Construction Partner is a construction accounting and job costing system with a 20-year track record in the industry. It combines accounting, estimating, and job costing in a single package. It's a good fit for contractors that are out-growing their current system and need a construction-specific accounting package.
Construction Partner is used by thousands of construction professionals across the country. It is designed for small- and medium-sized contractors with less than 50 employees or 50 users, and that generate less than $25 million in annual revenue. It can be used by nearly any type of residential, commerical or industrial contractor from earthwork to electrical to plumbing. It also provides the reporting capabilities to be used on public works projects.
Construction Partner is a full-featured system that has both generic accounting capabilities (e.g. accounts receivable, accounts payable, general ledger, and payroll), and construction-specific capabilities. For example, it has modules for job costing, certified payroll, equipment management, and labor compliance.

If you are a contractor in need of a full package of accounting and job costing, I highly recommend using this software! You won't find better software for the price!
Job costing reporting is phenomenal. I can monitor my job profitability and implement controls when necessary. This has a direct impact on the bottom line of my business. The program capabilities are well beyond those of Quickbooks (which is the program I used before) Support and general maintenance is inexpensive and they have implemented changes to the software based on my needs. They truly listen to the needs of their users. I read a review that there is not an option to reprint invoices but there is an option in reporting for that. My accountant loves the reporting options and I easily get through my financial statement review/audit and any payroll related audits. Their support also understands accounting, not just software. That has been very helpful!
I honestly have no complaints! If I had to find something it would be the general use functions. I can't use my mouse as much as I can in other computer programs.

The Software is basically an 'updated' version of DOS - there are a lot of things I think are ridiculous - like for instance - you cannot reprint an invoice. No seriously, if you lost/mis-place/ruined/whatever your invoice - you cannot go back and print another copy. You literally - have to void your invoice and re-invoice. If that isn't the Dumbest thing I've ever experienced, I don't know what is. Also, their so-called "Help" - is ridiculous... it's nearly impossible to find Any Help that you might need with their on-line help (F1 button) or even the Book - they force you to contact them (and charge you per hour with a 15 Minute Minimum charge - in order to figure out how to do something. AND THEN - the support you get is Sub-Standard - like they don't actually listen to what your asking for - and just throw some random crap at you - so of course, then you have to go back and ask again (meanwhile....like a taxi.....your charges just keep increasing and increasing....and you're just sitting at a red light....in traffic...).
I can easily upload my Certified Payroll into the DIR website - that's honestly the best thing about the program.
Their Technical Support is the ABSOLUTE WORST.... They are NOT Courteous - the DO NOT respond in a timely manner... and I find it rather Ironic that the ONLY contact number there is - is the support line - so you literally can't even call and let anyone know about the problem. I would NOT Recommend this product for this exactly reason - your software/company is only as good as the Service you Give.

The payroll module does a good job of handling multi-state payroll and certified payrolls
Can not have more than one window open at a time; very little drilldown capability; limited export capability to Excel. Job cost does not allow me to keep the original budget for a project. Whenever I get a change order and update the budget, the original is overridden.
If you are in the market for construction management software, go with a different product than Construction Partner.
