    Pros

    The software has a lot to offer and many great features. It is very flexible and you can reall drill down cost and overhead with all of the reporting.

    Cons

    The trainer that we were assigned did not understand accounting for construction and new even less about the software. When we finally complained about the trainer they switch trainers and did not credit us for any training and left us with a company file that was set up incorrectly. They said they could help fix it but it would be another charge for the extra support. Now three months later they do not return our emails.
    The software is very complicated without training you will really struggle.

    We use Jonas at our gym to organize our members and contact information. It is very quick and effective. Relatively easy to use once you learn the basics.

    Cons

    There are multiple routes to accomplish the same tasks, which can be confusing at times. Sometimes we have difficulty making changes to member accounts.

    We have experienced increased productivity on the administrative side of our business and higher accuracy in all areas.

    Pros

    eMobile and Dispatch Scheduler have helped us to respond to customer service requests in a more organized and timely manner. The integration part of this software has increased our productivity enormously. No more paper work orders! And has made the accounting side of our business seamless from service tech to customer invoice. Payroll accuracy has increased and timeliness of getting invoices out to customers has increased because of the techs ability to use devices to complete work orders and we are not waiting for them to be turned into the office.

    Cons

    I find the Job Costing module very cumbersome. The job invoicing is a little arduous. When doing multiple customers for monthly draws, it is very time consuming to have to go in and out of each job to invoice. Also, if you do not have a bill to set up in accounts receivable you have to exit the job master, then go to AR to set up the bill to and back into the job master to finish your set up.

    Pros

    Jonas creates an almost sterile accounting environment where every move is tracked and audited, increasing visibility of individual tasks. Processes are broken down into very small steps which can be helpful if you're looking for an audit trail. The mobile portion (emobile) of Jonas Enterprise is a valuable addition for field workers and dispatchers alike.

    Cons

    Visually the interface leaves much to be desired. Scale and size are unchangeable and there are many screens and modules that are so miniscule as to render them unreadable. Mobile-wise the visuals get better but are not quite user friendly for service individuals in the middle of a job.
    Jonas creates such a lengthy process for every single task that it can seem like you are taking 7 steps that could have been accomplished in one. While the audit function of Jonas is a highlight for the developers, as an ordinary user I can say it is something I never use but is incorporated into everything I do whether I like it or not. Boasted as a "true accounting software" I can't help but imagine it was an accountant's evil fantasy to produce such a laborious process to accomplish small daily tasks.
    When Jonas is forced to go big, it fails spectacularly. Financial reporting is and general overview is so fuzzy and diluted it's almost useless. Because Jonas creates so much data on the micro scale, large reports and financial analysis provides very little useful information. Drill down does not exist in the true sense of the word.

    The features look great on paper. It would be awesome if it did everything that it's supposed to instead of being functional in theory.

    Cons

    The implementation team did not do what they should and we were told that multiple features didn't exist despite the fact that they were shown in the demo or promised by the sales team. Workarounds for everything.

    When we first came on board with Jonas in 2007 we had some issues being an excavation contractor in Pennsylvania with the state Prevailing wages, taxes, etc. but Jonas worked through those issues with us and now I highly recommend them!! I have been on many different software packages and Jonas is my favorite!!

    Pros

    Have always loved the support and ease of logging a support call. Staff is very knowledgeable!! Updates are easy to load. Jonas listens to clients needs for any changes that benefit the client.

    Cons

    I have nothing bad to say about Jonas. I have never had any thing to complain about with them. Everything is great!

    Cons

    Old interface. 15 character limit on inventory items (and having to use alternate part numbers) needs to be fixed. Even the alternate part numbers are too small for many of our parts.
    Purchase order numbers, and cheque numbers are too short.
    New modules seem like add-ons to the base program, rather than a complete integrated solution.
    Inability to access some fields for custom reports. Some built in reports are poorly implemented.

    Pros

    The one thing I do like is that you can customize reports. This is probably the only good thing about this software.

    Cons

    Everything else about this software is bad. The customer service us horrible, the accounting system has glitches all the time, Information is hard to find in all of the menus they list. These menus are ones that were customized for other companies but show up on your menus. There are some items within the menus that cannot be accessed because they are old yet they do not remove them. Trying to pay out retention is a nightmare. Do not make any mistakes or have to change anything in parables because anything you do will print on the suppliers remittance slip. Lets not even go into customer service what a joke this company is horrific.

    Once the call is received by a technician dispatch cannot make any updates to the appointment. Also inventory is very difficult to move from warehouse to truck and account for.

    Overall, the system once you know how to do the functions is fairly easy to use. If you don't know the system, the information is difficult to find, however, the customer support team is very helpful and timely to help.

    Pros

    There are many things you can do to track costs in this program. It is fairly easy to use once you know how to use it.

    Cons

    You can't leave very long descriptions, the help documents aren't very helpful to find how to do a specific function, you can't adjust things easily (you might need to do a couple things to fix one thing)

    Hi Tracey, Thanks for taking the time to review our software. We really appreciate it. On the plus side, we did recently update the website so that the forms would automatically populate with your information if you've filled it out once prior. We know that can be a little frustrating. If you have any recent examples where the form didn't populate, feel free to send me the urls, and we can have a look at getting those updated. Thanks again, Oren Falkovitz Marketing Manager Jonas Construction Software

    Ease of workstation install. A few clicks and you're up and running. Makes recurring user setups very easy.

    Support is ticket based and thus can be slower than desired if you're on site trying to resolve an issue in a timely manner.
