IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - Dec 20, 2012) - Sage North America today announced that Smith Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc., a full-service mechanical contractor specializing in the design, sales, installation, and service of Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning ( HVAC ), and refrigeration systems, uses award-winning Sage 100 Contractor to increase productivity and grow its business.

A Sage customer since 1998, Smith Heating and Air Conditioning first implemented Sage 100 Contractor (formerly Sage Master Builder) as a way to streamline accounting tasks. Over the years, the company has benefited from the product's evolution. The solution has become its complete business management system, helping with contracts, project management, engineering, estimating, service management and day-to-day operations.

"Smith Heating and Air Conditioning has stayed with Sage 100 Contractor throughout the years as the company grew for one simple reason: It works," says Matthew Smith, president of Smith Heating and Air Conditioning. "Sage 100 Contractor has had a significant impact on our bottom line. It helps us to be more productive, more efficient, and more responsive to our customers. It has helped us grow our business."

Integration between Sage 100 Contractor and Sage Estimating has further streamlined processes and simplified the company's procedure for creating new project estimates, takeoffs, and templates. The business management solution also eliminates duplicate data entry, as the service management component is integrated with the accounting and operations components. This allows the company to track the inventory, materials, and equipment used on every service call and monitor its technicians' hours.

"Sage 100 Contractor helps us run as efficiently as possible, maximizing the hours in each day," said Smith. "We're able to complete more service calls and help more customers due to the efficiencies afforded by the software."
