We have been using Construction Manager with Sage since 2007 and we are pleased with the ease of use. The software links seamlessly with Sage. The Job activity can be easily accessed by our Contracts team, and there appears to be no limit to how many can access at one time. The support team are ever helpful, and will log onto our computers to rectify.
Construction Manager really makes tracking invoices, receipts, and purchase orders a very simple process. It’s made it easy for me to enter purchase orders and invoices ready for our accountant to access all the information they need to complete our VAT returns, etc.
Easy to manage, adaptable and accurate – it has worked well for us. Everyone I’ve dealt with such as sales, onboarding and support have made the process smooth and easy. Hats off to the JNC team – they’re attentive, very knowledgeable and don’t mind going the extra mile.
It makes paperwork so much easier, not having to spend hours of a Saturday morning pulling all costs into a spreadsheet, I can put the lads labour invoices on when they come in on my phone and take photos of any material I buy.
Best spent £15 a month, which I can claim back at the end of the year anyway! I send quotes out sat in the van after I have been to look at the job, talk about looking efficient!
Just a note to say …..Thank you! I have just completed my PAYE tax year end and it has to be the easiest yet, and I’ve been doing them for 31 years! Your reporting system for Subcontractors made it so easy to reconcile the HMRC payments. Thank you!
Construction Manager has become our core business system and because it is fully integrated with Sage Accounts we only need to enter transactions once. Instead of having to manage spreadsheets we can now look at Job Cost reports immediately. The system also enables us to easily monitor outstanding applications for payment and retentions which used to be a real headache and it makes completing CIS returns very straightforward. I don’t know how we managed without it!
The product is intuitive to use and the help and support to integrate the new software was outstanding. We had a good relationship with support, who provided outstanding care and instructions, making our transition seamless.
After doing extensive research on the internet I found JNC Solutions. After receiving an in-house demo of the software we ordered and installed the product. The software is easy to use once I got to grips with it and I have found it to be invaluable. It runs alongside my accounts package and has made things a lot easier regarding VAT and keeping track of retentions. The support I received over the phone was in-depth and covered all my issues. The support team are always there to answer any issues. Thank you JNC.
We import to Xero from JNC which our other software would not. We can drill down and sort and search jobs in JNC – It’s much better!
We have used CIS Manager built and supported by JNC since 2006. We have found the software to be very useful especially with the job costing and the CIS Tax responsibilities. We have had great assistance and guidance from JNC over all these years and are more than happy to recommend JNC and CIS manager to other construction companies.
The support team are all great. They know their stuff and are consistently good every time I need assistance. I couldn’t really be without them.
It is very easy to raise reactive jobs as and when they come in with an auto generated number specific to that job. Same with raising quotations for customers – easy to download into a PDF format to forward on. Overall, does what it needs to do and works well.
We’re very pleased with the construction Manager software which we have been using now for over 3 years. Prior to this keeping a track of applications and retentions was a nightmare. The CM software pulls it all together and keeps the process of costing against contracts so much easier. It’s now even easier since we implemented the timesheet module allowing operatives to enter their time via the mobile app. Your support are excellent and a credit to business.
I use JNC Construction Manager for job costing. The filter function enables me to filter between jobs, suppliers, customers etc. Now when my boss asks me about job costing for a particular job, it’s all there at the touch of a button. We’ve never really been able to do job costing but now we can keep an eye on jobs throughout, with a clear view of profit etc. right to the end. Support from the onboarding and support teams has been excellent!
Construction Manager has provided a huge increase in the effectiveness of cost management, with multiple users able to access immediate data for reporting purposes. We have found the helpline to be effective in helping us through implementation and ongoing maintenance in a friendly and efficient manner. JNC are keen to resolve any problems and keep us well informed . I am happy to recommend CM50 and the Maintenance Module.
Ease of use when starting, and all users find this an effective part of the business. It keeps all quotations and information in one place and does exactly as was described.
The Mrs is happy! She no longer gets piles of receipts and scribbled on paper to invoice each week! I can do it all on my phone in the time it takes to finish my coffee. You know what they say, Happy Wife happy Life!.
It’s very easy to use, and plenty of training was provided by JNC. I like that the POs are linked to invoices, and how reports provide a lot more information than I had been getting from our previous software. Construction Manager works very well with Sage 50. The JNC team are great, and made the implementation process very easy.
The benefits of migrating to the cloud were immediately apparent as the new system has much greater functionality, and the information we need is now available in seconds. We’ve seen a 20-30% improvement in operational efficiency as a direct result of migrating to JNC Construction Manager Cloud, largely driven by the performance of the cloud-native solution as well as full automation of our previously manual processes.
