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

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

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.
