Construction company based in Southern California chooses CFO on the go on, the nation’s largest Sage Master Builder VAR, to replace QuickBooks for better project management, reporting, and job costing.
Sept. 7, 2010 - PRLog -- Temecula, California – Chief Financial Officer on the go ( has announced the successful implementation of Sage Master Builder for Essrig Taylor Construction (ETC). Based in Southern California, ETC ( specializes in the design and construction of health care and life science facilities.  After riding a wave of success in the wake of mandated seismic retrofitting of hospitals in California, ETC decided it was time to replace their QuickBooks accounting software with Sage Master Builder.

“The challenges we were experiencing with QuickBooks were numerous,” says Rick Strickland, Controller at ETC. “Everything from frequent inaccuracies and software glitches to job cost numbers inexplicably assigned to the wrong jobs.”  After extensive research and recommendations by colleagues, Rick says, “All roads pointed back to Sage Master Builder.” (

That’s when Rick discovered CFO on the go (, the largest reseller of Sage Master Builder in the nation with over 21 Sage Certified Consultants and 1,300 customers.  Leveraging years of experience with construction businesses throughout California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico and Colorado, CFO on the go was able to get Sage Master Builder up and running in record time.  Rick says, “They moved all of our historical data over from QuickBooks without any manual data entry, got everyone trained, and had us fully functional on the core accounting functions in just 11 days.”

Rick notes that Sage Master Builder has made a tremendous difference at ETC saying, “Reports that took almost a full day to produce in QuickBooks now take literally five minutes using Sage Master Builder.  The reporting features alone will pay for the software in about a year.”

Rick has also discovered that month-end closing is much improved stating, “Pam at CFO on the go helped us automate a couple of journal entries that, in the past, required major number crunching in Excel.  In fact when you add it up, I can close the books in half the time it took with QuickBooks.”

“While Sage Master Builder has been a great product, CFO on the go has been a phenomenal technology partner,” Rick adds.  “The willingness to roll up their sleeves and get hands-on with our team has made all the difference in the world.”
