We are a construction company currently using Peachtree Classic.

We use Job Cost extensively and would like to know the pros and cons of using Peachtree Complete Accounting in lieu of Peachtree Classic.

I used the DOS version for 13 years to run a contracting business, and recently switched to Complete version 8.02. As you know, the job cost program that you currently use (Classic) allows you to add markups to labor and material. The Windows complete version does not. You also cannot enter a miscellaneous cost without creating a general ledger entry. So, in the Windows version what the job cost report shows for actual labor costs are your base hourly payroll costs with no way to add fringe benefits, etc. or an adder to the material costs. I'm in the process of contracting someone to create a Crystal Report to provide the ability to mark up the costs; I haven't been told if it's even possible yet.
