The Challenge: Outdated Software and Inadequate Reporting

When Anh Diep joined Western Oil Services as a Controller, the company was using an outdated software system called Accpac that failed to address their needs. The most pressing issue was the inability to generate meaningful construction reports, which prevented them from making effective business decisions to improve their operations and costs. 

Additionally, the steep price of software upgrades further strained their budget. A version upgrade that required a $15,000 consultant fee became the turning point for Diep to seek a new construction accounting software solution.

Watch how Western Oil Services transformed their business operations by implementing Jonas Construction Software’s comprehensive solution, streamlining their service module, job tracking, and financial reporting. See the impressive results and learn from their experience in this video case study.

The Solution: Jonas Construction Software’s Enterprise

Diep needed a software partner that could provide an intuitive system with essential features such as payroll, inventory, service management, job tracking, and enhanced construction reports. Jonas Construction’s Enterprise software emerged as the ideal solution.

Jonas Enterprise is an all-in-one construction software, which integrates the field and back office to provide the most up-to-date data on business costs and operations. With no need to purchase additional third-party software and software updates included, Diep could ensure the software would always be up-to-date and supported by Jonas. 

“Enterprise is our whole software program.
Everybody’s using it for everything”

Seamless Transition and Exceptional Support

During the transition to Jonas Construction Software, Diep anticipated potential issues. However, with exceptional support from Jonas staff, the process was smooth, and each department at Western Oil quickly adopted the Enterprise modules, creating a truly integrated solution.

The Impact: Improved Reporting and Streamlined Operations

The Service Module has significantly impacted Western Oil Services’ operations. Diep stated, “It’s an easy module…I don’t really have to worry about it. There’s not a lot of extra work I have to do to get information out of it. It reports well right to the financials.” The module allows Diep and his team to efficiently extract data and track project progress.

By implementing Jonas Construction’s Enterprise Software, Western Oil Services has streamlined its operations, improved financial reporting, and enhanced overall productivity.
