I don't know why I waited so long to get help from a construction accounting expert!

This {class} is exactly what our company needed to be able to move forward.  I now have confidence that we can make QuickBooks desktop work for our construction company. We thought we were going to have to add or create expensive software to get the information we needed.  Turns out, we just needed to set up QuickBooks so that it will work for construction.

Hi, We're Melissa and Shane!

We are accountants that used to be construction business owners that now help construction contractors with accounting.

After 15 years of doing construction accounting and running a construction contractor,  we saw the need for good financial data within the industry and started Atlas CFO to help construction business owners with financial information.

It wasn't long before we discovered a love for training others in this field and leaning into the software that runs it.

Now, we work with construction business owners and their in-house accountants around the world to take control of their financial future with training, coaching and our proprietary financial forecasting software, the Atlas Growth Model.

This is for you if...

>>   You are a construction contractor.

 >>  You are using QuickBooks Desktop as your accounting software.

>> You are ready to be the boss of your QuickBooks and create a job costing system that works for you and your team.

>> You work in QuickBooks everyday or are the owner of the company and want this as a resource for your in-house staff.

>> You are ready to do the work and engage with the operations team to create a QB set-up that is beneficial to the owner, estimating and operations.

This is not  for you if...

>>   Aren't currently using QuickBooks Desktop.  QuickBooks Online is a different software package.

>>  You are an outside accountant or bookkeeper that is providing services to construction companies.  You must be deeply involved in the company to set up QB for best practice.

>>  Your construction company is over $20M in revenue. (send us an email and we'll explain)

>> You don't want to take responsibility for your QB Desktop software and do the work involved to get it set-up properly.


Are you ready to be the boss of your QuickBooks?

I'm ready!



Here's the truth. I didn't want to learn how to use QuickBooks.

I've had some very frustrating days working with clients that used QuickBooks.  I struggled with the limitations (mostly in my head!) and even thought that the only solution was to tell our clients to change software.

Once I decided that QB would not beat me, I started to get somewhere.  Now I feel like any software can work for construction companies as long as you MAKE it be construction accounting software.

You can do this too!  Be the boss of QuickBooks!.
