Sage fixed assets has the capability to add and track several data points, which can be customized by the company. Photos and notes for each asset can be added to the asset file and retrieved at any time.
Certain data cannot be added to the main view grid, but can be added to reports, and vice versa. It's difficult to compare two different reports that pull two different sets of data because some data points are only added to one report versus another.

It works fine if you want to wait 10 minutes for a report to upload. Of course, it's faster than having to do it on excel myself but I feel like they take advantage of that fact and make the software just shy of garbage so you will pay to use it.
It keeps me from doing it by hand.
It's tempermentall and shuts down frequently.
The calculations are frequently a little off.
Too expensive for the time I have to put into it.
Yeah it works. And from what I hear other products are just as bad.
Bradley from Glidewell Specialties Foundry Co, Inc.
Being able to customize reports as well as export to formats such as excel has been a life saver. We have never had any problems with data loss or calculations being inaccurate. Once you get passed some of the clunky ways it wants you to do things it becomes a pretty powerful way to organize your fixed assets.
The UI and navigating within the UI could use a lot of work. They seem to steadily improve it as they release new versions but it is still pretty clunky and takes a little bit of getting used to.
As with any other software, take a look at around three other programs and compare features between them. If you can get a hold of a free limited trial that is even better.

Ease of use, even before training. There are many help tools that actually provide good assistance. The software provides many custom fields that the user can define how they want them to be presented.
It would be great if there was a "search" feature that would let you search for a specific word or wording within the asset listing, without exporting then searching.
For the price of the software, it is definitely worth a look!

I have found that this product is very easy to learn with time. I have also learned how to do fixed assets by using this product.
The system seems to have a hard time thinking and processing the results.
I feel that it does what it needs to do. I am not a software engineer, so I don't really know what it is that needs to be fixed. But something is causing it to run slowly on my system.

It appears to be the only DEP & Asset software out there that does everything you want for a reasonable price. I've been at 3 companies in 17 years and each one ended up purchasing it and replying on it.
The price has gone up in the last 5 years, but it still very competitive.
Compare all the features to at least 5 other software out there. Then find out how much each is worth at the level you need.
Shari from EKOS Corporation
The setup and menu options are intuitive. We did our setup completely on our own, without training from an implementation team.
There's no report customization without purchasing an additional package. Some customization filters should be provided when you don't need anything extensive, like a simple column addition.
Sage Fixed Assets is a good product for basic needs at an affordable cost.
Melissa from United Laboratories Manufacturing
It's easy to work with and easy to upload.
It's very easy to use and learn. Their support is very good, and they have good documentation.
Use the instructional guides, which are very useful. Utilize the help desk as well.

- High capacity of asset info to store
- Multiple companies
-Multiple reports, and customizable
- Software interface looks outdated/old
- There isn't much else I dislike. Still a good software and we use it a lot.

The program is great and it does what we need - the only thing bad about it is when there are upgrades there is always a glitch which is fixed when the next upgrade is released. Also the customer service can be improved - they place you on hold it seems like forever.
it does do the statements and reports that we need and it does let you customize your reports
the customer service - it takes forever to reach someone. When there are updates there is always something wrong with some aspect and you have to wait until the next update is released,
Joe from Eckroth Music
Leading software for maintaining fixed assets. They have different versions, local and network versions. There have been bugs in the network version that finally have been fixed. It's kind of expensive for the basic function it does but it works.
John from Eckroth Music
This software is used to maintain our fixed assets. It a bit expensive but does a good job. The interface could be a little better
Stacie from Eckroth Music
The software is ok, it does what it is supposed to. It's quite expensive for what you get. The support is ok but could be better.
Ben from CMA
We use this product for asset management, depreciation, and disposals. It's easy to use and gets the job done.
Shawn from Rivers & Moorehead, PLLC
The FAS system is a very strong stand-alone fixed asset system. Capabailities include Book and tax depreciation as well as area to enter important details at the time of purchase, time of transfer etc.
Several trucking companies have implemented FAS in addition to Oracle, Dynamics, or any other accounting software.
David from PrimaryData
We run it off a shared server and it runs pretty slow. Take away the slowness and the report-writing tool and it does its job as required.
