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.

Training was great but now it is hard to find someone that will help us. [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] knew everything and wish we could call one person to help us. You lost a great person. Would be nice to call someone that knows our system and could show us the best way to get what we want. Sometimes it is just knowing where to go.
It makes payroll a lot faster
We can run reports and see if the job we did where the profit and loses were so next time we bid a job we can adjust
Sage Service Operation Cant see where the guys are and if they are even working. Can't log in a new job from my phone. Need to have sage on my phone for that and that in not happening.
If have a problem have to go through Chat and several people before someone will log into me computer and I can show them the problem to get it fixed.

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.

Really like the software and way it works. Just wish it weren't so hard to get it running and updated, etc. It seems to get getting easier but still a task at times.
When the program is finally set up and running , it works great and can get some really great reports. The reports you need can be difficult to set up but when done, they can create a wealth of knowledge at your fingertips
It is really hard to get set up and running like desired. It has taken us several years to get it to where we get "some" of the info we need.
