XactRemodel® Now Features A-Systems JobView® Integration

 — May 8, 2008 — 

Construction and remodeling professionals now have a powerful and accurate way to control their costs.

XactRemodel, Xactware's estimation software designed specifically for remodeling professionals, now features the ability to integrate with A-Systems JobView accounting software.

A-Systems JobView is a scalable job costing accounting package designed specifically for the construction industry. With JobView, remodelers track costs associated with all jobs and phases of construction. JobView is a robust job costing software with versions available for all sizes of construction companies, from the smallest startup to multi-company conglomerates. JobView will grow with a company, fitting their needs as they grow.

XactRemodel is used by remodelers to estimate and sell a wide range of remodeling projects and provides users with

  • Local pricing data for over 460 areas.
  • Sketch tools that allow users to create two- and three-dimensional views of the project.
  • One-click wizards that can estimate plumbing, insulation, HVAC, and electrical with a single mouse click.

With the integration feature, users can transfer estimates directly from XactRemodel into A-Systems Job View by either creating a new job or updating an existing one.

"XactRemodel with JobView gives remodeling professionals in companies of all sizes a complete and comprehensive business management tool that can have a big impact on the bottom line--especially in these challenging times," said Arnold S. Grundvig, President and CEO of A-Systems. "Controlling costs is essential if a construction company is to succeed, and JobView was designed to monitor actual costs, line by line, phase by phase, job by job, comparing them to budgeted figures from XactRemodel."

Trial versions of both XactRemodel and JobView are available for remodelers who want to try the systems before they buy.

"When combined with A-Systems JobView, XactRemodel provides a powerful interface for remodeling and construction professionals that will provide a more advanced, accurate way to track jobs costs and maintain budgets," says Jeffery C. Taylor, Xactware's Associate Vice President over the XactRemodel software. "Integration with JobView gives our customers a more complete system for their business."
