About Pivot SE


Explorer Pivot SE. A complete, integrated package that brings together the essential software tools required to manage a complex construction or engineering project. Explorer Pivot se combines ease of use with powerful features that simplify every stage of project management. Explorer Pivot se streamlines critical procedures, and offers a wide variety of reports to meet client and management needs. Central to its design is integration. The key functions - general ledger, accounts payable and receivable (including invoicing and quotations), payroll, job cost, purchase order and inventory management - are seamlessly linked. A single entry - a change order, for example - automatically updates all related financial records.


With the click of a button, you can copy a quotation to an invoice, or copy an invoice to a credit note. Creating an invoice automatically updates the accounts receivable. A wide variety of reports are available - including bank bonding, productivity, forecast-to-complete, committed costs and gross margin reports. You can organize job budgets by class, activity and cost type. Easily manage multiple state/province and union payrolls. Copy a batch to any accounting period, or reverse it if there has been an error. And throughout your project, you’re assured of a clear and complete audit trail.


Explorer Pivot se has the look and feel of an MS Office application - office staff will have little or no difficulty getting up to speed. It will fit right into your suite of Windows software and uses MSDE Microsoft SQL desktop engine.
