ISS gives you the knowledge you need to be profitable
Design job files your way. You can have as much or as little detail as you want.
Overhead and profit can be entered as fixed amounts or as percentages. Sales price can be specified as fixed or floating. Subtotals can be shown
wherever you want.
Play "what if" with your job budgets. Pick a
job that you have budgeted. Quickly see what happens to the sales price if you increase the
overhead by 5%, or see what your profit will be if you enter a fixed sales price of $195,000.
This can be an eye opener.
Perform historical estimating. In a hurry to do a quick estimate? Historical estimating will
automatically average costs by account from as many historical jobs as you want and project the
budget for a new job. You can add cost increase/inflation factors. Because you are using your
actual cost information, projected budgets are accurate. A click of the mouse will
automatically set up the new job for you.
End surprises from your subcontractors. Track quotes from subcontractors and payments against these quotes. Subcontractor management works with Accounts Payable. At invoice entry time, if the invoice being entered will cause the quote to be exceeded, ISS will notify you. You decide whether to enter the invoice or cancel the entry of the invoice.
Track change orders. The flexibility of the change order system allows you to have
different markups (overhead and profit amounts or percentages and labor burden) for each
change order. The ability to copy change orders keeps you from having to reinvent the wheel.
Produce AIA (American Institute of Architects) draw request information. This is
automatically included in ISS instead of being an extra add-on feature. A couple of clicks
will update the draw request and change orders and create an accounts receivable. This saves
Generate Contractor's Affidavits. These affidavits are required by many financial
institutions before they will release construction draws. Having this information tracked and
reported by ISS can reduce some of the headaches involved with using other people's money.
Automatically calculate and post general ledger entries for jobs on the percent-complete
method of accounting. Entries will automatically be calculated but can be changed by you,
allowing you to remain in control.
Know at all times exactly where you stand on all your jobs. The powerful reporting in job
management and the ability to view job management information at any time gives you the power
to control your bottom line. When you use the "View Jobs" feature, line items that are over
budget will have you seeing red (line items will be displayed in red).
Update job budgets from estimating with a few clicks of the mouse. Produce a budget in
estimating and then simply select the job whose budget you want to update and the budget file
to use and the budget for the selected job will automatically be updated from the information
produced in the estimating system. ISS also interfaces with leading CAD (computer aided design)
systems such as CADSOFT® and SOFTPLAN®. Job budgets can be updated with cost data produced by
these systems as simply as with cost data produced by the estimating system. With ISS
integration is easy.
