Great for Larger Companies, Not for Small Businesses

What do you like best?

You can scale it meet the heavy needs of larger corporations, but it also works for medium sized business. Gives great internal control and reporting for audit purposes. It makes processing a large amount of data faster through batches and automatic data entry. Each module is designed to best suit that particular task, whether it's Payables, Receivables, or Purchase Orders. Works great with clients that have many accounts or treasury management products. It also has detailed inventory tracking which is absolutely essential for any manufacturer.

What do you dislike?

It's detail-heavy, and quite cumbersome, for the average small business. Workflow is best suited for a company with dedicated roles, not a one or two person team. Tasks are segment into modules, so navigating from task to task is harder than other programs. While G/L tasks are generally straight forward, it does make cash reconciliations and banking transactions a little choppy. If you're not used to batch transactions, it could be a lot of steps to accomplish simple tasks. Definitely not for smaller businesses with little data volume.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be prepared to invest time and money into this product. While it's a great product, it's not a turn-key program.

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

Internal controls have improved through the use of workflow approvals and user role permissions. The program works well for those in a dedicated position such as Accounts Payable or Sales and Customer Service. Streamlines the manufacturing process with Sales Order, Work Order, Bill of Materials, and Material Requirement Planning Modules. Also directly integrates with other Sage products like Sage Fixed Assets, which makes depreciation a breeze.

Good But We Need Better If Not Best

What do you like best?

I like that it can accommodate 3rd party modules.

What do you dislike?

The system is not Smart or intuitive. I experienced some data were not flowing from one module to another causing some errors or an extra work to redo transactions.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Sage 500 ERP is good enough but there are better tools. If you are on a budget, you can consider this and get value for your money. If you have more budget allocated, you may consider others before settling for this.

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

I am using this for Accounts Receivable and Revenue Recognition. This has helped us in recording and monitoring Invoices, Payments, and Outstanding Balances.

What ERP Systems solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

This software needs change

What do you like best?

It is good for stock control, for project management and for the creation of purchase orders.

What do you dislike?

Every change needs to be done by Sage (it's like you have 0 control). Their customer service is quite a disappointment if we consider the license cost. Most of the times they couldn't help us and they were just offering more add-ons to fix it our issues.

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

I solved my stock issues, I was able to control my stocks better, and the creation of purchase orders and receiving was good as well.

Can be very complicated and not compatible with MAC

What do you like best?

I like how you can see all sales order information and history of a product in the system.

What do you dislike?

I don't like that you have to pull many reports to get the information you need. It is very frustrating. Also, I use a MAC and it is not compatible so I have to remote into a PC and log in through there.

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

We are able to have all manufacturing, sales orders, inventory, etc. in one place.
