Sage 300cloud is a great option when it comes to cloud accounting/tracking software. In comparison to Sage's other products, Sage 300cloud is the only cloud/web based option with modern UI's and more intuitive interfaces. Additionally, Sage 300cloud offers an entire system of customer integrations that become available dependent on subscription level. Sage 300cloud also offers integrations between other Sage products (AP, CRM, etc) that allows for better automation and efficiency

Yardi Voyager is well suited for any management company in the multifamily or commercial space and is a worthwhile competitor to other options in the space - MRI Software, Realpage, Resite, etc. For those med-large enterprises that value an intuitive and straightforward accounting and leasing system, and also work with other vendors that need to integrate with their ERP system, this is a great option. There is a large ramp-up time, requiring many company resources, and licensing is quite expensive, so this solution may not be for those companies with a small budget or personnel resources.
Read full review Pros Overall ease of use and intuitive navigation - minimal training has been required to use the system efficiently and effectively Customer Inquiry - quickly see outstanding documents and drill down on any item (open or paid) to find the information you need Most reports are easy to export into a workable Excel format using the Excel - data only or csv file format. Read full review Yardi Property Management particularly excels at creating a system where it is easy to leave feedback for property managers because the data is available up front. Yardi is also a useful tool at integrating property management across the entire platform. It can be used for asset management as well even for the most nitty gritty details. It is also convenient to edit expenses inputted by the accounting department and managing those expenses forward for future budgeting. Read full review Cons Little things, like changing the company name - are more difficult than we would like (We used to be MSDSSAB but legally shortened it to MSDSB). A management financial reporting tool with live access - to premade reports - without paying an arm and a leg would be appreciated. More training opportunities in local areas - or nearby - would be appreciated... Read full review In my experience there's a fairly steep learning curve for a new user to be able to navigate the system While there's diverse functionality, many items seem buried in menus or obscure places, particularly the first time you're trying to find them Getting used to the refresh functionality in some parts of the system can be challenging if you're used to a system that automatically updates when new filters are applied Read full review Likelihood to Renew

We have invested 5 years of setup, implementation and training on Voyager. It's doing a very good job for us and I feel we've only scratched the surface of its capabilities. Yardi support has been very responsive with very little down time. The training materials are great from Client Central
Read full review Usability
Sage 300cloud is intuitive and user friendly after some training. It does require implementation and training but once that's done, this software is easy to use and navigate. Support for Sage 300cloud is spot on and offers assistance over the simplest to [the] most complex of tasks. Finding information or learning new tasks within Sage 300cloud is relatively easy and educational.

I'm coming from the perspective of a fairly tech-adept person, so I didn't find the system too hard to learn. That said, I do feel some of the buried menus and the system's own internal search feature could use some improvement, but I have that feeling about the vast majority of CRMs I've ever used. There may be a little bit of a struggle to onboard/train up someone who isn't used to this sort of system, but once up and going it should be smooth sailing.

Turnover is high in the Sage Support department so sometimes it is difficult to get a rep who knows the issue well. Reps are good and getting assistance when they need it. Sometimes support is more interested in closing issue than actually solving problem. It can be difficult at times to have issues escalated but overall the support is good.

The local office is very knowledgeable, however recently it seems that Yardi has begun to route calls offshore and the knowledge base there does not seem to be as strong as the USA based support centers. All customizations are done by offshore personnel, which presents issues in terms of the language barrier and time zone differences.

If you are converting from another system, grouping your properties by subsidy type seemed to help us. We were able to focus on a half dozen properties at a time, rather than the entire portfolio.

Onesite was broken, a lot. Yardi Voyager has been a much more stable platform. We have been operational for 3 years now and I cannot say that we have had any software downtime in 3 Years. But with Onesite, it was common to be down at least once a month for something that was not working correctly.
Read full review Return on Investment It allows our company to efficiently and effectively maintain and track our job cost. Its reliable performance allows us to function continually. It also provides our division managers with reports that they can use to determine where we are experiencing problems. Read full review We initially moved to Yardi from paper ledgers. This had a tremendous time-saving effect. Product was confusing and required training for some of our older staff members. Clients that used the product were initially hesitant to pay for the added cost, but with time were able to see the benefit to their software. Read full review
