Value for Money

Comments: I am a consultant that works with utility contractors and construction companies. I have worked with many different type of companies with a range of different ERPs. This variety has put me in a unique position to comment on Jonas compared to others.

Jonas fits the construction business very nicely. With solid fundamentals of an Enterprise ERP (accounting modules) it rounds out the system with powerful modules for construction companies (project management, job costing, job views/reporting, document management, job tracking/profit/expenses, etc.) The beauty of this system is that all the modules are fully integrated just as you would expect.

I have been directly involved in implementing the document management system, Digio, and it saved my client thousands of dollars per month. Also, paying bills electronically (EFT) has reduced fraud along with all the postage and labor of sending out cheques.

Because Jonas has been around for many years is has best practices built into every process. The downside of its maturity is that some of the old reports are not as pretty as the new ones. Another negative, is the complexity of the report generator. It is very powerful which makes it harder to learn.

Probably the most important highlight of the Jonas organization is their support. After the sale you get more attention than before. Technical phone support is outstanding.

Very good product and excellent tech support

Comments: Jonas has been a great tool to help me and my co-workers manage their day to day work duties.
There are still aspects of our modules that we have to explore to make full use of the Jonas system. It is nice to know that we have a complete software package that each person in my organization can use which allows everybody ease of communication and access to information.

Comments: We have been using JONAS for our complete payroll, accounting, and job costing needs since 2006. We have grown considerably (number of companies and sales volume) since then, and it's comforting to know that JONAS has been growing along with us. They continue to add useful features and streamline processes.

The customer service is very helpful, timely, and professional.

I am proud to say we will continue to use JONAS for many years to come!

Comments: it's easy to use, can track a lot on information on the customer or the supplier. We use p o so it's easy to find were the part is order from which supplier and for which customer. There is many way you can find a customer example name, addresses or phone number. After you get use to it there is some short cut you can use. When you need help the service is there to help you.

Comments: We've using Jonas for about 5 years. Implementation of the system was relatively easy with the consultant. He was available to us whenever we needed him and the conversion from Aacpac was pretty smooth with all the files being converted to CSV files and imported.
Having a dedicated support person for the first six months was a great help. We called her constantly for small issues and always got a great response and solution.
The support over the years has been excellent with quick responses and fixes.
Not a lot to complain about with the program some small glitches with inventory but that is usually handled pretty quickly and solutions found.
Overall impression of this product is that it does exactly what we need it to do. If you have people who are at ease with technology you will have few issues.

Customer Support

Pros: Customer Support is OUTSTANDING! We are treated as friends and partners in business NOT as a Customer#!

Software does everything we need NOW and everything we need it to do as we grow in the future. If something is missing, Jonas wants to know, they are eager and willing to make any and all changes to the software to continue meeting their customers needs.

Cons: Interface is not as friendly as it should be! It is intense and robust software and to most people other than an IT person, it can be VERY intimidating. Needs a simple user friendly interface for normal people with the ability for the more savvy user to go deeper if needed.

Overall: New Interface and it would be PERFECT!

Sean, We are all over the User Interface issue. Jonas should have a new face for Version 12! Thank you for the review! Glad you are happy. See you at the User Group.
