Spectrum has job costing and is easy to use. The in-software filing system is unmatched.
Mistakes can be difficult to fix, however Spectrum support is wonderful to work with.
Don't be overwhelmed by the installation and building of your software. It's a true GAAP software. QuickBooks and other software applications allow you to make changes easily. Spectrum does require a process and that's a good thing.
Our biggest business problem we are solving with Spectrum is the ability to job cost and analyze costs associated with jobs. Being able to drill down into labor, equipment, material, subcontractors, etc. has been educational. We are able to see a seamless workflow from module to module/department to department. It has given us great data for operational decision making - from purchasing new vehicles/selling vehicles to working in different locations to moving forward with new work. One of the greatest benefits has been having all of the departments using one software, which leaves less room for error and less transactions to enter/process in multiple systems. Another great benefit is ease of use. We have 450 users of the software - from employees just checking their pay/hour information in the Employee Kiosk to employees who are using the software daily for billing, accounts payable, accounts receivable, payroll, etc. Spectrum is setup as a filing system, which was one of the deciding factors in the purchase of the software. The scanned in documents has been one of the greatest assets so far. Being able to have information readily at your fingertips is important. It allows us to provide information, make decisions, and see what we need more timely. All around, Spectrum is a software packed with great tools for any person in any department. I highly recommend this software to any company who is looking for more comprehensive data, increased information at its fingertips, and a stronger workflow between departments.
