Foundation Software

We have been able to use Foundation Software in almost every construction accounting situation. You can tell it was designed for the intricacies of construction accounting. While we have not explored it lately, the project management module was not ideal. Foundation Software knows accounting and is strong in that field. I think they would be best suited to stay within the accounting realm and focus their resources on that arena.

Perfect for a SME, less so for larger companies with a lot of staff. A reliable application, with few outages and easy to learn how to use for a variety of staff in different positions. Mobile phone app has been bit of a disappointment. Management reporting functionality could be improved.

Foundation Software makes setup and data entry clean and straightforward. Even without prompts, a user would be able to navigate around the basic functions of the software. With a little training and the help manual they provide, a user can learn the system very easily. For those wanting to get deeper into things like queries and dashboards, they offer trainings and conferences that are helpful.

I have used Foundation Software support many times over the last ten years. I have never had an issue they were unable or unwilling to address. Even oddities are handled quickly and resolved efficiently. I have also had customization done and was very happy with the customer support they offered in developing a query and report that would met our unique need.

Foundation Software

Personally,
I did not have a hand in deciding the software, but for our company is has not
led to increased productivity or made things easier. It has been more difficult
for payroll to be inputted correctly and the payroll reports for certified
payroll often come out incorrect and we need to manually figure out how to correct
the issues and get them in correctly

We received an offer for a discounted license for initial use and pretty much got so used to Kashflow, that we have continued with it. There are some frustrations with it, in particular the ability to search and find information. The reporting functionality is also a bit of a disappointment. However, easy for day to day use for the staff and just about sufficient for monthly planning. Some of the integrations like Payroll are not bad.

  • Reliable system
  • Minimizes time spent training staff in use
