for Accounts Payable was difficult at times. Import utility wasn't as dynamic as we needed. Dynamism is extremely important to me.

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

We keep our books up to date very easily with Sage 300 ERP. There are only a few drawbacks. I really enjoy it for its price.

"Sage ERP for integration"

What do you like best?

I like that Sage ERP allows our construction department to solely work within procore and can push all of our information over to Accounting who uses Sage to view the information on their end. Allows everyone to use the program they are more comfortable with.

What do you dislike?

It doesn't pull all of the information there are a few small details that get lost in translation. Also, at this point we cannot push invoicing information from Sage to Procore.

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

The communication between the Accounting and Construction Department software. Since we have implemented Both Sage 300 ERP and Procore, things have been moving a lot smoother.

"Use for accounting class"

What do you like best?

Fairly easy to built chart of accounting and input AP payment/AR receipts.

The ability to print every possible financial reports and customized report (although it is very difficult)

What do you dislike?

Can be difficult to navigate at first

Will take a great deal of time when first setting up information such as vendors, customers, tax rate, and etc.

I wish there is a feature such as auto-backup before posting batches, otherwise you have to take 30 seconds to save anytime before posting a batch.

Can also be difficult to track down errors.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Can be very intimidating at first, however once get use it, will be fairly easy to use.

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

I was given a project for a local tire company, that we had to build chart of account and record transactions.

Sage 300 ERP allow us to do all the accounting task in one complete software.

"Sage 300 ERP sound Accounting and Operational software"

Investment in new interface and functionality and partners that are providing ISV solutions is tremendous

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

We intially had many systems and many data silos. Sage 300 brought the data and systems together.

"Considering new versions"

What do you like best?

The stability of the Sage product in unquestionable, and it is easy for trained users to use.

What do you dislike?

It is not SAAS based, which is the direction we are looking to move. Due to lack of support and lack of product knowledge, we export data to far too many Excel reports instead of doing them within the product.

Recommendations to others considering the product

We are on an old version (2014) of Sage 300. I would consider at minimum 2018, but prefer to suggest the SAAS based offers.

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

For the general running of our business, it works well, but we need to move to a new version of either the same 300 products, or a new SAAS based solution.

"Serves its purpose"

What do you like best?

Sage 300 requires you to fully understand the software in order to do what is required to do. The features are all there but you simply need to know to use it. It takes a little getting used to but once you've figured out the tricks this software becomes one of my top 3.

What do you dislike?

It can be difficult to find certain tools and hard to perform certain tasks. You really need to know the software in order to utilize its strengths. I dont find it simple to use, it can be a little overwhelming.

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

Recording transactions and financial audits. The benefits are that It organises the numbers the way you want to see it.

"Overall, it is a good choice for small business"

What do you like best?

You can design the financial reports based on your personal needs in intelligence reporting module.

The price structure is attractive

What do you dislike?

In each module, there is a report function, like running AP/AR aging reports, inventory valuation list. But the export to excel is a not very user friendly. I have to save as a CVS file, and then copy and paste the columns I need to a excel file.

You have to run the intelligence report again from the beginning if any new entries posted.

After you post the entries, you can not edit any more. If you want to make change, you have to do a reversal entry.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are running a small business, you can choose sage 300 ERP. It can satisfy your needs and you don't have to make long term commitment. The payment options is also attractive. Pay in advance for one year or more, you can get discount. Or you can just pay month by month if you like.

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

We used AR,AP, Inventory, Order entry and purchase order, GL modules and the reporting.

"Sage If you Know"

What do you like best?

Sage is a good product if you have the proper training on how to use the platform.. We were not trained properly and had to bring in a consultant to help train us.

What do you dislike?

The search feature and the options available to use it could be better utilized. When seaching it usually asks if you want to broaden your search. If I am searching then it should lists all results, not inquire if I need to see more results.

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

Streamlining processes and trying to make our processes more efficient. Benefits are the live support options and internet tools available.

"Long-Standing Construction Based CRP and Document Management getting long in the tooth"

What do you like best?

The complete Sage 300 (formerly Timberline) package includes almost all modules needed for a Small to Medium sized Construction Business. From a complete Suite of Accounting modules all the way down to the nuts and bolts of Project Management and Field Reports I like that this suite can be put in and become a go to/catch all for the standard construction business.

What do you dislike?

Two things that would be tied on the dislike scale. 1) The GUI is very out dated and is very "clunky". 2) This software still used the Prevasive Database product which is very slow with constant calls between the server and workstation.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Not only is this product a bit long on the tooth as to its speed and appearance, I am not seeing a real fast ramp up of cloud based offerings from Sage. They do currently have a product with allows mobile devices to check reports but until they start offering more of a "Project Room" type product, where both employees and clients can collaborate, I am not sure how long they will stay pertinent.

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

Using this suite, in conjunction with their Document Management add-on, our organization has streamlined management of each project from the estimating phase all the way to electronic storage of all documents related to the project. It has taken the problem of different departments using random software packages to seeing the company being unified using Sage for most ERP functions.

"Sage vs Other ERP"

What do you like best?

The ability to design report using Excel and Crystal Report is probably the best part about Sage.

Drill down from each window to next.

What do you dislike?

Having experiences in use of other accounting systems, Sage history query windows are not the best. Most of times when looking for particular transaction in a particular month, Sage does not allow to be more specific. I know that it is mid to lower end of Sage ERP systems, however this one feature would be very useful if it was included in all Sage products.

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

Stream lining processes. Accurate results for quarterly reports.

"Not epic."

What do you like best?

We have combined Sage with Print Boss to be able to send statements in batches at month end.

What do you dislike?

Not intuitive at all. Very difficult to use. Even with an accounting degree it is difficult to navigate and understand.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Find another solution.

We are actually switching from Sage because we believe other softwares offer more benefits.
