Overall Satisfaction with Sage 300 Construction and Real Estate

We used it as our core accounting software for processing incoming invoices and general accounts payable tasks, tracking projected costs vs. actuals, printing cheques, processing payroll, sub-par vendor tracking and management, and some basic data extraction for pivot table generation to create some internally required reports for oversight and forecasting.
  • Very basic
  • Lack of data validation and controls
  • Extremely limited report configuration without significant customization
  • Too many arbitrary limits like vendor name that forced partial names into the address
  • Very outdated UI
  • Very siloed forcing users to open different applications for different functions
  • Accounts Payable
  • Cost Projections
  • Payroll
  • Cheque Processing
  • Bank Reconciliation
  • It forced our accounting group to manage and track many things in Excel
  • It's clunky UI has limited efficiencies and productivity
  • It's lack of evolution has trapped our financial reporting in the year of implementation
We are now migrating to Acumatica for a few main reasons:
  • Open API, which is admittedly not perfect but far superior to relying on a VM with an ODBC connection
  • Cloud-based enabling users to work from anywhere
  • Far more customizable to enable it to fit our specific use cases/needs

Would you buy Sage 300 Construction and Real Estate again?

No

I think it's only appropriate if you're already using the software as it's so antiquated and hasn't been evolving nearly quick enough to keep up with modern expectations. There is no API, making it impossible to easily integrate with other systems, which I would say, is table stakes in this modern environment.
