Sage
I believe that Sage is not suited well for our company because we are too large. To add new users we have to go into all 200+ companies and add their access individually. This is time-consuming and not a good way to manage access.

Samsara
The best part about the software is its openness to integration. With a flexible API, we integrated a lot of modules with the software, thus ensuring the safety of history/records as per our needs without having to pay more for customization. The system is not only user-friendly but well thought out. The ease of access to the system leads to lower training costs and ensures that the team is chunking out savings and driving efficiencies throughout. Since Samsara does not discriminate on the minimum number of vehicles/assets that are to be tracked, it makes it far easier to utilize. However, on things to improve - Samsara can have the software tweaked to cater to more than the construction industry, whereby companies such as us who are into multiple domains can benefit from the same. Also, if there were a one-time cost for availing services, it would mean the world to clients like us!

Support Rating
Sage
Rather lackluster. Our account manager generally works with Sage's support team and oftentimes finds herself frustrated with a lack of understanding from the support team. Additionally, when IT is attempting to update the system (which from my understanding is a bear of epic complex proportions) they often times find themselves frustrated and at a loss for what needs done.

[I believe that] Sage is nowhere near as good as Oracle. Oracle is easy to use and administer and the features are much better. The system is cloud-based so there are fewer issues with on-prem or virtual servers.

Samsara
Great software for managing and tracking assets, identifying maintenance/breakdowns in assets, and ensuring the best productivity per asset. Cost analysis benefit / Service provision for 1 unit as well - which is good enough for testing purposes Ease of use, dashboards are easy to view and understand Comprehensive collection of data - presentation of information in required format Limitation on flexible use of API, thus leading to repetition of information/data leading to inefficient hours Flexibility in the units provided/not much to do in terms of modification of assets, its just a plug and play system.
