Hosted Sage 300 Construction and Real Estate

Hosted Sage300 OTNO Blog

When hosted by IronOrbit, Sage 300 Construction and Real Estate (formerly known as Timberline)—software that tens of thousands of businesses in the construction industry use to increase their efficiency and organization—is more accessible, convenient, cost-effective, reliable, and secure.

According to a press release from Sage North America, Sage 300 Construction and Real Estate is “the construction industry’s most widely used business management solution,” with 40,000 active customers. CTS Guides recommends Sage 300 as “a good fit for general contractors and companies working in the real estate development, home building and residential remodeling markets.” Meanwhile, Software Advice points out in this article that Sage 300 Construction and Real Estate, “reflecting Sage’s heritage in the accounting software industry…provides a deep level of accounting functionality.”

Sage 300 enables construction companies to:

  • Manage and track their finances
  • Store and organize their electronic files
  • Assign and monitor the progress of project tasks, goals, and schedules
  • Predict costs
  • Manage inventory
  • Track tenants and leases

Sage 300 Construction and Real Estate can be deployed as an on-premise IT solution (i.e., installed on onsite servers and accessed from stationary PC workstations), but when hosted by IronOrbit the software becomes more accessible, convenient, cost-effective, reliable, and secure:

  • Increased accessibility.

IronOrbit’s Hosted Sage 300 can be accessed from anywhere with any Internet-connected device. This enables a construction company’s employees to access the program when at the construction site. It also lets construction firms maintain a single, centralized deployment of Sage 300, even if they have multiple offices or a lot of remote workers and offsite project partners.

  • Less hassles and costs.

With IronOrbit Hosted Sage 300, construction companies don’t have to purchase any onsite servers or hire any on-premise IT personnel. IronOrbit takes care of managing, maintaining, and protecting all of the hardware and software of the Sage 300/Timberline deployment. Our Hosted Sage 300 solutions also come with full data backups (performed daily) and 24x7x365 all-inclusive technical support.

  • Better performance, reliability, and security.

IronOrbit Sage 300 solutions are monitored and maintained 24x7x365 by our knowledgeable and experienced technicians. To maximize the performance, reliability, and security of our Hosted Sage 300 solutions, all of them are hosted on private, dedicated servers, optimized with Atomic Speed Technology, and protected by our comprehensive Orbital Security System (firewalls, antivirus, IPS/IDS, file encryption, etc.).

  • Increased scalability.

Users, storage capacity, and processing power can be added to an IronOrbit Sage 300 deployment at any time. The scalability of IronOrbit Sage 300 makes it easier for general contractors and construction companies to integrate external project partners; to support new projects or unexpectedly large or complicated projects; and to archive the files of completed projects.

  • Easier deployment and decommissioning.

It’s much easier and quicker to sign up for IronOrbit Sage 300 Hosting than to purchase and set up an on-site IT infrastructure for the application. With IronOrbit Sage 300 Hosting, general contractors and construction companies also aren’t saddled with a bunch of hardware that they don’t need if they ever have to scale down or cancel their deployment.
