B Ball Contractors are specialist builders based in Kent. They take on an array of projects including general building, maintenance, new build, refurbishment and electrical works. B Ball Contractors are a family run business with over 35 years of experience.
B Ball Contractors had been managing their construction accounts the same way for a long time. As the company expanded the process of managing quotes, work in progress and sales applications was becoming lengthy and open to inaccuracies, as they were manually collating information on a spreadsheet.
Profit and loss reporting also proved difficult. Having all the information spread across numerous spreadsheets presented the team at B Ball Contractors difficulty in accurately reporting on costs for each job.
B Ball Contractors had therefore been contemplating if they needed to move away from Sage to help them deal with the day to day running’s of the business.
After searching online, the team at B Ball came across JNC which provides cloud-based construction accounting software for Sage 50. For B Ball Contractors this meant removing the hassle of having to move their accounts away from Sage 50. Construction Manager 50 is designed to bolt on to existing accounting platforms to specialise in the administration of construction accounting.
B Ball Contractors have taken on the Quotes module along with Construction Manager 50. This gives them the ability to create a quote and send it onto the prospect. Then once the quote has been accepted this can them be easily created as a contract within Construction Manager, providing them with one place to record all activity. This way the profit and loss is recorded against each job giving an easy view of what stage each job is at and also how profitable the job is at every stage.
Sales applications can be raised without the need to raise a VAT invoice. Outstanding and overdue applications are automatically flagged along with due and overdue retentions
