Pros: Good for keeping all of your fixed assets in one place. Good for running basic reports at month end, but not much else.

Cons: I do not like how you cannot customize the reports very easily. The software is also not very intuitive and difficult for a 'newbie' to learn. Seems like this could have been a much better product if it was more user friendly.

Overall: Ability to run monthly depreciation reports.

Sage has provided a solid fixed assets solution for our company.

Pros: Sage's strongest features are report creation, documentation ability and intuitiveness. Reports are sleek, complete and can be modified easily to meet any demands you may have, there are many options available to support documentation efforts (ie. attaching images or pdfs, additional fields for entering specific information) and the product's ease of use requires little time for users to get "up to speed."

Cons: Reports take a considerable amount of time to load based on the simplicity of many of the reports we use. Based on the other abilities of the software, I would expect reports to be generated a little quicker.

Overall: Sage offers easy-to-use/read reports that are easily modified to a users preferences or needs. The software also provides a great solution for housing supporting documentation for each asset. This makes research easy and convenient.

Pros: we use this to go along with your Sage 100 ERP and it's easy to use. If you have Sage then this is a great option

Cons: It is very expensive and it's licenced by workstation. You have to buy in bundles of 2 so that drives the cost up.

Pros: Easy to use and good support. Easy to upgrade and built in reports are very useful. Does not cost a lot of money compared to other offerings.

Cons: Does not tie in to any other software that we use so everything has to be manually inputted and deleted.

Pros: We use a different company file for each location to keep track of that locations assets. We are able to create a company file to combine locations in one main file when necessary. Very easy to use program and makes calculating depreciation simple.

Cons: Some of the pre-set depreciation methods are hard to figure out which one to use. The report generating is slow.

Cons: Very hard to use. I couldn't customize reports. Difficult to communicate to other software. It's separate from our main accounting software and I had to do tons of manual adjustment to record fixed asset to the main accounting software. It has no query function. When one asset is off, it's very hard for me to find and fix it.

Pros: We have found Sage to be the most user friendly fixed assets software. It is easily searchable by any field and is very easy to navigate.

Cons: We didn't like that the software will let you duplicate records and doesn't prevent duplicate assets being entered. Wish there was a stop or at least a popup message that would help hedge that off.

Pros: Sage fixed assets has the capability to add and track several data points, which can be customized by the company. Photos and notes for each asset can be added to the asset file and retrieved at any time.

Cons: Certain data cannot be added to the main view grid, but can be added to reports, and vice versa. It's difficult to compare two different reports that pull two different sets of data because some data points are only added to one report versus another.

Comments: Being able to customize reports as well as export to formats has been a life-saver. We have never had any problems with data loss or calculations being inaccurate. Its a pretty powerful way to organize your fixed assets. The setup and menu options are intuitive. We did our setup completely on our own, without training from an implementation team. I love this!

Pros: it does do the statements and reports that we need and it does let you customize your reports

Cons: the customer service - it takes forever to reach someone. When there are updates there is always something wrong with some aspect and you have to wait until the next update is released,

Overall: The program is great and it does what we need - the only thing bad about it is when there are upgrades there is always a glitch which is fixed when the next upgrade is released. Also the customer service can be improved - they place you on hold it seems like forever.

Comments: It works fine if you want to wait 10 minutes for a report to upload. Of course, it's faster than having to do it on excel myself but I feel like they take advantage of that fact and make the software just shy of garbage so you will pay to use it.

Pros: It keeps me from doing it by hand.

Cons: It's tempermentall and shuts down frequently. The calculations are frequently a little off. Too expensive for the time I have to put into it.

Recommendations to other buyers: Yeah it works. And from what I hear other products are just as bad.

Comments: The FAS system is a very strong stand-alone fixed asset system. Capabailities include Book and tax depreciation as well as area to enter important details at the time of purchase, time of transfer etc.
Several trucking companies have implemented FAS in addition to Oracle, Dynamics, or any other accounting software.

Pros: Being able to customize reports as well as export to formats such as excel has been a life saver. We have never had any problems with data loss or calculations being inaccurate. Once you get passed some of the clunky ways it wants you to do things it becomes a pretty powerful way to organize your fixed assets.

Cons: The UI and navigating within the UI could use a lot of work. They seem to steadily improve it as they release new versions but it is still pretty clunky and takes a little bit of getting used to.

Recommendations to other buyers: As with any other software, take a look at around three other programs and compare features between them. If you can get a hold of a free limited trial that is even better.

Pros: Ease of use, even before training. There are many help tools that actually provide good assistance. The software provides many custom fields that the user can define how they want them to be presented.

Cons: It would be great if there was a "search" feature that would let you search for a specific word or wording within the asset listing, without exporting then searching.

Recommendations to other buyers: For the price of the software, it is definitely worth a look!

Pros: I have found that this product is very easy to learn with time. I have also learned how to do fixed assets by using this product.

Cons: The system seems to have a hard time thinking and processing the results.

Recommendations to other buyers: I feel that it does what it needs to do. I am not a software engineer, so I don't really know what it is that needs to be fixed. But something is causing it to run slowly on my system.

Pros: It appears to be the only DEP & Asset software out there that does everything you want for a reasonable price. I've been at 3 companies in 17 years and each one ended up purchasing it and replying on it.

Cons: The price has gone up in the last 5 years, but it still very competitive.

Recommendations to other buyers: Compare all the features to at least 5 other software out there. Then find out how much each is worth at the level you need.
