Integrating Job Simplicity with Simply Accounting was so easy and straightforward — it’s a true plug-and-play solution. Now we can generate job cost reports on the fly and finally feel like we’re in control of our projects and our profitability

HomeFront Software has announced the addition of Olson Construction to the growing list of contractors using Job Simplicity - home building software for small commercial and residential builders. Olson Construction, a general contractor based in Golden, BC, selected Job Simplicity for its full-featured job costing capabilities and plug-and-play integration with Sage Simply Accounting software.

Tammy McDonough, Business Manager at Olson Construction says that affordability, job costing functionality, and the ability to get up and running quickly made Job Simplicity an easy choice. “Most of the construction management applications we looked at required us to change our accounting software and start from scratch. But with Job Simplicity, we were able to add true job cost accounting without replacing the Sage Simply Accounting software we already use and like. Plus, Job Simplicity is really affordable and we love how it shares information with our accounting software in real-time.”

Such compatibility was just the start, says Tammy. “Integrating Job Simplicity with Simply Accounting was so easy and straightforward — it’s a true plug-and-play solution. We were up and running in just a couple of weeks.” She adds, “Now we can generate job cost reports on the fly and finally feel like we’re in control of our projects and our profitability.”

Daryl Shenner, CEO of HomeFront Software, says Olson Construction’s experience is the reason they developed contractor software for small builders. “General accounting software like Simply Accounting and QuickBooks doesn’t provide the level of detail related to job costing or construction management that users expect. But we didn’t want contractors to have to replace the financial reporting and accounting backbone if it wasn’t necessary. By adding Job Simplicity, small builders and contractors get a completely integrated, end-to-end construction management system at an affordable price. ”
