Construction requires a special set of challenges for a piece of accounting software. Using a pre-packaged, off-the-shelf system does not allow for rigors and specialties that construction accounting software requires. In particular, ComputerEase’s Job Center lets you oversee and manage such things as estimated vs. actual costs, percent complete, cash flow, over/under billing, and profitability.
Flexible Billing Options
Billing is not a one-size-fits all procedure. Billing varies based on the unique conditions of each job. Some project may require AIA (ie: Progress Billing). Other projects might require a time-and-materials approach, or a per-unit system. ComputerEase’s was built specifically for the needs of contractors.
There’s a lot more to a general ledger than just debits and credits. ComputerEase gathers all the financial information you need and presents it to you in an easy-to-use system: profit and loss statements, balance sheets, budgeting—everything you’d expect—but also user-generated custom reports and much more.
Work-in-Progress (WIP) Reporting is essential to completing jobs on-time and within-budget. Cost reports aren’t given to you a week after the fact, or even a day after: You can run custom work-in-progress reports that give you up-to-the-minute information. You can rest assured that WIP reporting will give you data and accurate costs in real time.
The Receivables Center is for managing every function of accounts receivable from one place. It includes valuable reports, and a list of past accounts. On the accounts payable side, there is invoice routing, invoice reconciliation, a management tool for purchase orders, and red-flag alerts which warn you when an invoice doesn’t match a purchase order
