Sage 300 performs great.

2015-01-09

Pros

The Sage 300 product provides a comprehensive solution for construction companies who are interested in combining their estimating, project management, and accounting into one product.

Cons

I wish its interface was a lot more user-friendly such as the Sage 100 products ability to interface with Excel and easily produce PDF documents from any report.

I would recommend that others first determine the key components that they want from their construction software and at what level of sophistication that they are trying to achieve. Then see if the Sage 300 product fulfills their needs. Perhaps the Sage 100 product would be a better option?

Time to change how it works

2016-11-08

We have been using Sage 300 (timberline) for almost 12 years, and there have been no changes (for better or worse) since we got initially.

Pros

Sage (Timberline) saves a lot of time and paperwork for contractors to deal with change orders, submittals, RFIs, etc.

Cons

Interface has not been changed from years, its still the same as it was 10-12 years back.

Great integrated software

2017-10-05

Pros

The integration- My project managers can estimate a project and we can track the job costs and accounting in the same software.

Cons

But I make it easy by setting up shortcuts to the tasks they use (clear lien waivers or the couple common job cost reports the project managers use)

Sage Timberline Office Review

2017-12-14

I like the ease and use of the software, when it comes to the accounting aspect, but the project management part is still a learning curve.

Pros

It provides the full range of the accounting cycle for financial management reporting.

Cons

Project management in relationship to accounting is just okay.

Complicated set up with lack of flow.

2016-11-03

While it allows for a breakdown to figure out your real per job/customer cost, the number of steps to get this data are time consuming and drawn out.

Pros

Integrated software to take your project from takeoff estimate to Final billing.

Cons

Very few standard forms/documents/report.

Sage CRE meets our needs

2014-08-29

Pros

I'm a long-time user, and Sage seems to be reenergized with some of their product offerings and the user community, Sage City, which offers user-to-user assistance, with Sage staff providing assistance as well at no additional support cost.

Cons

I'm looking forward to more cloud-connected services, especially Project Management for our field-based operation users.

Sage 300 Review

2017-02-01

Coming from Simply and QuickBooks this software take you way beyond their functionality. Highly recommend for any construction companies to take this software on as it really goes above and beyond allowing you to track multiple projects, invoice using different products.

Pros

AP system (easy of entry, avoid duplicates Job Cost (track multiple projects, ensure they are invoiced, reports by vendor, by code) Cash Management System(reconcile your statements so easily, transfers between companies are so simplified, make an entry on the fly) GL (reports ...allow you to analyze your accounts)

Cons

That being said you can also order customer reports if that is what you are looking for.

Facelift expected...

2017-02-02

We were impressed by what Sage 300 CRE can offer and we consider that it is a reliable software, however, compared to other software solutions on the market, it doesn't look user-friendly which would make it difficult to implement and work with.

Pros

This software has almost all of the features we were looking for, with project management and accounting integrated which was one of our main requirements.

Cons

They have to update the look of their dashboard and all related screens, including the accounting part.
