Cons
"Its implementation process is kind of complicated. If the person implementing it doesn't know what he is doing, the system can have many issues. Sage X3 is just an accounting system. As compared to Oracle E-Business Suite, it does not cover a lot of functionality. It doesn't have the payroll, lease management, and HR modules. Oracle E-Business Suite is better than Sage X3."

"Lacking in some customizations.""It requires a lot of planning to implement the product correctly.""The common issues being raised right now by the end users are mostly related to the usability.""The cost of the solution is quite high. It needs to be adjusted.""The theory-side of the solution needs to be improved.""Every year, when a new version is released, it comes with a very thick booklet of 300 or 400 pages and it is a little difficult to comprehend.""The two things that need to be improved are price and customization.""Technical support has been declining. They aren't as responsive as they used to be."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"It is very cheap. There are no additional charges, but the problem is that you have to acquire an additional supporting system such as a budgeting system. You will have to implement the integration and maintain two systems. So, you need to pay for the license of that budgeting system and this one. You also need to pay the license for the payroll and integration. There are all these integrations that you have to pay for."
