Having realtime financial insights at your fingertips is critical to avoid cost overruns on your construction projects.

We help you manage all your financial documents in one place with real time updates so you always know if you’re over or under budget.

Project Budgets

Project budgets are constantly changing, and project managers should be prepared to make adjustments on a moment’s notice. The right software should show you, at-a-glance, the full spectrum of your current and projected costs, so you can make data-driven decisions day-to-day. Documentation easily managed in the program includes timesheets for employees, schedules of values, invoices, and payment applications.

Efficient software will allow you to review and approve budgets within the program, as well as send you daily and weekly cost reports to ensure you know where your budget stands.

BuildingBlok gives you the ability to create change orders yourself or manage orders submitted by other members of the team. Keep an eye on your finances and your bottom line with one central location for change orders. Learn more

Payment Applications

Contractors and subcontractors don’t get paid in a lump sum, but receive ongoing pay as they complete certain project milestones or percentages. These costs can be difficult to keep track of manually, especially when paying a fraction of the total job based on completion.

Construction cost management software removes much of this guesswork by allowing contractors and subcontractors to create schedules of values for easy, accurate payment. Input how much work a team member has completed and the software calculates what they’re owed. Subcontractors can also use the web-based application to submit pay apps themselves, saving your team valuable administrative time managing moving pieces of the project. Shared access to a contract’s documentation makes the scope of work easier for every member of the team and their unique tasks. Learn more

Chasing down invoices and managing a paper trail can easily become a full-time job in itself. Your contractors and subcontractors need to get paid, but a single missing invoice can cause lengthy delays and unhappy workers.

Centralizing your invoices ensures that all invoices are kept together and submitted correctly, so there’s no gap in billing or payroll. Workers can send their invoices directly through the software, replacing the paper trail with an audit trail that’s faster and easier to follow. You can also easily create your own invoices for quick and convenient payment. Learn more
