Is OSAS right for your business?

OSAS is a great fit for many businesses. Find out if it's the right choice for you! Are you looking for a OSAS demo, technical support, product or pricing information or to simply to compare OSAS with competitive options? Quickly get answers and the information you need.

Contractors’ Job Cost (CJC) enables you to find profitable jobs and keep the profit in the job by maintaining control over your operations. You can’t be on site every day-and with CJC, you don’t have to. When it’s make it or break it, CJC can help you win the contract, see the project through, and realize a healthy profit. Maximize CJC’s performance by integrating it with other OPEN SYSTEMS Accounting Software (OSAS) modules.

With CJC you can save money and stay informed. Timely, detailed information lets you know the status of each job. Job Detail reports show you every cost a job has incurred, alert you to excessive costs before they get out of hand, and compare your expenses to your estimates. You don’t have to wait for monthly reports. And, you can minimize your overruns. You’ll also save time and data entry costs because the reports you need are included in the system: no need to keep information in a number of separate spreadsheets.

OSAS Contractors’ Job Cost Offers Choices and Flexibility with These Key Features

  • Improve your profit margin and reduce your billing problems with CJC change order tracking, built-in AIA billing forms, Job Invoicing, and Cost Plus Invoicing features. You’ll ensure that billings to owners or general contractors are fully documented and can be promptly processed.
  • CJC is suitable for both large and small contracts. Because CJC is flexible, you can set up small, simple jobs with only one phase or large, complex jobs involving many phases. You tailor CJC to your needs.

  • Determine at a glance how far along the Job/Phase is with the Percent Completion function.
  • User definable fields and cost types provide added flexibility.

  • Flexible worker’s compensation setup allows you to calculate the rate by percent, an hourly rate, or by a fixed amount.
