In any building program, there’s a lot to keep straight. In most school districts, all of the information that doesn’t go into the accounting system goes into spreadsheets. Someone is tracking all the pending changes for a contract in Excel; someone else is tracking withholds and stop notices. And when the books are closed at the end of June, the accounting system is restored with no memory of what transpired before — someone else has to keep a history of everything that occurred on a spreadsheet. Critical status information is scattered throughout your organization and you end up searching for needed information instead of managing.
Account-Ability was made to track all this information. Every purchase order, change order, invoice, and warrant is maintained so that you know the exact state of every contract in real time throughout the life of the project. All the key members of your management team have access to a consistent record of everything you need to know to make the best decisions regarding your project. With controls for invoices, warrants, and budgets, Account-Ability gives you the benefits of a disciplined financial team without hiring expensive consultants.
And, if something’s not moving forward as planned, you can identify it early to address the cause and get things back on track.
