A multi-module management system designed by Dedicated Software Solutions for construction companies.
Work In Progress is an integrated system that will assist in your home builders construction. The product is centered around nine separate applications, which give you total and complete visibility of every task, project, and dollar. The applications are:
Quickest will provide you with an estimate based on historical costs from past jobs. By using the enhanced square foot method of cost breakdown; this software can generate an estimate in minutes. This product generates an estimate by comparing costs for three completed jobs (similar to the estimated job) and projecting those costs into the future for a new job. After an estimate is produced, Quickest will create a budget for you, saving even more time.
Work In Progress has the ability to maintain a current balance of any bank account; by automatically processing data when a check is written or a deposit made. To write a check, you only need to select from an unpaid invoice in your vendors’ file. Checks are only written for the invoices you have selected. Furthermore, partial payment is possible at your discretion.
The Customer Billing and Payments View gives you the ability to create and track an invoice. To do this you simply select the job you want to bill for; then enter the items you want included on the invoice. Descriptions for items in an invoice can be as long or as short as you desire. You can print a complete billing, change order, and payment ledger history for a job to verify and track bills and payments. If you want to see which accounts are delinquent, just print an accounts receivables aging report. Work In Progress will then store a complete history of billing and payments, for each job in the system.
The Draws and Deposits View will greatly assist you in applying payments received for work to their proper lots (home building projects still in progress). This product will automate your accounts receivable tracking and eliminate the need for you to create paper invoices. All you must do to post a draw is input the lot number, general ledger account, a description of the deposit, and the deposit date. This application also allows you to deposit income into multiple bank accounts. Furthermore, you can print out a complete list of all lots in process; and the job cost report gives you detailed breakdowns with budget variances for all job cost categories. Finally, when a lot is closed, the system transfers all costs and incomes to your profit/loss statement.
Work In Progress’ Invoice View handles all of your accounts payable needs. The software will automatically apply vendor numbers for you; this allows each of your vendors’ invoices to be efficiently entered into the system. As a result of your involvement in home construction, you may have to apply your invoices to several homes or cost codes; this is done through a simple electronic interface featured in the Invoice View. Additionally, if you have budgeted out your cost codes, the budget amount will be displayed, as will the variance from the budgeted amount the instant you enter the lot number or cost code for an invoice. You can view any open invoice for any vendor; and any memo typed for an invoice will print on checks to vendors and on any relevant reports. The Work In Progress system will make the proper postings to your general ledger when an invoice is entered or paid; also any unpaid invoices that you delete or edit are adjusted in the general ledger. Unpaid invoices can be printed and totaled by each vendor, each lot, or due date (paid invoices can be subtotaled by each lot or each vendor only). This application also gives you the capability to print vendor telephone number lists, print vendor address labels, and file folder labels; hence giving you an advantage in organization and communication efficiencies. The use of standard computer forms available at any office supply store, will greatly reduce your 1099 processing time. Additionally, lien wavers can be generated and applied to vendors specified by you.
Work In Progress also features a largely automated payroll system. The Payroll View allows you to pay in either hourly or salaried employees; with the option of processing overtime pay. You are also given the option to charge wages to a lot’s cost accounting, enhancing the accuracy of your job cost reports. The system will also provide you with the correct payroll tax amount. Work In Progress gives each employee the ability to elect deductions with the following deductions being supported: up to 5 miscellaneous deductions for local taxes, insurance, 2 pre-tax deductions for cafeteria plans, and child support. At year end W-2’s can be easily printed on standard forms.
Quikest will provide you with an estimate based on historical costs from past jobs. By using the enhanced square foot method of cost breakdown; this software can generate an estimate in minutes. This product generates an estimate by comparing costs for three completed jobs (similar to the estimated job) and projecting those costs into the future for a new job. After an estimate is produced, Quickest will create a budget for you, saving even more time.
