Comments: 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!

It is not as easy as it should be.

Comments: double entry, poor customer support, no one ever home, leave a message, then they call back when I'm in the field, ( I do have to build stuff to make a living )simple tasks made super complex, clumsy labeling of menus ( why would I go to ' print customer change orders " to define a change order? No headings of continuation sheets, have to enter a separate "budget" to do any cost accounting, so double entry there, and the billing and budgets don't relate to each other. owned this for six months and have yet to get one invoice prepared.

Pros: NOTHING

Cons: EVERYTHING

Comments: This company has great customer support and the program is super easy to use. It makes sense from an accounting Standpoint.

Pros: Everything

Cons: I can't access information that is over a certain age.(if I had printed reports, I would have information from day 1). Our fault.(the time I can access is like 5 years.)

Recommendations to other buyers: Get it. It's worth it.

Pros: Chat support & account integration

Cons: Customizing reports

Overall: Every week I am reminded how fortunate I was to select Job Power for my accounting software. When I purchased JP Clouds,. This, my first journey into online accounting, there was a learning curve but the JP online support is excellent. I always say ¿Best Support in the Business¿, not that I would know all the other accounting software support, but I can¿t imagine any support being any better. JP support far out shines the other support that I have experienced, (other types of software, computer, appliances etc¿).
The Live Chat support, Elisa, Penny, Sue, Dee & Michael, they call you back, they email you, they send you documents & links, they¿ll study your documents to help you figure out where the error is, best of all the get back to you when they said they would and follow up. I can¿t say enough good things to convey how helpful they really are.
I manage a construction company and an US Department of Labor Registered apprenticeship program, which is a LLC who single member, is a community college. Although we have separate accounts my books are rolled into the college¿s yearly third part financial audit. Thanks to JP, I have my required reports completed within a few minutes of receiving the requesting email, never a problem fulfilling the auditors¿ request.
The accountants and controllers at the college think I am a much better accountant and administrator than I actually am because JP makes me look good.
I would be happy to discuss the details of my experience with JP with any interested persons.

Recommendations to other buyers: Top to bottom the whole company is very responsive to my needs.

Comments: I have been using JobPower for over a year now and I Love it!!! I would never ever use QuickBooks or any other construction accounting system except for JobPower!! I have worked in the construction business for a long time and this is the Best program for the reports, payroll and job costing!!! I know everything I could ever know about each of our projects. Their customer support is out of this world!! When I call I always get help right away and if they are busy I always get a return call back in less than 10-15 minutes and they all speak ENGLISH!

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.

Overall: 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!

Recommendations to other buyers: JobPower is a great program for any size construction company, whether a GC or a subcontractor. It provides job costing in as much detail as required, or as little as needed. Since it's so easy to learn, you can be up and running quickly.

Pros: The ease of learning the tabs and ability to use without a lot of training.

Cons: The inability of more than one user accessing certain areas at the same time. the time frame of closing out months and only have 2 months open. 3 or 4 would be nice. Sorting capabilities in reports need to have more select codes. Need ability to for all payroll reports including states of which you operate like Arkansas.

Overall: going on 3+ yrs of working with Jobpower. They have one of the best support teams that will work with you on any problem in a very timely manner. The system is user friendly and navigation is easy to follow in most cases.

Recommendations to other buyers: I would recommend this software to any small, medium company. Being limited on accessibility of multi users could make it difficult with a larger company.

Pros: The accounting features are really good. Payroll is wonderful.

Cons: I would like more financial statement formats. I don't like the time and billing invoicing as you can't add additional lines like GC fees after you have printed it. You can only add to the detailed version, not the summary cost-code version of invoicing which is a bit of a pain.

Overall: Job Power is a very easy to learn program with great features. I get immediate support on any questions. I could have used a little more training in the beginning but I have to factor in the learning curve I had as I came from a different industry. I was able to help a fellow builder set-up Job Power a year after our implementation.

Recommendations to other buyers: This software is a value. It handles payroll and accounting functions very well. It does not schedule or help with selections. Use the unlimited support when setting up as it does not include training.

Pros: It is intricate
The reports overlap and verify each other
The support is almost instant, and you always talk to a person, never a machine. Support will always answer the question specifically, and follow up.
Accounting Features including WIP reports are essential to our business
The software filters for Unions, Audits, Insurance, Divisions of work, etc.

Cons: For our Company there are some Union specs that are a bit harder to achieve.
I am still learning it... I feel it does more than I have knowledge of
Not having enough character availability for naming
Not having enough Banks... limited

Overall: JP has helped us as we grow in the Construction Industry. Our data and reports need to be detailed and filtered and JP offers that.

Recommendations to other buyers: thank you

Pros: Its fairly easy to use.

Cons: Don't really have any cons.

Overall: In the 3 years I have used Job Power I have been satisfied. I have never used this type of accounting program before. Overall it is a great program. There are somethings that I think could be streamed lined but it may be just the way we use Job Power. But if I ever get in a bind about something I'm not sure how to fix the customer service dept has always been very helpful. I will have to say that Elisa Carr has been my FAVORITE cust. srv. rep!! She has always been very prompt and knows just how to explain what I need to do to fix my issue!! She is very well versed in the program and knows what she is doing!!

Recommendations to other buyers: Not really any advice about the program but I do suggest that JOB POWER hire more cust. srvc. reps. Sometimes there is only one person to take all the calls and I can be sitting here waiting for a few mins before someone can come to my call. Other than that everything is good!

Pros: After reviewing many software options, I chose JOBPOWER because of their simplicity of their system. We are a medium company and didn't need the bells and whistles of a robust software. To top it off, the folks at JOBPOWER are extremely helpful and make sure that all of my questions are answered.

Cons: The JOBPOWER keys tend to be a hassle when getting access. Instead of just having 4 seats, we have 4 keys. If all of our keys are being used, not only does one of us have to get off of JOBPOWER to let the other one use it, but we also have to unplug our JOBPOWER USB Key and hand it off to that person.

Recommendations to other buyers: JOBPOWER is a great option for those wanting a construction software with the simplicity of QuickBooks.

Pros: the greatest advantage for me was the unlimited customer support. I am not a bookkeeper and it had been 20 years since an accounting class. With a basic understanding of accounting JOBPOWER made my life much simpler and reduced greatly my time expenditure for invoicing. The reports are great and variance analysis is just a few clicks away for all my jobs. Fantastic Company and Product!!!

Cons: I am a big fan, but the only thing I can think of is that there are no videos for fixes to common questions that result from format/style questions as related to how the JOBPOWER system is set up. Some companies offer this as a way around good customer service.

Recommendations to other buyers: Just know that others charge an hourly rate for support and it is built into JOBPOWER's cost structure.

Pros: Construction industry appropriate and ease of use. Menu driven and well thought out....geared to the construction industry. Each aspect of business is incorporated in this software - accounts payable, accounts receivable, payroll, W2 / 1099 capabilities, tax filings, job cost codes and reporting, estimating (at this time we do not use this portion), budget vs actual cost of projects, over / under billing and as well as many other options that you can customize to your business.

Cons: Paying for each piece of the software instead of getting all of the pieces when purchased.

Recommendations to other buyers: Take into consideration all the aspects of your job cost accounting - this product includes all of them and more.

Pros: We love the job costing aspect of this program. It allows us to keep detailed cost records for each project. It is also very easy user friendly.

Cons: We would like a little more flexibility to customize reports.

Recommendations to other buyers: You can't beat Jobpower in price, functions, user friendliness or support. We are a commercial painting company and it does everything we need it to do in order to keep up with our General Contractors. Job Cost, Certified Payroll, AIA Billings, AIA Continuation Sheets, subcontractor information, just to name a few. It is like we are only paying for the features we really need from some of the really pricey softwares that are out there for construction.

Pros: We used this program for 7 yrs prior to my retirement. I loved the simplicity and ease of navigation of JOB POWER! Very user friendly to set up for Job Cost and very user friendly to operate. Extremely courteous and knowledgeable Tech Support and the Updates for every new year were available promptly. I trained 3 of our office staff personally and they picked up the program and were off and running with it in 1 day! I can say that it saved time and made our accountant extremely happy with the results when we switched to JOB POWER. The forms this program produced were accurate and acceptable to the State of Texas Controllers office auditors. I was an Engineer and Construction Manager not an accountant and I can testify that JOBPOWER made my life a lot easier.

Cons: Nothing: I had no problems with JOBPOWER. If I had not sold out my company when I decided to retire I would still be using JOB POWER today!

Recommendations to other buyers: 1) Ease of Navigation 2) Competent Tech Support 3) Easy to read and understand operation instructions 4) Simplicity and elimination of redundant double entries. 5) Simple payroll portion of the program with prompt updates. These are important to me and were important to my company staff as our prime objective was construction.

Job Power has been a great addition to our company.

Pros: The software is very easy to learn. Integrated general ledger makes job costing reliable. We have used Job Power for about 15 years and during that time have reviewed other products that were presented to us and Job Power always came up on top. The system we used prior to Job Power left much to be desired. The on-line and telephone help is an outstanding resource that we have used many times. In the past I tried using Quick Books and Job Power is without a doubt much easier to learn.

Cons: We record our jobs on a percentage of completion and have a spread sheet that our insurer requires. Job Power does provide and excess/under billed report but not in the format we need.

Recommendations to other buyers: Make sure all the applications work as you need them to for your business.

Pros: Our company can process our A/R and A/P through the same software, plus keep up with inventory.

Cons: Some things I can only do in the current month, so it is good to have two months open at a time, but switching screens a lot during the end of a month can be frustrating. There are several times a week that two employees are trying to get into say, job files, and only one person can be in certain screens at the same time.

Recommendations to other buyers: Get the yearly unlimited support. You will need it at first at least, and it will be cheaper than paying each time you call/email or when they come out with a new update.

Cons: The only thing I have negative to say about the program is that once you close a payroll month, you cannot go back and print any reports, including any certified payrolls you might have missed.

Recommendations to other buyers: Always, always get an online demo. What you think will be great may not be so much once you get into using it.

Pros: I like the Job Cost/Job Management section the best. It keeps our CPA happy, and I can usually spot if something has been posted to the wrong job pretty quickly. JOBPOWER Customer Service is awesome!!

Cons: Revenue and I are having a few issues. If I am entering a regular invoice and forget to click on "override" to enter the description I want to use on reports, I can go back and enter the correction but it will still show the incorrect info on reports. The same thing goes with entering AIAs. I would like the job name and draw #x to show on reports, etc. Even if I go back and edit it to show that info, it will always show Application #x on Billing Reports.

Recommendations to other buyers: It helps a lot for job cost reporting. But I've only used QuickBooks (no job cost ability) and JOBPOWER.

Pros: You can run multiple companies and keep everything in one program. It is all inclusive.

Cons: There is not one thing I can say bad about the program.

Recommendations to other buyers: This program keeps up with the most current tax factors and construction info. You only have to enter something once and it goes to the different accounts. There is no double posting or moving numbers between accounts. I run four companies from one software program. It is the only way I can stay a one-woman office.

Pros: JOBPOWER is the most user-friendly and affordable software for contractors on the market. It is supported by a closely held business that makes the support personal and practical since they understand small business issues.

Cons: I haven't found enough negatives about the software to comment about shortcomings, and I have had clients recommended the software for over 30 years.

Recommendations to other buyers: One only has to compare the user friendly nature, the quality of the reporting, and the integrated modules, along with the pricing, to other software packages to know JOBPOWER is a great value and tool for a contractor.

Pros: The best thing for me is the support. We are a new company; everyone in our office is "in training," and the support is always friendly and knowledgeable. Once it is learned, the program is easy to use and makes job reports easily. All of our documents are saved on the cloud, which makes paper management a breeze. The project manager likes it because it is simple to do a job cost and cost to complete report for his weekly meeting. Our accountant is impressed with its detailed GL.

Cons: If you are a layman bookkeeper, the learning curve is gigantic. That being said, all the support you need is just a phone call away.

Recommendations to other buyers: JOBPOWER is a product our company will continue to use as our basis for all accounting and payroll. Once it is learned, it exceeds expectations. We are very impressed with this product.

Comments: I have been using JobPower for over 10 years. The customer support staff is exceptionally knowledgeable of their product and very helpful. The program was fairly easy to install, with little, if any, help needed by the technical department. The ease of the program made the transition from One Write Plus simple. The ability to tweak the reports is an added feature that we like as electrical contractors. The willingness of their team listen to and implement "suggestions" in the upgrades is an added bonus. I would recommended this program to others, and I have!
