From Builder to Businessman
UDA ConstructionOffice Transforms Third-Generation North Carolina Contractor

Tom Lasley"ConstructionOffice gives me the ability to use the estimate to generate a schedule, and then go from the schedule to print out a weekly task list that has the notes to indicate things like materials, resources, and so forth that are necessary for the job and email it to my project supervisor on Sunday night to let him take a look at it, then I'm able to take it to work on Monday morning. It's just inconceivable how fast and easy it makes the whole project management process."

"Using ConstructionOffice has allowed me to increase the volume of work I can take on by at least 100% - that's twice as much work as I could previously handle. But that's not even the best part. The best part of it is that I've not only increased my volume, productivity, and efficiency, but I've also increased my profitability." read more

From Texas to Florida to New York to Tennessee
VPN Connectivity with ConstructionOffice Gives Regional Company Control

"Our people are located in diverse geographic regions, so I knew that we needed a lot out of a project management system," said Richard Morgan, co-owner and Chief Financial Officer. "We needed a system that offered networking and remote connectivity options on top of its project management capabilities. We needed a system that could not only connect our estimates and schedules, but also be compatible with Microsoft Word, Excel, and Outlook, because that's what we were using. We also send quite a few documents by e-fax and email, our system needed to work with that as well."

"Every single house that we have under construction has a UDA Budget in it, and that UDA Budget is attached to a UDA schedule. Those have to be built before we start construction and approved by the project manager and the general manager of the company. Out of that, we produce a customized weekly production report, which is our estimate of cash forecasting on that house over a 16-18 week construction cycle." read more

Time is Money
Illinois Company Sees Tangible Benefits with ConstructionOffice

AHS HomeTime is money in the construction industry, and there's no better way to increase profits than to work more efficiently. Michael Mazer, president of Alternative Home Solutions and a 36 year veteran of the construction industry, found that by utilizing an integrated project management system, the people in his company could finish projects faster and use their time more productively.

"My superintendents get copies of all the estimates, contracts, specifications, and finish schedules. Everything that we give to the owner, they have, so if there are any questions so far as interpretation, we avoid any discrepancies with the owners. It's all right there in writing so the superintendents know exactly what we agreed to. And as far as the schedule is concerned, they can update the schedule right there on their laptops and then download it when they get back to the office."read more

Evolving Beyond Excel
Minnesota Builder Experiences Big Difference with ConstructionOffice

"I had devised some estimating sheets myself using excel - simple formulas that allowed me to enter size, square footage, or quantity. They would calculate out percentages and then give me my totals, but I couldn't build the level of detail into it like ConstructionOffice has." "I really liked that it was adjustable to meet my needs. The estimating software has serious depth of detail if I want it there, but I also have the option of working with lump sums. I'm able to take it to whatever level of detail I need." read more

North Carolina Builder Saves Time and Doubles Business

Because of the time savings that Dennis has experienced with ConstructionOffice, he has been able to take on significantly more projects as well. "Recently I had 8 houses under construction at once, and quite frankly, I could not have done that without ConstructionOffice. The most I could have handled, doing everything the way I used to is about half of what I can do now. ConstructionOffice enables me to handle twice the amount of work now - I've absolutely doubled my volume."read more

Twenty-Year Industry Veteran Hits Professional Stride with ConstructionOffice

"The scheduling also keeps me in check - especially the reminders. If there's a specialty item such as a garage door that takes 6-8 weeks to order, I set a reminder to tell me that it has to be ordered by this date. And it really keeps the projects moving so smoothly. I've done two large-scale projects with it this year, going into the third one now, and I can say that we've come extremely close to our expected finishing date because of this program."read more

California Contractor Brings Up Bottom Line

"I'm a General Contractor in California, and I've been using ConstructionOffice since 2002. The Estimating tools are great. At the end of the project I can see how much money I made, or the other way around. My estimates are a lot more accurate than they used to be, and I'm faster, too. The ConstructionOffice integration marries the estimate and the schedule together, so you can share information. It really saves me a lot of time. I can't do without ConstructionOffice." read more
