A word from our General Manager 2017 / 2018
As we welcome the new 2017 / 2018 financial year. I like to share some of the exciting news planned for this year. Version 3 is on the market for NEW Constructor Users. We have been selling Version 3 this financial year just gone. I can hear you asking what about me? As an existing client we appreciate your patience in eagerly awaiting the release of version 3 for your company. Currently development is looking on how to tackle the task of converting your data. We need to be sure that you won’t lose any data, as this might cause some added disruptions that you don’t need. The goal of the conversion process is that on a Friday afternoon you kick off the conversion process and Monday morning when you come in its newly converted to a version 3 platform. We will keep you posted as to how the conversion process and testing of this is going. Some have already been contacted and we have a number of client Databases that we are using to test conversions. We will have a better idea in the coming weeks.
In the meantime we will be selling Version 3 to NEW clients. In addition if as an existing user you would like to start a fresh with a new user database let me know. We might be able to accommodate you in this venture. It might give you a chance to tidy up your database especially those with a number of years of use.
We currently have over 50 sites using the Version 3 system with new sites being added frequently. The CRM front end has been completed, both the Estimating and Accounting modules including Payroll are fully functional, we are working on more AR and AP reports. The Project Scheduling module is also functional – and works well as an in house scheduling system, we are working on reporting and more features for scheduling. We will start looking at mobile apps for scheduling sometime late 2017.
We are really looking forward to the next chapter in our Constructor world. The release to NEW user of version 3 will have no impact on your current version 2. We will continue to mainly fix bugs if they arise and develop minor enhancements as necessary. You will continue to receive these updates for your current system.
All the staff and myself here at Constructor look forward to working with your business in 2017 / 2018 financial.
