Frequently Asked Questions

How does construction accounting software differ from regular accounting software?

Generic accounting systems like QuickBooks Online™ and Xero™ are great products, but aren’t designed exclusively for construction and require integrations to address things like retainage, percent-complete billing, and job costing, among other things. Construction accounting software is built to solve for these exact things.

Why should construction businesses consider switching to cloud-based accounting solutions?

When you have to use VPNs to log in from the job site, it makes it much more difficult for project stakeholders on your team to keep an accurate and constant pulse on budgets and expenses for each job. Cloud-based software makes your financials securely accessible from anywhere.

What are the primary features to look for when choosing a construction accounting software?

Construction accounting software will have all the standard accounting functionality like general ledgers, chart of accounts, accounts payable and receivables, but will include a job cost ledger and other construction specific functionality like time tracking, inventory management, project CRM, retainage billing and construction accounting methods out of the box. If you’re subcontractor, with a large field service team, it’ll be important to have a service management module.

How does CrewCost’s accounting functionality support job costing for your construction business?

CrewCost’s job costing functionality is built on our construction accounting system. So not only do you eliminate all that extra data entry and the need to deal with poor integrations, you ensure your job costing process is as informed as it could possibly be. Plus, with time tracking integrated, your labor costs get automatically applied to your job budgets so you can track your profitability in real-time.
