Read what our clients have to say about BRICS:
For over 10 years, BRICS has been an integral part of our bridge and heavy highway construction business. They have adopted every major technological improvement along the way and have helped us grow. BRICS understands our industry and they have developed a product which delivers what we want most reliability, accuracy, and customer service.
—Allan Smith, Controller, Bryant Contracting, Inc.
As a customer since 1990 we have been pleased with the BRICS software program and its ability to meet our needs. The other software systems we reviewed for consideration did not meet our needs for unit costing by phases of a job. The system allows us to combine the costs for labor, materials, subcontractors and other A/O items and then analyze its unit cost for that phase. We can get reports looking at costs by the phase, by the cost code and by the cost type. We have easy access to the detail behind any one of these costs if we have questions regarding the numbers, not just for job costs, but for each piece of equipment that we track, as soon as the payroll and the accounts payable information is posted. We are also able to track our phases against the states estimates using a phase number which we can then compare with the bid tabs for the states in which we work. Blue Ridge Software strives to meet the needs of road and bridge contractors in a way that no other software system that we know of does. Their quick response and one-on-one service would not be available from any other software company .

In addition to the attractive job costing features of BRICS 2000, an interface feature allows us to download our job cost budget from our estimating software package (HCSS) to the accounting system. The system allows us to track actual job productivity with budgeted productivity within each job analysis. BRICS 2000 provides a comprehensive and flexible framework for tracking all expenses and quantities.
—Fred Stump, Controller, Faulconer Construction Company, Inc.
For 51 years we kept production tonnage by hand, indexing the tonnage by job, plant and type of mix. Last year we approached Blue Ridge Software about using the BRICS 2000 accounting software to electronically import the production information and post it to the proper accounts, and to print out the written reports we required. After a few meetings to discuss the information available from our plant computers and our home office needs, Blue Ridge configured our system and we were ready to try an initial run. The program has worked flawlessly from the start. We now download the ticket data from our three plant computers to the office each week. We make corrections on the screen to tickets that were coded to the wrong job or were diverted in route, and then we post them to the accounting system, updating both job cost and Accounts Receivable. We get the information we need, print out our internal reports and bill our FOB customers in a fraction of the time it used to take. The Plant module offered by Blue Ridge Construction Software has been a real boon to our office productivity.
—Charlie Hurt, Contract Administrator, S.L. Williamson Company.
