“Berkeley Myles spent a lot of time listening to our needs and understanding our business.”
Why did the company choose ProgressPlus?
ProgressPlus combined estimating with shop, inventory control, invoicing and costing and was able to handle time and attendance recording combined with direct input for job sheets and was also very easy to use. The company was also impressed by the overall approach taken by Berkeley Myles Solutions.
