Travelling the Road Ahead: A Guide for Construction Accountants Switching Construction Accounting Software

In construction accounting, staying ahead of the curve must involve embracing technological advancements. Whether you need to improve performance or replace software coming to the end of its life, switching to a new construction accounting software can be a sound strategic move.

Moving to the right software can streamline processes, enhance efficiency, and ensure compliance with the latest industry standards. However, this transition requires careful planning and execution to minimise disruptions to daily operations.

In this article, we will outline essential steps that construction accountants should take when switching to a new construction accounting software and how Integrity Software helps clients move to our dedicated construction accounting software, Evolution Mx.

Assessment of Current System

Before making the leap to a new accounting software, it is crucial to conduct a comprehensive assessment of your current system. Identify its strengths and weaknesses, and pinpoint areas where the existing software falls short. Understanding the specific pain points will help us meet the unique needs and challenges of your construction accounting processes.

Set Clear Objectives

Much like discovering pain points, establishing clear objectives for the switch is beneficial. Whether it's improving project cost tracking, enhancing reporting capabilities, or ensuring compatibility with other software tools, having a well-defined set of goals will guide the selection process for what you need and help evaluate the success of the transition.

Evolution Mx is modular software that is tailored for each business, and setting goals for your switch helps us evaluate the best solution for your needs.

Build the Right Software for You

Consider factors such as functionality, scalability, user-friendliness, integration capabilities, and our industry-specific features. When looking to switch over you can always engage with our team, arrange a free demo, or discover our webinars to gather information about what we offer. To see how others are benefitting from Mx, you can see our case studies and hear from other construction accounting professionals to make an informed decision.

Data Migration Planning

One of the most critical aspects of switching to a new accounting software is the migration of existing data. As part of the process we will help develop a comprehensive data migration plan that ensures the smooth transfer of financial data, project details, and other relevant information from the old system to the new one. We do this to help give you time to verify the accuracy of migrated data to prevent errors that could impact financial reporting.

Training and Skill Development

Our dedicated in-house Professional Services team will introduce training programs for accounting staff to familiarise them with the new software. Provide ample time for hands-on practice and address any concerns or questions they may have early. We help get you set up and started with Mx, because investing in training will empower your team to make the most of the new system and reduce the learning curve.

Post-Implementation Support

After the new software is implemented, we provide ongoing support to address any issues or challenges that may arise. Our team may also check in to help assess the system's performance and gather feedback from users to make continuous improvements. Whether you feel like you need more training or a new functionality, we will always be available to have a conversation about what’s best for you.


Switching to a new construction accounting software is a sound strategic move that requires careful planning and execution.
