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.

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!

Not Enough

You get what you pay for (not a compliment). I switched FROM Quickbooks because I needed the AIA, with basic accounting, with payroll. JP offers these with their program, but they missed the concept of rough draft and pencil copy. Very difficult to review before posting. Virtually no editing, all changes must be made via adjusting entries (yes, I know this is the proper way... Doesn't make it the easiest nor the most convenient. Not all General Contractors care about accounting rules). I have since switched to a different program, for which a paid a penny or two more, but completely worth it. MUCH easier to navigate, edit and review, etc. Being able to review and edit before posting leads to less adjusting entries which leads to a happier accountant performing the year-end review.

Pros

It has the capabilities of performing a variety of tasks, but it's not as easy to actually USE.

Cons

Where to begin... Some screens you can tab through, others require the 'enter' key, others require the use of a mouse. To adjust the parameters of a report, you have to completely close the report and start from scratch. There are two completely separate screens for creating an AIA billing, one for the cover sheet, and one for the continuation sheets. If you find an error on the cover sheet, you have to completely close out of what you're doing and start from scratch. This may include any AIA's you entered before finding the need to edit. The program does not understand pencil copies, so once you create the invoice, good luck editing it and/or trying to reprint it. I am a single user, and I found it a disadvantage to be unable to work in multiple screens at one time. Constantly having to close one screen just to review something in another, is very time consuming because each time you close and reopen a screen, you have to start from scratch. Also, the payroll portion of the program is separate from the basic accounting. Therefore, if you are preparing a tax return - your 941, for example - but you want to review your prior postings and payments, you have to completely close out of the payroll module, switch to the G/L module, and start from scratch. You can not easily switch from one to the other... Each time you have to close and restart... Close and restart.

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).
