Construction General Ledger Software

Financial Management
for Contractors

The FOUNDATION® General Ledger Module enables contractors to perform daily transactions and period-end procedures easily, plus report from a robust and scalable database.



General Ledger Features

Construction Company Financials

Instantly prepare professional income statements, balance sheets and cash flow reports with construction ledger software to show the health of your construction business for any point in time — as well as:

  • View and post over/under billing (WIP) and overhead.
  • Run standard and comparative trial balances.
  • Set account budgets for any length of time, and report for any period.

Daily and Period Bookkeeping

Manage your daily, monthly, quarterly and yearly construction financials with construction accounting software designed to reduce data entry and time spent on routine processes.

  • Reconcile bank accounts simply by selecting each of your cleared transactions.
  • Schedule recurring journal entries, or easily enter one-time adjusting entries.
  • Close out year-end in just a few-steps when you’re ready — and reverse if you need to.

Secure Audit Trails

Count on a steel-trap database to record every transaction in the life of your construction ledger — even reversals. FOUNDATION® provides you with a detailed and reliable audit trail that helps protect your business against bookkeeping mysteries and enables you to see general ledger activity for any timeframe.

The accounting side of the software, A/R, A/P and G/L are just as powerful as the job cost side.”

— Bill Breyton, CEO, AMS Electric
