The BEAMS system has everything that is required to transform the average construction company into a professional systemised business.
As a Design and Build construction business specialising in Home Extensions Melbourne, we had a lot of difficulty trying to find software that had all the features needed to run and grow our business efficiently. Our business trialled countless amounts of software trying to find a system that took care of everything involved in running a construction business but they all seemed to be lacking part of the construction process. This meant we had to use several bits of software and ultimately resulted in our business running inefficiently.
BEAMS however, has taken everything into consideration – everything is accounted for in one easy to access location.
Their support crew is extremely skilled and helpful which made the entire implementation process incredibly quick and easy.
I would highly recommend BEAMS to any builder who wishes to run a successful business.

Several years ago we realised that our business was growing faster than we could keep up with and that we needed more than a “run of the mill accounting program” we needed a program that enveloped our business activities as a whole, a central location for estimate job costings, project notes, accounting and more. We started exploring the options of having software customized to suit our business, until we discovered that BEAMS already existed had all functionality that we were searching for. The BEAMS team made what we thought was going to be a difficult transition process very simple with their technical support.
Since then our business has continued to expand, and BEAMS continues to meet all our requirements, furthermore they listen to our business needs and adjust the software to suit in their regular updates.
Any builder looking to take their business to the next level, can benefit from having BEAMS along for the ride.

BEAMS is simply outstanding – it integrates most of the construction business processes and it will grow with the business. The package is suitable for start-up builders through to large enterprises. I was able to readily establish separate estimating and job profiles for the different elements of the company. The company was able to quickly transition to a single platform integrating and managing most aspects of the business. The flexibility of the program supports all types and levels of estimation – single trade through to large multi-discipline projects. Once the fundamentals are understood complex time saving prescriptions can be readily built to support the way you estimate.
The support to integrate the program is first rate. The setup is done remotely, the one on one training is catered to the user’s needs and the tech support is timely and thorough. I have no hesitation in recommending BEAMS to builders or building trades; it is an investment in the business and its productivity.

Overall the system is the best and most versatile that I have seen and used.

It has streamlined project processes by having the estimating, contract management and finance modules in the 1 system. These were previously separate systems leading to double entries and things getting missed.

We started using BEAMS approximately 15 years ago after several months looking at different packages and instantly found BEAMS easy to pick up & learn. The set out is very well organised in the way it follows a path very similar to how you would estimate, then contract and administer a project, our accountant has also stated it is one of the best building software packages that he has seen in regards to accounts side of things. One aspect I have been most impressed with is the backup service we receive while BEAMS is based in Perth the help provided is excellent a credit to Peter and Lynda Fonte. I would have no hesitation in recommending BEAMS to another builder.

We have used BEAMS for over 15 years, since the introduction of GST in 2000. The system is very user friendly, however technical support is readily available if required. BEAMS assists us with the management and accounting of multiple building projects as well as payroll for our staff, trades and suppliers. We are happy to recommend BEAMS.
Addstyle Constructions Pty Ltd (WA)
When I first started my Building Company in 1999 my estimates and purchase orders were hand written, on my first ever building contract I had no idea how I was going to keep track of accounts, progress claims and job tracking. That is when I realised that I required an integrated computer program that could help me run my business to reflect the current times.
The crew at BEAMS helped me with the setup of the program and gave me ongoing support to make the transition into BEAMS as easy as it could be. When the GST came into effect they virtually rewrote the accounts module of the program & came into my office and unloaded all my data and reloaded it with the new GST program at no extra cost.
Having an extensive building background they understand your concerns and how to direct with most problems as they have encountered it themselves. BEAMS helps my business look professional with well set out Purchase Order and invoice formats including company logo which helps us run professionally in the office saving us time and money.
I would recommend BEAMS to any Builder who wants to run a successful business with a program that works.

BEAMS had been an essential cornerstone in the development and operations of our business over the past four years. I would highly recommend BEAMS to anyone in the building industry.

My company Base Plumbing has been using BEAMS for 9 years. After using BEAMS for only a short period I discovered it to be an extremely user friendly database application that has assisted the company to implement more efficient turn around times, which has enabled the company to save time and costs.
The database that BEAMS designed for my company is plumbing based rather that building based, proving its flexibility. Due to this I found the BEAMS support team was very helpful in setting up our database. Training is always available along with the online & telephone support team.
I truly believe that BEAMS can be adapted to suit any businesses. I therefore have no hesitation in recommending BEAMS to any other business owner who is looking to introduce more efficient turn around times thus saving the company money.

We have been with BEAMS now for the past 15 years, we can’t express how helpful the program has been over those years, at one stage we were so busy that we really don’t know what we would have done without the BEAMS support staff. Right from contracts, the claiming of progress claims, the itemising of materials & Business Activity Statements everything is done for you. I myself had never used a computer until using BEAMS in 2000 & it was a breeze.
Would I recommend Beams, I most definitely would.

As the manager of a small building company, I am always looking for ways to maximise the efficiency of day to day operations, due to the large variety of roles that need to be done. I was informed about BEAMS form a friend who runs a large building company, who insisted it makes their operations far more efficient and easier to access information when required. Initially I thought it might not be relevant to a small company like me, but after meeting with the team and seeing a live demonstration, I could see many benefits of applying the BEAMS system to my business.
I have found the program to be fantastic, when quoting jobs, it is far more accurate than the old fashioned way I used to take off measurements, as well as being a lot faster. The template for each job can be tailored to suit any job type or size, which suits my business as every job is completely different. I run my jobs through the program now and find it so much easier to keep track of where the costs for items are going. Not only is it easier and more accurate, it has saved me countless hours working through receipts trying to remember what was for where.
The training for the BEAMS is the most important part. Angelo has been integral in me being able to use the program. I personally am very limited with my computer knowledge and thought this would be a problem using BEAMS. Whilst it has taken me longer than most to navigate my way around, Angelo has been fantastic in keeping things simple for me to understand, as well as teaching me how to use the program. His patience and knowledge is to commended and I can highly recommend his training when first starting out with BEAMS.
I would have no hesitation in recommending BEAMS to other builders and have already done so. It is a great program with excellent training and support.

When our business reached a point that spreadsheets and paper documents were creating too many inefficiencies in the process, we researched many Construction Software packages to understand how it could benefit our team and the overall process. Beams Build was the only system we came across which combined all the phases of the process into one streamlined package.
Too many programs were either an estimating program, project management software or an accounting program. But they all required to sync to each other. Beams allows us to manage Accounts, Estimating and Project management under the one umbrella. This enables our staff to reference “one source of the truth” and all information is accessed by all relevant users as it becomes “Live”. Beams Mobile also allows on site staff to view and access the same information from their remote devices, which means they are able to save time and ensure accuracy of information from the office to the site.
The staff at Beams are always on hand to provide support and resolve any issues with the software, and are always willing to take on-board any feedback.
If you are looking for a Construction Software Package that covers all phases of your process, then Beams Build will do the trick!
