J. CORSI DEVELOPMENTS

Background


J. Corsi Developments is an award winning, family owned and operated home and condo builder with decades of construction experience. With the goal of streamlining their business processes, reducing their reliance on multiple software, and enhancing their overall efficiency, J. Corsi Developments quickly realized a change was necessary. They began their search for a single software solution that could meet both their job cost and accounting needs. As the end of their search concluded, J. Corsi Developments decided to leverage Jonas Premier Construction Software to unify their software system and handle their construction software needs moving forward.

 

RECOGNIZING THE PROBLEM

Before making the switch to Jonas Premier, J. Corsi Developments was using a combination of software. Between Sage, QuickBooks, UDA, and Microsoft Excel, performing basic tasks was not only time consuming, but also extremely inefficient. As Richard Corsi, V.P. at J. Corsi Developments stated, “Because we were using so many different solutions, I was constantly switching back and forth between software and I wasn’t able to accurately tie our job costing numbers to our accounting.” The inability to link job costing with accounting was a big concern for J. Corsi Developments as they were unable to effectively trust their numbers. Another issue they experienced was reduced productivity, simply due to the fact that they had to jump in and out of multiple software systems, which wasted a lot of time and slowed down their processing capabilities. With their information stored across numerous software systems, attaining an accurate view of the business proved extremely difficult, which was one of the main reasons why they decided to switch to an integrated software solution - Jonas Premier.

With Premier, we have a single software solution that can handle both our accounting and job cost needs, and it’s been great for us.” J.
