What we think of it

Sage X3 is deeply configurable which directly means that Sage X3 is able to provide a tight fit to the needs of the business. Another major plus point for Sage X3 is that the user experience while interacting with the system is positive as the user interface is breezy and smooth. We have found that manufacturing-centric customers are particularly more leaning towards recommending Sage X3 to other businesses, unsurprisingly as Sage X3 does have manufacturing at the heart of it.

We should also account for the features that Sage X3 comes with out of the box. This proves to be especially advantageous for businesses as it tends to be more complete solution, reducing the need for third party integrations.

Over all, we find Sage X3 to be a reliable and robust solution for businesses that are looking for more than a basic accounting suite.

We rate Sage X3 a solid 4.5/5
