WE HAVE SAGE 100 CONTRACTOR WITH THE SERVICE MODULE. IS ANY ONE USING SAGE ANYWHERE WITH THE SERVICE MODULE?

Verified Answer
  • mep,

    Sage Construction Anywhere does intergrate Sage 100 Contractor. Currently there is no difference with the service module. We do expect that features related to service managment will be released in the future although we do not have a current timeframe.

    The curent features of Sage Construction Anywhere include:

    Collect time quickly and accurately with Time mobile app

    No more shuffling paper timesheets between the jobsite and the office. Using a mobile device, time can be collected and approved for one or multiple employees, giving quicker visibility into project labor costs and streamlining the field-to-office payroll process.

    • Submit employee time worked quickly via an iPhone or Android smartphone. Log the number and type of hours worked, linking the      time to a job cost code.
    • Supervisors or project managers can review, adjust, and approve employee time whenever and wherever it makes sense—whether via an      iPad on the job site or using a PC in the office— thus shortening review time and ensuring reporting accuracy.
    • Streamline and jumpstart the payroll process through tight integration with Sage 300 Construction and Real Estate or Sage 100      Contractor Payroll.
    • Gain quicker visibility to labor issues in the field so you can make adjustments sooner and preserve your profit margin. See all      reported time and easily filter by specific cost codes to watch for areas sensitive to potential labor overages on the job.

    Centralized, web-based Project Files

    With Project Files, team members can instantly share the latest and most accurate project information on a secured centralized hub - documents, drawings and photos - so that decisions are solid and projects move forward. Each team member, employees or subcontractors, see only those documents they need for their job.

    • Easily upload and access construction project photos, files, and more from the field using an easy to-use mobile application (app) on an iPhone or Android device.
    • Confidently extend access to everyone involved on a project while ensuring each team member is provided access to only those documents and folders designated important to their specific role.
    • Track and organize the revisions of each important file for each project. No more digging through email, shuffling through paper, or needing to contact others to locate the drawing you need when you need it.
    • Project team members retain a comprehensive and searchable audit log for extensive file history visibility when needed. You’ll have the history to support any team communications or conflicts, or to respond to legal discovery.
    • Ensure everyone is aware of changes or issues through notifications that can be seen through a project home page or email.

    Project Reports

    Secure access to Sage 100 Contractor or Sage 300 Construction or Real Estate reports provides you with the most current project information from anywhere, anytime. When you are at a jobsite, at home, or at a meeting, you can immediately pull up the details you need to make informed decisions or answer a critical question.

    • Access project reports from Sage 300 Construction and Real Estate or Sage 100 Contractoreven when you are away from the office. No more phone calls to the office or waiting for anyone to pull a report.
    • View project reports on a mobile device or on any PC. Whether you’re at the job site, sitting in an owner meeting, or at home, you’ve got instant access to the details you need to move forward.
    • Be confident that only those with permissions see the reports they are authorized to access and that your data is secured through an industry-leading cloud services platform, Microsoft® Windows Azure™.

    Sage Construction Anywhere is a cloud-based construction software service designed to keep construction projects moving in real time. The introductory release provides a set of web-based Core Services, as well as a way to securely connect the back office with the cloud.

  • The time can be entered using Sage Construction Anywhere, but there is currently not an integrated interface to enter and send the work order information to your back office from the cloud. Service Management is a feature set that we are currently looking at for a future release but there is no set time frame.

    As a workaround, an employee can enter their time and enter the work order number into Notes field. This note will be sent to the back office where a Payroll user can manually use that note to enter the Service Order# into the 5-5-1 window.

  • so the service techs can track their time on a work order?

  • The time can be entered using Sage Construction Anywhere, but there is currently not an integrated interface to enter and send the work order information to your back office from the cloud.
