Overview of BCS Office: Starter

BCS Starter is a great option for companies with small sized teams looking to start a new business with the right software solution or upgrade from manual processes or out of date systems.

BCS Office Starter Edition may suit your business if:

  • Your company is looking to grow and is in need of more powerful project tools to help with the increase in projects
  • You are starting your own business and are looking for a smarter more efficient system for certification 
  • Your company deals with a low volume of mainly residential projects and looking for a cost efficient solution

Beacon Consulting chose to use BCS since our inception in 2010 as it provided an online portal through which our inspectors can access and transmit reports live. The flexibility of the system has allowed us to adjust the fields, templates and document stamping to suit our business needs. Our business wouldn’t exist without the ability for the BCS system to be able to grow with us.
