Enhancing User Experience for Sage 300 CRE
We’re officially launching our Sage 300 integration! This integration and a few others are available immediately for all our users. Now, users can quickly move jobs, commitments, vendors, invoices, and more. Customers can keep pay applications, lien waivers, and change orders in one cloud-based location. Furthermore, users can transfer data between Sage’s powerful ERP software and Flashtract’s point-system solutions.
What does this mean for Flashtract and Sage 300 Users?
We’ve worked hard to build out several core features between the two software systems. The features of the Sage 300 and Flashtract integrations include:
- Seamless, automatic transfer of data between Flashtract and Sage 300
- Transfer of Jobs, Commitments, Commitment Change Orders, AP Vendors, and AP invoices.
- Move data from Sage to the Flashtract counterparts and vice-versa.
- Approved Subcontractor Invoices within Flashtract will now also update AP Invoices within Sage as they are accepted.
- Flashtract provides the leading subcontractor experience, boasting a 100% adoption rate among Subcontractors.
- Eliminate costly and wasteful paper processes through cloud storage.
- Find all your digital documents in one place.
Working Towards the Future
Both Sage & Flashtract are always hard at work innovating towards new solutions. Several years ago, most construction businesses and management did not use the Cloud. These days, almost all construction companies are using or considering integrating Cloud software.
“Construction is an exciting industry that’s full of innovation, and we’re excited to be part of the digital transformation that’s driving efficiencies and improvements in the back office.” Shahrukh Arif, Head of Product at Flashtract, said. Shahrukh orchestrated and assisted in the development of this integration.
The Power of Point Solutions
But as most companies know, it’s not easy to find one program or application that does it all. That’s where point solutions like Flashtract come in.
“It’s those point systems that are continuing to evolve in the market that in many cases may have deeper functionality than some of the ERPs. And products like Flashtract are an example of that.” Dennis Stejskal, Director of Construction and Real Estate at Sage, said. “This verticalization in this driving of point systems just continues to drive the need for interoperability, the need to let these systems talk to each other.”
Large companies like Sage can focus on broad brushstrokes and meeting general needs. With integration capability, they don’t have to worry about building out specialized software for themselves. Additionally, powerful integrations give customers flexibility and specialization. Perhaps most importantly- customers can choose what they want in their software.
The problem lies when multiple cloud-based programs don’t work together. Suddenly, companies are having to transfer data between programs manually. Or they may be spending lots of money to build custom integrations. Rather than be one more program that your company has to juggle, Flashtract is hard at work integrating with some of the largest ERP and accounting software services. We’re thrilled to work alongside Sage to ensure that all construction businesses have access to the functionality they need.
