How Construction Project Managers and Bookkeepers are Saving Time and Money with "the Cloud"
 February 18, 2016 How Construction Project Managers and Bookkeepers are Saving Time and Money with "the Cloud" The construction industry is constantly changing due to regulations, labor requirements, insurance requirements, and competition. With so many parts in flux, it can be daunting to stay on top of estimates, permits, labor, sub-contractors, payroll and accounting details. Fortunately, the cloud is making those tasks easier.   More than ever, construction managers use apps for accurate labor management, estimating, and project management. With great data, project managers and bookkeeping teams can work closely together to maintain profitability and positive cash flow from the job site to the office.   "Due to increased labor costs alone, the construction industry needs to realize that if you're trying to manage a project with pen and pencil, or even Microsoft Excel, the room for error is enormous," says Ian Grimbleby, Partner and Construction Team lead. "They can quickly throw an entire budget."One of our clients, CDC Construction, has adopted a mobile friendly strategy to manage time card processing using Edifica, a cloud-based project management software tool. Owner Seth Cheek mentions, "I am always thinking about how we can make the business more efficient and productive. Our industry is moving towards being more mobile, and we are too. With a little time and consistency, mobile management will become second nature, just like wearing a hard hat!" Construction team-members Ian Grimbleby, Adriane Reams and Javier Padilla (L-R) Edifica is just one of many cloud management and accounting software programs. Please give our Construction team a call for help determining which cloud tool is best for your company.   Please keep in mind that our Cloud Accounting Team is always here to help you with your accounting and financial management needs, including transferring your Excel files or desktop Quickbooks to Quickbooks Online.

Featured Staff

Carmen joined the Grimbleby Coleman team in 2015, bringing with her skills in accounting, tax preparation, and knowledge of the construction and hospitality industries. In her current role, Carmen assists clients with financial preparation and analysis, payroll, and bank statements. She is a graduate of Humphrey's College, holding a Bachelor of Science in Accounting and Business Management. Additionally, Carmen has been a licensed California Tax Education Council (CTEC) Tax Preparer since 2007. 

Carmen's favorite part of working with clients is alleviating their stress and putting smiles on their faces. Perhaps that gets her through the months of January, February, March, and April, when she's working extra hours for tax season. In the summer months, you'll likely find Carmen in Santa Cruz or Monterey with her three children, two boys and one girl, and her husband and best friend, Gilbert. In fall and winter, she's back home for football, the kids' sports, and school activities. 

Carmen also stays busy with hiking, bike riding, shooting, sight seeing... "anything that's outdoors!" 

When asked about her favorite number, Carmen replied, "I like them all". What good accountant wouldn't?
