Overall Satisfaction with Sage 300 ERP

It is being used across the entire organization. It is the backbone of the organization; being used for A/P for paying bills to vendors whether they be individuals, companies or government, payroll for over 200 staff and receiving payments (A/R) from the private and public sector. The G/L is the 'go to' for budgeting purposes - as well as financial reports to keep programs in line.
  • Payroll is strong - very happy with integration with our scheduling software for EMS as well as the salaried employees.
  • The reporting, though sometimes cumbersome to set up - is strong once it is in place.
  • The G/L is accessible by all upper management - and used to see how close to the budget each area is.
  • 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...
  • Hard to say - Accpac (in one form or another) is all we have ever used, thus there is no real comparison to make to show impact vs another application.
  • Sage 300 ERP is the backbone of our organization - efficiently dealing with payroll and budgets in excess of 30 million dollars per year.
We have been an Accpac company since day one (1999). We have not tried a competitor, although some of our 'sister organizations' have switched to Altus Dynamics recently. There are also some Great Plains users that we talk to once in a while, but at this time we are not looking to replace Sage 300 ERP.
I think it is well suited to companies with more than 50 employees and a dedicated finance department staff... but it is expensive to maintain and it does tend to be customized to the will of the finance department lead/manager - which can make transition an issue for the successor when the time comes.
