JI

The ESM Team is fantastic to work with and the software continues to support our focused strategic planning and performance excellence culture.

MP

Matthews P.

Cons

There are two many bugs for what is charged in maintenance fees. Sage is way too difficult to deal with and are surprised that users are unhappy.

MK

MARK K.

As an administrator I always have problems when it comes to support and debugging problems presented in the application in which many of them are not documented properly.

Daniel R.

Customer Service is TERRIBLE!!!! Customer Support leaves a lot to be desired, but we are forced to use it for the high price we pay in maintenance.

MK

MARK K.

Cons

It is sometimes hard to go back to power points ones you tried to work with ESM you are stuck.

DW

David W.

Even at odd hours of the night or a weekend they usually got back to you right away if there was a question or something wasn't working correctly.

GT

Gemma T.

Cons: The upgrade to 6.0 provided some improvements, but seemed to be more difficult to execute the charts/reports we were accustomed to producing.
