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

  • Since the software is built with your needs in mind, it can be tailored to your specific needs.
  • System security is also created with your specific needs in mind and can be extremely detailed for various roles within the organization.
  • The various modules integrate well, if thought through system processes when building.

Cons
Sage
  • 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.

  • Their layout and limited web capabilities are a turn-off
  • They lack basic functionality in their web [version]
  • The implementation phase is bumpy since their guides and process documents are not step by step and are usually confusing

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.

Usability
Sage
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

Implementation Rating
Sage
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.

I have used Fund EZ and QuickBooks. Unit4 is for larger organizations and was needed for our scaling.

  • Our business processes were in flux when the initial build of our system was taking place - this made lives very difficult. Make sure processes are set!
  • Time - beyond what could have been imagined - this is a huge project, that needs proper resources assigned to it within a company when planning to install.
