Q.
How long has Jaffe Software been in business?
A. Development for the Power! Estimator and T&M Billing software began in 1987. We proudly released our first version in 1991. For over 26 years now, we have served electrical contractors nationwide. We have software users in all fifty states, Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico and Bahamas.

 

Q. How do I keep the built-in prices up-to-date?
A. Very easily. We've built in a number of ways to keep up-to-date with electrical material pricing changes.
1) The built-in prices are easily changed individually or globally by a percentage. Consider that most electrical contractors only use 50 to 200 electrical items on a regular basis. So changing pricing manually is really very simple. A great source of current pricing, at your discount level is the invoices you receive from your electrical wholesaler. It's the most accurate source for items you use at the price you pay.
2) Our Power! Estimator software has a Quote Request feature to request pricing from your vendor.
3) Prices can easily be changed on the fly for just one estimate or invoice.
4) Prices can be updated from a computer file, if supplied by your electrical parts distributor.


Q.
Does the Power! Time and Material Billing™ software work with my accounting program?
A. Our billing software exports Accounts Receivable and Customer information to QuickBooks Pro® and Peachtree® accounting. You can also export to Microsoft Excel® or a word processor.


Q.
How come the price of your software is so much less than those others with big price tags?
A. The answer is simple. We keep our overhead lower. This allows us to keep a lower price tag price on our software and thus put it in the hands of more electrical contractors. We do not pay commissions to sales people. We do not pay for expensive full page ads or shows. We have no middlemen to pay. Nor do we have retail overheads to pay. We keep our company operations simple and efficient. For over two decades our focus is making accurate, easy to use software that any electrical contractor can afford.
