C U S T O M E R P R O F I L E | +1 800.333.3197 Established in 1999, 2K General Company, Inc. is one of the leading general building construction firms in central Ohio and provides preconstruction, construction management, and design-build services. The company's growing project portfolio consists of quality building and renovation projects in many key sectors of the construction industry, including commercial, retail, and masonry, as well as public works, which since its founding is the majority of the work they do. The contractor has grown steadily over 15 years and now employs 30 field employees and 11 office employees, producing $14.5 million in annual revenue. There was a problem encountered with that growth, however, according to Clayton Morgan, CFO at 2K General, who explains: "As we grew to work on multimillion dollar projects with 200 change orders, our system that included using Quick- Books simply couldn't handle it. Nothing in that software could handle our project management requirements, so we were juggling additional spreadsheets and paper to manage projects. It wasn't efficient. It was impossible to properly build budgets. It was a nightmare to figure out work in progress and run reports. I'd spend hours to figure out if we were even making money on a job." CENTRALIZED SAVES TIME & MONEY Requiring a solution that integrated construction accounting and project management, 2K General implemented ProContractor by Viewpoint. ProContractor is comprehensive construction project management software, allowing construction businesses to streamline business processes in the office and in the field. With centralized, real-time project information, contractors have insight for informed decisions to efficiently bring in every project on schedule and within budget, while minimizing risk and improving control. "ProContractor is an ideal fit for handling our many change orders — the revenue side and expense side," says Morgan. He's right; project managers find it very easy to use this solution to efficiently identify change requests and track and manage pending, internal, and contract change orders. "With ProContractor, our project engineers can set up change order records and automatically update budgets," he explains. "It's great for checks and balances. Plus, WIPs are quick to pull together and it's easy to bill." 2K General Company, Inc.
