Specifically designed to meet the estimating, project management and accounting needs of homebuilders, maestro*ERP is an advanced solution for today’s performance requirements.
Given the growing complexity of the construction industry, maestro*ERP offers what today’s home builders need to better manage company finances and projects.
Maestro*ERP offers a complete accounting solution that is fully integrated into all of maestro*’s specialized construction project management modules. All information passes through the project management modules automatically, eliminating wasteful entry duplication between operational and accounting systems. Maestro*ERP’s design ensures that both the accounting and operations departments have the specific tools that they need to get the job done right, without compromising the availability or quality of the information they require.
Project data such as contracts and change orders are directly integrated into the accounting and job costing systems, reducing risk of double entry and eliminating errors. Updates are stored by date so that changes to the projection status can be analyzed over various selected periods. Maestro*ERP supplies accurate and timely information from the beginning to the end of the project. Combining projections with the ‘actual’ and ‘commitment’ information allows project managers to be proactive in their management process.
Unique in the industry, Maestro*ERP’s electronic document management module is fully integrated throughout all other modules. Drawings, site directives, meeting minutes, daily diaries and many other documents can be stored and organized within maestro*ERP, creating a virtual job book that can be accessed from anywhere you can access maestro*ERP. For example, a shop drawing linked to a requisition could be sent with an order. It will then be accessible from the requisition, order, project and even the related supplier file. You can define custom document categories (using your own terminology) for projects, customers, suppliers, contracts, employees, etc. Help shield yourself against future claims by being able to reproduce all communications (e-mail, fax, etc.) and documents for your projects, even if the project manager is no longer with your team. Maestro*ERP is the only software to offer this level of project management and collaboration in a fully integrated ERP software solution.
