Foundation Software

Foundation ERP, presented by Foundation Soft, is an accounting-focused software solution for the construction industry. It manages construction projects from start to finish, including the job posting, scheduling, and project management. In addition, it includes all of the accounting and management tools you'll need to run a successful construction company. 

Other valuable modules include project management, scheduling tools, executive dashboards, service dispatch, etc. On-premise and cloud-based versions of the solution are available. For example, the Service Dispatch and Foundation Mobile apps keep teams connected in the field and the office. In addition, you can integrate construction document management modules with job costing and tracking for a centralized view of project processes. 

Foundation comes with hundreds of automated reports preloaded, including print and certified payroll formats. Still, it also includes an easy-to-use report builder that allows contractors to customize their data. For example, you can calculate labor burden, job costs, rates, trades, unions, states, and localities at the touch of a button.

Job Posting

In addition, you can create, print, and email electronic payroll reports to federal, state, and local agencies.

With user-friendly tools that automate routine accounts payable tasks, Foundation estimating software simplifies managing accounts payable.

Easily deployed and onboarding experience was amazing

October 2022

Gayle B.

Construction

Pros:
It was almost unbelievable how quickly we were set up and ready to go live with the software. We have eliminated our employees' manual data entry and just imported the timecards. All the payments have high visibility so that other people can see what was sent and invoiced. Payable features are simple, and data input is quick and uncomplicated.
Cons:
I would appreciate the ability to produce additional reports that only include the data I want. Also, some things require importation into Excel, which seems like an extra step that could be cut out.

A lifesaver for our company. It's totally recommended from a construction point of view

October 2022

Fred W.

Construction

Pros:
We weren’t able to manage our business like we used to (partly due to the pandemic and travel bans) and were seeing a decline in our projects. Foundation and its excellent project management capabilities saved our company!We had another program that we used (which I will not name), but it couldn’t handle the RFC. We can now accurately track open requests thanks to the Foundation.
Cons:
Foundation really doesn't have much wrong with it, since it meets almost all of our needs. If anything, it was our team that was reluctant to commit to the new software and change their old habits.

Great for billing and cost control in construction

October 2022

Holly R.

Construction

Pros:
It has a lot of automated features that help me save time, such as quick reversal buttons in accounting that will automatically create the reversal of AP Payments, AP Invoices, Journal Entries, and more. Change orders are closely related to our billing and updating the billing line item there will return you to the AIA screen automatically, which is great. Overall, the system allows you to enter your information quickly and generates a wide range of results for each department.
Cons:
They need to improve their reporting features. If Foundation ever showed promise of adding more reporting tools, such as clock-in time reporting, which is one of the most used reports in my company and I have to look elsewhere for, I would completely switch over.

The foundation is very reliable and has excellent reporting capabilities.

Doreen F.

Construction

Pros:
We have a multi-state and multi-union (and quite complex) system of work, and the Foundation has been able to manage all of that with ease. Time input is also really simple, and it's simple to tie hours to jobs and tasks. The support team is exceptional, and the technology is incredibly user-friendly. I have excelled at job costing, union reports, and HR data, including 401k reports. Also, there are no fees based on the number of employees in the system.
Cons:
I dislike the fact that if I have several payroll cycles calculated and I need to delete one, it deletes all the computed cycles! not just the one I had selected. I cannot explain in words how frustrating that is.

The foundation saves you hours of work and promotes collaboration.

Construction

Pros:
It has a distinct workflow consistency across modules and a close relationship with their Payroll4Construction product. There is no user conflict when several users are using the same module. Print templates for checks, invoices, and other documents are simple to edit.
Cons:
The reporting module doesn't offer a lot of personalization or customization options. However, we have been able to bend them just enough to satisfy our needs.

Great experience overall! ideal for mid-sized businesses

October 2022

Gyle B.

Construction

Pros:
Implementation was quick, and usability is a breeze. I love using the outstanding payroll features, especially the timecard import, which reduces data entry for all employees to a bare minimum with the exception of overhead. It has made accounting easy as well, and we can link copies of the invoices to the payable features so that other people can see what was sent and invoiced. Payable features are simple to use, and data input is quick and uncomplicated.
Cons:
I would appreciate the ability to produce additional reports and lists without including the report's other data. Some things require importation into Excel, which seems like an extra step that could be cut out.

With Foundation, project managers don't have to rely on others to get the reports they need.

October 2022

Mage T.

Construction

Pros:
It has enabled us to centralize all project-related documents. I don't have to keep anything I use every day on my computer because the software keeps everything in the database that relates to the project. This means anyone from my project team can go directly to the PM software to get an update instead of waiting for me to come online, and vice versa. I was able to do most things myself, but I had help whenever I needed it.
Cons:
It has a fully working mobile app but lacks the reports that our management requires to handle our job locations. There's also a lot of navigation required to figure things out, which adds to the total time spent.

One of the finest accounting software for construction business

So far I have been enjoying how it keeps all the documents in one spot and I don't have to open multiple files to find something related to one project.
Cons:
Can be a little tricky trying to navigate the software at the start.
