General

Is mJobTime only for construction companies?
Definitely not! We have a number of customers in other industries. Although our primary market has been the construction industry, mJobTime is well suited for just about any entity whose work centers around projects or jobs and who have employees in the field. To make it easier for our non-construction customers, we give you the ability to rename our primary data fields. For example, you could use Customer or Project instead of Job, Sub-Job instead of Phase, or Task or Activity instead of Cost Code. mJobTime is a very flexible system well-suited for any number of industries.
