Timely and accurate job costing is critical to your construction projects’ success.

With Spectrum, you’ll easily stay on top of work in progress, earned revenue, cost to complete, committed costs, change orders and much more—all in real time, as work is taking place. Spectrum provides everything you need for complete job costing, on all your jobs, all of the time.
Over the past few months, I have had some frustrating experiences surrounding goods and services, or rather, the lack of goods and satisfactory service. Here are a few examples:
When working on a home improvement project, I visited one of the big box home improvement chain stores with a list of items I needed—only to find out that the store was out of stock on half of the goods on my list. I had to drive to another branch, where it too lacked what I needed. Even a visit to a competing chain netted zero results. So my home improvement project remains on the sidelines.
Job Compliance Tracking is a powerful new Spectrum tool to digitally manage all of your project’s compliance documents. Alerts and automatic workflows ensure compliance documents are always up to date and that work being done is in full compliance of laws, regulations, and contractual agreements.
“A huge benefit for us is the cloud-based (platform). Our project manager can write the purchase order on site, logged in through his tablet or through his laptop. That disconnect from office to field has been bridged with Spectrum.”
Dallas Williams General Manager, Red Deer Office Scott Builders, Inc. Red Deer, Alberta, Canada
“What we need right now is simple technology, user-friendly technology…and that’s why we went with Dexter + Chaney.”

Dori Seegar Accounting Manager Yale Mechanical Minneapolis, Minnesota
“Spectrum gives me the tools I need to query the database and access virtually any piece of data I need to build a report. Whether they’re pre-built or customized, Spectrum’s reporting capabilities really allow us to get as deep into the data as we want.”
