I use JNC Construction Manager for job costing. The filter function enables me to filter between jobs, suppliers, customers etc. Now when my boss asks me about job costing for a particular job, it’s all there at the touch of a button. We’ve never really been able to do job costing but now we can keep an eye on jobs throughout, with a clear view of profit etc. right to the end. Support from the onboarding and support teams has been excellent!

Debbie P - Company Secretary

It has really helped me manage costs in our business, and as we continue to expand it is proving to be vital. Customer service is very good from everyone we’ve spoken with.

Georgina - Office Manager

Construction Manager really makes tracking invoices, receipts, and purchase orders a very simple process. It’s made it easy for me to enter purchase orders and invoices ready for our accountant to access all the information they need to complete our VAT returns, etc.

Nicky - PA to the Directors

We have used CIS Manager built and supported by JNC since 2006.  We have found the software to be very useful especially with the job costing and the CIS Tax responsibilities.  We have had great assistance and guidance from JNC over all these years and are more than happy to recommend JNC and CIS manager to other construction companies.

Christine Johnstone - Construction Manager, Stone Construction

After doing extensive research on the internet I found JNC Solutions.  After receiving an in-house demo of the software we ordered and installed the product. The software is easy to use once I got to grips with it and I have found it to be invaluable. It runs alongside my accounts package and has made things a lot easier regarding VAT and keeping track of retentions. The support I received over the phone was in-depth and covered all my issues.  The support team are always there to answer any issues. Thank you JNC.

Mandy McCann - Energy Controls Limited

Construction Manager has provided a huge increase in the effectiveness of cost management, with multiple users able to access immediate data for reporting purposes. We have found the helpline to be effective in helping us through implementation and ongoing maintenance in a friendly and efficient manner. JNC are keen to resolve any problems and keep us well informed . I am happy to recommend CM50 and the Maintenance Module.

Kevin Hayes - Construction Manager - Barry Stewart & Sons Limited

Just a note to say …..Thank you! I have just completed my PAYE tax year end and it has to be the easiest yet, and I’ve been doing them for 31 years! Your reporting system for Subcontractors made it so easy to reconcile the HMRC payments. Thank you!

Linda Porter - Ford Civil Engineering

Construction Manager has become our core business system and because it is fully integrated with Sage Accounts we only need to enter transactions once. Instead of having to manage spreadsheets we can now look at Job Cost reports immediately. The system also enables us to easily monitor outstanding applications for payment and retentions which used to be a real headache and it makes completing CIS returns very straightforward. I don’t know how we managed without it!

Craig Sutherland - HW Energy

Easy to manage, adaptable and accurate – it has worked well for us. Everyone I’ve dealt with such as sales, onboarding and support have made the process smooth and easy. Hats off to the JNC team – they’re attentive, very knowledgeable and don’t mind going the extra mile.

Ray - Procurement Manager

We knew we needed a better solution for our mobile engineers. Mobile Manager has helped us to improve efficiency, reduce cost and ensure each step of the costing and invoicing process is implemented in good time with little or no errors. It has eliminated a lot of our paper processes which lessens back-office procedures and improves service to our customers as well.

Cindy Payne - R.F. Blount & Sons Ltd

It’s very easy to use, and plenty of training was provided by JNC. I like that the POs are linked to invoices, and how reports provide a lot more information than I had been getting from our previous software. Construction Manager works very well with Sage 50. The JNC team are great, and made the implementation process very easy.

Carrie - Group Accountant

We have been using Construction Manager with Sage since 2007 and we are pleased with the ease of use. The software links seamlessly with Sage. The Job activity can be easily accessed by our Contracts team, and there appears to be no limit to how many can access at one time. The support team are ever helpful, and will log onto our computers to rectify.
