    I am interested in connecting with some users of Foundation regarding job costing and inventory. We do site work and heavy highway but at the same time are manufacturing our aggregate materials and hot top. I am looking to get a better handle on the costs of manuafacturing various aggregate materials and am wondering what others are doing in Foundation to get accurate figures. Foundation doesn't have specific manufacturing costing set up but maybe someone has come up with a way around this? Feel free to email me directly or respond to this post. Thank you!

    ​We use Foundation as well.  It is a pretty good program though it does have some quirks and I have found it difficult to create reports.  I am "self" taught on the program and I would really like to go to one of their conferences.  I'm sure I would learn a lot more on what the program is cable of.  We use the inventory module and that really works well for us.

    We are a specialty subcontract and use Foundation but not the inventory module.  I would be interested in sharing tips, tricks and information on  Foundation.

    Thanks, Samantha!

    That's such a good question! Foundation does have clients that use the software to track and cost their aggregate manufacturing. Whenever you're ready, please feel welcome to reach out to us, and we'll be happy to walk you through what this can look like in the system and connect you with some heavy/highway reference clients.

    All best!
