Product Spotlight: Acumatica Construction Edition and ProEst

When you know your true costs — from subcontractors through materials and overhead — you can master the bidding process and win more profitable construction jobs. With Acumatica’s Construction Job Costing feature, you’ll get the detailed job information you need to help you determine problem areas in your current jobs and accurately estimate future projects.

Before cloud construction accounting software became available, the typical bidding process relied on guesstimating costs from labor to materials. With Acumatica Construction Edition, you have the toolset you need to secure new business with concrete, accurate costing that eliminates guesswork. This includes integration to ProEst—easy-to-use estimating software that helps you quickly create accurate, competitive bids. You can create estimates, perform digital takeoffs, store project drawings, and manage the bid day process.

Once the project is awarded, data is automatically sent to Acumatica Construction Edition. With Construction Job Costing, you can efficiently manage every project-related activity — including entering A/P invoices, billing customers, and charging time to jobs—so that your job cost and billing information is always up to date.

Texas Scenic Company, Inc., which designs, manufactures, and installs theatrical stage equipment, has found success using Acumatica Construction Edition. They were using a legacy construction accounting software before they were introduced to Acumatica.

“It’s a modern cloud solution that handles our manufacturing, service, distribution, and construction business in one cohesive integrated solution, allowing a seamless flow of data,” says Chief Financial Officer Ron Fairchild.

The company’s staff handles new construction and renovation project needs. They pride themselves on completing projects on time and on budget. With the project cost capabilities in Acumatica’s construction accounting software, they’re even better equipped to bid accurately and to meet customer expectations.
