This company is one of the largest heavy highway contractors for the state of Georgia. Their legacy accounting software was as UNIX-based application called COINS.
This client's system was COINS (Unix) and StarBuilder (Microsoft SQL) In addition, they acquired another company in the previous year which was running StarBuilder formerly GEAC in a Windows environment.
Our objective was to convert both systems into one company in the Viewpoint Construction Software. Migrating from one system to another is challenging, however migrating from two different systems into one is more challenging.
AITS developed scripts to merge the all of vendors, customers, chart of accounts, jobs, equipment, materials, human resource records, employees and their deductions, subcontracts and purchase orders. The detail transactions for some of the larger vendors and customers were consolidated into one account. All of the historical data for the jobs, general ledger, account receivables and payables dating back to the mid 1980’s was converted since the old servers were off maintenance.
With all of the challenges of merging two separate systems into Viewpoint Construction Software, the system went live on time and it reconciled to the penny.
