Pros of Sage X3
- Unlike traditional ERP, Sage X3 is highly-configurable. Aside from its flexibility, it offers Enhanced Executive Dashboards, Customizable Workbench, full Workflow Engine, and native E-signature features. Individual users can tailor their screens to their specific needs.
- This ERP has robust native functionality found in more expensive ERPs while providing a solution with quick and simple implementation. It is a modern end-to-end software that doesn’t require numerous third-party add-ons that increase training time, cost, risk, and maintenance.
Cons of Sage X3
- Due to its functionality and configuration capabilities, the successful implementation of Sage X3 almost always requires the assistance of certified consulting resources. Organizations need to have proper budgeting to account for the professional services.
- The software includes its full development toolset at no additional charge. However, few companies have the in-house expertise for a 4GL language. If customization is necessary, consulting resources can help, adding to the expense of successful implementation.
