Taking Control of Your Construction and Real Estate Projects with Sage 300

When it comes to the construction and real estate industries, precision and confidence are two vital components for achieving success. Both industries require meticulous attention to detail to ensure that projects are completed on time, within budget, and with exceptional quality. A small error or oversight can lead to significant delays and cost overruns, which can hurt your bottom line and reputation.

This is where Sage 300 Construction and Real Estate comes in as an essential tool for businesses in these industries. It is a comprehensive business management solution designed to assist contractors, developers, and property managers in building and managing projects and properties seamlessly. Sage 300 Construction and Real Estate is an innovative software that provides features and tools to manage every aspect of construction and real estate businesses, from accounting to project management.

Go Paperless

Sage Paperless Construction is a software solution that integrates with Sage 100 Contractor or Sage 300 Construction and Real Estate. Its purpose is to simplify processes from the beginning to the end of a project and save time, reduce costs, and increase productivity. With this software, you can easily store, retrieve, and route electronic content, automate routing and approval workflows, and manage invoices and other critical documents efficiently. 

It also helps improve productivity and efficiency by automating accounts payable workflows and offers centralized storage and protection of vital business content. The software includes an easy search tool and predefined rules for routing documents, and users can capture, upload, or import any type of document from any location. Going paperless with Sage Paperless Construction is an excellent way to digitize your construction or real estate business. 

Project Management 

Sage 300 Construction and Real Estate is a comprehensive project management software that streamlines project management and facilitates easy access to project-related information. The integration of accounting, estimating, and purchasing functions provides a one-stop shop for all your project management needs, making it easier to access contracts, plans, requests for information, and other project-related information. With a centralized source of information, you can always stay updated on project progress and have a complete picture of the project status at any given time.

Furthermore, the software comes with a set of tools that enable you to create and track common project documents such as RFIs, meeting minutes, submittals, and transmittals. You can review the RFIs that haven’t received a response and understand the potential impact of outstanding requests on a project’s cost and schedule. 

Additionally, the software provides an easy-to-use correspondence log where you can add email exchanges and project-related documents for future reference or retrieval when needed. This makes for convenient and thorough logging of all correspondence between project participants, ensuring that nothing falls through the cracks.

Inquiries and reports also enable you to delve into the details behind the numbers. When a client asks about the specifics of an invoice, you can quickly provide them with an answer. Job cost reports can also include unposted costs, giving you a complete picture of the project even when costs have yet to be posted. The ability to access a detailed analysis of project data empowers you to make data-driven decisions and helps you optimize project performance.

Property Management 

Sage 300 Construction and Real Estate is a versatile software that not only offers construction management but also includes a Property Management application.
