    Worth an investment to do away with spreadsheets and digest the finance material into one working solution.

    Pros

    We deployed sage into our working environment to build upon our existing finance packages and make our accounting and controlling process easier to manage. The ERP solution adapted well, database migration was simple, and customer support was excellent.

    Cons

    A very modular system and can break easily if not managed well. Some technical guidance needed to implement. We encountered some database migration issues over version control. However a call to support resolved this for us.

    Easy Reporting. Can send different for different uses. Hotels want certain information different than a our Corp Investment Team.

    Pros

    I love the ability to get the information immediately. I like the report setup and the ability to customize reports for different groups with out alot of hassle. Also Acumen does our support and they are fantastic when needed.

    Cons

    It took our staff a few months to feel comfortable about the change in software but after a year using it they find it easier than previous software.

    Cons

    The pricing tend to be on the expensive end. The technical support still has ample room to improve.

    - Lots of different reporting

    - Once you know how to use it, it is easy to use.

    Cons

    - Does not work on a Mac. I have to remote in to a PC to use it on my laptop.
    - I wish the reporting worked where you can run everything in one report and select what you needed. I tend to have to run multiple reports and do vlookups.

    Cons

    there is no many experts on sage 300 in the city so all the training and stuff has to be over the phone or computer, its hard to modify the reports structure

    Would definitely purchase!

    Pros

    I’ve used a lot of their products. My favorite was Peachtree but this one was a good second. Very sound and reliable.

    Cons

    It wasn’t as user friendly as I had hoped. Navigation was a little challenging but after about a month it got much easier.

    Pros

    If you used Timberline before, you'll love this. It's basically the exact same thing, just web based. It is a complete software package, and can do everything you want it to do. We run a multi-trade, construction company on it with no issues except...

    Cons

    It's web based. This is the programs only fault, but it's a big one. Do yourselves a favor, and get a program that actually runs off your own hardware. The internet is too finicky, and it allows them to blame your own internet security any time something goes wrong. We have issues with connectivity several times a week. Also there is a huge delay in the use of functions. As I said above, it's EXACTLY the same as Timberline was, but since the programs functionality isn't on my local machine...a click that used to open something nearly instantly, now takes 15-20 seconds. No amount of faster internet is going to bring it down to local hardware speed.

    Pros

    The ability to quickly search through data using conditions and parameters is what I like most. If you're unsure of how to retrieve data, the Knowledgebase gives a wealth of How-to information.

    Cons

    While you can customize a tab with specific fields, you cannot organize those fields. A new field is automatically added to the bottom. If you want to regroup fields at a later date, it is not an option. However, it did not prevent me from using this tool.

    Pros

    Sage 300 is a fairly easy accounting software to learn, especially if you are required to train persons within your company. The report feature is quite good with lots of option for creating charts. This is a good tool to invest in if you want to take your business to the next step. The installation of the client side application is easy, with a few click and the application is installed. System Administrators will have no problems deploying this application.

    Cons

    The application user interface needs an overall to a more modern looking interface. Sage 300 interface does not scale well with high resolution monitors because the menu buttons become very smaller as the resolution increases.

    Ultimate the primary reasons we upgraded to Sage 300 were to automate the receiving of EDI orders from our largest customers (Walmart, Amazon, etc) and to facility an automated shipping label generation process and it has accomplished those things relatively well.

    Pros

    It makes things like receiving and bulk printing sales orders via EDI channels much faster and easier than they were before during our 20 year run with Sage BusinessWorks.

    Cons

    It's made some things much easier, in fact things that we needed to become easier in order to continue in business, but has added a layer of complexity to manual order processing functions making these much more difficult to manage. The consensus at the office is that BusinessWorks was easier to use for purposes like keying in orders, invoicing orders manually and then bulk printing or emailing those invoices, etc.

    Pros

    It was easy to navigate and creating custom dashboards was helpful for the majority of our users and their roles.

    Cons

    There was so much. The database was a mess as far as naming conventions. Costing was not uniform across the platform. We had selected Standard cost for the whole system then later found out that many of our transactions were using weighted moving average to calculate cost anyway and that we could not change it. We had to add so many third party modules and workarounds. We are selecting a new ERP.

    Pros

    Sage lets us easily build chats of our accounting files and projects and input our payments/receipts in one place that everyone can access no matter where or when. There are some great features once you learn how to use the program and get used to some of the shortcuts that will help you overcome being afraid of navigating this program.

    Cons

    As I sort of mentioned above, this program is OK at what it does but it can seem a little bulky and can be tough to navigate for newer users who are unfamiliar with the program. Training new users can be a daunting task and time consuming but once they get it, this will make your life easier.

    Pros

    Standardization. We were doing a lot of process work through excel, word, email, etc. This forced us to standardize how we operated and gave our clients a consistent experience over multiple projects. Job costing is capable of being more accurate than we need.

    Cons

    Lack of significant improvements to the software given the annual support and maintenance amount paid. Features tend to be minor with more significant improvements coming in the form of additional optional products for purchase.
