Our add-on bookkeeping services for construction include Apparatus Project Management Software Support which ensures that your BuilderTrend®, CoConstruct®, ServiceFusion® or other construction-centered project management system communicates continuously and accurately with your Apparatus QuickBooks® Online bookkeeping system.
We do the extra work to establish and maintain the “handshake” between your project management system and the bookkeeping system we maintain on your behalf so you get the power of a construction project management toolset and the bookkeeping accuracy you need.
Our fee for Project Management Software Support is $200.00 per month, regardless of the brand of construction project management system you employ. This fee is the same for our Start!, Grow!, and Scale! clients.
This service is required if you plan to use a construction project management system in conjunction with your Apparatus bookkeeping service.
This service is best for contracting companies that need the power of a construction project management platform and want this system to communicate directly with their Apparatus-maintained QuickBooks® Online bookkeeping toolset.
“Apparatus was such a key player in going from $750,000 to $1.5m…I don’t know if there is any better system.”

For contracting businesses that need very detailed reporting of where labor, materials, subcontractor, and equipment costs are accumulating, we offer Apparatus Microscope™. With Apparatus Microscope™ you’ll have cost tracking at a deep level – with labor, material, subcontractor, and equipment cost tracking not just by project, but at the task level.
Need to know how much labor, material, subcontractor, and equipment charges were spent for a given project in the framing phase, or the insulation phase, or the electrical rough-in phase? You’ll want to add Apparatus Microscope™ to your monthly Operations Advantage Program™ service subscription.
Our fee for the optional Apparatus Microscope™ service is $200.00 per month for Start! clients, $400.00 per month for Grow! clients, and $600.00 per month for Scale! clients.
