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

The ease of use and reputation are by far the greatest part of this product. In addition to this, the range of potential integrations is fantastic.

RC

Ryan C.

I love the app and gives me accounting on the go. Helps me track invoices and profits with ease.

AR

Anonymous Reviewer

Really easy to submit expenses, categorise them and check the progress of you submitted expense - super easy to do all from the app.

Holly 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

There are no delivery notes/packing slips. They tout a "workaround" but be warned, it's exactly 10 extra clicks so it's really not an option if you need this feature.

FM

Fergus M.

Our main complaint is that Xero stopped doing payroll in 2018, so now you have to pay an additional fee to a payroll processor such as Gusto.

Craig F.

Changing accounting software from Xero is a horrible experience. They make it very difficult to pivot to other software.
