Disappointed

2014-06-04

The reporting options are pretty much unlimited.

Cons

However, this product was presented to us as a viable option to manage our service business, and we were assured that service management was a focus within the product.

Schedule as much time as possible, having the software demonstrated by an expert. If possible, download a trial version. Identify your business processes and have the software demonstrate how it will work through each process. Vendors will give you a lot of attention and time with the software while you are a potential customer. After you have made the purchase, you will no longer get the same attention, and working through these issues will be billed as training time.

Commercial/Residential Electrica Contractor. Jonas was the right fit for us.

2017-02-24

The Pro and Con to Jonas is it is HIGHLY customizable. With that, there needs to be a very thoughtful process to how you set it up in the beginning.

Pros

AIA/progress billing is easy with the step by step menu.

Cons

Cluttered menu items that hang in there because their long-time customers still use them.

The Payroll and G/L are great. For Job reporting ensure that you will be able to get your data into the system and included in the reports within the timeframe that you want. The after the fact reporting is great. There can be weaknesses in trying to get accurate daily results if your processes do not mesh with their processing.

Jonas has really streamlined our accounting processes and made us more efficient.

Pros

The main reason we switched to Jonas was for the Job Costing feature and it continues to to make our life easier.

Jonas is very solid from an accounting point of view - a lot of controls in place with regards to sub-ledger/trial balance/GL balancing etc. There are also a lot of modules to choose from. Just be careful that you do not limit yourself in terms of what the software can do (your company will change over the years) or choose a product that is not well known or tested.

Response from Ashley


Hi John,

I’m really sorry about the pain you’ve been experiencing. I know that an apology doesn’t make up for what you are going through, but we have been trying to get in touch with you but haven’t been able to reach you.
We did notice that you are currently on an older version of Jonas and not utilizing a lot of the modules that Jonas has to offer and believe that this might be the root cause of some of the issues you are experiencing.
Our newer versions have a different user interface and are included free of charge with your annual maintenance fee.
We do apologize and hope you have some time to connect so we are able to work through this and build a strong successful partnership.
Please feel free to call me back at 1(888)789-9073 ex. 2504 and we will schedule a complimentary system review.
We’ll keep trying to get in touch with you if we don’t hear back!

Ashley Pagliaro,
Manager, Account Management,
Jonas Construction Software

We are in the business of construction not IT or software

2019-02-26

Pros

It was much less expensive than many of the others we looked at. The service module is robust and we like the idea of the dispatch board. The payroll module is better than what we were using before

Cons

The report writing function doesn't work the same in each module. No dashboards. I am looking elsewhere after only 3 years
