We work with you upfront to determine the right solution and a proven path forward. And when you’re live on your new solution, we’re still there to help you realize the return on your investment. We keep you connected to our team and the right resources to help you get the most from your solution.

Job identification • Job Management • Job Quotes

It all begins with an opportunity. Microsoft Dynamics 365 tracks your projects (and potential projects) from the day they are first identified through the quoting process.

Budget Estimating • Contract Management • Scheduling • Work Orders

Once a job is won, the real work begins. From estimating to managing contracts, scheduling your team and responsibilities on each job, everything can be tracked in the solution.

Purchasing • Material Consumption • Equipment/Inventory Management • Billing • Retainage • Creation & Management of Change Orders • Review Committed Costs vs. Actual Costs

There are a lot of moving parts on a project. Keeping track of all the details and being able to view them all in one place is key. Whether it’s purchasing, equipment or change orders, our business applications provide you with what you need to know for each job.

Project Visibility Reports – expected delivery dates, payment info for subcontractors, work orders & change orders, hourly labor rate • Cash Management 

The devil is in the details. And there are thousands in a construction project! Our reporting functions allow you visibility into the things you care about most, leading to more profitable decision-making. Your back office accounting team has the financial tools and information they need at their fingertips to manage what you’re owed, and track against those commitments and what has already been paid.
