Pros

It is a full enterprise system, it has a nice owner dashboard. The job costing is great and the report writer is also good.

The easy integration was the best part about this product. I have been through many accounting integrations and this was by far the easiest.

Cons

Everything else about this software is bad. The customer service us horrible, the accounting system has glitches all the time, Information is hard to find in all of the menus they list.

To add a cost in the PO and then have to change it in the parts master is ridiculous; it should update automatically.

Another negative is that they are a Canadian company and the way they perform some of their business practices are different than what we perform. The function and terminology is different.

Cons

There are no things that I don't like about the software, anything that I questioned or had a hard time with Premier support fixed or helped me with quickly.

Sluggish when dealing with large amounts of data.

It's very difficult to get it to integrate with our current estimating software. We're in the process of changing over, so I know it's only temporary.

Excellent customer service

Reviewed 8 years ago
Pros

Jonas has excellent customer service.

Cons

The "How To" instructions could be more detailed. While the implementation team goes through the software in great detail, once you are live, there is a learning curve and more detailed user guides could help eliminate some support calls.

Outstanding Product with great customer service

Reviewed 2 years ago

Jonas delivered, I would recommend Jonas to anyone interested in an accounting system integrated with project controls for a construction company.

Pros

The level of customization and the fact that it is online-based with powerful capabilities.

Cons

The implementation took longer than I expected, in part because I underestimated the effort required to do it.

Great program for General Contractors!

Reviewed 7 years ago
Pros

Its great for managing jobs. You can upload pictures and documents to the jobs. The accounting side seems solid. I would very much recommend this to a General Contractor to manage sub-trades and all together management.

Cons

It's not designed to work well with small contractors. It does not function with retail sales at all and has no capability to create work orders. I think i might lean toward Jonas Enterprise for that.

I love this software!

Pros

I love that everything is on one platform, tech support/customer support is AMAZING! The job dashboard is very easy to navigate for Po's and CO's. This system has improved level of accuracy, and time when entering data in AP. I am still learning how to run payments and entering daily reports but both modules have increased our efficiency.

Cons

I have no issues with Jonas, just with my extensions.

Projects run smoother with Jonas

Reviewed 2 years ago

Our company is small and Jonas Premier enables key players to have more focus on resolving problems in the field while keeping the office organized and current with contracts and bookkeeping thanks to the ease and efficiency of field data input.

Pros

Quickly generating Change Orders, POs for all projects and the ability for the software to handle RFIs, Submittals and Transmittals for US Government projects kept systems organized well. During the original set up, the tutorials and training were very well done.

Cons

Having an option for internal payroll through Jonas would be a helpful option.

Maturing with JONAS

Reviewed 6 years ago

It was hard work. The JONAS staff was always encouraging and available. I feel that JONAS is not just a product we use but a partner with MAX Construction, Inc. I love sharing my ideas with JONAS. Some even are being adopted. Some are not, but as a team we are getting the best of both worlds and a product that can be catered to our needs. JONAS listens and adapts the ideas that will benefit the majority.

Pros

All information is in real time. Now that we are set up and operating we are developing the reports, and switching over to JONAS as our total system. Eventually we hope to be paperless. I love that I can access JONAS from anywhere in the world. I like the challenge of making this product something special. It looks like it was written for our needs only and yet it services such a large variety of customers.

Cons

It would be nice if all documents could be scrolled.

Needs more training - both in-house or at Jonas Head Quarter by invitation

Pros

System is continuously been improved on each update and become more user friendly. Excel feature and transferring data from excel to Jonas is one of the best feature available and it reduces much of our work. Customer service is excellent

Cons

Training - Would like to have more online training options available to keep update with Jonas Premier.

Pros

We have just started with Jonas but I can already confirm that it will make our processes easier and more efficient. All modules flow together and I'm really thankful for the recorded webinars to refer back to. The team at Jonas is outstanding!

Cons

There was a lot to learn, training was fast paced, and it was difficult to keep up at times. It was quite confusing to be learning totally different modules within the same week. Seemed to bounce back and forth. On the flip side, the team at Jonas was very supportive & helpful throughout.

Outstanding Software, Implementation and Training

Reviewed 2 years ago

It was a little scary to leave our old system and processes but once we started the training in group settings and the one on one sessions, we became very comfortable with the software adn the fact that the folks at Jonas are superior in their jobs! [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] was our "personal trainer" and she was wonderful! She learned how we do business, and explained the software to us in a way that was easy to learn. We are grateful and glad that we made the transition to Jonas!

Pros

The Jonas Premier Software is allowing us to pull the two key functions of our business together, the Project Management and the Accounting. Running a successful project involves two areas for a Project manager, good coordination and solid financial oversight. Jonas Premier is bringing these two functions together for us.

Cons

Perhaps an estimating feature which would eliminate the need to push the estimate template into Jonas.

Jonas is the best thing to happen to our company !

Reviewed 8 years ago
Pros

Jonas Software has gotten everyone in our company on one page. Retrieving information is just a click away. I no longer have ask my coworker for her reports on jobs. I can just log in and run them myself. Since using Jonas, we have started running our office much more efficiently. The staff at Jonas is very knowledgeable and patient. During my training period with Jonas, I never felt rushed. They walked me through learning their system and gave me step-by-step instructions for reference. When I email the support team with questions, I get an immediate response.

Cons

Nothing comes to mind. Since I started using this product, I haven't come across any issues that weren't resolved with a quick call to Jonas Support.
