JobPower Construction Accounting Software


 

JOBPOWER is an integrated construction accounting, job costing and document management system. Over the years it has become one of the most reliable, complete and affordable construction-specific programs on the market. You can see a few customer testimonials on their website.

JOBPOWER includes accounting, detailed job costing, construction oriented billing, payroll by job, and many additional features designed for contractors.

JOBPOWER can be installed on a PC or server. If users have a Mac, the Cloud version is the answer. The Cloud version allows for access anywhere, anytime with an Internet connection and works with a PC, Mac, iPad, laptop, Android Tablet or smartphone. 

The dashboards give users a visual and numerical overview of jobs, payables, receivables and financial information. Contractors can track change orders, apply equipment costs to jobs and customize cost categories with Job Management. The billing application supports AIA Billing, retainage tracking, time and material invoicing, units billing and recurring billings. Payroll handles certified payroll, unions, and timesheet import from time keeping systems. Documents created in JOBPOWER are filed automatically in the document management system by job, customer, vendor and/or document type. CRM, quotes, inventory and accurate job cost reports for bonding requirements make JOBPOWER invaluable. Single entry job cost means that the job ledger and general ledger always stay in balance - no duplicate entries required.

JOBPOWER is designed for small to medium-sized businesses with up to $20 million revenue. The program serves a wide range of firms, including general contractors and subcontractors in all trades; commercial, industrial, residential, electrical, mechanical, plumbing, concrete, drywall, painting, and more. 

JOBPOWER is integrated with ProEst Estimating and VirtualBoss Scheduling.

We love the job costing aspect of this program. It allows us to keep detailed cost records for each project. It is also very easy user friendly.

Likes Least

We would like a little more flexibility to customize reports.

Recommendations

You can't beat Jobpower in price, functions, user friendliness or support. We are a commercial painting company and it does everything we need it to do in order to keep up with our General Contractors. Job Cost, Certified Payroll, AIA Billings, AIA Continuation Sheets, subcontractor information, just to name a few. It is like we are only paying for the features we really need from some of the really pricey softwares that are out there for construction.

We used this program for 7 yrs prior to my retirement. I loved the simplicity and ease of navigation of JOB POWER!
Very user friendly to set up for Job Cost and very user friendly to operate. Extremely courteous and knowledgeable Tech Support and the Updates for every new year were available promptly. I trained 3 of our office staff personally and they picked up the program and were off and running with it in 1 day! I can say that it saved time and made our accountant extremely happy with the results when we switched to JOB POWER. The forms this program produced were accurate and acceptable to the State of Texas Controllers office auditors. I was an Engineer and Construction Manager not an accountant and I can testify that JOBPOWER made my life a lot easier.

Nothing: I had no problems with JOBPOWER. If I had not sold out my company when I decided to retire I would still be using JOB POWER today!

Recommendations

1) Ease of Navigation
2) Competent Tech Support
3) Easy to read and understand operation instructions
4) Simplicity and elimination of redundant double entries.
5) Simple payroll portion of the program with prompt updates.
These are important to me and were important to my company staff as our prime objective was construction.

The software is very easy to learn. Integrated general ledger makes job costing reliable. We have used Job Power for about 15 years and during that time have reviewed other products that were presented to us and Job Power always came up on top. The system we used prior to Job Power left much to be desired. The on-line and telephone help is an outstanding resource that we have used many times. In the past I tried using Quick Books and Job Power is without a doubt much easier to learn.

Likes Least

We record our jobs on a percentage of completion and have a spread sheet that our insurer requires. Job Power does provide and excess/under billed report but not in the format we need.

Recommendations

Make sure all the applications work as you need them to for your business.

Our company can process our A/R and A/P through the same software, plus keep up with inventory.

Likes Least

Some things I can only do in the current month, so it is good to have two months open at a time, but switching screens a lot during the end of a month can be frustrating. There are several times a week that two employees are trying to get into say, job files, and only one person can be in certain screens at the same time.

Recommendations

Get the yearly unlimited support. You will need it at first at least, and it will be cheaper than paying each time you call/email or when they come out with a new update.

I like that the software is very feature-rich, but not as pricey as others. Everything you need for Job Costing, Budgeting and Payroll compliance is right there. The customer service is excellent and second to none. They have been great answering questions and helping with setup.

Likes Least

The only thing I have negative to say about the program is that once you close a payroll month, you cannot go back and print any reports, including any certified payrolls you might have missed.

Recommendations

Always, always get an online demo. What you think will be great may not be so much once you get into using it.

I really can't think of anything I don't like about the program. I am a General Contractor, and it serves my needs. Applied Computer is constantly open to any suggestions or needs that we ask for.

Recommendations

At least look at a demo! It really is a great software program. I can't imagine using any other program. It is so much more user-friendly than other programs I have worked in.

Job Power is extremely user-friendly! It provides everything I need from A/P to Payroll to complete Job Costing. And I cannot say enough about the support staff! They are fantastic! They patiently answer all the crazy questions I come up with!

If I had to pick one thing that we like the least, it would be the 3-digit sort code when entering A/R in the "add/revise A/R" module.

Recommendations

Definitely try the demo! Once you realize how easy-to-use this program is, you'll be hooked!

I like the Job Cost/Job Management section the best. It keeps our CPA happy, and I can usually spot if something has been posted to the wrong job pretty quickly. JOBPOWER Customer Service is awesome!!

Likes Least

Revenue and I are having a few issues. If I am entering a regular invoice and forget to click on "override" to enter the description I want to use on reports, I can go back and enter the correction but it will still show the incorrect info on reports. The same thing goes with entering AIAs. I would like the job name and draw #x to show on reports, etc. Even if I go back and edit it to show that info, it will always show Application #x on Billing Reports.

Recommendations

It helps a lot for job cost reporting. But I've only used QuickBooks (no job cost ability) and JOBPOWER.

There is not one thing I can say bad about the program.

Recommendations

This program keeps up with the most current tax factors and construction info. You only have to enter something once and it goes to the different accounts. There is no double posting or moving numbers between accounts. I run four companies from one software program. It is the only way I can stay a one-woman office.

JOBPOWER is the most user-friendly and affordable software for contractors on the market. It is supported by a closely held business that makes the support personal and practical since they understand small business issues.

I haven't found enough negatives about the software to comment about shortcomings, and I have had clients recommended the software for over 30 years.

One only has to compare the user friendly nature, the quality of the reporting, and the integrated modules, along with the pricing, to other software packages to know JOBPOWER is a great value and tool for a contractor.

The best thing for me is the support. We are a new company; everyone in our office is "in training," and the support is always friendly and knowledgeable. Once it is learned, the program is easy to use and makes job reports easily. All of our documents are saved on the cloud, which makes paper management a breeze. The project manager likes it because it is simple to do a job cost and cost to complete report for his weekly meeting. Our accountant is impressed with its detailed GL.

If you are a layman bookkeeper, the learning curve is gigantic. That being said, all the support you need is just a phone call away.

Recommendations

JOBPOWER is a product our company will continue to use as our basis for all accounting and payroll. Once it is learned, it exceeds expectations. We are very impressed with this product.

I have been using JobPower for over 10 years. The customer support staff is exceptionally knowledgeable of their product and very helpful. The program was fairly easy to install, with little, if any, help needed by the technical department. The ease of the program made the transition from One Write Plus simple. The ability to tweak the reports is an added feature that we like as electrical contractors. The willingness of their team listen to and implement "suggestions" in the upgrades is an added bonus.

I would recommended this program to others, and I have!
