• ANDRES Experiences Long-Term Success Utilizing GCPay

    The Challenge

    Before getting started with GCPay, the ANDRES Construction team processed each application for payment manually.

    The pay app had to be compared to the commitment data in Sage 300 CRE manually, then the team would input the information in the payment application by hand. The process was painstaking and slow. They also often experienced issues where the subcontract amounts would be inconsistent, whether transposed from last month or billing against unapproved change orders.

    Lien waivers presented another problem. The ANDRES team estimates that lien waivers were returned with incorrect data 85% of the time with their old process.

    Decision Making

    The ANDRES team is always looking to be more efficient. They knew their slow payment application processing was not ideal and were thrilled when they were introduced to the GCPay solution. The ease of processing pay apps and matching data within Sage 300 CRE is what ultimately convinced them to sign on with the platform. 

    The onboarding process was simple for ANDRES. Plus, Warren comments, “the subcontractors caught on quick and liked the ease of GCPay” versus other pay app software they had researched or used previously. They quickly adopted GCPay across all their projects.

    Solutions & Results

    Since bringing on GCPay, the ANDRES accounting team is much happier. They are saving valuable time by managing less physical paperwork and speeding up their processing time. Plus, they love that their subcontractors enjoy using GCPay as well. 

    The ANDRES team has also been impressed with the GCPay integration with Sage 300 CRE, their ERP system. They no longer have to spend time manually checking contract amounts, previously billed amounts, or retainage because the integration ensures this data is always correct. They also don’t have to enter the payment amount into Sage 300 CRE by hand since it’s already updated. 

    “With GCPay, it just takes one click for all our pay requests to be processed.” It doesn’t get much faster than that! The accounting team has also come to rely on the lien waiver functionality with GCPay. The ability to have all lien waivers downloaded and uploaded within GCPay with all the correct information has helped them save time and reduce risk. They no longer have to send documents back and forth to be manually updated.
