Founded in 1990, Jonas Software is a fully integrated construction management system that offers a wide range of applications, including accounting, bid management, project management, service management and customer management. It is a division of Constellation Software, Inc., a publicly traded international provider of software and services to industries in both the public and private sectors; Constellation Software is headquartered in Toronto, Canada, and offices in North America, Europe and Australia.
Jonas serves the needs of general contractors and specialty trades, but their true sweet spot is service-oriented companies, such as commercial mechanical contractors, with $5M+ in revenues. This solution’s strong points are its job accounting, service, equipment and inventory applications. Jonas runs on a proprietary database, Providex, but has an ODBC connection to SQL.
In 2012, Jonas introduced a browser-based, SaaS solution that runs in the cloud called Jonas Premier.
The software is considered to be one of the construction industry’s mobile computing leaders. The company offers mobile applications that can be used in the field with either Tablets or PCs, such as an application to capture service billing and work order details. The current version of Jonas sports a much-improved query and custom reporting engine, which is a capability that many middle market construction software systems lack.
