Cons
We gave it up after the first 4 months and lost 30 K , I'm starting litigation to try and get my money back.

AT

Reports in this software are the worst part of it. It needs to be updated and make it easier to build and customize reports to suit company use.

There have been times, that an update has taken place and we were not notified to updated and it caused problems.

Sage Helps

Reviewed 10 months ago

We started in 1987 with The Master Builder; which was purchased by Intuit; which was purchased by Sage and became Sage 100 Contractor. So we have grown up with the great grampa of Sage 100. It has run our company for decades and we are very happy with it. As we grow, the program can grow. There is still a lot of the program's capability that we do not use, yet, but hope to.

Pros

Integration of job bidding to job costing to accounting to payroll.....all modules talk to each other in real time. We could not have any software that did not do all these things

Cons

The weak point is the estimating module that comes with it. I don't think it has been upgraded for 20 years.....no...really. They want me to buy the upgraded estimator which I think I will do soon.

Vendor response

Thank you for your feedback! We appreciate your business and look forward to helping drive your continued success in construction and real estate.

Sage 100 Software by General Contractor

Reviewed 5 months ago

We are a general contractor and we probably don't utilize all the bells and whistles available in the software that a subcontractor might use to their benefit. We were mislead on the reports available when we purchased the software and spent significant dollars getting a custom report to suit our needs. The software has been very reliable.

Pros

Integration of accounting information with project management information; Real time information/status of the job; Ease of using drop-down to source; Ability to export information to excel and third party reports.

Cons

When the vendor is shown on a report or screen and the vendor number isn't. The reports section is missing a comprehensive (in detail) project manager report that captures and compares budget, contracts, change orders, purchase orders and costs to date. Learning how to use change orders as they impacted reports was difficult.

Specialist Construction works accounting software

Reviewed 2 months ago

For a contractor, it is simple to keep track of construction-related expenses and income. Makes it much easy to do.

Pros

In terms of reliability and ease of use, Sage 100 Contractor is a solid choice. It aids in the easy and systematic extraction of data in an understandable and useable format. If you use this application, you'll have an integrated database that you may search using any of the fields available in this program. Sage 100 Contractor, which my current employer uses for all of its business needs, is easy to connect to external applications and allows you to bill subcontractors and suppliers.

Cons

Nothing worth mentioning, the app is easy to use, and just needs some training to get everything going.

Thoughts in the Second Year

Reviewed a year ago

Training wasn't smooth. Our trainer was a good person but we were mislead in regards to the cost of getting started so that was a negative from the beginning.

Pros

That it worked well with Procore and gave us a more detailed accounting system.

Cons

The double entry with using Procore and Sage 100. I also don't like that it isn't very user friendly. Lots of clicks to accomplish a simple task. I will use looking at the checkbook register as an example. I should just be able to click and look at at it. It should take 5 or 6 clicks to get there.

Vendor response

Thank you for submitting a product review. Your feedback is invaluable to the continued improvement of products and services from Sage

Good Estimating Program

Reviewed 2 months ago

I do like the fact that I can copy over a quote previously done if I have another client that wants the same thing or something similar. This saves a good amount of time.

Pros

I have been using this software for the past 13 years. Because I have been using it for that long I am pretty familiar with it when it comes to producing landscape quotes and invoicing. Other people in my office use it for inventory and budgeting among other things.

Cons

Sometimes I will produce a quote, which can take a long time where there are many materials, notes and line items and when I go to save it and print it, it will say out of balance. There is no way around this and I have to re-do the entire quote which is very frusterating.
