The Best Construction Accounting Software In Ohio

Have you ever asked yourself if there is any accounting software that can handle job costing and invoicing for my construction business? This is a common question that we hear at Foundation Software. We know Ohio contractors need construction accounting software that excels at tracking labor, materials, and overhead costs for construction projects, which is important because the Ohio construction industry is set for major growth.

For example, Intel is investing $20 billion for two semiconductor plants in Licking County, and the Ohio Department of Transportation is spending $2.8 billion on over 900 infrastructure projects. Ohio contractors need software to help them handle large projects like these.


The challenge is that many construction professionals struggle with unpredictable costs, while other contractors lose sleep over the financial health of each project. Some professionals in the construction industry still rely on spreadsheets or generic accounting tools that weren't designed to handle the complexities of construction projects.

But there's a better way. Trusted by thousands of contractors nationwide, FOUNDATION® is the all-in-one construction accounting software designed to help crews in Ohio and beyond transform their finances and operations.

Our accounting software was developed by industry veterans who know the unique challenges faced by contractors in the field.

FOUNDATION is built to handle overhead costs for projects of any size: giving you the insights, efficiency, and control to build a stronger, more profitable construction business in Ohio.


The Growing Ohio Construction Industry

Over the next few years, Ohio will be home to major construction projects that contractors can take advantage of.

First off, Ohio has seen unprecedented growth in the construction of data centers. Major companies like Amazon Web Services, Google, and Facebook are investing billions of dollars for campuses of new data centers. Amazon is investing $3.5 billion to build more 5 data centers in New Albany, a suburb just outside of Columbus. This is the first part of a $7.8 billion plan to build over twenty-four data centers in Ohio.

In addition to the AWS data centers, Google is investing $1.7 billion to expand three data centers also located in New Albany.

However, data centers are not the only major construction projects that contractors can look forward to. Cleveland is set to begin a $250 million Innerbelt Modernization Plan that will improve interstates 71, 77, and 90. This project looks to include heavy highway construction as portions of  I-71, the Innerbelt Trench, Central Interchange, and the Innerbelt Curve will be reconstructed.

With large projects like this, contractors need a construction management software solution to ensure projects are running on schedule and within budget.
