What is the problem we needed to solve?
A general contractor that wins 1 out of 10 quality bids can be successful. The problem is building more quality bids in an increasingly competitive and cost-sensitive economy. The win to build process was time-consuming and error prone. Additionally, managing change orders from owners and to subcontractors was laborious making profit projections difficult. Accurate work in progress reporting, the lifeblood report of a contractor and scrutinized by the bonding company, was not timely.
Sage MAS 90 in the SpotlightUsing MAS 90 core modules with payroll and job cost provided the information system, workflow, and reporting to allow the owner, project managers, and finance personnel to process more bids with standardized and consistent cost structures. Adding Certified Payroll opened the door to new government markets.
