Please consider a different ERP system before implementing Sage 100 ERP. It's not very good.

Pros

This software is OK for accounting. And that is about it. Any additional modules or functionality (you are buying this as an ERP, not just Quickbooks software) has an additional cost.

Cons

Very difficult to administrate. Online help is next to nothing. Proprietary database (ProvideX). Sage Support is very expensive and more often than not they will tell you that they can't help with your problem and you need to talk to your Sage consultant.. Upgrading software can be quite complex if you have any customizations. Next to no innovation in the software. I recently did a version 2014 to version 2017 upgrade (they have new versions every year). The biggest feature upgrade in those 3 years? You can now resize the window and have the text "somewhat" scale. Wow, just wow.

Pros

Sage 100 is an awesome way to manage receivables, payables, payroll and inventory management. The customization modules help set up the software to fit your specific needs. I love the paperless office capabilities and the fact that I can pull up my reports within seconds.

Cons

My biggest issue is that it is not the most user friendly, in comparison to other similar software, I used in the past. It does take some time to become familiar with the products and the constant updating.

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

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.

N/A

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 have used a variety of ERP software packages in my career, including Quickbooks and Microft Dynmaics' Navision, and Sage 100 provides a full feaured ERP package at an affordable price. Cost's per user for a month's subscription for the Essentials core accounting package (GL, AP, AR, Bank Reconciliation) and a little more for the Advanced Bundle (Essentials plus Inventory, Purchasing, and Sales Order), and more for the Complete Bundle (Essentials plus Bar Code, Return Materials Authorization, and Bill of Materials). For manufacturing, you can add the Complete Plus Bundle (Work Order, MRP, Job Cost, and Time Card). There are additional add-on modules such as Paryoll with Direct Deposit, 100c Manufacturing (formerly JobOps), CRM, Sage Intelligence Reporting, and eBusiness Web Services. Each package includes Library Master, Business Insights (Drill Down Inquiry, Reporting, and Dashboard), Paperless Office, Custom Office (to create User Defined Fields and customized screens), Visual Integrator (to Export and Import data to/from Excel and Sage), and Crystal Reports.
The Windows Explorer type menus make navigation easy, and the workflow follows the menus. Sage 100 is designed for 1 to 50 users, and supported the creation of multiple business entities or companies. The software has many configuration options, and can be tailored to the company's use, so because it is flexible there is also a learning curve due to its sophistication. Sage has been the number one accounting software recommended by CPA's for many years.

Pros

Affordable, flexible, stable data base, excellent module integration.

Cons

Does not have a Point of Sale option, or a full featured Web Store, or user friendly API tool.

Advice to Others

Choose your Sage Partner carefully, it can make or break your experience in Implementation, on-going support, upgrades, and continued professional services.

It is affordable for the small and medium size organizations.

Sage is a powerful and flexible tool which can be used to manage the day to day accounting as well as in the maintenance of payroll records of the company. The multiple modules provided in the program increase its potential to be a multi-faceted software being able to handle most of the data centrally. Sage software offers many mobile cloud-based apps that leverage the data in the system to better manage sales, inventory, credit cards, service, billing, and payments.

Pros

1. Good for reporting results.
2. Very well structured general ledger module.

Cons

1. Export functionality to excel and scheduler do not work sometimes.
2. Tech support is limited.
3. Does not integrate well with eCommerce as entries have to be made manually.
4. Difficult to handle duplicate data.

Advice to Others

Can be used for a lot of functions, so overall cost to benefit ratio is on the beneficial side.

We use it as a tool for logging time in the projects in our organization. It is a simple software with varied functionality as the data can be retrieved from its database in a number of forms and can be used for analyzing performance and other parameters. Apart from that, it is sometimes used in the project costing where it helps in significantly reducing the time required for finalizing the project costs at the end of the project as compared to other software tools.

Pros

1. It is a flexible software and can be used in engineering, IT, consulting and management related businesses without trouble as it can be altered according to the needs of the client.
2. The data entry is simple and logical.
3. It can be used on both windows and SQL server.

Cons

1. Sometimes have to enter negative values in data entry form into order to delete the unwanted entry.
2. Turns out to be a little slow when a large number of projects are saved and takes a bit of time to load the information.
3. The License is a tad expensive and customer support is payable on top of the license cost.

Advice to Others

It can be used by small businesses as well and you can modify it as per the needs. It is a great package overall.

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.

Strongly recommended for small and medium sized businesses.
