In 1979, C/F Data's very first client was Broadway Electrical, a 100+ person Union Electrical contractor in Boston, MA. From day one, the development of our software has always had a slant towards the unique requirements of the specialty trade.
In addition to the need of project cost coding, Electrical contractors face the challenge of pricing and billing out T&M jobs. C/F Data was one of the first companies to integrate with Trade Service to allow for automatic pricing. This integration has also served to help all aspects of Purchasing. STRUCTURE allows for special price matrices to be set up by vendor and by job for customized pricing and cost schedules.
In Payroll, the need to track apprentice hours is easily accommodated with STRUCTURE. The Workforce Scheduling module allows Electrical contractors to load their field resources and schedule the workforce in advance and on a daily basis, you can even use it to forecast future manpower requirements. Since the Workforce module integrates directly with the Payroll module, it streamlines the entire data collection process.
Tracking all of your project details is a snap with Project Management. Track your submittals, transmittals, and RFI's along with all job correspondence in one easy to manage area.

" I have been working with C/F Data Systems for 24 years. I find the Structure program extremely user friendly and it ties in with every aspect of the construction (electrical) industry. The support team at C/F Data is outstanding and they have always exceeded my expectations when resolving a problem or troubleshooting, I highly recommend C/F Data for all your construction needs" –Michelle, Renaud Electric & Communications, Inc.
We have been with C/F Data Systems since 1991 and it never fails to amaze us that whenever we are in a pinch C/F always resolves our issues. Theresa and Erin are my heroes - it's not often but when it happens I run into issues with payroll from having to re-establish our direct deposit file to something as simple as entering the wrong week-ending payroll dates which many of the users know can affect job cost reports and month end reports. Kudos to all the support staff and C/F management team. - Lettie Butler
"I used STRUCTURE "back in the day" when they first started, and started using it again at another company 4 years ago. I would not switch to another software vendor. Not only does STRUCTURE provide everything that is needed in the construction industry, their customer service is second to none. If you have a question, just pick up the phone and someone is there to answer it. They walk you through your problems and don't give up until you are satisfied.
"STRUCTURE provides the construction industry with all of the tools necessary to handle accounting, purchase orders, payroll, job costing, and much more. There is no need to use outside services for any of these applications. By having all of these resources in-house, it is easier to keep track of costs, scheduling, and planning. The software is user friendly and is compatible with Excel and Outlook. It is a great tool for any user in the construction industry. –Elizabeth, Florence Electric
As a longtime customer of CF DATA (over 20 years), we have grown accustom to the 1st rate service and technical support. Usually when companies make a great product and grow in size as a result, customer support suffers. Not so with CF Data. They focus on one product and support it perfectly. CF DATA is a great tool but its support is even better. – Ed Correia
We have been using C/F Data since 1998. We had demoed with 2 other programs before purchasing this one and have never regretted our decision. The transition and training to C/F Data went very smooth. This program has provided us with all that we could ever ask for as an electrical contractor. The support has been outstanding when needed. I love the fact that if you need a report for specific information it can be created. I would highly recommend this program.
