Case Studies: Construction Accounting Solutions Implemented by UHY CAAS

UHY client accounting advisory services has successfully implemented various accounting technology solutions for a broad range of clients with different needs. Being software agnostic allows our team to be flexible and evaluate each client based on their need and the most cost-effective solution. Some contractors simply need some bookkeeping help; others have needed a full migration to a new accounting system.


A general contractor with $13M in annual sales and 45 employees recently migrated from Sage 50 to Sage 100 Contractor. The biggest advantage from the conversion is increased confidence and quicker turnaround with financials. They successfully mitigate risk, control job costs and have a real-time and accurate view of the financial health of the company. Sage 100 Contractor includes full payroll functionality, as well as expense and KPI management


A start-up construction company turned to UHY for a software recommendation to help run their growing business. Through a successful implementation of QuickBooks Online, the team is now able to automate accounting tasks, manage cash, and run payroll processing with job costing.


A commercial general contractor with 50 employees and $50M in annual revenue struggled with hiring and retaining accounts payable staff. After outsourcing the work to UHY, the AP and document control processes were automated, saving more than $100,000 a year. Custom reporting was developed giving them access to job cost payroll and equipment allocation.


Released in 2020, Sage Intacct Construction is being dubbed the next generation accounting system for the construction industry. Early adopters are finding faster access to real-time construction financial and operation data as well as streamlining of processes. Intacct makes having multiple entities a breeze and with its dimensional accounting, it’s easy to track not only jobs, but locations, employees, customers, etc.
