Great flexibility

What do you like best?

Sage X3 is great for multi-company, multi-site, multi-currency, multi-language, multi-legislation implementations. It is fully web-based, and system performance is generally quite good. It has very good intercompany transaction capabilities, and handles the "behind the scenes" multi-currency bookkeeping extremely well. While the built-in financial reporting is very limited, there are plenty of reporting tools out there - and since X3 stores the data in a very detailed manner, these reporting tools can display your data however you want. It is an incredibly flexible software which can be configured to perform very complex transactions with a high level of automation.

What do you dislike?

Error messages, when they do occur, are often quite cryptic and don't necessarily help guide you to resolution; also Sage's support for X3 is less than stellar. However, both of these issues Sage is aware of and working to remedy; it takes time with something as complex as X3, but progress is being made.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Have an experienced Sage Partner help you through the implementation. Take your time planning the implementation, plan it well - test it well - train well. It is extremely complex and a large undertaking. But if your requirements are fairly complex, then it is a really good product to answer your needs. But don't rush it!

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

Running multiple companies (some related, some not) - and currencies - from within the same accounting environment, allowing users to perform tasks seamlessly from one company/site/currency to another... Since implementing Sage X3, our accounting staff has realized a considerable improvement in efficiency in our complex accounting environment. And we are continuing to improve on this, as we gradually learn to take advantage of more and more that Sage X3 has to offer.

Sage X3 provides the bend and flex customization that other platforms miss

What do you like best?

Our ability to tweak our environment, almost on the fly, has allowed us to rapidly and effectively adjust our operations as our organization has grown and evolved.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the overwhelming possibilities X3 provides presents a "paralysis by analysis" situation for us. Because X3 is so versatile, it has almost bottomless options.

Recommendations to others considering the product

As with all software, be prepared for the initial investment of not just the software, but a true IMPLEMENTATION! Skimping on implementation costs up front only delay growing pains later, and ultimately cost your progress and productivity. Make sure your budget it adequate for the "all in" cost of whatever ERP solution you choose.

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

By using Sage X3, we have been able to realize rapid growth, efficient maneuverability, effective changes... overall just a progressive approach to scalability and best practice.

Great software for manufacturing companies

What do you like best?

The ease for customization. The web interface is simple and clean and is being improved at each new update. After the firsts trainnings your IT team will be able to use the customizations that you need.

What do you dislike?

For the users could be a little strange to migrate from a desktop app to a web browser app.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Creat a really good Drawing of what you are going to implement and what ypu really need. Don´t use tools from X3 that you dont going to use.

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

Sales and Purchase Order management. Now we can control all the purchsases and keep the track of them and see the real value of our indoor and outdooor stock

Sage X3, inexpensive, but you get what you pay for.

What do you like best?

Pricing was the best option, as this was software Sage purchased and put their name on.

What do you dislike?

Complicated. The entire sub construct was in code and none of the modules are written out as programs. All users have to know their 6 code to understand where they are making changes. Users suffered extreme difficulty to adapt to the software vs. Excel.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You get what you pay for. I do hope Sage has further rewarded this ERP with the correct means and english translation. Otherwise, the product did fail to meet requirements for the business.

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

ERP, a cheap ERP for financial and material tracking. It worked for this purpose- however the ability for users to adapt to a friendly point/click solution was near impossible.

Flexible, easy to use ERP software

What do you like best?

It is very user friendly and a very innovative interface that allows for easy use. Was rather simple installation as whole process took roughly two months and the learning curve for users who would be dealing with it was also very short as most were able to pick right up on it. Very flexible as well for different data implementation.

What do you dislike?

I disliked when shopping for software's for our needs it was required to get a quote for the price instead of instant pricing so it required a lot of effort just to get an idea of what it would cost for us to implement. Other than that, not too many other negatives.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Would highly recommend giving it a try. You will quickly see the benefits of the system and should provide with with a very quick return on investment. Also the support group is very responsive when it comes to any questions you should have so you dont really have to fear much when going into this.

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

The software allowed us a new solid way to manage our whole operation from production, customer service, sales and management. It really provides a solid ERP system, just is a little pricey though, but worth it I'd say.

Sage Review

What do you like best?

Product is user friendly once you get used to it. I used Sage software for inputting AP/AR invoices in an accounting/HR office. This was the software that was being used when I started working there. So far, I have found it to be easy to learn and helpful with what I use it for. I think that the customer service is excellent because they really take the time to explain things that you are having difficulty with.

What do you dislike?

It took a little while to get used to, but once I did things ran a bit more smoothly. We use Sage mainly for AP/AR invoices and keeping track of our vendors. Running reports isn't the best. We do not use this software for solving issues.
