Any integrated agency (more than just a single-discipline agency) that's looking for a one-stop shop to manage all aspects of running the business would do well to consider Advantage as the single-source tool to do it all. Single-discipline agencies could probably find a less robust tool that's equally as effective for tracking and reporting.

Jonas Software
Jonas is well suited for the construction industry and for trades that work in construction. The functionality and features are set up to streamline the processes that take place daily, weekly, and monthly. You are also able to manage the big picture and track your company's information for multiple years, making it a scalable software. Our administration and project managers can streamline work from the field to the office through Jonas and we feel that is one of the biggest benefits to Jonas

  • Job Dashboard gives you a great summary of that job at a glance. I can even pull direct reports based on the fact that there are drill-downs.
  • I can go right to the receipt with the GL report drill-down capabilities.
  • Workflows make the product accessible from anywhere for approval when I have people on the road.
  • Dragging and dropping reports to in AP will then go to documents under the job it is attached to.

Cons
HomeTech Information Systems
  • Advantage is hugely cumbersome. There are hundreds of functions I will never use, and that I'm not sure anyone else in the organization uses.
  • The user interface could be better. Every time there's an update, there's a small but definitive learning curve.

  • We would love to see the interface continued to be improved visually and made more customizable.
  • We would like a reporting feature for the Sub Pay App automatic email delivery. This will help us keep track of links that are not getting to our subcontractors.

We have also used BidClips. I find that Advantage gave us more flexibility with custom estimates & report tracking.

We came away from Sage 100. We looked at Computerease and Foundation among a few others. These two were looked at most seriously.

Return on Investment
HomeTech Information Systems
  • Advantage has everything to do with our company's ability to run an effective back office.
  • When you have a company that does a wide variety of concurrent projects, you need a great tool to manage it all. Advantage does that for us.
  • As I am unfamiliar with the pricing model (I'm not a member of the team that negotiates this particular product), I can't provide any true ROI from an overall business perspective.

  • Jonas has positively impacted our Accounts Payable and Receivable department by making tracking and processing organized and streamlined. Previously we were having to track invoices and payments through emails and various formats. We are now able to connect each AP or AR invoice to the job and subcontractor, keep track of the billing due dates, and have all the paperwork generated from Jonas.
