Trocon is a valley-wide commercial and
residential concrete contractor. In its 22 years of
business, Trocon has evolved from a very small concrete
contracting company to a medium sized company with over 60
employees. Trocon prides itself on providing exceptional
quality services to its customers on projects ranging from a few
thousand dollars to a few hundred thousand dollars in size.
The company continues today as a partner/family owned and run
Remaining competitive and
profitable in the construction industry has required an increased
and timely awareness of the financial condition of the
company. Prior to the implementation of Sage MAS90, Trocon had
been employing the services of an outside accounting firm to
generate quarterly financial reports from which management made
strategic operating decisions. Frustrated with the
infrequent and often late access to this information, Trocon
turned to AAIS for a solution.
Trocon had a few years earlier designed and created a custom
Microsoft Access database system to handle processes such as estimating, job costing, job
tracking and invoicing. Because the application was tailored
to their specific business logic and had become an integral part
of their operation, the solution would require a coexistence and
partnership between the existing system and any new application.
The solution was to
carefully implement and integrate an accounting software system
that could be maintained internally, to ensure timely financial
reporting to management, and that would compliment the existing
application. Sage Software's Sage MAS90 provided just that
Trocon began its planning with the help of AAIS to target
a date of implementation, plan out opportunities for
training, and design the integration between the
existing system and the soon to be implemented Sage MAS
90. The Sage MAS90 modules in use are General Ledger, Accounts Payable, Accounts
Receivable, Payroll and Visual Integrator.
The integration between Sage MAS90 and the existing job cost
database was achieved at key points such as payroll
entry/job cost and invoicing/accounts receivable.
The integration not only functioned as hoped but also
created a level of synergy by improving the capabilities
of both systems.
Since implementation, Trocon has enjoyed the capability of
getting financial reports on demand and in turn using this
to improve strategic decision making and profitability
company wide. AAIS is proud to have been a part of
this successful solution.
