About the Procore + Sage 300 CRE® Connector

Overview

Procore is the only comprehensive cloud-based construction project management platform with an out-of-the-box integration with Sage 300 CRE®.

Connect your accounting and project management within Procore and provide field teams untethered access to financial data. Eliminate double-entry and give project managers one-click access to accurate job costing information on the construction site. With a Sage 300 CRE® integration you can have confidence in your financial data to make the best in-the-field decisions while giving accounting peace of mind as they retain full control over data pushed into accounting.

With the Procore + Sage 300 CRE® integration, you can:

  • Save time and labor by streamlining the approval process of time sensitive tasks such as commitments and change orders.
  • Reduce human error by eliminating the need for manual, double-entry when transferring data from Procore to Sage 300 CRE®.
  • More efficient communication between Accounting and Project Management teams.

Unsupported Features

The following features are not currently supported:

  • Non-sectioned cost codes (for example, '1234567' where the first part of the cost code does not denote a division). Similarly, you must also have a standard cost code list. See What are 'Standard Cost Types' in the Admin Tool's 'Cost Types' page?
  • Cost code structures using both a dot (.) and dash (-) delimiter scheme. (for example, 01-20.05).
  • Non-use of categories. Categories must be enabled and a standard category list must be used.
  • Integrate an active Procore project. This means you cannot integrate a project that was created prior to your company's Procore account being set up to work with Sage 300 CRE®).
  • Integrated owner invoices and related payments.
  • Import commitments from Sage 300 CRE® to a Procore project.

Common Questions

  • How does Procore connect to Sage 300 CRE®?

    When Procore's ERP Integrations tool is configured to work with Sage 300 CRE®, your company's Procore Administrator will work with your Procore point of contact to install the hh2 synchronization client on your Sage 300 CRE® server. The synchronization client is a lightweight, Windows desktop application that establishes a secure network connection between the hh2 Cloud Service (www.hh2.com), which keeps the data in Sage 300 CRE® and Procore in sync. 

    Typically, the hh2 synchronization client requires no special network firewall permissions, since the client only uses standard outbound TCP Port 80, and sometimes Port 443 connections, which are commonly used for standard web access. In addition, no inbound connections are required. Standard web technologies like Web Sockets is used to maintain a persistent connection.

  • What is required of the IT Team?
    The only requirement is to download and install the hh2 synchronization client on the system running your Sage 300 CRE® application (for example, Sage 300 CRE® Server). Once the initial configuration has been completed, the hh2 synchronization client runs in the background as a web service.
  • How is data safely transferred between Procore, hh2, and Sage 300 CRE®?
    The hhCloud Service is a third-party, professional-grade Data Center that is maintained and monitored 24/7. An hh2 synchronization client is installed on your Sage 300 CRE® system and it uses the HTTPS protocol to keep in constant contact with your Sage 300 CRE® data stored in the hh2 data center. The hh2 synchronization client also keeps your Procore data 'synced' with the hh2 Data Center and  system. To be synced with Sage 300 CRE®, the compatible data in Procore must first be sent to the ERP Integrations tool for acceptance by an accounting approver. After acceptance, your Procore data is exported to hh2 and then synced with Sage 300 CRE®.
  • Who can authorize what? 
    Within Procore, any exports to Sage 300 CRE® must be approved by your company's designated accounting approver(s). Any changes to the hh2 synchronization client typically involves the customer's IT department or company.
