Very hard to use. I couldn't customize reports. Difficult to communicate to other software. It's separate from our main accounting software and I had to do tons of manual adjustment to record fixed asset to the main accounting software. It has no query function. When one asset is off, it's very hard for me to find and fix it.

Pros

We have found Sage to be the most user friendly fixed assets software. It is easily searchable by any field and is very easy to navigate.

Cons

We didn't like that the software will let you duplicate records and doesn't prevent duplicate assets being entered. Wish there was a stop or at least a popup message that would help hedge that off.

Pros

Sage fixed assets has the capability to add and track several data points, which can be customized by the company. Photos and notes for each asset can be added to the asset file and retrieved at any time.

Cons

Certain data cannot be added to the main view grid, but can be added to reports, and vice versa. It's difficult to compare two different reports that pull two different sets of data because some data points are only added to one report versus another.

It works fine if you want to wait 10 minutes for a report to upload. Of course, it's faster than having to do it on excel myself but I feel like they take advantage of that fact and make the software just shy of garbage so you will pay to use it.

Pros

It keeps me from doing it by hand.

Cons

It's tempermentall and shuts down frequently.
The calculations are frequently a little off.
Too expensive for the time I have to put into it.

Advice to Others

Yeah it works. And from what I hear other products are just as bad.

Being able to customize reports as well as export to formats such as excel has been a life saver. We have never had any problems with data loss or calculations being inaccurate. Once you get passed some of the clunky ways it wants you to do things it becomes a pretty powerful way to organize your fixed assets.

Likes Least

The UI and navigating within the UI could use a lot of work. They seem to steadily improve it as they release new versions but it is still pretty clunky and takes a little bit of getting used to.

Recommendations

As with any other software, take a look at around three other programs and compare features between them. If you can get a hold of a free limited trial that is even better.

Ease of use, even before training. There are many help tools that actually provide good assistance. The software provides many custom fields that the user can define how they want them to be presented.

Likes Least

It would be great if there was a "search" feature that would let you search for a specific word or wording within the asset listing, without exporting then searching.

Recommendations

For the price of the software, it is definitely worth a look!

It appears to be the only DEP & Asset software out there that does everything you want for a reasonable price. I've been at 3 companies in 17 years and each one ended up purchasing it and replying on it.

Compare all the features to at least 5 other software out there. Then find out how much each is worth at the level you need.

The previously named FAS50 now became Fixed Assets Depreciation Light I believe. It does what we need it for, but not much else.

Large price jumps to higher tiers that allow more features such as storing the database file on a network share. Pretty insane that the base level product intentionally torpedoes attempts to store the file on a network drive.

Our company uses Sage Fixed Assets to maintain our company Asset files by setting up a separate company for each location. Sage keeps up with the ever changing depreciation laws so you don't have to.

Pros

Multiple companies can be set up, in addition a consolidated company can be set up for reporting purposes. Lots of easy applications.

Cons

When printing reports sometimes the system locks up on me and I have to log out and restart it.

We use Sage Fixed Assets to manage all of our fixed assets and their depreciation.

Pros

Sage Fixed Assets allows me to easily manage multiple company assets and makes keeping track of things like depreciation simple. I love that I am able to quickly find information by searching in any field.

Cons

I don't like that Sage Fixed Assets will allow people to enter duplicate assets and duplicate records. It would be helpful if there was something that flagged these mistakes immediately so that we didn't have to find them later.

Sage Fixed Assets has been able to fulfill all needs I've had while tracking multiple companies fixed assets. The interface and reports are well laid out. Customer Service team has been very helpful.

It does become very slow as a large amount of assets are added to a database. Some changes to individual assets trigger other changes without alerting the user - such as changing depreciation type can change estimated life.

Good for keeping all of your fixed assets in one place. Good for running basic reports at month end, but not much else.

Cons

I do not like how you cannot customize the reports very easily. The software is also not very intuitive and difficult for a 'newbie' to learn. Seems like this could have been a much better product if it was more user friendly.

Sage offers easy-to-use/read reports that are easily modified to a users preferences or needs. The software also provides a great solution for housing supporting documentation for each asset. This makes research easy and convenient.

Pros

Sage's strongest features are report creation, documentation ability and intuitiveness. Reports are sleek, complete and can be modified easily to meet any demands you may have, there are many options available to support documentation efforts (ie. attaching images or pdfs, additional fields for entering specific information) and the product's ease of use requires little time for users to get "up to speed."

Cons

Reports take a considerable amount of time to load based on the simplicity of many of the reports we use. Based on the other abilities of the software, I would expect reports to be generated a little quicker.

it does do the statements and reports that we need and it does let you customize your reports
