Integrated software

Customer Support is so helpful, the software has a lot of modules but is necessary for every workers with different tasks.

Pros

Integrated software which is not so easy for the first time of use, so I am thankful for your helpful customer support. They are so patient and willing to help me solve my issues on the software so I can understand every part of the modules.

Cons

It is not so easy for beginners, but try to explore the entire system and ask the help of customer support and soon you'll maximize the use of the application.

OneNote Improves my Workflow

Cheer up and thank you for this software!

Pros

OneNote serves as my well-organized notebook my daily organization. It really helps my workflow because it has an easy access and very functional features.

If you are a beginner or a newbie in OneNote, you will find it as complex and very complicated software because it requires a training and knowledge.

User for many years

Pros

I like that Sage 300 CRE can cover several aspects of our construction company, such as accounting, project management, job cost, etc. Each module talks to the other one. The customer support is excellent.

Cons

Sometimes it's hard to search a specific help topic. Every now and then we'll come across strange quirks in the system that doesn't make sense, but support is able to help.

Could be more user friendly

Pros

Timberline integrates the Estimating Program with Project Management with Accounting so nice to have everything with on Program

Cons

There should be more user friendly options so you don't need to enter the data every time, there should be more repetition

It was great and integrated with our timberline estimating software

Pros

It was extremely easy to use and our accounting department even said it was fantastic. On the project management side, the staff liked the cost codes you could integrate and use. and the ease of sending financial information in. It was also used for monthly job cost review meetings with project management and operations. I believe it was relatively easy to generate thorough documents for review.

Cons

You couldn't do things through a mobile device. A lot of field staff and other personnel in various industries were always on the go and we couldn't have remote access on smartphones.

Sage products are robust however the learning curve poses a barrier

Too complicated for the average staffer

Pros

Extensive features make the program a powerful tool. The useful reporting features create shareable data

Cons

The program is extremely difficult to use. The training time required to bring staff to a point where they can produce makes it a very expensive tool

It's an old school system that you can rely on for accurate data

Pros

It was dependable. I could always pull it up and liked the way I was able to extract data. It was easy to synchronize with other systems.

Cons

I did not like that customer support took hours out of your day. It was an old school system that had minimum character limits.

Sage 300CRE Review

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.

Software past its prime

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).

Sage 300 Construction

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.

Great system for construction. Efficient accounting software. Works great with Timberscan software.

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.

Sage 300 is an amazing tool if you are a medium to large company, their customer service team is hands down amazing as well.

Ageing system

Needs an update to remain relevant.

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.

Sage products are well know in the Construction and now in Real Estate

Pros

It is nice to know the features of Sage for construction ( schedule, purchasing, accounting, etc.). Great to tie in real estate (options, move in schedule, etc.)

Great for construction projects in real estate company

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.

I have been using this product for over 20 years.

Pros

Assembly takeoffs and easy user modified databases. Easy to train new users and keep all users using the same format. Pricing updates are simple through the database inks. Easy to modify or add new items to the database, or create one time items for oddball things that are not common.

Cons

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