Estimating/Accounting Software for Union Projects3/8/18
We are a Union installation company. So we work in several Locals vs. a Shop that works in a singular. So it makes our accounting unique.
We built our estimating software in Excel. Works rather nicely. We've made several improvements to it over the years.
Accounting can't integrate due to the several Locals we install in. We're still on a manual input for accounting.
To those that work in several Locals.. What do you use? Have you found an Accounting software program that works with Estimating?
Sage 100 handles the payroll piece automatically. I am sure most software that can do certified payroll on a per job basis should be able to handle it.
What's the spread in cost between the different locals? Can you summarize it in your estimate or do you the breakout in the estimate?

Thank you! I'll look into Sage.
If you Build a Job in sage you can use it for estimating and get estimate vs. actual reports but we just used the accounting side and imported our estimates.
We switched to another software that had some other features we needed and the payroll module and job cost is not as robust as Sage was.
