For small and medium business in the distribution and light manufacturing space, Sage 100 is probably the best bang for your buck. As a very scaleable system, you can modify the system to meet the needs of a growing business without making gross changes to the core of the system

It is extremely suitable for the client since for us they are all US-based companies, even though the main headquarters of our business is in Mexico.
It is less appropriate in terms of usability than taxes, since it does not include adaptability to Mexican legislation, and its deployment through customizations and reports is extremely expensive. Read full review Pros Simple to implement and use. Operation very intuitive so new employees are quickly trained. It is very flexible with many modules and many features allows for easy customization to suit particular needs of any department or company. Context sensitive help, training and support make it easy for a company to operate with out a lot of additional outside tech support. Scalable plenty of room to grow as the business grows without being bloated. Pricing is very reasonable.

Fixed Assets CS can be deployed in a virtual office setting or as a SaaS application. Fixed Assets CS also supports common depreciation methods. Read full review Cons It's painfully slow even for mid-sized businesses like ours without millions of transactions. It crashes very, very often and has numerous critical failures. Unfortunately, it's a local program so that excludes it from being used remotely. You have to be on site for it to work.

I would put this out to bid, if I were at the same organization. There have been a lot of improvements and changes in enterprise software and my preference would be to find a good web-based or cloud-based tool. Lower overall cost of ownership and improved efficiency would be my target criteria for a rebid of this.

It is easy, flexible, user friendly and feature laden. Out of the box or easily customized to meet our "wish" list . Sage offers a variety of modules and bolt-ons, user defined fields etc., allowing us to conduct business "our way" without forcing us into a one-size- fits- none mold or having to purchase expensive and cumbersome programming modifications

The platform is stable even though a version for MacOS is also missed.
In general, the user management and administration process is intuitive and once the roles are defined it is simple and easy. However, the user experience has become out of date in relation to other web-based platforms currently available on the market. Read full review Support Rating

Support for Thomson Reuters is very in-depth as they have a ton of knowledge articles that help troubleshoot common issues and gives a launching pad for users to learn more about the product and help them use the tools effectively and efficiently. When needed, reaching out to the live support is always prompt and we are able to effectively work past any issues that come up.

We had an advantage in implementing the tool in that our director of Ops had been part of the team implementing the ERP for other users so we knew what to expect and were able to avoid a lot of the challenges people sometimes face with implementations. However, the process still took far longer than desired.

I've reviewed Accpac, Syspro, SAP Business 1 and Platinum. Sage is far easier to use and setup than Syspro and SAP Business 1. Generally speaking, most accounting software does the same thing, at the end of the day, how easy is it to modify data inside the system and review to make sure that your system integrity is intact. I find that Sage 100 is excellent at these things.
