Pros
It has been fantastic, webinars are great for refreshers or learning something new or training a new employee.

SW

Stephanie W.

Customer care and tech support are great. They will help you with anything you need.

NM

Nichole M.

Extremely happy with the product. Very functional and great value for money.

MB

MARC B.

Cons
One of my most common complaints regarding accounting systems is the lack of support. That has never been a problem with FOUNDATION since we began recommending them in 2000.

GF

Gary F.

Lack of tax reports and tax information availability for reporting taxes. Difficult processes, too many restrictions where they shouldn't be and not enough where there should.

TS

Talisha S.

Overall experience was incredibly poor. I wish I would have stuck with my gut, got an accounting software and used HCSS Heavyjob for daily costs and timecards.

Project Management

Reviewed a year ago

It's been wonderful to implement a new software to our project management.

Pros

This software is great for keeping all documents relating to a project in one spot. It links all the items I use daily to the project so I don't have to store them on my computer.

Cons

Took a little navigation to find where and how to get things in there. As well as the form making, but overall, not much I don't like.

Vendor response

Thank you for your positive review and taking time to share your feedback with FOUNDATION. We are happy to hear our software is meeting your expectations and making life easier for you and your project management team. Let me know if you'd like to talk with someone about making those custom forms and reports easier for you. We are happy to help. -Robin, rmo@foundationsoft.com

Foundation Software makes construction accounting easy to understand.

Reviewed 9 months ago

Foundation has made record keeping easy and ready for outside auditors review procedures.

Pros

Cost, user friendliness, help screens updated and online, and support is second to none.

Cons

Absolutely nothing! Hope to expand our usage of Foundation software because we believe that we have not experienced the whole package benefit to date with different modules.

Vendor response

We look forward to a continued relationship with you and your team. You mentioned you'd like to expand your usage with our software.

Strong Program, lack of support and updates

Reviewed 5 years ago

There are better programs out there.

Pros

The program does it all besides estimating. Has a good system of checks and balances and everything is tracked so very hard for employees to cover their tracks. It does a lot well but everything has its hiccups.

Cons

There are several things I dislike about the product as it has so much potential to be 10x better yet they have no ambition to make it better. 95% up the updates released by foundation software are fixes to glitches or problems. Very rarely is there an actual new feature or upgrade to the program. There are several flaws with the program that would be easy to fix, which have been suggested but...

Vendor response

Hi Al. We appreciate you taking the time to provide your thoughts on FOUNDATION. Honestly it is not what we expected to hear from you and are deeply concerned about your disappointment. We strive to produce the absolute best product and service for our clients, although we understand at times using new software can be frustrating. One of our training managers will reach out this week to coordinate a time that’s convenient for you and discuss your concerns in greater detail. We hope that you will take our call so we can work toward resolving any outstanding issues and make FOUNDATION a successful accounting investment for your construction business. We look forward to working with you.

Great product with AMAZING customer service

Reviewed a year ago

We have had a great experience with Foundation, for our size business, it's perfect!

Pros

The software is easy to use, and customizable. It's simple, and customer service is Fantastic.

Cons

I wish there were more standard caned accounting reports like TTM income/balance sheets and the ability to customize standard budget reports. More filtering criteria to run reports would be great.

Vendor response

We are happy to hear our software is meeting your expectations and helping to make life easier for you and your team. Let me know if you'd like to talk with someone about those reports.
