Spohn Associates

Helping a Specialty Contractor Execute Their Digital Transformation Strategy with Acumatica Construction Edition

Founded as a manufacturer’s representative, Spohn Associates evolved into a
full-service architectural installation company offering ornamental metal railings, canopies, walkways, shelters and architectural wall panel systems. The company ran on a legacy Sage system for more than 20 years and later added a custom reporting database that grew so big it often crashed. Spohn deployed Acumatica Construction Edition, gaining a single connected construction and accounting solution with numerous efficiencies to help projects remain on time.

Acumatica Construction Edition had everything we were looking for. We are different from a regular construction contractor and liked that we could add our own specialty fields and customize it to the way we do business.”

Sean Barnett, Chief Financial Officer

Safety Management Group of Indiana Inc. provides safety consulting services to the construction, automotive, utility and healthcare industries.
