We are a mid size property management company located on the Northshore of Massachusetts. Our condominium client list is a composition of business and residential complexes. The Sage product gives us the flexibility to manage the day to day account activity, along with the accountability and flexibility to oversee the billing aspects which occur as a result of the various service request we receive daily. Our staff consist of management professions, account and billing personnel. Everyone in our organization has exposure to the Sage product even our administrative staff, who are often required to utilize the Sage product to verify client billing and invoices. It is a simple yet effective accounting and administrative product that works well for a company of our size.

Pros

Effective, yet simple to understand and utilize

Cons

Doesn't have the fancy looking categories. It's just plain and simple

Like most accounting products, it was the product I inherited with the position at the company I joined. I have been using it for 10 years and during this time I have found the software is lacking in functionality. Not enough to warrant a change but enough to not recommend it to anyone that requires the basic modules to run a set of accounting books.

Pros

Nothing

Cons

The GL is not linked to the bank rec module. The fact that you need to buy a separate bank rec module is poor. The lack of ability to edit posted entries.

There are better products out there. Having to add on modules to get the system to have what you need adds up quick. The system is behind the times as far as technology. Support is weak. A reseller should know their customers well enough to let them know when a new feature comes out that could apply to their business.

Advice to Others

Make sure you find a good reseller that will give a lot of support and instruction and will make sure they keep you up-to-date on features.

I work in the manufacturing industry, specifically a foundry in Chicago.
Several factors bias my experience with MAS90/Sage 100. I was introduced to the software with no training or reference guide because the woman before me left suddenly and without any documentation. In a certain perspective that speaks well of this product in that simply by internet research and experimentation, as well as a few call to our highly paid "Sage" support line, I have been able to work with the system adequately.
I would love to upgrade to a new version of this Sage product and imagine that it is very likely a much cleaner and straight forward operating system
For instance, the difference between reversing a check and simply reversing the G/L transaction are two different procedures and a third procedure to void a check that has never been issued is a different procedure entirely from voiding a check that you have placed a stop payment on. In a sense, these five distinctions would be ideal for a precise audit trail if the procedures themselves were not extremely complex and vague to distinguish.
The General Leger reports are clear and are in themselves user friendly in offering the opportunity to easily make accrued and adjusting entries.
I would certainly encourage anyone to investigate the newer versions of Sage in consideration of their industry specific needs.
We have not created a direct interface between our receivables data base "Exact" directly into MAS 90 due to the particular need to maintain specific Alloy/Customer information and our small company simply lacks the time and technical understanding to do so.
Again my situation is severely biased due to my particular circumstances and I believe a newer version of Sage may very likely be an excellent ERP.

Pros

If I can figure out a highly antiquated version of their product without internal direction and assistance, I suspect the newer versions of Sage can only be fat superior.

Cons

A complete mire of ambiguity when it comes to the Accounts Payable component in this ancient version by Sage:MAS 90

Advice to Others

Look in to the current versions of SAGE. I have high hopes that a current versions may prove exceptional if they are appropriate to your industry needs.

This software would be great for a small sales company but we have overgrown its usefulness. Good ERP for the money.

Pros

Fast and useful information at your fingertips. Easy to navigate and makes training a breeze.

Cons

I have more international companies that use KG over LBS, I wish the software had a live converting or sliding weight conversion for inventory and sales orders.

Advice to Others

I would say add a manufacturing add-on but they do offer it for a price.

Keymont Construction has used Sage 100 Contractor for over 10 years. I have always found it easy to use and to navigate through the menus. I like that the reports can be edited to fit the needs of the company. I also like that there are many options available when printing reports. The other wonderful thing about Sage 100 Contractor is the Customer Service. I have worked with many customer service representatives through the years and they have always been patient and very helpful. I especially like the representative, she was very helpful when I had to install the new program last year and I honestly could not have done it without her help and expertise. With the change to Windows 10 came some new quirks and everyone at Customer Service was so helpful and knew right away how to resolve our problems. I would like to give 10 Stars to the Customer Service representatives who have helped me through the years. Thank you for all your help.

Pros

Ease of use and variety of reports.

Cons

It runs very slowly with Windows 10 but that might just be our computer and not the program itself. It also seems to have more quirks with Windows 10.

Advice to Others

I would highly recommend Sage 100 Contractor but I would not use Windows 10 with it.

I was told that this program would print AIA forms and all certified payroll forms. After installing and working on for a year to set up
It didn't print the AIA form correctly and you also had to but the blank forms. The certified payrolls were not for different state, city & county agents. After speaking to SAGE support and where I purchased it they both told me to call my rep who helped me set it up. So, in other words, they wanted me to pay someone to fix the issues!
I have requested a FULL refund and still have not heard anything! VERY unhappy with SAGE.

I have used "Master Builder" since 1993. I love this product. We are not a large contractor, and yet we have always received the best customer support.

Pros

The software has always suited our needs perfectly. It is easy to customize reports. The tech support is great.

Cons

For such a large company, I would love it if the hours for tech support were longer, and included Saturday. The website has always been a bit clunky for me, although it has gotten better over the last couple of years.

Advice to Others

Buy it!

I have been working with Sage Master Builder for over 12 years. It is a very easy system to learn, but at the same time, gives detailed information in the reports that you require. The customer service is excellent and is very knowledgeable and friendly when interacting with them.
We have looked at other software systems, but for the price and resources, this is the best way to go.

Pros

Easy to learn, makes sense when posting and pulling reports, customer service.

Cons

Nothing!

Advice to Others

For a contractor, it is wonderful to work with, easy to understand, easy to pull reports, etc. However, at the same time, the information that you have is detailed and professional.

Eventually we had to abandon the software

Pros

Out of the box Sage 100 without customization is powerful for those who are needing little beyond what the application offers. There is also endless possibilities for custom reporting.

Cons

Our company is very specialized and almost everything we needed was eventually customized. The problem is if those modules aren't available they have to be built and can be extremely expensive! Crystal Reoprts are also not intuitive

I used to use Sage 100 back in the day when it was Peachtree. It's since been renamed to Sage 100 and had a modern refresh. Sage 100 is recommended for businesses with revenue around $50 million. It is considered ERP - enterprise resource planning, but I'm familiar with the accounting aspect of it.

Pros

For accounting this software is intuitive. It is easy to use and has a lot of sophisticated features.

Cons

It isn't optimized for a lot of qualitative data. It will take an external module or upgraded more expensive version.

Advice to Others

Strongly recommended for small and medium sized businesses.

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!!
