When it comes to a scalable and user-friendly software, few have ever come close to what Sage has accomplished. Backed by years of experience, Sage not only made it possible for small and medium-sized companies to automate their process, they also allowed multi-level enterprises to make their processes run even more efficiently without burning a hole in their pockets.
Although Sage is more popular for its suite of accounting soft wares, it actually also offers other software programs that touches on other industries. One of these software programs is the Sage Timberline. It might sound something new to you but in reality, Timberline has been around since the early seventies. It was bought by Sage in 2003.
The Sage Timberline Office software was made with the construction industry in mind. It is a construction estimation program that can also provide a whole suite of financial and operations management solution.
Sage Timberline is divided into several different modules and can perform a number of different functions involving accounting, estimating, procurement, production management, project management, real estate management, and service management. The soft ware’s accounting module includes your basic accounting features plus job costing capabilities, equipment cost and contract monitoring, and payroll processing. It also has a module on estimation that gives the user access to number of industry terms. Since Sage is all about being customizable, users can actually add their own term a well as formula. It also has modeling estimates that can be used to check what the effect of changes in the original plan would be.
The Sage Timberline Software also allows property developers and owners to manage leases. Since the software has an accounting module, processes such as billing and preparation of reports can be done with a few simple clicks. What’s more, the software’s crystal reports generation feature allows you to build your own report format thus enabling you to focus on only the information that matters.
Because of its user-friendliness and scalability, the Sage Timberline Office software is, without a doubt, the market leader when it comes to costing and project management for the construction industry.
