BEAVERTON, OR--(Marketwire - February 22, 2011) - Sage North America, a provider of business management software and services to more than three million small and midsized businesses in Canada and the United States, today announced that Stellos Electric, based in Nashua, New Hampshire, has selected Sage Master Builder as its construction software solution. 

Sage Master Builder is a construction-specific business management system that makes it easy to track and manage every aspect of a job, such as producing accurate estimates, and provides quick access to all key financial data, plus tools for managing vendors and subcontractors, monitoring cash flow and job costs, and tracking equipment and inventory.

Stellos Electric was struggling with the multiple software programs they were using to maintain their business operations. They had several different programs in place to schedule jobs, obtain job and work order information, and manage their financial performance. Alyson Stellos, Accounting and Human Resources Manager for Stellos Electric, knew she had to improve the company's overall efficiency in order to remain profitable in today's marketplace. 

"We needed a better way to track information and assist the accounting department to share information with estimators and job supervisors," says Alyson Stellos. "We were using spreadsheets to create and manage many of the documents we needed, but that only created more systems that we needed to maintain."

Once Stellos implemented Sage Master Builder, she had a comprehensive estimating, job costing and accounting solution that could be relied on for accurate estimates analysis of each job's profitability. Sage Master Builder's Executive Dashboard tool helped Stellos to easily view each facet of the business and determine where changes needed to be made to provide greater efficiency across all internal departments. 

"The return on investment from Sage Master Builder comes in many ways. We've been able to put additional monies into sales and service, by saving time in the accounting department," said Stellos. "We haven't had any down time trying to figure out costing or how our production is doing in the field because we now have really easy access to all the information."
