Construction accounting software FAQs

Construction accounting software is a specialized type of accounting software designed specifically for the construction industry. It helps construction companies manage their financial transactions, track expenses, handle payroll, create invoices, manage budgets, and generate financial reports tailored to the unique needs of the construction sector.

Construction accounting is different from regular accounting in a few key ways. First, construction projects typically have long lead times, so construction accounting software needs to be able to track costs over multiple periods. Second, construction projects are often complex, with multiple contracts and vendors, so construction accounting software needs to be able to track all of this information. Third, construction projects are often subject to regulatory requirements, so construction accounting software needs to be able to help companies comply with these requirements.

The cost of Sage construction software varies depending on the features and modules you need as well as the number of users. Want pricing details? Talk to an expert.
