Is this system compatible with QuickBooks Pro or Peachtree?
Work In Progress replaces these other systems. It provides you all the construction management information you need to profitably run your business along with a complete set of books. The system automatically generates a Profit and Loss Statement and Balance Sheet and other Financial Statements from day-to-day activities like invoice entry and check writing.
Does Work In Progress have estimating?
There is a simple estimating system included free with Work In Progress called QuickEst, it is based on an enhanced 'square foot' method of estimating combined with historical job cost data from completed homes. For a complete assembly estimating system that includes scheduling we created a separate product called Taskmaster. Taskmaster allows you to generate a detailed estimate that automatically creates a work in progress budget purchase orders. Taskmaster is integrated into Work In Progress' menus and views and is part of the Work In Progress Demo.
Do you offer scheduling software?
Taskmaster includes scheduling functions that are part of the estimate. This high level of integration saves you time and money because you don't need two pieces of software.
I'm not sure I can create a chart of accounts for my general ledger.
Work In Progress comes with a sample chart of accounts. This list of accounts has been distilled from our years of working with builders and is suitable for most companies. You can add to it or change it to suit your purposes.
Will you help me setup my company and get me going?
The system comes with a tutorial CD to help you get started. Beyond that we offer a company setup installation package which includes chart of account entry and posting of beginning balances for jobs and the general ledger.
