Key Modules of Acumatica Construction Edition
General contractors, commercial real estate developers, owner/operators and subcontractors are on the road every day–keeping their projects and businesses on schedule and on budget. It’s the key to making money on commercial construction projects. Acumatica Construction Edition keeps your team on the same page, relying on a core system that has the latest project reports, contracts, budgets, plans, specifications, change orders, invoices, purchase orders and job costs. The platform includes the Acumatica Financial Management Suite, which includes a core set of financial modules used by almost every business.
For owner/operators, the construction management system is fully integrated with Imperium, our property management suite.
The financial management suite is a secure, SaaS solution with reporting, dashboards, and data analytics available on phones, tablets, and PCs—anywhere, at any time.

The hub of Acumatica’s finance system, the General Ledger (GL) module is the central repository for collecting and analyzing your financial information. Dozens of pre-designed reports can be tailored for departmental or individual use through filtering and sorting options at runtime. GL data can also be presented in dashboards or viewed online via inquiry screens. Entries can be made directly into the GL or they can be made from other Financial Suite applications and posted in detail or summary into the GL.
The Accounts Payable (AP) module allows companies to efficiently manage liabilities for purchased or received goods and services. This module accumulates, stores, and organizes vendor information and documents to automate the payment process. Transactions can be entered quickly and accurately with automatic population of default vendor information and accounts, automated calculation of taxes, flexible payment schedules, cash discounts, and more. Comprehensive reports and inquiry screens provide a complete overview of current AP state and analysis of historical vendor performance.
The Accounts Receivable (AR) module allows companies to manage receivables and automate the tasks of invoicing customers and collecting payments. There are several time-saving features such as defaulting of customer information on entry, automatic tax computation, commission calculation, discounts, and due dates calculation. Report and inquiry screens allow you to monitor customer balances, credit limits, pending documents, check aging buckets, and view other customer-related information.
Fixed Assets Management*
The Fixed Assets Management (FA) module provides complete visibility into your assets and depreciation calculations. You can add fixed assets directly from AP purchases, import them from a file, or add them individually. Select from a huge number of pre-defined depreciation schedules or create custom schedules for accurate accounting and reporting. Utilize special books to track tax and reporting scenarios separately from your general ledger accounts.
The Cash Management (CA) module provides functionality required for managing day to day operations related to cash transactions, cash balances, funds transfer, and bank account reconciliation. The Cash Management module is integrated with the General Ledger, Accounts Payable, and Accounts Receivable modules to centralize all cash management functions such as bank reconciliation, daily cash balances, and cash management reporting.
Cash Basis Reporting*
Cash Basis accounting recognizes revenue in the period in which the cash was received and recognizes expenses in the period in which cash was disbursed.
Accrual Basis accounting recognizes revenue in the period in which it was earned and recognizes expenses in the period in which they were incurred.
Imperium Cash Basis Reporting for Acumatica provides that flexibility. Maintain an Accrual Ledger and a Cash Ledger to easily run Income Statements & Balance Sheet reports on either basis.
The (EP) module allows companies to automate the process of entering timesheets, submitted expense claims, and assigning work. The EP module works with Accounts Payable for expense payments to employees and with Accounts Receivable for time and expense billing to clients. Centralized task management allows everybody in your organization to create, assign, and manage tasks within the guidelines of your business policies.
Inter-Company Accounting automates financial reporting, payments, cash management, and inter-company transfers across multiple related companies. The features are integrated with other Acumatica modules so you can manage inter-company payments in AP, centralize invoicing in AR, create inter-company journal transactions in the GL, manage inter-company goods transfers in inventory management, setup company-specific cash accounts in cash management, and more.
The Currency Management (CM) module provides functionality to support multiple currencies so you can do business internationally and manage international subsidiaries. The CM module maintains a list of currencies, tracks exchange rate fluctuations, and performs periodical revaluations for currency denominated accounts and documents in foreign currencies with automatic calculation of gains and losses. Flexible translation options allow you to configure reporting in a foreign currency if needed and automatically performs currency translations.
* Please note that modules marked with * are sold separately.
The financial management features shown above are the core Acumatica ERP System, which is also part of Imperium for owner/operators and property managers.
IBS can help you select and deploy the modules that are necessary for your business, without overwhelming your team with unnecessary features. As your business grows and becomes more complex, we can add modules and support to deliver the business insights you need to improve overall efficiency and maximize profits. We can also develop custom dashboards and workflows to help you optimize your business.
For developers who also own/operate their own and/or other properties, the Project Management features on the right are also included in the Acumatica Construction Edition. Imperium integrates seamlessly with either Acumatica version, depending on your needs.

Use the standard workflow or create custom workflows for large projects, including estimating, scheduling, and approvals with electronic signatures.
Budgets directly link to contracts, accounting, and the project plan for managing hard and soft costs, change orders, profits, overheads, and fees in real time.
Links between contract details and sub-jobs in the project plan include all addenda and change orders.
Subcontractors stay current on project needs from bidding through payment, including flexible retainage options.
For both accounts receivable and payable, manage initial retainage and any changes to streamline invoicing and payments. Retainage tracking is supported for progress billing and time and material billing of projects. Plus, project cost commitments are calculated with respect to retainage in purchase orders. (Click the image below for a larger retainage example.)
Control changes of the project budgeted and committed values and control the profitability of every change initiated by a customer. The change order is a document for profitability analysis and an audit trail of changes to the project revenue budget, commitments, and budgeted costs.

Subcontracts and purchase orders are immediately updated from accounts payable, including comparing budgets with actual and standard costs based on sub jobs and industry standard cost codes.
Enhanced costing tracks codes, types, and sub-jobs to keep project management and accounting in sync on actual and standard costs.
Purchase requisitions, contracts and inventory control integrate with subcontracts to simplify project and joint check management.
