Abosolutely LOVED JobPower! (only switched for a lesser feature we needed)

Absolutely love it. It was perfect for us when we had less in sales per year, and it was perfect for us when we grew up to more in sales/year. I couldn't see a point where it WOULDN'T be perfect, no matter how high your sales.

Pros

It is so intuitive; very easy to use and looks good. In our office, we had users aged 17 through 77 and everyone could easily navigate the system. It has GREAT features for Construction Companies. I loved their PO system for material purchases. Their Time Entry app was simple to use. The reports were great. The WIP calculated nicely and printed plain & easy, which is important when dealing with so many different functions/numbers/aspects. The customer service is THE BEST you could receive anywhere. Always available during hours, always helpful with anything needed. They send out newsletters for updates that are laid out VERY SIMPLY, leaving no room for error. They also have a document control software that lets you keep/track/search your documents, per job. VERY helpful. I loved the way you can do W2's all electronically, too!! The job costing system is very easy and it's hard to make a mistake - it keeps things well-balanced.

Cons

After many years, we had to switch from JobPower because our highest project manager needed access in the field to do things like Field Reports and Unit/Footage Tracking, so we switched STRICTLY for this reason (but the cost to do so was outrageous with the new company... I would never have switched if we didn't HAVE TO have this other feature). This just is the only "con" I can put because it is really the reason we switched, but I'm still not sure it was worth it!

Allows Multiple users... but doesn't

In general, I like JobPower. I don't have a lot of accounting experience, so the simplicity of the GL account set ups and the fact that it's difficult to accidentally post something incorrectly was a plus to me. The user manuals and checklists make it easy to make sure you aren't forgetting to add anything before closing the month, etc.

Pros

Ease of set-up; it is almost foolproof and limits mistakes someone without accounting knowledge could easily make.
Simple to find information on customers, jobs, etc.
Comprehensive reporting ability (can produce a report for almost everything we need)
Very affordable compared to other accounting softwares
Industry specific
Checks to make sure your accounts are in balance and backs up every day.

Cons

It allows multiple users, but multiple users cannot be doing the same thing at the same time (for example, adding new jobs, paying bills, recording receivables), so it works best for a very small company that doesn't need multiple people in the same job role.
Accounting wise, does not post items to the general ledger in a way that makes sense. For example, payroll checks will post to the check register, but net payroll won't post to the GL at the same time. So your general ledger and check register will show different balances. Also, often with reconciling the bank accounts, all cleared transactions will match the bank statement, but the difference to balance to zero will be WAY off, so you have to enter adjusting entries in the reconciliation screen, which really doesn't make much sense.

Job Power makes my job easier

I manage a DOL Registered Apprentice program and AZ General Contracting LLC for a Jr. College. This means we have a yearly third party audit by a major accounting firm. I have used JOBPOWER Cloud for 6 years, when the auditors request documents and reports, with JOBPOWER, I have my audit reports completed and sent to them with in the hour. The auditors and the college think I’m a much better accountant than I actually am. JOBPOWER makes my life easier. The support is the best in the business. Not just the accounting software business, better than any support for any product or service I have ever experienced. if I leave after hours questions, they call you back or in a chat, they solve your issue with speed and professionalism. What do I like best about this product? Ease of use, total integration of the accounting data, the reports and of course the support. I’m the whole accounting and administration team for this multi-million dollar business and thanks to JOBPOWER, I have plenty of time to do the rest of my job, getting people trained and projects completed. I highly recommend JOBPOWER and would be happy to talk to anyone about my experience with the program.

Pros

What do I like best about JOBPOWER ? Ease of use, total integration of the accounting data, the reports and the online support.

Cons

What do I like lease about JOBPOWER. That's a toughie. If I had to say one thing, it would be the customized reports. It's probably because I have not played with customized reports much. (the built in reports cover everything, except user nuance specific).

Every week I am reminded how fortunate I was to select Job Power for my accounting software. When I purchased JP Clouds,. This, my first journey into online accounting, there was a learning curve but the JP online support is excellent. I always say 'Best Support in the Business', not that I would know all the other accounting software support, but I can't imagine any support being any better. JP support far out shines the other support that I have experienced, (other types of software, computer, appliances etc'). The Live Chat support, Elisa, Penny, Sue, Dee & Michael, they call you back, they email you, they send you documents & links, they'll study your documents to help you figure out where the error is, best of all the get back to you when they said they would and follow up. I can't say enough good things to convey how helpful they really are. I manage a construction company and an US Department of Labor Registered apprenticeship program, which is a LLC who single member, is a community college. Although we have separate accounts my books are rolled into the college's yearly third part financial audit. Thanks to JP, I have my required reports completed within a few minutes of receiving the requesting email, never a problem fulfilling the auditors' request. The accountants and controllers at the college think I am a much better accountant and administrator than I actually am because JP makes me look good. I would be happy to discuss the details of my experience with JP with any interested persons.

Pros

Chat support & account integration

Cons

JOB POWER Usage

Pros

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.

Cons

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!

Job Power vs. Colby

Job Power is a very easy to learn program with great features. I get immediate support on any questions. I could have used a little more training in the beginning but I have to factor in the learning curve I had as I came from a different industry. I was able to help a fellow builder set-up Job Power a year after our implementation.

Pros

The accounting features are really good. Payroll is wonderful.

Cons

I would like more financial statement formats. I don't like the time and billing invoicing as you can't add additional lines like GC fees after you have printed it. You can only add to the detailed version, not the summary cost-code version of invoicing which is a bit of a pain.

Job Power Review

In the 3 years I have used Job Power I have been satisfied. I have never used this type of accounting program before. Overall it is a great program. There are somethings that I think could be streamed lined but it may be just the way we use Job Power. But if I ever get in a bind about something I'm not sure how to fix the customer service dept has always been very helpful. I will have to say that Elisa Carr has been my FAVORITE cust. srv. rep!! She has always been very prompt and knows just how to explain what I need to do to fix my issue!! She is very well versed in the program and knows what she is doing!!

Pros

Its fairly easy to use.

Cons

Don't really have any cons.

JP understands Construction

JP has helped us as we grow in the Construction Industry. Our data and reports need to be detailed and filtered and JP offers that.

Pros

It is intricate
The reports overlap and verify each other
The support is almost instant, and you always talk to a person, never a machine. Support will always answer the question specifically, and follow up.
Accounting Features including WIP reports are essential to our business
The software filters for Unions, Audits, Insurance, Divisions of work, etc.

Cons

For our Company there are some Union specs that are a bit harder to achieve.
I am still learning it... I feel it does more than I have knowledge of
Not having enough character availability for naming
Not having enough Banks... limited

Jobpower Software for accounting

going on 3+ yrs of working with Jobpower. They have one of the best support teams that will work with you on any problem in a very timely manner. The system is user friendly and navigation is easy to follow in most cases.

Pros

The ease of learning the tabs and ability to use without a lot of training.

Cons

The inability of more than one user accessing certain areas at the same time. the time frame of closing out months and only have 2 months open. 3 or 4 would be nice. Sorting capabilities in reports need to have more select codes. Need ability to for all payroll reports including states of which you operate like Arkansas.

Great form and function, Fantastic Support!

We've used JobPower since 1995. The program has grown with the industry, and still serves our purposes today. The support is second-to-none! Anytime I've had an issue, whether it be a question about function or an update, or just a mental-gap on my part, the support team at JP has been there!

Pros

This software is very user-friendly! It's easy to learn, use and adapt to any job cost accounting that we need.

Cons

In the Revenue program, it would be good to have a longer customer sort code, which would speed up our data entry for customer invoicing.

JobPower is GREAT!!

Everything that the program does is AWESOME. You do not have to have multiply programs to do all the things needed. And you can access it anywhere!!!!

Pros

The support leave from the team is great. You call with ANY question, even the stupid ones, and you will get an answer.

Cons

Nothing really and truthfully. I do not have an accounting background so some things are hard for me to understand but overall I LOVE the program and everything that it does

Job Power has been a great addition to our company.

Pros

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.

Cons

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.

Jobpower is power

Pros

Construction industry appropriate and ease of use. Menu driven and well thought out....geared to the construction industry. Each aspect of business is incorporated in this software - accounts payable, accounts receivable, payroll, W2 / 1099 capabilities, tax filings, job cost codes and reporting, estimating (at this time we do not use this portion), budget vs actual cost of projects, over / under billing and as well as many other options that you can customize to your business.

Cons

Paying for each piece of the software instead of getting all of the pieces when purchased.

We love, love, love Jobpower!

I would recommend this system to any contractor!

Pros

For an electrical contractor, it provides everything we need. It give us the capability to track job costs, employee hours, etc. It is very user friendly and we have no complaints about calling support. The support team is phenomenal!

Cons

There is absolutely no cons regarding this system. Our old system was not user friendly, you could not track anything. The support team on our old system was sarcastic and talked down to us. Jobpower's support team has NEVER done that. Wonderful to work with.

JobPower Mixed Review

Pros

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

Cons

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.

Jobpower s

I struggle with day to day accounting but once I got JOBPOWER it made things a lot easier to do accounting. The software has made accounting no so bad.

Pros

The software is very user friendly and easy to understand the functions of the program. The program is great for Construction companies the need to have details accounting.

Cons

There is nothing I can say that is bad about the software after I got the hang of the program.
