Customer Relationship Management

  • Lead, prospect, and customer tracking
  • Contacts organizer
  • Tracking and managing opportunities and activities
  • Communications and campaigns manager, including email template storage, delivery scheduling, and sending

Job Costing

Job costing is crucial for anyone who manages projects, especially contractors. Having a system that can manage both the project management and the accounting can save both time and money. Backroom Management makes job costing as simple as determining costs, creating templates and managing jobs. Most importantly, it’s a dedicated job costing system, as opposed to a system grafted on top of inventory. It includes:

  • Job budget and costs
  • Job costs details
  • Job cost exceptions (to keep you on budget!)
  • Notes on steps and/or progress
  • Scheduling: assigning start dates, end dates, actual completion dates, and responsibilities
  • Progress billing
  • Job profitability estimates through just one click
  • AIA 702 – industry standard report for progressive billing
  • And more!


Backroom Management has robust and extensive reporting capabilities. These reports present the information managers need to make strategic decisions that lead to profitability. The most critical report is the 7 Key Numbers, of course. But beyond that, Backroom Management reporting extends to everything a manager, accountant, or potential investor would want to see. Our report templates include:

  • Your 7 Key Numbers
  • Break-even analysis
  • Numerous variations on balance sheet and income statement, including budget vs. actual, departmental, and comparative
  • Account analysis, business evaluation, general ledger, statement of cash flows, trial balance
  • Customer reports, receivables reports, sales reports, invoice reports
  • Vendor reports, payable reports, open invoice and purchase order reports
  • Sales by customer, sales by source, collection by sales person
  • Inventory reports including economic order quantity, item ledger, and item profitability
  • Source documents and journals
  • And much more!

Time Billing and Project Management

Anyone who bills by the hour, tracks employee time and productivity, or manages projects by time will benefit from this completely integrated time billing system. Invoicing can be reduced to a single screen to enter all of your time entries by client, project and task. Project management can be done easily through creating templates and tracking jobs by time. The features include:

  • Hours by customer summary
  • Time by customer
  • Scheduling (see job costing below)
  • Employee utilization
  • Project budget & time
  • Project task exceptions (to keep you on budget!)
  • And more!
