Pros: This job costing software was a massive improvement on what we were using before. It allows time sheets to be input directly by staff which gives us up to date information on costings. We have better transparency of our figures and the vast number of reports available enables us to analyse our figures very easily and accurately. It works with Sage perfectly.

Cons: You have to remember that it is an Access database and it will only do what you generate it to do. Previously we used an accounting package so it took some getting use to.

Overall: For us, the ease of invoicing and reporting has made our job costing procedures work more efficiently and transparently.

Pros: Saves a lot of time

no need for lots of paper for time sheets or jobs

easy to find job cards and lots of information regarding that specific job

easy to use, all our staff are using it.

Brilliant for recording hours and over time

Cons: nothing really, we have found it all very beneficial to the business.

Overall: There is still probably features we don't use as yet, but overall it has saved a lot of time in collating hours staff spend on each job, the system gathers this for you, so it saves time when wages are being done.

we have also moved away from paper job cards and use Amber - JCS which is brilliant and very easy to use.

Jobs can be easily searched for and all the information regarding that job found easily on the system.

The Support we receive is fantastic.
