Aconex

Aconex is well suited to offices that have document standards across the board, that is the same identifiers for drawings and documents. Aconex is intelligently programmed to extract data from filenames, and has fields upon entering data for the review process. I have not come across a scenario where Aconex is less appropriate so far in my use.

Sage 100 Contractor

It is well suited to anyone who has experience with a variety of accounting software, or someone who has a mathematics degree, as I do, and software is just a simple puzzle. I would say based on the cost, it would be best for a company that knows it's going to have a large client base and or government contracts. A small business starting out would be good but could be overkill for the first year.

Sage 100 Contractor

  • Payroll processing using Sage Timesheets. Makes online timesheets available to an employee anywhere he/she has an internet connection. This results in better record keeping.
  • Project costing. Between what I do in Sage and what I do in Sage Timesheets, I can project cost in minutes instead of making the data work in the clumsy and time consuming way it is done using just the Sage 50 or 100.
  • Project reporting is now streamlined using the same pairing of software.

Sage 100 Contractor

  • Making time and material billings easier by complying with my proposal requirements.
  • Reducing the cost of support, since I hardly use it.
  • I don't like the reviews since we do a lot of small projects along with some big ones. Billings or invoices from vendors that have the same amount always trigger a question. Therefore I don't do the reviews anymore. It's so much nothing.

Alternatives Considered

Aconex

Aconex's document control workflow allows for multiple versions of the same revision, enabling markups to be seen and document history as appropriate. This is on par with SOLIDWORKS EPDM, and is by far better than InEight's TeamBinder, as the originator and uploader of the document are able to change the version without the need for an administrator.

I have use Sage 50, Sage 90, Peachtree Quantum, QuickBooks, Great Plains. They are all good for what they can do. Sage 100 Contractor is the best at what it does. It's a good fit.

  • It's had mostly a positive impact - solutions to my problems with accounting integrity.
  • Solutions for happier employees because they have portable time sheets. This makes me happier because I've made it work so I have less to do.
  • I can quickly report on any project with a combination of software.
