MYOB Advanced Construction for General Contractors

A cloud platform for construction gives general contractors access to business-critical information anytime, anywhere. Achieve greater success by connecting your people and projects and streamlining your processes.

Construction projects are a sea of moving parts. As a general contractor, your ability to complete projects on time and on budget depends entirely on the level of collaboration between your central office and your field staff.

Whether you self-perform or manage sub-contractors, you need access to accurate, timely project data so that you can make the strategic decisions that will move projects – and your business – forward. Unfortunately, running a business with disconnected project teams results in delayed project updates, duplicate data entry, greater risk of errors, and unnecessary costs.

With MYOB Advanced Construction Edition, you can easily manage your customers, finances – including job cost accounting – and field teams in one cohesive platform. The bottom line is that you’ll increase your visibility, team collaboration, and profitability on every project.
