Ventus, by Vertical Market Software, incorporates over three generations of construction industry knowledge into the software. The software serves a wide range of companies working in the construction market - HVAC and mechanical contractors, to residential remodeling and heavy highway construction. Although many construction trade companies currently use Ventus, we think the product is ideal for service contractors that operate a field service organization.
Ventus software offers modules for job cost, estimating, service management, part sales, and accounting. Because Ventus is written and supported by a single source (Vertical Market Software) it is typically purchased as an integrated suite. The accounting solution contains general accounting features like accounts receivable and purchase orders as well as industry-specific functionality like time & material billing, AIA/progress billing and equipment tracking.
The broad functionality of Ventus means it is capable of serving many different trades in the construction market. Ventus will support service contractors working in HVAC, mechanical, and electrical, in addition to residential,heavy highway, and general contractors to name a few. We find that the software is ideal for medium and large construction firms that operate at revenues ranging from at least $1 million all the way up to $500 million.
The company takes pride in the Microsoft .NET/SQL architecture of the Ventus solution. Vertical Market Software also likes to extend a helping hand to customers at their Annual User Conference where they offer training and support.
