Client's say...

“I have been in construction for over 25 years and in the past I have used different kinds of software . About 5 years ago I purchased The Simple Series and this is the best software that I have ever used! True there was a big learning curve but their team was great to teach me through training sessions and today I am using The Pro Series. This is a very powerful program and you can upgrade, add modules as your company grows! I am also using the CSG Web Portal and CSG Central Remote time card entry module for capturing time in the field for processing of payroll, job cost and financial reporting. CSG Central syncs with Professional Series which is another great feature! I would highly recommend this software to any contractor!

The thing I like the most about the software is that it is a fully integrated system from the first contact with a prospect customer , to estimating the project, to selling the job, to accounting, to scheduling. I always know where I am at with a job and how my business is doing. I believe by purchasing this software I have increased revenue.”
