Contractor's Office Construction Software


 

Contractor's Office was developed exclusively to handle the needs of contractors in a variety of industries. The software can satisfy the requirements of commercial and residential contractors across multiple trades. The breadth of trades that Contractor's Office can serve is impressive. A sampling of trades supported include paving, plumbing, sitework, HVAC, plumbing, electrical, concrete, general contractors, and real estate developers.

The software combines applications for estimating, bid management, project scheduling, project management, customer management, and accounting into a single system. Construction firms can purchase the applications for takeoff by itself but estimating, customer management, project tracking and bid management must be purchased as part of the suite. There are additional modules for accounting and job scheduling.

The software helps construction firms present their estimates in a more professional manner by generating detailed estimate documents whenever a bid is placed on a project. Once a bid is accepted, Contractor's Office helps firms keep the bid profitable by monitoring and comparing the project's actual cost to the budget set for the project. Once a job is complete and it comes time to bill a client, accounting allows for flexible invoicing provides functionality for clients to be billed all at once or on a payment schedule. AIA billing as available on a percent complete basis.

The software targets the smaller side of construction contracting firms, aiming at businesses with $5 million or less in annual revenue. The software can be purchased either for a flat rate or firms can pay a monthly fee. There is also flexibility to decide which operating system you want to install the software on Contractor's Office is compatible with Microsoft and Mac.

I am not very computer literate and I was reluctant to proceed with a computer-based estimating system. What a difference! It's cut my time spent on estimates to a fraction of the time it used to take and has made me more profitable by being so complete.

Customers have commented on how professional my estimates are, and has a result I have more net sales. I also have had great help on the few times I have needed it. Byron has walked me through on a couple of things I didn't understand.

I would say Priosoft is the most valuable tool I own.

I use Contractors Office 6.1 and have for 3 or 4 years now. The learning curve was difficult but I had good help from Byron.

I am pleased with the software but I do have some suggestions.

1) My customers find the work descriptions in the quotes to be confusing and disjointed, meaning that I have to spend more time explaining them or retyping all of the descriptions.

2) I would like to see totals for each item in the quote. Instead of a total at the bottom of each section. That way when I make changes the customer can see just how the change has affected the price. They can see the cost for each item in a section for instance that fancy garden door in the Window and Door section. I do like the fact that the markup is hidden in the quote, however.

3) I don't seem to be able to update now. The usual link is gone from the (About) area.

Contractor's Office 6.0 has helped me turn quotes into profit for the last few years. Each quote has become easier and easier to complete. I need to add the accounting module to my existing software. Sometimes an error message pops up and I'll have to close out and reopen the program, but for the most part it's great.

We run a home remodeling business with an 8 person crew. All the time we like to have the best materials to run our business, like software, computers etc. We have used Contractor's Office for 2 years. It's an easy to learn tool, and you can make professional look estimates quick. The only thing about this software is when you get updates, you get problems when you run the software, and different kinds of errors. Support is OK though.
