Why Chronicle is Different

The number of software products available that claim to serve the needs of a small business has grown threefold in the past five years. These products are generally designed to satisfy a wide range of users and therefore are “jacks of all trades and masters of none”. Time and time again we hear stories of what looks good in a demo or on paper later turning out to be lacking in key areas of functionality for a specific business.

Large enterprise software applications, such as JD Edwards®, SAP®, Baan®, while not suitable for a small business, provide an indication of the importance of industry specific applications. These companies have all dedicated millions of dollars to develop industry specific versions of their products. Why? Because not every business does things exactly the same way. Each of these firms has contractor versions of their products, which tells us something. It says that a garden variety software tool that claims to be a suitable enterprise application for contractors is probably not.

Our founder discovered this and set out to build a system that would meet the specific needs of small to medium contractor services businesses, first his and now many others like it. From that effort has come a software tool that is uniquely capable of supporting your business and sustaining a best practices standard of excellence for your operations and management.
