Pros

Overall it is very simple to use and I like the transparency to do our transactions and great a report, I really like how easy and accurate it is to track donations and the donors.
I love the ease of creating invoices. It's very easy to get paid and I love that I get notified instantly upon getting a paid invoice.
It is very user friendly. I love the webinars that are available to help you navigate your way around the software.

Pros

Excellent customer support, excellent value for the money. Great for organizations with multiple entities - ability to switch between companies/work in different companies at the same time.
Having worked with a few erps, this is one of the cleanest UIs and has been a great experience with getting data out of it. The datacubes on the backend have been really good as well.
So far it has been great. I love you can put information in spread sheet.

Cons

My records were a jumbled mess, and the tech support was awful. They’d say someone is going to call , then that person would email instead.
I dislike being unable to undo batches of reconciliations to fix errors.
Doing a bank reconciliation is more complex than the desktop version. There was a problem with the AZ withholding and they have never fixed it.

Cons

Quite expensive, customer support is dire (when you can actually get anyone) and it’s quite difficult software to use if you are not trained in accountancy.
There was a serious lack of training from our implementation partners, they were not knowledgeable.
The transfer to Sage 100 was very frustrating. Part of the issue that made it so frustrating was caused by the company hired to help us with the transfer.

Was not impressed

Reviewed a year ago

Eh, not impressed. I like Quickbooks Desktop version 100 times better.

Pros

It is very user-interface-friendly. It looks good on the front and back end of the invoicing and billing.

Cons

It does not have nearly as many features as Quickbooks Desktop, or I just couldn't find them. It would be good for a simple, small business.

We love quick books!

Reviewed 5 years ago

We use quick books everyday all day for invoicing and payroll! Invoicing has been 100 times easier with quick books.

Pros

I truly like the payroll part of quick books. very easy to understand and easy to work wiht

Cons

The ONLY part i do not like is the employee time sheets, BUT its because we do our times different and its a little hard to understand. I truly haven't had a chance to work with it lately im sure it would be good.

For an SMB there are few better accounting software packages.

Reviewed a year ago

Overall, very positive. I consider it essential but some ability to add certain modules without having to increase costs by 100% would be nice.

Pros

It's easy to use and learn. It integrates with many banks making it simple to reconcile.

Cons

Reporting needs to add more charts and graphs and the dashboard needs more widgets and customization. You get good reports at our level, but to get graphical charts you have to upgrade to the next levels which is more than 100% increase in costs. Also, modules they include are rendered useless with out others. Example: inventory. It's a great tool, but without the ability to have a role for jus tan inventory manager without doubling my costs to upgrade means I can't use it.

Works well for small business

Reviewed 5 years ago

On a day to day bases, it is easy to use and easy to see a quick snapshot of where our company stands. Customers can view and pay their invoices online and money is deposited quickly. It has helped increase our cashflow.

Pros

The software was fairly easy to set up and is very easy to use. Very forgiving. Errors can be corrected easily. (with the exceptions noted below)

Cons

The recurring transaction feature does not always work as expected. Accounts or products that are created in error can only be made inactive, not deleted. We now have a lot of extras since the accountant that helped us import our Sage data imported everything twice. We have 2 of all our products and accounts.

Mid Tier Accounting Software with Mid Tier Value

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

The best thing about QuickBooks Online Advanced is the price. As a SMB that has over 100 employees and generates +$12 million in revenue, the software package that is included is inexpensive as compared to other ERP/Accounting software passages.

Cons

The worst thing about QuickBooks Online Advanced is the discontinuity that exists within the platform. Everything seems to operate in a segregated manner so it is easy to get working in one section of the platform, but it is not simple to transition to another from within a section. The platform is by no means complete because there are many features that are missing and either require an integration with a 3rd party application or a need to purchase another software altogether.

Over 10 years of complete satisfaction!

Reviewed 5 years ago

100 percent satisfied. I have been approached with offers to switch. I turn every single one of them down. QuickBooks has proven to be to be the absolute best software for me to use in this area.

Pros

I love QuickBooks for Non-Profits! I have used this software exclusively for the past 10 years with no problems at all. I have received numerous compliments from Board Members of the accuracy and detail I provide when it comes to our financial reports. I have been told I provide the best reports they have seen (many are members of other non-profit boards). It is all accomplished with just a few clicks and the reports printed out!

Cons

It does take a bit of getting used to. Especially when you are first setting up the system. Once it is set up, it runs along fine. One thing to make sure of is the category of the items you are entering. Otherwise, your reports will contain mis-categorized information. Be sure to check over your reports for accuracy in that area. If identified, it is a simple fix - but you must check it over.

Vendor response

Hearing that you've enjoyed using QuickBooks for so many years makes our day, Bob! We're thrilled to know that you're able to confidently present accurate data with the reports you've created without breaking a sweat. You can continue rely on us to have your back for years to come. It sounds like you're a pro, but if you ever need any assistance, we recommend checking out the Community.

Standart Software for Accounting

Reviewed a year ago

It is the software our business is running on. We are happy using it.

Pros

It is very widely used in Canada and with other suppliers, so it is easy to integrate. You can do multiple things as invoicing, financing, inventory management, payments, estimates etc. And the best part is it works on the cloud, so you can work from anywhere and from any device you like.

Cons

No option to edit multiple items at same time. If you want to change only one letter of 100 product’s name you have to edit all of them 1 by 1. Also in search bar it finds only if you write in correct order. It would be nice to find product with writing any part of it’s name.

It's not a terrible program but I's definitely prefer Quickbooks over this.

It is fairly easy to learn to use the basic features that it offers if you've used similar programs before

Cons

Cannot make descent reports; Can't correct a previous transaction so it becomes complicated to fix mistaks

Easy and clear for your bookkeeping needs

Reviewed 6 years ago

I quite like the software and would recommend. I also use Quickbooks, but Sage suits me much better.

Pros

Really easy to understand and get up and running. Simple workflows and very easy to see the underlying transactions . Adjustments and corrections are a breeze.

Cons

Only issue I have is with electronic file transfers for payments to my bank. Sage keeps sequential files numbers for each of the different payment types (eg. Payroll and Suppliers), but my bank requires the numbers to be sequential overall. Each time I have to adjust the file number to the proper number so my bank does not reject it. Online support and training material is adequate, but if you need a real person support is limited - hard to get any response and often need to pay.

Sage 100 ERP Standard

Reviewed 7 years ago

Please consider a different ERP system before implementing Sage 100 ERP. It's not very good.

Pros

This software is OK for accounting. And that is about it. Any additional modules or functionality (you are buying this as an ERP, not just Quickbooks software) has an additional cost.

Cons

Very difficult to administrate. Online help is next to nothing. Proprietary database (ProvideX). Sage Support is very expensive and more often than not they will tell you that they can't help with your problem and you need to talk to your Sage consultant.. Upgrading software can be quite complex if you have any customizations. Next to no innovation in the software. I recently did a version 2014 to version 2017 upgrade (they have new versions every year). The biggest feature upgrade in those 3 years? You can now resize the window and have the text "somewhat" scale. Wow, just wow.

Perfect fit for any size business

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

This software is great no matter the size of your business. It does not require a lot of training time when getting a new employee. Basic components are easy to use. One of my favorite things about this software is that there are many different addons that can acquired from different vendors. If you need a function normally you do not have to wait for sage to add it, more than likely someone already has that solution for you and if not they can create a solution.

Cons

Some of the more advanced features are not explained very well or are hard to find. UI needs to be consistent across all modules.

Not the best, Not the worst

Reviewed 6 years ago
Pros

Easy to use; Easy to run and customize reports; Good for managing entire small business; Integrates with ADP Payroll and allows for easy GL data dumping.

Cons

There is a learning curve with switching to Sage from another software more commonly used (i.e. QuickBooks); Customer service has not handled some issues I have had very well; Backups are not automatic.

Sage 100 Review

Reviewed 4 years ago

We migrated from QuickBooks Enterprise to Sage 100 in 2015. We have had no regrets on this migration and believe we have much better control of our inventory which drives our financial results.

Pros

Sage 100 has all of the features that our small business needs. We require inventory management with bills of materials and work orders. Sage does an excellent job handling this.

Cons

It is not a case of dislike but more of under optimized. The general ledger system is not fully developed for drill down capability. All of the information is in a relational database but accessing inquiring type information is more cumbersome than it needs to be. We have written Crystal reports to accommodate this need.

Wholesale consumer products distributor

Reviewed 7 years ago

A Sage Business Partner who knows exactly how the company's processes function is the best option for support if multiple add-in modules are used.

Pros

Sage 100 Advanced ERP is fully functional for all steps in a wholesale consumer products process. The Reports Explorer allows custom detailed report writing to support general ledger balances. MAS Intelligence reporting uses an Excel BI add-in for financial reporting.

Cons

Standard reports require knowledge of Crystal Reports for customizing. Adding multiple third party modules such as Scanforce, Multi-Bin, etc. greatly complicates upgrades to new releases.

Long time user of this product

Reviewed 5 years ago

Really excellent and the reason I have used Sage in my current business and many more before.

Pros

Sage has been around for a long time and it is clear they lead the space in features and functionality. They have thought of everything you could possible need or wish to do.

Cons

Sometimes all those features can be confusing and trying to navigate the options can confusing but the online support is very very helpful

Works well for a small business

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

This product works well and requires only basic user training. Good ERP for the price.

Cons

You only get 5 total support tickets included in the cost. Advanced setup and reports are nearly impossible without a consultant. You have to go through a reseller to purcahase the software.

Customization

Reviewed 5 years ago

In today's business environment I need to ask more of my employees. Sage 100 offers me the ability to do that.

Pros

Every business is a niche business, and no software perfectly matches every need out of the box. Sage 100 Advanced mixes the best of both worlds, the ability to customize the product to meet my needs with the price of an out-of-the-box solution.

Cons

The price is still a little steep.......

Professional Layout

Reviewed 3 years ago

I have been able to access sage online from anywhere around the world and have instant access to my inventory and sales just a click away

Pros

I really liked the way sage classifies their segments as icons so as to easily identity the functions that you are looking for. The Layout has been carefully thought to be both simple but quite professional.

Cons

The software can become pricy as many features as only available as options which increases the cost of the operating software especially if you are a start-up company.

Solid mid-market enterprise accounting system, with quirks

Reviewed 5 years ago

Very solid system with a few frustrating quirks. You will need to host any version of Sage 100. Consider a cloud-based software as an alternative (Sage Intacct perhaps, although the price skyrockets compared to Sage 100).

Pros

-very cost-friendly pricing for small or medium sized businesses. this is the biggest selling point for Sage to me - it beats Quickbooks as a more ERP level system but is still very reasonably priced -solid on standard accounting -multi-company/location/entity reporting -import/export works well -test company option helps new users acclimate -simple bank reconciliation module -security and role definitions -GL reports are very useful to financial experts

Cons

-bank reconciliation doesn't force you to reconcile to the GL cash account. That defeats the purpose of a reconciliation... -there is almost no customizability to the financial statements. I guarantee you will need to export (Excel) or use a different software (Crystal Reports) to build your monthly financials. -Sage 100 products are hosted in-house, so in the age of the cloud, you will still need...

Accounting

Reviewed 4 years ago

Overall experience has been great with Sage. I am ablet o use it daily, monitor all accounting and close off my year well.

Pros

Sage 100 Cloud has improved over the years from simply accounting. The new interface is very easy to use and makes it easy to navigate through both desktop and online.

Cons

The reporting features are kind of outdated. New reporting according to IFRS should be implemented.

Mixed Results for a highly Specialized Manufacturer

Reviewed 6 years ago
Pros

General Ledger and Bank Reconciliation functions are excellent. Explorer Functions for searching database fields very helpful. Customer Service - with a paid monthly plan - is good. Online Knowledgebase for self service is very helpful.

Cons

Customization is costly and difficult to achieve quick and efficient upgrades to software levels. Extra fees for various modules is frustrating. Monthly service plan is a high cost on an on-going basis.

I like the fact that the software is very robust. We are only touching the surface with it's capabilities. You can easily find answers in the community online. Our software partner is very knowledgeable.

Great ERP for small businesses

Reviewed 7 years ago
Pros

The customer support is the main pro for this software. Most ERP systems rely on online support only, when I have an issue I need to speak to someone immediately and don't have time to wait on a help desk ticket to be created.

Cons

There is a little bit of a learning curve when you start with this ERP system. They do offer tutorials to get you started, I'd recommend going through all of them before getting started.

Affodable step up from Quickbooks

i have used a variety of ERP software packages in my career, including Quickbooks and Microft Dynmaics' Navision, and Sage 100 provides a full feaured ERP package at an affordable price. Cost's per user for a month's subscription for the Essentials core accounting package (GL, AP, AR, Bank Reconciliation) and a little more for the Advanced Bundle (Essentials plus Inventory, Purchasing, and Sales Order),...

Pros

Affordable, flexible, stable data base, excellent module integration.

Cons

Does not have a Point of Sale option, or a full featured Web Store, or user friendly API tool.
