Sage 100 Contractor Software (formerly Sage Master Builder)


 

Sage 100 Contractor, formerly known as Sage Master Builder, focuses on small to midsize construction companies, whether they are a general contractor, service or specialty contractor or a home builder.

Suitable for companies that have outgrown generic accounting software, the suite of applications encompass the entire construction cycle and include accounting, estimating, project scheduling and management, job costing and service management. The software provides an interactive dashboard that provides instant visibility into things like the status of current job costs, pending operations or company performance. The dashboard also enables users to drill down into larger data sets and see further details like invoices generated or the latest change order.

Users can leverage multiple reporting templates available to generate customizable business reports as per business need. Using predefined yet customizable alerts, the system can also send out an email notifying employees of issues like an expiring certificate of insurance or a low bank balance. A centralized view of projects lets the team see anything related to a job like estimates, invoices, job cost reports, change orders, RFIs, punch lists and more.

Sage 100 Contractor also has cloud-based capabilities through Sage Construction Anywhere. Sage’s network of business partners and consultants, and their ongoing customer phone support, all specialize in construction software.

It takes a lot for me to give a bad review for anyone, so this is how far I've been pushed. We've had this program for over a year and we all wish we had gone with a different one!

Pros

I think it could be a good product but no one will get you past basic training unless you pay a ton of money to get it.

Cons

Everything is a fight to get where and what you need. Things that should be basic construction billing, service, payroll etc are impossible to find. If you want help, forget it. You can "live chat" after being on the wait list for hours, or put in a service ticket only to be told to take their classes. No immediate help, Also you have to go through a "Sage re-seller" to get Sage in the first place.

As an overall comment , Sage 100 contractor will fit all your requirement if your company is in a small to medium size range , you will have control over all the construction stages , from project scheduling , estimating , job cost and service management. with all the reporst template you can quickly have a visual understand of all the progress.

Pros

is a complete suite so you will be able to go thru every aspect needed in construction from scheduling to estimating , RFI and Change order. it is relatively easy to use and uderstand and you will have a lot of capabilities with the reports either you use custom or default templates.

Cons

there is nothing to say that can be a cons because you can manage the entire process with it , i mean , you can get the job done with this , maybe it would be great to not have the necessity of some updates to have the ability to send mass emails to all vendors.

Pros

The software is easy to use - screen layouts are easy to maneuver and data input keystrokes are efficient. Report capabilities offer a multitude of variations and the options for customized reports is available.

Cons

Portions of the system need to be updated! Particularly there currently is not a way to do a mass email to all vendors involved in a project without accessing every one! This is making the system outdated. Also there is a disconnect regarding sales tax - it doesn’t automatically follow from takeoff to PO - you have to open and indicate sales tax on every PO that requires it - the only way to get around this is to tax the full job...

Not user friendly!

Pros

So far nothing, very disappointed!!!. We've been using this software since January and the contractor that sold us the product said it included union wage reporting. However, they forgot to say that it would cost more to do those reports. That was the main reason we changed from Sage 50 to Sage 100.

Cons

Its a very time consuming program, a lot of back and forth entering infor, saving, then printing. Trying to find reports or files also very time consuming. On quarterlys reporting they local tax needs to be updated for overrides, because if there is an override done the report won't pickup those totals.

Sage 100 Contractor is easy to navigate, prints great reports and is very easy to incorporate your bookkeeping needs. I would highly recommend this program.

Pros

Sage has a wonderful support team that are very helpful and quick in fixing any "quirks" that may appear. Usually the "quirks" are due to a Windows update and not something that was caused by the program itself. I really find the Contractor 100 program easy to use and navigate and it has been wonderful using it for the last 10 years or so.

Cons

I do not have any cons about this program. The only thing I wish the program would do that it does not is to change the year automatically on the lien waivers.

This will allow you to have a complete functionally capable office with a successfully and organized business. Worked with sage for one of our clients and I was impressed with how well everything was organized and how every single transaction, etc was recorded accurately.

Cons

The least I liked about the program was it's crashing. Since it would hold up alot of information it would be hard to keep up with my rythym and would constantly lag and would end up freezing the computer. Not much of a fan of this side but overall, good product!

I worked on this system for years and I would recommend it, but fix the flaws.

Pros

I can jump from module to module within this system. Everything is cohesive. All of the information is updated in real time from screen to screen. This is great for project management.

Cons

I would like to see the finance side a bit more structured. The reports are small and hard to read. Error messages should allow you to halt and not move forward. But some of them allow an update prior to the error message which makes for more work. The system needs to flow better.

The software was not at all as they described it on their sales pitch. You can get them to answer the phone when you need help but they call me every other day to ask if I want to buy their checks for the software. Every time you call for support and they happen to answer their phone they pick your pocket. Unfortunately we can't get our money back. Please don't buy this product, it's a rip off.

Pros

Absolutely nothing. It's hard to navigate, can't get help. They told us that there were plenty of tutorials free on line, not True.

Cons

Not user friendly at all and horrible support. Their support center hours are minimal and training is expensive.

Does it all, especially with the estimating add on. We use to have spread sheets, accounting software, separate estimating software, and sage 100 replaced all of that. Good customer support.

It does take some training, especially if you use the estimating functions. Our bookkeeper also had to get some training from a sage pro, but well worth it.

Ease of finding and keeping track of items entered into Sage. Accounting works really well when all is entered correctly.

Cons

Takes awhile to enter various codes and accounts, but once done- works great. Takes some time to learn to use the program but well worth it. Wish the support tickets would roll over into next year(s). Some years all work well, and others we struggle with what is going on in our company and need more support.

Pros

This program lets me access all crucial project information in one hub. I like the "drill down" feature that allows me to get to the source of whatever input I’m looking at. This makes writing change orders a breeze; all you have to do is put in your numerical amounts and change descriptions and sage does the rest for you! Very useful in the contracting world!

Cons

This software is hard to learn in the very beginning. If you aren't tech savvy I would recommend as much training and as many training modules as you can sit through. A huge downside is the fact that you have to open some windows before you can open another; an example is not being able to pull up a job summary report while you're working on a change order.

Great for a construction company that has basic needs above quickbooks but isn't ready to spend a lot of money

Pros

The software is pretty straight forward, not super complicated to deal with. As a smaller specialty subcontractor we used this and it did a great job helping us keep track of jobs, accounting, and payroll, while being able to still keep certain departmental costs split up to ensure profitability. The reporting was decently robust as well.

Cons

The software feels old and not up to par with current technologies. The database is a flat file (foxpro I believe) and although you can get data out of it via odbc connections, it leaves a lot to be desired vs a SQL database.

I love how it is an all in one product with options to add to it for your business needs. Ease of invoicing clients and keeping up with clients balances and pending orders. Clients like that they can receive invoices and account statuses via email.

Cons

The main thing as a bookkeeping is that reconciliation is a very long process and there is no way of locking the books so changes can't be made by others.
The inventory system is very overwhelming when updating levels after doing inventory counts.
I never had great success with support and when I did get some help it was someone who wasn't very educated in the matter or Couldn't help me.
Entering charges from bank statements is a long process and not always easy to use.
But overall if your main need is invoicing and creating quotes for clients this is the software for you.

Mainstream application that is customizable with some time and a little effort :)

Pros

This program has allowed us to manage our finances and our operations / inventory under one software application. We appreciate the evolution of the software - regular upgrades to improve on functionality. Operating in a Sage product means most finance staff are at least familiar with the work environment when they begin work. Payroll is always spot on!

Cons

I wish there was a better work around in Canada for banking/accruing time for employees - we find Excel on the side is best for now but hope to see improvements in the future.

Customer statements base the 30/60/90 days on calendar month so if a bill went out on Feb 28th - it would show 30 days on the statement the next day (March 1st).

Pros

The INCREDIBLE customer service - always willing to assist. They've solved every issue I had throughout the transition from Sage 50 to Sage 100 and have continued to give me exceptional customer support every time. I would not want to be without Sage 100 support.

Cons

The Accounts Receivable module doesn't allow you to do a quote and then turn it into an invoice. I've had to use the Service Receivable module to be able to write a quote that could be turned into an invoice, which seems cumbersome to me - I'd much prefer having anything to do with A/R in the A/R module.

We moved from Quickbooks to Sage 100 Contractor. The job reporting, job costing, and percentage of completion accounting was key to our move.

Pros

Job data, inventory and vendor data are all tied together so you can run job cost reports and drill into the data easily.

Cons

At the moment - limited abilities to push/pull data through API's. Payroll works well - but the one timekeeping system that has API's into Sage 100 Contractor did not work for us.

Financial Reports, monthly and year end reporting, job costing, payroll reporting

Pros

The software is real easy to learn, as I came from a company that only used quickbooks. The functionality of Sage 100 is tremendous. It is real easy to track vendors and make changes as needed. The end of year process is made very simple and Sage sends out a year end checklist so that you don't forget anything. The Sage University and Sage City offer a wealth of information, so that you may not need to contact Customer Service.

Cons

One of the items that I struggle with is the number of reports that are in the system and trying to find the one that gives the owners what they want for information. I have tried to modify the reports but it is not real user friendly. Other than that I don't have a lot of negatives

The software is capable of storing a lot of information for all aspects in construction. It's easy to maneuver around within the modules from anywhere in the software.

Cons

We have modified some reports and goes pretty smoothly once you have been working on them. It takes a little time to re-acquaint yourself on how to do it since we don't modify items that often. I don't like when there are some reports that you can't modify which we would like to.

Streamlining our overall operation. It saves time for the project managers, and for the bookkeeper.

Pros

As an owner, I like the high level overview of all projects, all accounting and the reporting available.

Cons

We are finding it a long learning curve. We've had Sage 100 Contractor almost a year now and still not 100% running on it.
The cost of additional licenses is high, and the required annual support cost must also be factored into a purchase decision. It has cost much more than just the original purchase price.

We were using 3 different systems for job management and reporting and now we only have to use this one.

Pros

It is easy to use. Comprehensive job costing, contracts, project recordkeeping and payroll. Easy to get reports and summaries.

Cons

Only issues that come to mind - and they are not big issues: 1) That dates and search criteria don't stay when you pick different reports to print within the same category. 2) When we enter checks - it no longer sends a reminder when the period doesn't match the date.

It's our prime operating software, so we function day to day and year to year.

Pros

The ease of navigating the menu's, the standard reports and the ability to create custom reports. The software is user friendly and easily able to identify where the user should look in each module to find applicable items for their role.

Cons

It appears to be like Microsoft Excel, but does not operate the same. There are many minor key functions or cell functions that would be helpful that are not available.

One stop software from budget to final invoice.

It has great reporting features, especially in the project management side. User friendly service module.

There are some customization limits and we had to find alternatives solutions to make it work for our company's procedures.

I liked that we were able to try it and it may work wonderfully for some but it was not for us. Glad we got to try it out first.

Pros

That all of our project info can be managed and viewed in one single location. That is a huge plus.

Cons

I find this lacking in the user friendly department. I also do not like the appearance. It looks "old" for lack of a better description. Like DOS based at times. I found the log view unappealing which made it hard for me to see what was open or closed. There are lots of functions but finding them was half of my issue. Training did not leave me warm and fuzzy. I wasnt able to get the support we would need so we did not move forward with the purchase. we went with another program
