As you may have noticed if you are using Microsoft 365 (Office 365), Microsoft offers a new AI tool called Copilot.
Here's an example of the benefits this tool offers. We asked Copilot "how to check my trial balance" ... Here's brief sample of Copilot's reply:
A trial balance is a report that shows the balances of all the accounts in your general ledger at a specific point in time. It is used to check for errors and prepare financial statements. To check your trial balance, you need to follow these steps:
● Designed to work with Microsoft Office 365, eTEK Online integrates a complete user-defined multi-phase project/job/phase/task tracking structure with a complete 4-seqment user-defined general ledger account numbering scheme
● at the most detailed level of source transactions ( labor, material and equipment), this insures that
● project management/job cost reports ultimately correctly tie-in to financial reports; system includes
● WIP reports, billing & receipts (over/under billing) and audit trails that CPA’s, bankers and bonding agencies demand; this insures timely release of construction funds.
● Extensive built-in reports are designed to facilitate supervision of both commercial and residential projects (including those for government organizations).
● On-demand, on-line, instant status of actual costs vs. estimates are included down to any level of detail desired.
● System computes “%-complete” per industry standards, and allows use of “estimates-to-complete”.
● Billing options include: A.I.A, contract billing, and the most flexible T&M billing in industry (if you can define how you want to bill, eTEK can do it).
● System manages change orders of all types.
Why buy QuickBooks "add-ons" to get what you need as a contractor in the construction business?
Why bog down your accounting system with detailed job costing when eTEK provides complete integration so accounting charts of accounts are not used for job costing details. eTEK automatically links your job cost details to the appropriate accounting codes used in your business.
eTEK systems are based on an open, non-proprietary, relational database architecture. You can easily use eTEK for multiple divisions/departments.
Unlike QuickBooks® and others, there are no practical limits on the number of customers, suppliers, and other records you can create and maintain + eTEK provides flexible reporting.
Tell us what you need and we'll show you how to do it.
This quote from the Founder & CEO of eTEK makes the most important point we need to emphasize - namely, regardless of who's software you use, it absolutely must, above all else, help you maintain and improve the profitability of your business.
The design of eTEK Online puts a major emphasis on providing key management reports that focus on controlling costs and making sure you have the ability to track the current and future profitibility of all of your projects and jobs.
As linked in "our store" here is an example of what we mean. Please make sure you have read our white paper on how to improve profitability.
Starting as small as a single user, you can grow as large as desired with eTEK with no need to re-train users, or convert to some “other brand” or version of software as your business grows. eTEK excels at offerring flexible multi-user installations; with options to set "role-based" application security.
You can start with a small 1-3 user user system, then move up to take full advantage of eTEK's powerful SQL Server database, capable of supporting literally hundreds of users.
Modern accounting software must be easy to add additional users and to do that in a way that helps them become productive as soon as possible. With eTEK, you can grow as fast as literrally one phone call and the "click of your mouse".
