Many Mechanical contractors face the unique challenge of having to manage construction projects while simultaneously running a service organization. STRUCTURE was designed with your needs in mind. STRUCTURE allows for extensive project cost coding, allowing each project to be broken down by phase, cost code, and cost type.
Tracking all of your subcontractors' compliance information and committed costs is easy to manage with STRUCTURE. In addition to allowing you to manage your larger construction projects, STRUCTURE's comprehensive Work Order module was designed to handle the needs of even the busiest of service departments.
Work Order allows for on-line dispatch and instant access to all the relevant customer information. With the service tech notification feature enabled, you can send a text message or email of the important call information directly to your technicians' mobile device. With the optional TechLinc app, you can send the electronic version of a Work Order right to the technicians tablet or cell phone, allowing them access to history and directions, they can even update their status, enter work descriptions, time and materials, capture a signature, and email the signed Work Order directly to the customer. All the entered information is updated real time into the STRUCTURE system ready to be billed. All the history you need is right at your fingertips - access data by call or location, or even get a history for each piece of equipment. Track the inventory on each service vehicle and determine who your most profitable technician is.
In Payroll, the need to track apprentice hours is easily accommodated with STRUCTURE. The Workforce Scheduling module allows Mechanical contractors to load their field resources and schedule the workforce in advance and on a daily basis, for both the service department as well as the construction division. You can even use it to forecast future manpower requirements. And because Workforce 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.
Hear What Our Customers Have To Say
"I work for a mechanical contractor and have been a user of C/F Data Systems since the early 1980's. We now have five companies that run the C/F Data software. I left my employer for a period of six years, in which time I used several different software packages, always wishing the other companies would change to C/F Data. I am now back with my original employer and have enjoyed every minute of being able to use C/F Data. "I cannot say enough about C/F Data, both their software and their support. We use the software to handle all of our accounts payable, detail job costing, accounts receivable, payroll, service work orders and purchasing items. It is extremely easy to get up to the minute information on any project or accounting information that would be required. "Their system is very user friendly and with staff changes new employees pick up the software quite easily. The support staff is the BEST in the business. In hard economic times it is imperative to have, up to the minute, information at the tips of your fingertips. I would HIGHLY recommend C/F Data Systems to any company looking to improve their bottom line, because they are fantastic!" –Tracey, The Merit Companies
We have been using C/F Data since 1998. We have 3 companies and we utilize C/F Data in different ways for each of our companies. We are a Mechanical Contractor, a Heating and Air Conditioning 24 Hour Service Contractor and a Sheet Metal Manufacturer. C/F Data has been great to work with for these 18 years, if they don't have a solution they are quick to help customize a solution. Always great Customer Service, they are like part of our company! – Alice Tomasino
As a Controller at Peak Mechanical I would say that C/F Data Systems is reliable and invaluable. I've been using this system at Peak Mechanical Services for three years but I have also used the software at other companies over the last 15 years. There have been many improvements over the years and support has always been available and extremely capable. We have a complex Union payroll and depend on the job cost system to project manage several multifaceted projects. I highly recommend this system! – Judy Malloy
STRUCTURE Mobile has been a game changer for our commercial HVAC service business. We have up to 30 technicians in four states and sometimes don't see them for months at a time. With the structure mobile program we are in constant contact with them and them with us. Paper work flows so much faster than our old system. We no longer need to collect paperwork on Mondays and that alone has helped to defer the cost of the system. I was happy to be part of the development of the program. – Jim Reidy
