Client Details

Since 1947, J.F. Cook Company, Inc. (J.F. Cook) has been selling, installing, and servicing quality overhead doors and windows throughout the greater Milwaukee region. The company has divisions serving commercial/residential contractors as well as residential home owners, and it requires a flexible business management solution that can adapt to the way it does business. For J.F. Cook, that solution is Sage 100 Contractor (formerly Sage Master Builder).

"We are using nearly every aspect of Sage 100 Contractor and we love it," said Benjamin Engel, Owner and President, J.F. Cook Company, Inc.

The Challenge

J.F. Cook Company was using the job costing and accounting functionality of Sage 100 Contractor for years, but other areas of the organization were not benefiting from automation and integrated operations.

Accounting staff size reduced due to higher efficiency. More accurate service contract management improves customer service. Accurate job cost data helps ensure profitability. Integration with payroll service provider and tax filing service reduces burden on staff and ensures compliance.
