ProContractor offers comprehensive, flexible features that enable contractors to begin with the most critical applications they want – whether only estimating or accounting or project management – and grow into the full breadth of offerings as their business needs them. The accounting application includes construction-specific payroll that captures all information required to produce payroll checks, tax and insurance reports, plus union and certified reports and general ledger, accounts payable, and accounts receivable.
Additional construction-specific functionality is offered in the application with equipment tracking, multicompany support, and item billing. The seamless integration with Viewpoint for Estimating allows contractors to convert bids into projects, including setup of cost and billing codes, project alternates from the estimate in order to create change orders later, easy lien notice setup, and more. By stacking project management on top of accounting and estimating, ProContractor is a complete solution that helps construction firms get a better handle on document control and bidding while keeping their financial data in sync with the business.
Contractors get easier access to this all-in-one package from off-site locations like the home, office, or the field, using any web-enabled device. And they also have easy access to all other applications such as Microsoft Office from a personalized Windows Desktop that looks and feels exactly like the one they’re used to seeing every day. Their desktop now goes where they go. In this way, contractors have a web-based solution to help manage their construction business when and where they need to in order to improve visibility and profitability and enjoy many time and cost-saving benefits.
The software is built to handle nearly any kind of construction firm that does not operate a service branch of their business. The system can support a varied number of trades from general contractor, heavy highway, concrete, utility contractors, and many more. Like many other offerings in the Viewpoint family, the ProContractor solution is built on the Microsoft .NET platform and works off of Microsoft’s SQL Server.
