Comments: Easy to train new users, easy to use and the best thing you'll ever use for construction.

Pros: They have a database that is very useful and is super easy to update and add new people, etc. The software itself is super easy to use and be trained on. Makes a construction job way easier and connects you to all of the information for each job when you go into it so you don't feel like you have jump through hoops to find what you're looking for.

Cons: Update all parts of your software, some users may need them and use the more basic features so it is essential to keep everything up to date which seems to be favored towards the more popular features.

Pros: Reliable software with an outstanding and solid support team. Sage is one of the top industry leader for the construction software field, intermediate complexity level to integrate with third party apps makes this software an a remarkable solution for those companies that already have their Master set well defined within construction standards,

Cons: Total cost of ownership can be overwhelming without the proper capacity assessment. Sage University to train your Admins and staff can raise up the bar of the investment. Custom features requires special attention from specialized consultants.

Pros: Ability to drill down for detail. Ability to find help in several different places IE Sage City, knowledge bases, help menu, customer support, Sage University.

Cons: Sage University is too pricey. There should be more free classes. Now they are only for the new features or modules. Frequently I have to wait for a level 2 to answer questions; however I've been using the software for 13 years!

Overall: Ability to handle multiple companies with part time hours. Currently on the road to paperless.

Pros: Input is quick and easy. It has been around long enough that most bugs are sorted out unlike some software. Once you learn some of the tricks/shortcuts it is even easier.Updates are frequent and the help desk resolves issues quickly. Able to customize reports.

Cons: Like most software it takes some time to setup. Customizing to your business is a feature but then you need to learn to us crystal in order to make updates. Closing month in one module doesn't always update or close the others.

Overall: Reporting is relatively easy once you have done the set-up. Able to export to excel for outside users such as auditors is helpful.

Overall this is a good software product. Just needs a little polishing...

Cons: When you delete a transaction in any module the history shows as a reversal, I wish it would just disappear.

Pros: The separate modules work very good. Certified Payrolls are easily done thru the payroll module. Payables and Receivables modules work nicely, with some help. Has a ton of reports available.

Cons: Although it has a lot of reports, they are hard to find the one you want/need. The separate modules seem like they came from separate companies sometimes and without an expert help or customer support, it would be really hard to get what you need out of them. I have had to pay for custom reports to be done to get what I need several times.

Pros: Support is somewhat helpful and their KB is extensive, which is good because you'll need to utilize it plenty.

Cons: Software is outdated, glitchy, finicky, and had to manage. The UI is a mish-mash of options that don't clearly define what they do. Database is required to reside on site so forget using it over a VPN.

If you are a professional contractor, I highly recommend this product.

Cons: This application needs more notification in terms of licences. Support is very expensive and can be a bit annoying if you have no prior accounting experience. Great application non the less.

Comments: Have been a user for over 30 years, dos based till current

Pros: Very user friendly, the help button and the knowledge base are awesome places to go to when you need help in finding an answer to how to. Each application is easy to do the work flow. If you make an error in any one entry, the process to fix the mistake or the entry to reverse the error is a very easy step in all of the applications. I love the software!!

Cons: My only issue is job cost is not user friendly with cash management in respect to if you enter a line item job cost that affects cash then you also have to enter the same in cash management to stay in balance.

This software launched our traditional construction business into the 21st century!

Comments: It would be better if it would connect freely with programs similar to Procore that perform the Project Management side of Construction so it matches better with the accounting side.

Pros: It will allow you to link payroll with Accounting with Subcontractors, Change Orders and then Billing to the Client

Cons: The product is slow to use and the program does not have defaults for items frequently used. You have to select where you want to be, every time you make a new entry rather than automatically going to where you just were

Pros: I like the conditioning of items and how an individual may customize a report. It handles multi-company accounting... very helpful.

Cons: The learning curve is a little steeper and their are some "canned" reports still not available. Requires a fair amount of processing staff.

Pros: Stable backend software that has been around long enough to have lots of 3rd party add-ons to do pretty much anything you would need.

Cons: Some of the architecture is a little dated so some things require convoluted workarounds. The user interface can also be a little dated. Newer modules have modern interfaces, original modules have old interfaces. Service Management is a backend processor only - the user interface is terrible.

Overall: Enabled us to use more efficient processes and procedures - we are now entirely paperless with respect to A/P and becoming more so with the rest of our processes.

Comments: If you already have SAGE 300 ERP and need to manage projects and job costings, you need not go any further. Truth be told, if I didn't have all that stuff and found this first it would convince me to buy the other stuff.

Pros: I have SAGE 300 ERP with the PJC module and to tell you the truth we had been looking for a system to manage costs of our projects for years that the years would actually use and not complain about. PJC is great but we just couldn't get the users to be all in with its use. Then I discovered CRE aka Timberline. I cannot believe this thing existed, where have you been all my life. This solution integrates with my existing ERP modules and PO making my life so much simpler. It integrates with outlook, I can export to excel and do analysis. I can manage invoices, check late payments, make change request and manage contracts and subcontracts ALL in the same solution!. I can manage project retainage and even choose when payments and costs hit my GL. I can give my managers the reports they need on the fly and customize them as needed. I cannot say enough about this software. I also love that I am not crowded with information. The drill down feature makes everything clean. I am literally in love and the users are all smiles now. It makes you happy to see a pile of paper to input. soon I will be almost paperless.

Comments: I like the ease and use of the software, when it comes to the accounting aspect, but the project management part is still a learning curve.

Pros: Very ease of use for accounting purposes. It provides the full range of the accounting cycle for financial management reporting. Love it!!!

Cons: Project management in relationship to accounting is just okay. Project Managers here at my company find it very tedious, for what they need.

Pros: Variety of functionality. Mulitple features. Good customer service associates are available for help / solve the issues. They are very knowledgable.

Cons: A bit tough to set up the software. More specific information is required rather than reading and finding it yourself. The software can be little more user-friendly. Not accurate answers are provided when we run the report.

Pros: User friendly for new employees. Has all modules you will need for construction software. Really liked it at first.

Cons: Customer service is lacking. You pay a lot of money for something you end up looking up yourself or they look it up and read to you and could do that yourself. Having used the product I usually know more than they do on specifics. It is very frustrating. The training online is very old fashion needs to be updated.

Pros: How every facet of a business is all integrated, from Job costing, payroll, accounts payable/receivable and general ledger

Cons: Had the estimating program for awhile. Found it a little cumbersome for a small business as we don't have the personnel to keep the data base up to date on a regular basis. Nice how it integrates with Job Costing however.

Cons: It hard to teach to others. Not the easiest user interface. People find it confusing. But I make it easy by setting up shortcuts to the tasks they use (clear lien waivers or the couple common job cost reports the project managers use)

Comments: I feel that the knowledgebase needs a lot of work. Too many steps to get to your product. Most of the time, if I pull up a request that has more than one page of listings, I get an error message when I try to go to the second page. It has become almost useless.

Pros: I like the simplicity of the accounting side and the integration between job cost and general ledger. I feel it is user friendly for learning the product in almost all aspects.

Cons: Would like to see a simpler change order process with more connections between the subcontractor and the owner changes. Would like to see fewer glitches such as the "use last job" option does not work in project management under certain versions and occasionally I get invoices that show that the payment is open when the checks are cleared.

Pros: The payroll module is great. It has the ability to produce Certified Payroll Reports and with the Aatrix feature, all your quarter and year end taxes are easily done for you.

Cons: I don't like the Accounts Receivable Module. It's cumbersome and not easy to use. The Aging Report is useless. I have to do a manual report.

Cons: I don't find any faults with the performance. I use the help for each module, and sometimes find it not as easy to ask the right question to get the answer to the problem.

Pros: Our company specializing in millwright, rigging and custom metal fabrication and Sage 300 CRE helps our company with certified payroll, union payroll and dues, job costing, purchase orders and subcontractor tracking. Also account payable and accounts receivable modules are easy to use, and it really helps us to streamline our operation. Sage Customer Support are most wonderful people to help solve issues you might have with financials or with a payroll.

Cons: The only con with Sage 300 CRE - it will take time to be trained all the modules this software has to offer. If you make a mistake my advice is to look at Sage Knowledge Base for answers or call Sage Support Team to make an appointment to help resolved the issue. You have to be very careful and pay very close attention with accounting dates and closed months with this software.

Comments: I don't have a reason to change software products.

Pros: Ease of use Easy to learn and get accustomed to Has been around a long time Recent improvements (last 7-8 years) to the software (Xcel downloads, employee set ups, My Assistant) More 3rd party products that communicate well or easily with Sage 300 (i.e. PO/AP software, electronic clocks)

Cons: I don't like the extra layer on support. It is inevitable that we need the 2nd level for almost every call. No drill down links between modules. There are a few things (I can't think all of now) that you can tell an accountant was not completely involved in setting up. One example, putting a negative in front a number in the credit column on some reports and not on others. The inconsistency can be confusing. Is it a credit or a negative credit (which = debit).

Comments: Love the system despite the checks issue.

Pros: we love the upper management access to information and reporting. Easy for them to access information that directly affects the business without asking for information from each department.

Cons: THE CHECKS - If the alignment on checks is off, they look terrible. The checks have to come with the lines and headers already printed, which really causes problems. This changes with each printer used. Solution? Print the entire stub including headers and lines so that the checks look great no matter the printer or module!

Pros: Sage 300 is a user-friendly, fairly easy to navigate software. It is especially helpful in tracking subcontractor change orders and budget adjustments. The standard reports provide information that is easy to understand and is very helpful in figuring out where your project stands financially at any given point in time.

Cons: It is easy for users to document change orders inconsistently, there is a lot of room for variance which means that the documents produced can vary in appearance from one user to the next.

Sage 300 has served our needs with their selection of reports and access to our HRIS.

Comments: I highly recommend Sage 300 to any contractor out there. It's ease of use and numerous modules make tracking things like inventory, job costing, cash management etc a breeze. All modules sync up to the General Ledger and at the end of each month, we are able to see how we are progressing. This has helped us catch numerous mistakes on our end. Whenever there is a problem, we will phone the Sage call center. They are able to troubleshoot things in no time. Not only do they help fix the mistake they also teach you how to spot them yourself. The odd time we have had to escalate a problem to the programmers they always end up contacting us back the same day. I started using Sage 2 years ago with very little knowledge of the platform and accounting in general and through the proper training, customer service, excellent help articles and Sage U I can confidently say that I have mastered this program. I could never see myself using another product after Sage 300.

Pros: Ease of use Customer Service Training and Sage U Reporting Custom Reports to fit your business needs.

Cons: Other than the odd Software Glitch which Sage is more than happy to fix I have no real complaints. Anytime I seem to bring something up that would make the product better Sage seems to be working on/implementing that change.

Pros: It meets the needs of construction companies and allows for a full variety of modules that are integrated to prepare financial statements. Technical support is very useful but the frequency of my calls to get help should be less.

Cons: The linkages between modules can get confusing since I am required to post in multiple modules in order to retrieve the data that I require in one module.

Sage is complex, amazing and expensive.

Comments: If I wasn't working such long and demanding hours, I would like to look into Sage University educational opportunities...as I do believe many questions I STILL have, could be answered there. ONE THING that would be useful, IMHO, would be a detailed listing of the online classes/tutorials that are available, and the list of topics/subjects that they deal with.

Pros: Sage is an amazing product, with so MANY complex programs and modules. There are (literally) dozens of reports and functions that I still know little to nothing about (after 3 yrs of working with the product). It's got everything a general contract would ever need, and then some. Customer support (GOLD) is awesome (tho expensive) . 99% of the time, I have had pleasant, knowledgeable, helpful, experienced assistance from Customer Support. The individuals who work in Customer Support helped me make it that first year, and there is no question of that. Their patience and their availability (and their sense of humor) helped me retain my sanity, that first year (04/14 - 04/15)....hands down.

Cons: The complexity of it....each module is multi-faceted and highly complex (and complicated). If a person comes on the scene (such as myself) with no prior construction experience, it's very difficult to simply "pick it up". Also, In order to have Gold Support (a genuine necessity, unless the office employee has a degree in accounting...OR...10 years of prior construction experience) is very expensive. We are a small construction company, and the thousands of dollars we pay, each year, for Gold Support, is not an easy check to write.

Comments: Overall I think Sage 300 is the best software in the JC accounting area that there is.

Pros: most of the time it is very self evident about how to get around the software and how to use. The menus are easy to follow and the support from the consultants, TUG and Sage is very helpful to the user.

Cons: Need so have some better enhancements to AR ( Zero Deposits) some things that are so easy in other software programs seem so hard to complete in Sage 300

Pros: What I like best about the software is it is easy to get around in and user friendly.

Cons: The AR needs to be improved, an AR report shouldn't take hours to run. I have to run the report before I leave at night and still have to wait in the morning for my report to actually print.

Overall: Started working at this company and was given little training. I was able to maintain around easily in the SAGE and before I new it, I was closing projects out and cleaning up open payables. SAGE is user friendly.

Comments: I find the software extremely easy to use and manipulate. Doing "what if scenarios" is a snap. Sage provides a permanent record for estimating which is repeatability, assemblies and models that provide fast and accurate results, and data that is not easily corrupted. The software is so much easier to maintain than most other electronic estimating methods that I have used; namely, Excel.

Comments: From the accounting standpoint, Sage 300 offers everything you would need to get the job done at a basic level from a general contractor's standpoint. However, the adaptability of the software is very poor and there are features that have been locked in which either do not make sense or make reconciling or reviewing your work extremely difficult (more than necessary).

Pros: Has Progress Billing capabilities

Cons: Doesn't have much else

Pros: Attractive presentation, icons, etc. Not too many updates to make the software confusing, once you learn how to do things, they pretty much stay where they've always been.

Cons: Can be pricey depending on the type of package purchased, number of users or version of software. Not as user-friendly as some other software out there.

Pros: It is very difficult for someone to go into the product and make changes unintentionally.

Cons: It can be difficult to create customized reports and it is costly to add additional modules.

Overall: I am manager of accounting for a low income housing construction contractor. We use Sage 300 Construction and Real Estate for our job costing and general ledger accounting. I have found this product to be efficient, but not very user friendly. It is not easily compatible with Microsoft excel or other spreadsheet programs without the purchase of additional modules. Additional modules can be purchased, but are costly.

Recommendations to other buyers: It will get the job done, but may not be the most user friendly product on the market.

Comments: We were impressed by what Sage 300 CRE can offer and we consider that it is a reliable software, however, compared to other software solutions on the market, it doesn't look user-friendly which would make it difficult to implement and work with.

Pros: This software has almost all of the features we were looking for, with project management and accounting integrated which was one of our main requirements.

Cons: They have to update the look of their dashboard and all related screens, including the accounting part. Fairly expensive as well.

Recommendations to other buyers: It is definitely a software worth considering,

Comments: Coming from Simply and QuickBooks this software take you way beyond their functionality. Highly recommend for any construction companies to take this software on as it really goes above and beyond allowing you to track multiple projects, invoice using different products. The app entry allows such variations including Manual Cheque, E-transfers, Credit Card (entry by a vendor) and regular cheque runs. As a company we want to streamline double payments and this system allows us to catch many duplicate submissions. I can't say enough of how happy I am that it integrates with Excel and if you don't want to invest in excel custom reports if your accountant uses ODBC at all they can extract the information easily.

Pros: AP system (easy of entry, avoid duplicates Job Cost (track multiple projects, ensure they are invoiced, reports by vendor, by code) Cash Management System(reconcile your statements so easily, transfers between companies are so simplified, make an entry on the fly) GL (reports ...allow you to analyze your accounts)

Cons: Financial Reporting (out of the box reports are functional but not friendly to them eye comparable to simply/QuickBooks) but they do the job but would be nice to have better out of the box reports. That being said you can also order customer reports if that is what you are looking for.

Recommendations to other buyers: You can't go wrong if you are having a hard time tracking costs and staying on top of things in construction this is the product for you.
