Custom home building. Commercial construction. Historic renovation. Plumbing, electrical, and HVAC repair. Property management. You name it. Wilson-Covington Construction does it with integrity, quality, and expert craftsmanship.
Not surprising, the award-winning general contractor from North Carolina needs a software system that can handle the various facets of its business. Nearly a decade ago, the company selected Sage 300 Construction and Real Estate and Sage Estimating to do the job.
“A big asset for us is the integration of all aspects of our construction operations,” explains Hayes Wauford, executive vice president of Wilson-Covington Construction. “From estimating, through project management, job costing, accounting, payroll, and service management, Sage 300 Construction and Sage Estimating have us covered.
The way Wilson-Covington Construction has integrated its whole business is not the norm for many contractors. In fact, nearly 64% of construction companies have two or less software applications that integrate and 26% have no software integration, according to the latest construction technology report published by JBKnowledge. For Wilson-Covington Construction, integration allows the company to, among other things:
- Automatically move estimate and service management data into the appropriate places in the company’s job cost accounting system.
- Review financial data for various aspects of the business—construction, service, and property management—both individually and in consolidation.
- Eliminate redundant data entry throughout the company.
