Overall Satisfaction with Foundation Software

Foundation Software is our accounting software. We use it for all accounts receivable, accounts payable, and GL management. We also do our payroll through their software. It is our single source for all financial information and controls. Our executive and accounting teams work daily in this software while our project management teams use it for cost control and reporting.
  • User friendly
  • Clean reporting
  • Simple entries
  • Not truly cloud based
  • Remote access is tedious
  • "Customization" is limited
  • Increased efficiency on data entry
  • Increased accountability with document routing
  • Increased access to reporting
Previously we used Construction Manager, which was an outdated software. We have explored multiple other accounting options but have always come back to Foundation Software. It is ideal for our size company. Much of the larger accounting software like Sage and Timberline are too robust and not aimed at mid-size contractors.

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.
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.
