    Pros

    We use this for our accounting department and couldn't be happier. It is very easy to use and intuitive.

    Cons

    There are no cons. We use this as part of our parent company and connect to a remote server and it works perfectly.

    I quite like the software and would recommend. I also use Quickbooks, but Sage suits me much better.

    Pros

    Really easy to understand and get up and running. Simple workflows and very easy to see the underlying transactions .
    Adjustments and corrections are a breeze.

    Cons

    Only issue I have is with electronic file transfers for payments to my bank. Sage keeps sequential files numbers for each of the different payment types (eg. Payroll and Suppliers), but my bank requires the numbers to be sequential overall. Each time I have to adjust the file number to the proper number so my bank does not reject it.
    Online support and training material is adequate, but if you need a real person support is limited - hard to get any response and often need to pay.

    Even though this software is really good to use, it takes a while to get used to. Not the best UX experience.

    I would never recommend this software. Any looking for a way out. I know other companies who use this software and are taking the same approach. Maybe after enough people leave their service, they'll start acting like a customer friendly company; not a company that says ...... "I gotcha!!" Time to take the ride!!!

    Pros

    It is a sturdy platform. Served its purpose. Has good features .... a good overall solid mid sized company package.

    Cons

    As in previous reviews, they are now price gouging with huge support price increases. Can't get any update without getting support plan. They do not have a "pay for support" option only for the experienced user of their software. Now we can't get phone support. Only support given is through web chat. That really sucks!! Imagine trying to teach someone how to use the Report Writer feature through web chat. Very Sad!!!

    Pros

    Sage is an accounting software with more than enough features for simple accounting tasks. It is highly recommended for small inputs. It is applicable for tax management which I think, most software lack. VAT reports and filing is possible with this software. Expense tracking and cash management, amongst other features of this software, are another features of this software that I use both personally and for work. Sage is just easy and simple. Its app availability is also a great plus.

    Cons

    I have found that slow internet connection also slows output for this software which is really hard if you are trying to reach a quota. But it is still highly capable of its work depending on your internet connection.

    Expensive. Too expensive for what you get and given how many other products are out there that are web based, I feel they've missed the boat.

    Pros

    Can customize views extensively, very affordable licensing since outdated version was purchased by IT.

    Cons

    Takes forever to re-load reports from moderate sized sql, refreshes every line item even when changing simple ship dates resulting in 1-minute wait period before you can continue editing orders, yet you then still have to save at the end which does the by line item refresh yet again? (Remove each refresh when not changing line items)

    Pros

    We went with Sage because we needed an accounting software that would also keep inventory stock. The fact that Sage has build able modules and customization available is pretty much the biggest asset available. I use Accounts Receivable, Payable, Sales Order, Inventory Management, Purchase order, General Ledger and Paperless office. I like that it allows me to more permanently close out accounting days and keeps track of all reports for later use.

    Cons

    It is a time consuming software to learn, definitely keep a professional on standby when installing and learning the system. Although I like being able to close out days and orders, it does make it a little harder to fix any mistakes. There are occasional bugs with the system but nothing that hasn't been able to be fixed with a phone call to our Sage installer.

    Excellent for an accountant and inventory companies.

    Pros

    It tracks inventory and manufacturing process really well. The cost of goods and sales functioning and tracking is excellent.

    Cons

    Not built for service companies. The functions work but they don't fit the necessary needs of service companies. A scaled down version might be easier.

    Back in 2005 it was the only mid level accounting system out there. Today there are just too many other options without being held hostage to price gouging.

    Pros

    The way it can handle inventory and pick,pack ship. Used to include a great Payroll program but now that is an add on.

    Cons

    Huge price increases year after year for just the license. Then you have to hire a software programmer to even do the smallest of task. Or even more money to fix a simple data entry error.

    The integrity of the system is undoubtedly the best part of it, apart from the financial analysis tools.

    The least I like is that it does not have several languages only English, it would be good to add other languages.

    Standard ERP setup, relatively easy to use interface, setup is easy. Manual work arounds are easy to establish.

    Cons

    Reporting is antiquated, interfaces are difficult to maintain or non-existant, a "not very integrated" type system. Needs ability to interface with bank transactions and better financial reporting/consolidation tools.

    Despite the whole full and complex look and feel, Sage 100 is still quite easy to understand in about 3 tries(if self teaching) but under an experienced hand , I’d probably give a day a day and half max.

    Pros

    The best thing about this software is it’s streamlined nature. An ERP that can help completely monitor from manufacturing to storage to logistics to HR and even customer relationship and satisfaction. This is one top of the line software.

    Cons

    It is still a bit jumbled up. Once loaded, it still looks like a whole lot on the eye. Icons and folders can still be properly arranged and sorted properly. Still a lot of addons that are not really needed.

    Easy to use and understand. Easy to retrieve past info for analysis purposes. Helps with day to day accounting and budgeting.

    Perhaps a nicer layout but this is not a deal breaker. Also more GUI functions to be able to let other non-accounting staff use it.

    Sage100 is a great product for smaller companies with one location. The problem we ran into with it was when we started operating out of multiple locations.

    Pros

    + Relatively affordable
    + Great at tracking inventory
    + Can export all data directly into excel
    + Allows for a lot of functionality

    Cons

    - Not Cloud Based
    - Have to keep up a server and slow on a local system
    - System has to be continually updated to keep up with the latest version

    Sage has all the basic features of your standard accounting software. The forms and reports are simple - not much out of the box, so it is very straightforward.

    Cons

    Not many options to customize forms or create custom reports. If you're looking for specific data, you may have to figure a workaround to get what you need.

    When we signed up for SAGE we were sold the moon - so a big pro is their sales team is great at closing deals.

    Cons

    The cons unfortunately outweigh the pros. Anything that you would want to do with SAGE requires a great degree of customization through paid consultants and programming teams. The cost per user can get insane and the system is very clunky with reporting and databases being difficult to configure.
