Accounts Payable

Ajera recognizes that archicture and engineering firms primarily have two types of incoming invoices; those that are project related with cost and revenue implications and those that are general overhead. The Accounts Payable (AP) feature in Ajera automates the processing of these invoices and provides comprehensive data capture, customized vendor grouping, instant payables analysis and payment scheduling directly from the Dashboard.

Ajera simplifies the invoicing process with a very important time saver - no more entering information into multiple places. Once you have entered everything related to a project into the system, invoices become an automatic product of the entries made. Ajera provides not only industry specific invoice formats, but also the flexibility to customize invoices to meet your needs and client requirements:

  • Enter unlimited line items
  • Each line item can be charged to project/phase/activity or directly to GL Account
  • Alerts when consultant invoices exceed budget
  • Enter expenses for future project billings
  • Expenses charged to projects automatically assign appropriate billing rates AND are ready to bill
  • Produce 1099’s Automatically

See all of your accounts payable directly from the Dashboard to determine who you want to pay:

  • Pay by check, EFT, or debit card
  • Easily write-off vendor invoices
  • Quickly see vendors, invoices and line item charges to determine whom to pay
  • Eliminate manual tracking to determine when and how much to pay subconsultants
  • Add the Pay When Paid report to your Dashboard for quick viewing

Accounts Receivable & Collections

Ajera is a full featured accounting system that easily tracks outstanding invoices which is critical to maintaining a strong cash flow. To ensure invoices are always up-to-date and ready for billing, Ajera automatically adjusts invoices when cash receipts are posted. This allows invoices to be reviewed in real-time and processed quickly.

  • Distribute cash receipts to multiple invoices
  • Enter partial payments and apply by labor, expense and consultants
  • Easily enter credit memo’s to write off client invoices
  • Enter prepayments and later apply to multiple project invoices
  • Enter miscellaneous (non-client) receipts in the same deposit as clients deposits
  • View date specific invoice aging and report registers

Many collection issues are due to time consuming billing processes that are completed in multiple applications and delayed in review. These issues can be eliminated with an automated time entry system that combines accounting and project management into a single integrated system.

Billing and Invoicing

A/E firms have unique billing requirements that most generic accounting software does not consider or fulfill. A/E firms need the ability to:

  • Manage work-in-progress for common A/E billings
  • Time & Expense
  • Fixed Fee (lump sum)
  • Percent Complete
  • Unit Price
  • Percent of Construction
  • Mixed Format Invoices
  • Move time from phase to phase or project to project instantaneously
  • Handle complex mark-ups for labor, expenses and consultants easily
  • Group time by employee type, phase, task, activity or date
  • Eliminate obstacles when invoices need to be changed
  • Bill any project any time

Cash Management

Ajera does an excellent job with cash management: managing cash on hand and providing visibility to cash in reserve for future demands. While many generic accounting systems stop there, Ajera doesn’t. Ajera provides visibility to future indicators of cash flow such as backlog, work-in-progress and project profitability. Ajera provides a complete tool set for helping A/E firms convert employee resources into billable and collectible time which increases cash flow.

Features also include:

  • Visibility to Current Cash Position and Future Indicators
  • Bank Accounts
  • Detailed Trending

General Ledger

Ajera has the flexibility to produce financial statements for the entire firm, a single division or department. The General Ledger application also provides multi-period processing, both accrual and cash-basis accounting and a comprehensive audit trail. Ajera’s ease of use combined with its powerful capabilities streamlines all of your accounting transactions and provides detailed reports to make effective business decisions.

In-House Expenses

Many A/E firms have in-house costs, such as copies or mileage, that are not invoiced directly from a vendor yet need to be charged to a project. With Ajera, these costs are entered as in-house expenses and will be included in the total cost of the project and billed to the client. Being able to bill in-house expenses accrued for a project, credits the General Ledger for the cost and reduces overhead.

Payroll

Ajera is a complete accounting and project management solution that provides an efficient, cost-effective option for processing US payroll. Ajera’s integrated payroll eliminates duplicate effort, and streamlines the payroll process.
