Construction business software is a hugely important decision and asset for your company. Between estimating, billing, accounting, and payroll, there are numerous bookkeeping and data management priorities that need to be track as part of doing business in the construction industry. The competition is brutal out there. According to Small Business Trends, the construction industry has one of the highest fail rates of any sector of the economy. About half of all new construction companies fail within the first three years. Only about a third of construction companies make it to 5 years and beyond.
For those inside the industry, it’s not hard to understand why. The struggle to balance consistent, high-quality results and competitive estimates is difficult, especially when the other guy may be willing to do a sales job on a prospective customer and then cut corners during the actual project. And then there’s the sometimes unrealistic expectations of the customer to manage.
Construction Business Software from AMS
Unfortunately, we can’t remove all the challenges and obstacles that come with operating a business in the construction industry. What we can do is take a huge chunk of the hassle out of construction payroll and form filing support with a construction payroll software. What does this include? In practical, everyday terms, our software can set up employee files and payroll systems in which the software will handle the basics of your payroll needs. It can automatically calculate your payroll adjustments, process paychecks and direct deposit pay, track tax liability and deposit schedules, streamline quarterly filings, as well as end-of-year filing forms.
Construction and Small Business Software Capabilities
These everyday payroll features are also backed by powerful and versatile software capabilities. Our platform software creates a user-friendly, menu-driven interface. You can enter filing form information on a screen that resembles the actual form or via spreadsheet format. Payer accounts with secure PDF files and direct email communications make payroll reporting easier for business accountants. Our data management capabilities offer the kind of reliable performance and time-saving value that make our products a smart business expenditure.
We admit our software can’t do everything. You’ll need additional support for billing, estimating, project management, accounts payable and receivable, and often metrics software to track the performance of your construction teams.
Whether it’s free accounting software or low-cost software designed for construction companies, the compatibility and powerful import/export features of the AMS system makes it easy to integrate with other construction business software. What’s the alternative? Software providers that offer comprehensive solutions frequently have higher overall costs without any real efficiency gains. You’re bound to end up frustrated and behind on the rest of your obligations.
