    Pretty good so far. It took a while to get everyone in the company on board with new processes but that's to be expected. I think as time goes on, it's getting easier and everyone is seeing/realizing the benefits

    Pros

    So far, the individual approvals for invoices, subcontracts, COs are all really great and have already streamlined a lot of clunky process we had in the past. It's hard to evaluate job costing and budget management since we don't have a ton of historical data in there for jobs yet.

    Cons

    It's very difficult to get it to integrate with our current estimating software. We're in the process of changing over, so I know it's only temporary

    Budgeting has been our biggest weakness. This is getting us back on track and exposing areas where we need to do a better job.

    Pros

    The budgeting and subcontract is something we need greatly. This tool is helping us get our budgets in line and mange our subcontracts better.

    Cons

    Did not like having to setup the journals. You had to set up General Journal, Sales and purchase. These are pretty standard so not sure why these need to be set up

    Buyer Beware

    Reviewed on 2018/02/21

    Pros

    The amount of positive reviews online make it look like a quality "next generation" product for the changing construction industry.

    Cons

    Customer Service is very slow to respond to requests. Monthly, if not weekly server issues that cause our staff an inability to do their job for hours at a time. Closed Financial reports will change on Jonas side without knowledge to their team for why. When confronted with these issues the Jonas team is not responsive or understanding.

    Incredible customer service + great multi-company environment

    Reviewed on 2023/05/11

    Pros

    We are a growing real estate developer that migrated to Premier from QuickBooks. During this transition, we’ve been pleased with the multi-company environment that allows you to easily switch from any screen and run consolidated financial statements by company. The software provides full job costing with multiple levels of detail, such as budget reports and tools, seamless integration between job cost and GL financials. It easily allows you to request and track approvals for invoices, contracts, PO’s and provides electronic signature as an additional benefit. Premier Excel permits you to pull live accounting data for endless custom report possibilities and allows you to attach files for all types of transactions to store in a folder system that’s easy to use.

    Cons

    It’s a learning curve on how everything works with some inconsistency between modules in terms of functionality and layout, however, the team provides outstanding customer service and support when it’s needed. As our projects progress, we look forward to leveraging more of Premier’s features, such as the automated bank draws and vendor invoice portal.

    Overall, my experience with Premier was positive. The software's extensive feature set and powerful project management tools provided a comprehensive solution for managing complex projects. The ability to track progress, allocate resources, and generate insightful reports significantly enhanced project efficiency and success. While the learning curve for some advanced features was a minor challenge, once I became familiar with the software, it became an indispensable tool for project management. With continuous improvements in user onboarding, Premier has the potential to deliver an even more seamless and user-friendly experience.

    Pros

    One of the things I liked most about Premier was its comprehensive feature set and the wide range of tools it offered. From project management to resource allocation, budgeting, and reporting, Premier provided a robust and integrated solution for managing complex projects. The ability to track project progress, assign tasks, and collaborate with team members in real-time was extremely valuable. Additionally, the customizable dashboards and advanced analytics provided valuable insights into project performance and helped in making data-driven decisions.

    Cons

    While Premier had many positive aspects, one thing I liked least was the learning curve associated with its advanced features. The software had a plethora of options and settings, which could be overwhelming for new users or those who were not familiar with project management software. It would be beneficial to have more user-friendly tutorials or onboarding resources to help users navigate and make the most of Premier's capabilities.
