Pros

Pros

It is an easy friendly software to use and to learn. The support team is good and I really like the new chat help, with save us ton of time to solve a problem.
It can be all encompassing with “modules. From Estimating (which is an excellent product) through the accounting modules to project management, the workflow is pretty seamless.
That is very nice that it pulls everything from Sage and makes the reporting process seamless and easy. There are many other products that integrate well including MyAssistant.

Cons

Cons

Overall, our experience has been negative. Nearly 100% of our users dislike it in comparison to other systems we have used in the past.
Future period balance sheets which cross a fiscal year are difficult to create because of how retained earnings is posted. Unable to tell the current period when entering report parameters.
We have been using this software for MANY years and the fact that we cannot remove unneeded accounts, payroll deductions, and codes is ridiculous.

Excellent software for Financials, Project Accounting, Project Management and Service Management but does lack a bit within the Payroll module (excludes some basic functionality). Unfortunately the application does not provide adequete support for Human Resources at this time.

Penta Technologies

Reviewed 9 years ago

Penta integrates almost all facets of Project Management (with the exception of scheduling functions) with the Accounting program. This is extremely important to us because it provides an immediate picture of job cost and profitability of the project. We are upgrading to version 19.5 so I don't feel I can give a fully accurate review until we have completed the testing process and hit the "Go Live" milestone. It would be nice to give a review of the new dashboard features from a Project Manager's point of view.

I have been using Penta for almost 7 years. I have found it to be an exceptional product from an Accounting perspective. Our auditors have noticed a marked improvement in the quality of our data as well as the speed in which we answer their questions. The document management module is integrated seamlessly with the accounting modules, which allows users to drill down to source documents rapidly. The...

Great product, but not adapting to new technology

Reviewed 8 years ago
Pros

It is an integrated ERP software that is fairly robust and reliable.

Cons

It's definitely not web enabled. They have meant to be bringing something out for awhile but are one of the entrenched box software providers and are getting left far behind. There's no cloud version (apart from a citrix delivery) and no 3rd party app store where you can easily plug and play different add ons.

Good product, frustrating reporting, is Sage looking forward?

Reviewed a year ago

Solid ERP software. Expensive to get all the "bells and whistles". Requires work outside the software to get useful information efficiently.

Pros

Once trained, easy to use. Good security policies in place to allow multiple users with access to only what they need.

Cons

Cumbersome to get information out. If you want Job information about an AP invoice, you need to look at two different inquiries because the job info is in the Job Cost database while you are looking in the Accounts Payable database, or vice versa. Even with daily time entry, the Payroll module doesn't offer an inquiry or report to get daily info about an employee (Job charged to, EQ used, etc.) Finally, why doesn't Sage have any plans to develop a 64-bit ODBC driver? The whole world is going to 64-bit Windows platforms, but have to use 32-bit Spreadsheet software to use the ODBC connection to access the information that should be available from within the software itself.

CRE Application Manager Review

Reviewed 8 years ago
Pros

It's scalable and has a lot of features. Sage continues to improve the product and customer experience.

Cons

Module integration is lacking, so you must continually go in and out of modules. It can be confusing to use resources since there are so many products (Sage 300 ERP, Sage 300 CRE, Sage 100, etc.).

Where have you been all my life

Reviewed 5 years ago

If you already have SAGE 300 ERP and need to manage projects and job costings, you need not go any further. Truth be told, if I didn't have all that stuff and found this first it would convince me to buy the other stuff.

Pros

I have SAGE 300 ERP with the PJC module and to tell you the truth we had been looking for a system to manage costs of our projects for years that the years would actually use and not complain about. PJC is great but we just couldn't get the users to be all in with its use. Then I discovered CRE aka Timberline. I cannot believe this thing existed, where have you been all my life. This solution integrates...

Catch up with the present!

Reviewed 2 years ago

Having worked with several different programs, for the most part, it is no worse or better than another. They all have their issues, but Sage is definitely not a program you can just 'step into'.

Pros

It was in place when I started working here and is fairly easy to use once you learn the quirks. It does well for Job Cost Accounting.

Cons

The fact that simple things, like making a GL account inactive are not available. We have been using this software for MANY years and the fact that we cannot remove unneeded accounts, payroll deductions, and codes is ridiculous! It makes it cumbersome and a nightmare to pull some reports! The fact that SAGE ERP doesn't even talk to SAGE Accounting says a LOT!

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