    We use Sage for our accounting software.

    Pros

    The Price! It is still license based an relatively inexpensive compared to others.

    Cons

    The interface isn't user-friendly. The Company hasn't invested in updating the accounting side of the software. They have invested too much into the project management side and ignored the bones of the software.

    Pros

    Allowed us to manage our construction projects and job costs across multiple ongoing projects. Software had integrations with other software we were using, so was helpful we didn't have to create new integrations.

    Cons

    User permissions cannot be set by entity. If you create a user, they can see all entity information. Data software is not easy to use outside of our network (since we self host).

    Pros

    New to this software, I am having a hard time coming up with a pro, I am hoping after I have used it for a while I will get more comfortable with it. The people who are using it in my company have been for years, as a new user, it is very difficult.

    Cons

    I am not sure if we just haven't updated it since it was purchased or if the problem is in the software, it has very few functions and looks outdated. I have a very difficult time maneuvering through invoices and feel it's very open to errors.

    Pros

    Good accounting system to use in the construction industry. Accounts payables module is very efficient and ties in well with the General Ledger. Project management module is easy to use and to track commitments is a simple process

    Cons

    Occasionally we find certain functions that do not work well and have to contact Sage support. It is a little challenging when adjusting receivables especially when you have to void payments first and then later go back in and apply the payments again.

    Pros

    Rock solid accounting package that does a very good job at the basic functions. Uses a grid data entry method witch works well for keyboard data entry.

    Cons

    Has not kept up with current technology and is behind in the features department. Sage has opted to add through third parties rather than integrate features.

    Easy to train new users, easy to use and the best thing you'll ever use for construction.

    Pros

    They have a database that is very useful and is super easy to update and add new people, etc. The software itself is super easy to use and be trained on. Makes a construction job way easier and connects you to all of the information for each job when you go into it so you don't feel like you have jump through hoops to find what you're looking for.

    Cons

    Update all parts of your software, some users may need them and use the more basic features so it is essential to keep everything up to date which seems to be favored towards the more popular features.

    Cons

    Merging estimates I lose my main estimate cover page data. Would like to be able to specify which to keep.

    Pros

    Reliable software with an outstanding and solid support team. Sage is one of the top industry leader for the construction software field, intermediate complexity level to integrate with third party apps makes this software an a remarkable solution for those companies that already have their Master set well defined within construction standards,

    Cons

    Total cost of ownership can be overwhelming without the proper capacity assessment. Sage University to train your Admins and staff can raise up the bar of the investment. Custom features requires special attention from specialized consultants.

    Ability to handle multiple companies with part time hours. Currently on the road to paperless.

    Pros

    Ability to drill down for detail. Ability to find help in several different places IE Sage City, knowledge bases, help menu, customer support, Sage University.

    Cons

    Sage University is too pricey. There should be more free classes. Now they are only for the new features or modules. Frequently I have to wait for a level 2 to answer questions; however I've been using the software for 13 years!

    Reporting is relatively easy once you have done the set-up. Able to export to excel for outside users such as auditors is helpful.

    Pros

    Input is quick and easy. It has been around long enough that most bugs are sorted out unlike some software. Once you learn some of the tricks/shortcuts it is even easier.Updates are frequent and the help desk resolves issues quickly. Able to customize reports.

    Cons

    Like most software it takes some time to setup. Customizing to your business is a feature but then you need to learn to us crystal in order to make updates. Closing month in one module doesn't always update or close the others.
