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.

Beware!

We have been using Sage (Master Builder) for about 14 years. It works great for job costing, receivable billings and just overall book keeping.

Advice to Others

It is a great product but it may take you a while to learn everything is can do.

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.

Sage is a great product. Ease of use between different modules, more features than we even know how to use.

Pros

Full service product.

Cons

Would love the ability to add fields to job folders, and more ease in creating new reports.

Advice to Others

If you use Sage go to a Summit you will learn about features you never knew existed.

I have been using Sage 100 Contractor for over 15 years. I really like the total integration from estimate to accounting. Change orders are easily prepared and sent out to both clients and subs. Reports are handled at the touch of a button. If you need something customized their experts are top notch.

Pros

Integration of estimates to jobs to accounting. Tracking of the subcontracts & change orders. Support is THE BEST! I have never had a problem that was not resolved on the first call.

Cons

Scheduling module is not great or easy to use.

Advice to Others

There is a learning curve but once you are over the hump it is smooth sailing.

Overall, this is a good product that meets our needs well. We don't use all of the features to the fullest, and that's on us. The job cost module is extremely helpful because we are a T&M contractor - without good job costs, we'd be sunk.

Pros

Ease of data entry for payroll and general records

Cons

Still have a lot to learn about the connections between takeoffs, budgets, and assemblies.

Advice to Others

Give yourself sufficient time to learn the product features.

Sage 100 is super easy to use, easy to learn and is, overall, a great software. I used to use other software and Sage 100 is so much better. It only cuts joint checks and spits out awesome job cost reports. I highly recommend it.

Pros

It's easy to use

Cons

I wish it had a good joint check report. I had to build my own.

Advice to Others

Use it.

I worked with several other accounting and job costing software and Sage has proved to be one of the most user-friendly. The software was easy to learn and implement. The online classes offered are information and well worth the time to learn the software. Customer service is one of the best! They are always friendly, helpful and make sure they have solved your problem before closing the case. Other than high traffic times such as the first of the year, wait time is minimal. With a third party software that works within Sage, payroll taxes are a breeze! Reports are through, customizable and easily exported to Excel.

Pros

User friendly
Customizations
Reports and Queries are easy to use once you get the hang of them. Creating queries or reports to access any information needed is a huge plus!
Direct deposit for payroll and vendors is extremely easy to use.
Customer Service experience is very positive. I love the chat option and also the access to the knowledge base. Easy access to the help file online, by hitting F1 you can read about every aspect of the software.
The general ledger audit and payroll audit features help to ensure the integrity of your data.

Cons

The biggest adjustment we had to make when moving to Sage was the check writing process. In order for a check to be applied to a specific vendor, you have to create an invoice. You have the option to just write a check, but it will not transfer that information to the vendor's record.

Advice to Others

Take advantage of the online classes, access the user guide to better understand the processes.

I have been using MasterBuilder since the 1980's, before it was even Windows based, when it was DOS, before the mouse. I have worked for many different kinds of construction companies in different states. I recommended this software when starting at two new companies, and it was purchased for the management of multi-million dollar projects by both. It works well for very large, large, small and phased projects. This has consistently been the most user-friendly and comprehensive software for the construction industry I have ever worked with. I have been in the industry for 37 years.

Pros

Everything

Cons

End of year and closing changes.

Advice to Others

Try it. It simplifies payroll, payables, receivables, taxes....everything.

We use Sage 100 primarily for GL, AR, and AP. The software is full featured and high powered. The modules interface seamlessly. Sage offers multiple methods for importing transactions. Critical for effective use of the software and reporting functionality is IT support which is familiar with the program. We use an outside vendor - we do not interact with Sage directly, nor do we know what types of options may be available directly through the software publisher.

Pros

Long list of features, modules interface seamlessly.

Cons

Must have competent support internally or externally in order to get the best use of the program.

I was new to the industry and this software in April. The learning curve was quite steep, as I was used to using Apple and Microsoft products.

Pros

I love the job costing and job labor reports. When I have issues, the customer service is quite good--although hold times are often long and the callback feature doesn't seem to work with my phone.

Cons

I'm used to Apple products where there are 3 or 4 different commands or ways to do the same function. There are still many functions I haven't been able to figure out. This software was purchased to help with estimating, but the owner found it so cumbersome and unfriendly to use, that he gave up using it for estimating and take-offs and went back to his old way w/google sheets. The search functions seem archaic.

Advice to Others

I feel this product would be great for a larger firm. We are only 6 employees doing residential remodel and new builds. I've heard of other cloud-based software packages that can be used with Quick Books that would better suit our needs--more user-friendly and cost-effective across multiple devices.

Fairly easy to install and learn. Good features although some have limited capabilities. Customizing simple reports are easy, however, extensive knowledge is required for extensive reports creation. Support for customized reports is basically zero.

Pros

Ease of use

Cons

Customizing reports

Advice to Others

Make sure you get all your problems and customization done during your implementation schedule, otherwise if you need something special, there will be an additional cost to get answers.
