La Jolla, CA – March, 2015 – Plumb, Southern California’s premier outsourced accounting and software consultancy firm announces a new strategic hire within the construction software team. Julia Brandl, Construction Software Specialist, has extensive experience working in sales and the construction industry and helps to identify the right solution based on company size, industry and specific needs, including accounting, job costing, project management and estimating.

“The need for efficiency in reporting and technology is a construction industry trend that Plumb continues to be a top resource in Southern California,” said Robert Scherer, President of Plumb. “Julia is a great addition to the team.”

Brandl advises on accounting and estimating software solutions for a broad-range of companies in the building industry from general contractors to residential builders, sub-contractors and real estate developers.  She provides consultation for sales and implementation services for a number of products, including Sage 100 Contractor (Master Builder), Sage 300 Construction and Real Estate (Timberline), Sage Estimating and Contractor V.

As companies grow and accounting becomes more complex, they find value in construction-specific software with integrated job costing and reporting.  By providing detailed cost breakdowns for each job, it allows to better track actual costs of subs, labor and materials over the estimated costs.  This data highlights factors that can affect profitability by increasing sales volumes, reducing expenses and winning bids. The software also helps manage risks by tracking insurance certificates and creating auditable payroll reports for union and prevailing wage work.

Prior to joining Plumb, Brandl was an Associate District Manager at ADP.  She targeted local businesses for payroll services and HR solutions by networking and cross selling to an existing client base.  She was also the Office Manager for a high-end home remodeler outside Napa Valley, California. She graduated Cum Laude and earned Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in International Business from San Diego State University.
