User Reviews of JOBPOWER

It’s a credit to JOBPOWER that even contractors who aren’t trained in accounting can understand how to use the software.

Submitted on February 4th, 2020 by Carol Allen

JOBPOWER fits the needs of both of our construction companies - a mechanical contractor and an electrical contractor. It’s so easy to use that I haven’t even had to study the manual.

I have used JOBPOWER since 1995 and have absolutely loved it! This program thinks like I do! It is the most ‘user-friendly’ accounting software I have used. There are so many challenges in the daily life of a construction company office - it’s great that our computer software is not one of them!

Submitted on October 2nd, 2019 by Therese Styck

Being suddenly ‘tossed’ into the position of handling all of our accounting data, I was concerned because I had little knowledge of accounting software. JOBPOWER was so easy to follow and intuitive to use that I had no problem at all jumping right in and taking over where our previous bookkeeper left off. The support staff also made the transition as comfortable as possible for me and I have nothing but the highest praises for the software and support reps!
