Pros

The structure of the software is good and allows for good navigation. It has some standard features that are good.

MC

Matthew C.

Sage X3 is good software with a very robust set of features. Tasks such as completing quotes and orders are easy to complete.

KG

Kraig G.

We have learned that we have a very robust system that we need to take advantage of.

TP

TRACY P.

Pros

A great vision, well packaged product, scalable from 10 to 999 users. It is more than robust, stable and there from 12+ years, benefiting from 42+ years of SAP experience in ERP Suites.

JB

Jérôme B.

It’s great for financial analysis. SAP ERP is a very comprehensive tool that is very helpful to my companies business to achieve best financial and customer support results.

MF

Morgan F.

The gold partner support is excellent and ongoing system improvements good.

RS

Rhys S.

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

I have used and configured many ERP systems and with out a doubt this is the worst system money could buy. Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere.

CP

Christopher P.

Ten steps to do one task. The service, HR , Marketing section are worthless.

CP

Christopher P.

Has a very limited presence under the SAP Umbrella and very few people talk about it.
