I have a backlog of industry posts that I will be posting over the next week or so, but I’ve also been sent a couple of other news snippets….
1: Corecon updates
Pitched at the small to medium-sized end of the north American market (“Run your entire operation for about $1 a day!”), Corecon Technologies recently updated its CoreconLink for QuickBooks Desktop and Sage 50 Canada accounting software, providing users of Corecon V7 construction estimating, project management and job cost software with increased efficiency between Corecon V7 and some popular accounting systems. This streamlined functionality was already available in CoreconLink for QuickBooks Online, SAP Business One and Xero accounting software, but there are some updates of CoreconLink accounting utilities for the online software applications as well. Read Corecon’s news release.
Meanwhile, if you work in the southern hemisphere….
Another cloud-based construction software business, Small Builders was launched by a Sydney, Australia-based building and construction lawyer and a member of the Master Builders Association, with the objective of helping its users run sustainable businesses (“Small Builders gets you paid, gets you compliant, and gets you organised” – all for Au$990 a year – the starter rate).
At first glance, the solution seems to be strong on contract management (so perhaps similar to the UK’s Sypro, only aimed at Australian SMEs) John Dela Cruz says he aims to help SMEs avoid poor business practices:
“The Small Builders building software has been built for the needs of home builders and commercial contractors. If you are good on the tools and managing relationships then Small Builders gives you the essentials you need to run a successful business. You don’t need to be good with computers, Small Builders has been built for you – the small business that needs a practical solution – it’s quick and simple to use.”
