Sage Helps

We started in 1987 with The Master Builder; which was purchased by Intuit; which was purchased by Sage and became Sage 100 Contractor. So we have grown up with the great grampa of Sage 100. It has run our company for decades and we are very happy with it. As we grow, the program can grow. There is still a lot of the program's capability that we do not use, yet, but hope to.

Pros

Integration of job bidding to job costing to accounting to payroll.....all modules talk to each other in real time. We could not have any software that did not do all these things

Cons

The weak point is the estimating module that comes with it. I don't think it has been upgraded for 20 years.....no...really. They want me to buy the upgraded estimator which I think I will do soon.

Response from Sage

Thank you for your feedback! We appreciate your business and look forward to helping drive your continued success in construction and real estate.

Sage 100 Software by General Contractor

We are a general contractor and we probably don't utilize all the bells and whistles available in the software that a subcontractor might use to their benefit. We were mislead on the reports available when we purchased the software and spent significant dollars getting a custom report to suit our needs. The software has been very reliable.

Pros

Integration of accounting information with project management information; Real time information/status of the job; Ease of using drop-down to source; Ability to export information to excel and third party reports.

Cons

When the vendor is shown on a report or screen and the vendor number isn't. The reports section is missing a comprehensive (in detail) project manager report that captures and compares budget, contracts, change orders, purchase orders and costs to date. Learning how to use change orders as they impacted reports was difficult.

Reasons for choosing Sage 100 Contractor

We thought the integration of project management with job cost accounting was significant for us and it was from a reputable company (Intuit).

Reasons for switching to Sage 100 Contractor

Execudata was a single user software that became inadequate due to growth of the company. It was bought by another company who made it windows based software but that occurred after we purchased Masterbuilder .

Good accounting software

My overall experience with Sage 100 is satisfactory. It does what it's designed to do. But i just wish the database was better designed to avoid periodic crashes. Other than that, we're satisfied with the software.

Pros

Sage 100 Contractor is relatively easy to deploy and use. It didn't take long to train my clients. Furthermore, it does require much computer resource to run this program.

Cons

The upgrade from 2016 to 2018 resulted in a significant performance degradation. Even though we moved the Sage 100 server to a more robust environment, not much was changed. In fact periodically, Sage 100 would crash due to unknown entries on an order.

New User Review

Now that I have learned how to use the software, I am very happy with it. It allows for seamless integration of project management and project accounting. I would recommend this software to others, but with a serious explanation that the learning process is difficult and frustrating for those who don't come from an accounting background.

Pros

I love the interconnectivity of this software. It really does a great job of tying everything together and it makes pulling union reports, workers compensation reports, etc easier than the spreadsheets that I was having to keep previously. After the long and difficult process of learning how to use the software, I am now seeing all of its benefits.

Cons

Learning how to use this software was not a good experience. I would love to be able to pull up videos on the internet and have someone walk me through the different screens. We used a company with live help for Sage 100 Contractor and it was expensive and I felt that I was often waiting for our schedules to align to get a simple question answered. It made me hate the software in the beginning and it was very frustrating. I am just happy to be past that!

Reasons for choosing Sage 100 Contractor

Our CPA recommended it. My husband, our Project Manager, was familiar with the program and liked how it tied together his side of things with my side of things (accounting). He can now pull up a job and see everything that he needs to know all in one place.

Reasons for switching to Sage 100 Contractor

We wanted something that was more tailored to the way that our business operates. We wanted project accounting to be tied to payroll, job costs, etc. I used to keep Excel spreadsheets outside of Quickbooks to track workers compensation, union dues, health and welfare benefits, payroll hours, etc. I now enter payroll hours into Sage 100 Contractor and it does all the rest of the work for me!

Response from Sage

Thank you for your feedback! We appreciate your business and look forward to helping drive your continued success in construction and real estate.
