The program learns your business

The materials you use, the subs, equipment, and everything else, gets added into the main brain of the program automatically. Between turning Build In The Black construction software off and on again, from job to job, it keeps a "master list" of job tasks and job items, so that they can be used again and again. Your benefit is that you only need to type in a new thing once, then choose it from your growing lists forever.


Have you ever had leftover material from a job? Does you bookkeeper give you heck when you glom it into the next job without "accounting" for it?
Using the built-in inventory controls of Build In The Black, this construction project management software will automatically record usage of your material assets. You can also enter all of your equipment that you own. As you use up materials on the job, the inventory asset goes down and the cost is nothing for the job. As you use your own equipment, depreciation is factored in, and there's no other equipment rental cost.
