Still in the training phase

We are very excited to go live with Jonas and see what it can do for our company!

Pros

I'm still in the training phase, but so far I have been incredibly impressed with the capabilities of the system. The amount of automation available is very encouraging for me as a member of a small business where everyone is wearing a lot of hats. Any functions we can push off onto automation is wonderful! The flow of information through each module is also impressive. It keeps everything every organized and buttoned up by project. This will be great when audits roll around. I also love the alerts to warn you of items needing attention.

Cons

I do wish that general information was shared instead of being confined to one company. I'm working at a company who has many companies, and I would have loved to share vendors and accounts. Instead I will have to add any new vendor and accounts to each "company" we have when we get a new vendor or need another GL account.
While customer support is responsive, you have to email them instead of being able to pick up the phone and talk through a question/issue real time.

We are moving to Jonas Premier from an accounting software that not built for land development and/or home builders. So far, the product is fairly straightforward and easy to use. I have to applaud the ease of use to the great training program Jonas has,

Great job guys! Keep it up.

Pros

Customer Service or Support team is amazing and always very helpful. It has a great project management system that works very with the accounting and billings.

Cons

I didn't like that I have to generate each vendor code. It would be helpful if we can have 1 trainer on site before our live date.

Awesome Implementation Team

The support and implementation teams are great to work with.

Pros

We are in the implementation process currently. The training webinars guide you through step by step. They break the topics down to manageable "bite size" sessions. I am very grateful that we don't get overloaded with information each session. The other extremely helpful thing is the test company that we can do homework assignments in. This allows us to have hands on experience prior to our go live date. I like to save my questions for the one on one sessions with our team. For me it is easier to receive an answer over the phone rather than by email.

Cons

At this point, I don't have any cons with the system. However like I mentioned we are only doing implementation right now.

Jonas Premier review

Pros

The accounting and project management in one system is great. Job Dashboard reports are also very good

A Complete Project and Financial Management Application

We are moving to Jonas Premier from another similar "all in one" solution, and from what we have experienced so far, Premier is a much more robust and easier to use system. I have to credit the ease of use to the great training program Jonas has, and also all of the support we have received along the way to ensure Premier worked for us. With our last application, we felt that we had to bend to the system and we felt forced to change our operations. However, with Premier, we were showed how to make Premier work for us and mold to the way we were already operating. We are a rapidly growing company, so it was important to us that we had a system that was robust and could grow with us. We feel Jonas Premier is the solution for our company.

Pros

The ease of use and its robustness. It handles project management and financial management extremely well.

Cons

It would be great if we could get an Opportunity Management CRM integrated. This is the only thing missing to make Premier a complete solution.

Pros

Customer Service is amazing and always very helpful. They always respond in a timely manner and are willing to help out in any way.

Software can be glitchy. At times, there may be nothing wrong with the entries, but the software will not accept the entry.

Jonas Premier consistently exceeds my expectations.

I've used several Job Cost Accounting software packages, from SAGE 100, SAGE 300, and ProContractor. Jonas Premier is by far my preferred package. I'm telling you, their support team and development team is amazing!

Pros

This product is easy to use and there is not a steep learning curve. The development team is AMAZING! They are generally interested in what features could be improved or introduced to make your workflow easier. The fact that the program is 100% Cloud Based makes things so much easier for us. Also, it is very easy to modify reports and forms as much as you want.. You don't have to use some awkward reporting engine, you can use Word and Excel to modify reports and get data in/out of the system with ease.

Cons

I can't think of much - maybe that their office is in Canada and not across the hall or next door???

Great customer support from our rep

the program has many different capabilities we just have to learn them a we go, on site customer support has been our best experience.

Pros

it's capabilities and reports and the fact that we can customize many fields to what we we need. Also the fact the time sheet entry can be entered by each individual and the approval processes has simplified things for us.

Cons

Training modules are good but we much prefer to have our rep on site, better leaning experience. We have 2 companies to work on multiple people in different roles and to have our rep here to explain and help each department has been a great experience.

Great continued support! :)

Pros

Great project Management Software. It is easy to use and really easy to navigate when setting up Contracts.

Cons

Initial training/kickoff was fast. We felt that we were rushed on original implementation. All workers were so helpful. I wish training was a little slower.

Very Intutive Software

Pros

Easy to navigate and very intuitive to find what you are looking for and get the most from the information in the software.
Training and setup process is very well run, and trainers are very approachable with follow up questions.

Cons

Role Security takes a bit of fiddling to get it setup to match what we wanted are people to have access to, but the functionality is there to achieve this.

Huge upgrade over quickbooks

Tremendous upgrade over quickbooks.

Pros

Job Budget control screen and interactive reports on job costs in real time. Implementation team was phenomenal at helping to deal with the challenges of leaving an inferior software.

Cons

The migration from quickbooks was very challenging and time consuming. But that is much more an indictment of quickbooks than it is of Jonas.

The initial sales team and the onboarding team at Jonas Premier are professional and attentive. We are pleased with our purchase.

Pros

Jonas Premier is built on a strong accounting foundation. We feel confident in its ability to be the full cycle accounting tool we need daily to run our business. The project management integration creates efficiencies for both our project managers and controller. The integration between the two systems also gives our ownership the visibility we desire on a project by project basis.

Cons

The training webinars are not personalized to our business. The training sessions are group webinars, with 1 on 1 follow up sessions. The training would certainly be expedited with 1 on 1 training for each client.

AWESOME!!!

We love it!

Pros

The software meets all our needs. We run 13 companies each with different needs. This is a construction software, but we do other companies involving investments, property management, and it meets all our needs and more. One of our favorite features is the document manager. It is super easy to grab documents and attach that document to any transaction. It frees up our computer space and organizes it much better than we could have by ourselves. This software really is for everyone that wants to take the time to learn. It is a tedious process to get started, but well worth it and will save you a lot of time in the long run.

Cons

My only con would be that the training videos are a little long. I think the videos could be a quick overview of the item that is being trained on, then we are required to go and try and figure it out ourselves. The great thing with Jonas is that you can mess up in your test company and nothing carries over once you go live. So mess up as much as you want, it will help you learn. If the videos had a little revamp and shortened with more interaction, there would be not a single con to this software.

Good for Companies in the Construction/Development Space

Jonas Premier should be given a careful look by anyone shopping for construction accounting software. After looking at all of the major players in this space, we chose Jonas an think that for a company of our size it is the best.

Pros

Jonas has great service and is invested in walking you through the training and implementation process. I feel that when you sign up with them you will not fall through the cracks. The MS Office add ins make moving data in and out of the system easy and fast.

Cons

The integrations and API interface with other systems is still early stage, and the functions on this side are quite limited. Payroll may be more complex than necessary depending upon your needs. We chose to just use 3rd party payroll and get the information on the GL through a journal entry. Single sign on would be very nice, as this system has financial information, and I believe that all cloud based line of business systems should be putting security first.
