About A-Systems JobView

A-Systems JobView is PC-based, job cost accounting software. It is a true Windows program, written as 32-bit architecture software. It is based on the powerful and easy to use functions in the mature DOS program A-Systems developed in 1978.

A-Systems’ software is used by construction companies coast to coast, in all lines of construction, at all levels of accounting and computer expertise.

The philosophy behind the software is to create a program that gives an entry level bookkeeper the ability to handle all of the internal accounting and create quality reports that even a CPA would be proud to present to the Board of Directors. Each function (G/L, A/P, A/R, Payroll, etc. is fully integrated into the Job Costing process. After a Job is set up with a Budget, the daily processes of running payroll and accounts payable, create the kind of job costing information necessary to succeed in construction.

New customers are trained in a number of ways, but the favorite is one-one-one tutorial by a trained accountant. The software has over 40-sessions of multimedia training included with the software. Some use the multimedia training as their only training. Most use the multimedia training as a refresher or to bring new people up to speed on the software.

As an optional part of a new sale, A-Systems provides a data conversion service, entering lists of Employees, Vendors, Subcontractors, Customers, Cost Codes, Chart of Accounts, and formatting Financial Statements. This service expedites the implementation of the new software and considerably lessens the burden and time involved in changing software.
