There are many "out of the box" features that were not used and I believe this is the biggest downfall. Everything we have is modified to our needs and that breaks the "out of the box" features that could have been useful.

Pros

The order is connected to the shipment which is then connected to the invoice. This allows an order to not be manually changed without changing the order of operations. This alleviated all other errors, however, we have come across errors as a person with higher administrative rights was able to break the link and modify something in the middle versus only modifying things at the end.

Cons

Normally, within an ERP system, each functionality should speak to one another without having to manually do so. Example #1, if you were to process a sales order, it does not alert you to create a shipment. You have to manually select the shipment icon. Example #2, once warehouse has scanned the order and picked the appropriate items (by scanning them in) the system does not validate the order itself, another manual step to validate the order is needed. Example #3, once an order is validated, you are not prompted to invoice, rather you have to manually select the invoice icon. I do not understand why the manual steps are needed if a system is suppose to read/work on itself.

I like the flexibility, the queries are very easy to use, and easy to create new ones. All data is integrated.

I can't stand Crystal Reports. They take very long to generate, don't export well, and and not user friendly.

Out of the box programming does not function fully, modification are needed.

Pros

After modifications, it works to fit our needs. We had to incorporate other needs that were slightly difficult to configure into the current application.

Cons

some areas do not speak to one another without modifications. The order of operations were limited and we still do not use those features.

We are a mid-sized organization of European origin. We had been using software developed in Europe that did not meet U.S. Financial reporting needs, so we decided to purchase Sage ERP 5.6 in late 2010 and went live as of 3.1.11. We did most of the implementation work ourselves and were on an extremely tight schedule. The users were trained prior to implementation and had forgotten much of what they had learned by the time they needed to use the system. We had a second and third round of training each being 6 months apart. We have had a year on the new system and it is meeting all expectations.

Thyssenkrupp VDM USA was using MAS 200 SQL for 10 years. As this product was phased out, management and users wanted to stay within the familiar Sage Product. Sage 500 ERP, being the true SQL solution, allowed our in-house programmers to create views and reports that were more specific than 200. Although we have only been live with 500 for 8 months in the Accounting and Distribution pieces, we are anxiously awaiting to finish the manufacturing implementation.

Our organization was ready to adopt new technology with the newly stable market. We started looking for new software that would help us adapt to the changing business environment. We started with Sage ERP version 5.4 and now have upgraded to version 6.0. The implementation team studied our company environment, user needs, required reports and then integrated all this throughout the system. The whole installation process took about 3 months.

The implementation specialist from Sage was so helpful as we moved to the new system. Our team didn't learn very quickly and had a little trouble picking it up, but with time and support the users have adopted the system. The customer support does a great job, although in some cases there's a little bit of a wait when they're attending other customers and you need help right away.

The system saves time, is user-friendly and reduces duplicate data entry.

I use Sage ERP software for inputting AP/AR invoices in an accounting office. This was the software that was being used when I started working at my company. So far, I have found it to be very easy to learn and also very helpful with what I use it for. I think that the customer service is excellent because they really take the time to explain things that you are having difficulty with. Overall I would recommend this Sage ERP software to other companies.
