Files can be scanned into the system or uploaded on the document, project or catalog level, and they all end up in the same catalog.

Project Accounting

The Spitfire Project Management System offers comprehensive recording, tracking and analysis tools for your budgets, budget revisions, forecasts, job-cost accounting, subcontractor payments, and schedule-of-value billing–which all work together to give you current financial “snapshots” of your projects at all times. Spitfire can also be integrated with several accounting packages, such as Acumatica Cloud ERP and Microsoft Dynamics SL, for total communication between the financial and non-financial aspects of your projects.
