Sage 100 Contractor, formerly known as Sage Master Builder, focuses on small to midsize construction companies, whether they are a general contractor, service or specialty contractor or a home builder.
Suitable for companies that have outgrown generic accounting software, the suite of applications encompass the entire construction cycle and include accounting, estimating, project scheduling and management, job costing and service management. The software provides an interactive dashboard that provides instant visibility into things like the status of current job costs, pending operations or company performance. The dashboard also enables users to drill down into larger data sets and see further details like invoices generated or the latest change order.
Users can leverage multiple reporting templates available to generate customizable business reports as per business need. Using predefined yet customizable alerts, the system can also send out an email notifying employees of issues like an expiring certificate of insurance or a low bank balance. A centralized view of projects lets the team see anything related to a job like estimates, invoices, job cost reports, change orders, RFIs, punch lists and more.
Sage 100 Contractor also has cloud-based capabilities through Sage Construction Anywhere. Sage’s network of business partners and consultants, and their ongoing customer phone support, all specialize in construction software.

My experience with this software was excellent. I had used a basic Sage Accounting software for years and before Sage bought this particular accounting software, it was Peachtree. I loved it.
Reporting is excellent. User friendly. Ease of teaching employees. online forums are spot on for good information. Immediate help via chat or calling with more difficult issues. I love that they can help by driving my computer when I could not figure out an issue. They take fixes seriously for the next update.
Very professional looking invoicing and reporting and very easy to get exactly what you need without a bunch of drop downs and reconfiguring of the crystal reports.
There is actually nothing I dislike about this software. It is by far my favorite accounting software.

Overall this is a great program for payroll; coworkers have expressed it's simplicity in the A/R and A/P fields as well.
I use this payroll for 2 companies to process payroll for construction. The employee setup module is very straight forward and gives you may options for customized tracking (for PTO/Sick time). Daily entry for payroll is easy, the payroll and posting processes work well and the available certified payroll reports are clear and concise.
This software does not export well to excel; so if you use Excel to process data/create custom reports/run pivot tables, there is a lot of clean up involved before you can make the data Sage exports clean enough to use.

Once I understood how to work Sage, I was able to maneauver through different modules pretty quickly and process things. I enjoyed how in depth job costing was, but I wish there were simpler processes for simple tasks instead of bouncing between modules.
I liked the fact that you could be really in-depth with job costing and billing which helped pinpoint correct costs and what we should be charging in order to cover those costs and continue to profit. You were also able to customize things to fit your company if you were more technologically inclined and willing to learn the software.
It was not user friendly, especially to anyone who was already technologically challenged. You would also have to involve several modules for certain tasks in order for things to process correctly. If you made a mistake, the task of backing things out took a lot of time.

As the systems administrator I like the flexibility of the product. The report writer isn't the most friendly, but it definitely gives a lot of flexibility in creating any reports you need. Sage updates the product regularly, and over the last few years has added many useful features. Soon they will be migrating to a new database format as well.
I very much dislike that when help is needed with creating a custom report, you get referred to your reseller. Then they just want to up-sell you on everything and never really deliver on the promises.
The accounting portion of this software is very strong. Scheduling not so much. There are many useful add-ons from Sage, that enhance the software, but cost more money. However, overall, this is a great software for General Contractors or large Subcontractors.

Overall experience using Sage 100 Contractor is great.
What I really like in Sage 100 Contractor is when we start setting up the software it was very quick to go live after short period, The annual revenue for the company I was working for is 35+ million. we shifted from old software to Sage 100 Contractor within two months, I did few demonstrations for my colleague about how to use Sage 100 Contractor and all of them they found Sage 100 Contractor easy to use and very helpful for our business, and reporting in Sage 100 Contractor is great.
I didn't face any issue or something I didn't like in Sage 100 Contractor. but the developing in Sage 100 Contractor is impossible.
