Every building business needs a reliable building, estimation and management system, and BEAMS has been providing this to industry for almost three decades.
Established in 1994, BEAMS has enabled a greater understanding of what is required for the entire building process.
The system covers web leads in CRM, estimating with CADIMage, scheduling and accounts, as well as the addition of mobile functionality – a service the company says is not available through any other software system currently on the market.
According to owner, Peter Fonte, BEAMS is backed by an experienced and dedicated team who are constantly looking for ways to improve the package, which is in perpetual development as the market changes and users’ needs evolve. BEAMS, he says, offers the unparalleled knowledge and understanding of a builder-come-company director with years of practical, hands-on experience.
‘BEAMS software was developed by a builder who understands the wants and needs of users within the construction industry,’ says Peter.
‘BEAMS customer support is suited to both the east- and west-coast, with long support hours offered.’
Peter says BEAMS is currently the only software provider that integrates the functions of at least nine separate applications that are generally required to manage and operate a successful business. This includes word processing, document storage, estimating, scheduling, CAD Image Take-off, email monitoring, accounting, CRM, as well as Beams Mobile, to name a few.
‘Users are able to prepare quotes quickly and respond to their clients in a timely fashion,’ Peter adds. ‘We offer the ability to maintain accurate cost control which results in better profits.
‘BEAMS keeps up with legislation changes, including GST, TPar, Super Stream – and the newest one being Single Touch Payroll – and also provides full financial reporting, such as BAS and PAYG.’
