"Extremely powerful construction software but that power has some disadvantages..."

What do you like best?

Extremely customizable, super great support, consultants who really know the industry, many opportunities for learning more about the software, powerful.

What do you dislike?

Due to the database structure some tasks can seem extremely repetitious and time consuming, has a definite learning curve because there is so much to it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Watch the youtube tutorials, don't rush your migration, don't be afraid to take advantage of their support and attend the user conferences. User conferences are incredible. Plan your migration and how you are going to integrate Foundation into your office culture. You need the data coming in from the field and from project managers to make it successful, it's not just an accounting software. It's definitely worth it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a construction company we rely on Foundation to provide us with job cost data on a high level. We are able to track our jobs better and increase profitability and have a software that is truly built for the construction industry.

"Once you learn the ropes you will never go back."

What do you like best?

Everything is at your fingertips as long as you know how to look for it. All your numbers, figures, jobs, vendors, everything. Once you understand the workings of the program, it is all fairly simple: Enter information and fill in the blanks then hit enter. You want to know how much we spent on masonry on a job? Dumpsters? Easy. Want to know which invoice came first? Whether an invoice has been paid already? All at the touch of your keyboard. Reports can show you a wide range of variables: money spent, money left, money to be collected, money already collected, where the money was spent and on what.

What do you dislike?

If you are new to using the program and don't have a kind mentor or some REALLY good notes you will never get anywhere. Kind of complicated to learn, but very simple once you've got it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be sure to have someone who actually knows and works with the program teach it to you upon installation. Also, the people over there at Foundation Help are really awesome and will help you with anything you may need.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I must keep hundreds of vendors and jobs straight. All the invoices, payments, and company info comes through my desk. Foundation is the only thing standing between me and utter chaos. My boss needs a report? Easy as a few keystrokes and clicks on my mouse. Never would be so on top of the info on my own.

What Construction Accounting solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Accounting Software Review "

What do you like best?

Software is user friendly and produces clean reports. There is some user flexibility in definable fields and the ability to create custom reports. The query feature is great but you need a very strong excel users to be able to manage and use it.

What do you dislike?

The document routing for AP has a lot of room for improvement. It is clunky and leaves very little room for error. Revising invoices is cumbersome. The routing rules need more flexibility. Longer field description lengths would be helpful. Character limitations make things difficult.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Foundation for all of our accounting.
