II. Analytical discussion of the present state of applying the finance and accounting software of the
1. The present state of applying the finance and accounting software of the Lung Lo Construction
The company is using the accounting software Misa. This software is rather famous in the market.
It has been used since 2008 and has become inadequate in many respects:
• The software does not have the reporting system typical for the needs of the construction
sector. The company is a construction one and it has used many management reports to
administer schemes and construction projects. Costs and profits are all calculated and allocated
to each project. This is the most obvious shortcoming of softwar Misa, regarding its failure to
meet the needs of present management.
• Presently the softwares fail to update the changes of the state accounting system.
• The software has the low ability while extending and connecting with the applied software of
the subsidiaries and other units. The company has transformed into the business form mother
company and many daughter companies together with many dependent units, having a great
need for synthesizing reports. [p.5 Vietnamese] The company’s accounting department has 19
staff members and they have to work excessively overtime on the occasions of synthesizing
The case of the subsidiaries: At present the finance and accounting software has been applied at
many subsidiaries. Today there are rather numerous inadequacies:
The subsidiaries bought software from different people. The system is different, helping to
make it rather difficult to synthesize data.
Rather numerous units have not used software.
2. Comparison with professional rivals in the construction sector.
Today small construction companies as well as big construction general corporations have applied
modern finance and accounting software. There are backward steps in the state of IT application
in Lung Lo Construction Company. Comparison with a number of organization in the sector is
made to show the present weaknesses and shortcomings of Lung Lo Construction Company.
Comparison with the following organizations is made: Housing and Urban Development
Corporation (HUD) , Nam Cuong Group, Song Hong Corporation.
Year of application
Applied in the whole organization
Updating new information and
Development/Implementation costs 10
Peculiar management reports
Whole company online connection
It can be seen in the above table that the software used by Lung Lo Construction Company is the
weakest one among those used by the compared companies. The failure to invest or use a strong
enough software will make the company bear great costs like those regarding: Expenditure on
salaries of cadres and expenditure of time, etc. This is the weak point leading to inadequacy in
managing the projects and expenditures, reducing the competitiveness of the Lung Lo
Construction Company in comparison with rivals in the same economic sector.
3. Lessons drawn from Nam Cuong experiences
[p.6 Vietnamese] Nam Cuong Group selected and has applied the software Fast Accounting since
2005 and presently is applying it in 19 member units.
Nam Cuong Group was established in 1984, operating in different sectors like real estate,
construction, investments, tourism, mineral exploitation, etc. Nam Cường has been known as a
group strong in the fields of real estate and infrastructure construction with big projects like: The
development axis route North of Ha Dong and New Town Dương Nội, Project “The Ha Tay
province 63,23 km North-South socio-economic axis development route and the new town “Green
Ha Tay”, the extended Le Van Luong street project and New Town Phùng Khoang.
In 2005 Nam Cuong Group selected the software Fast Accounting and applied it in 7 member
units. In the following years Nam Cuong Group successively applied it in the remaining member
units and today 19 member units are using Fast Accounting. Moreover, at the main office and in a
number of member units the version “Fast Accounting for Construction” is being used.
Everyday the total number of people using the software Fast Accounting in Nam Cường Group is
To extend the software successfully Nam Cuong Group applied it for the mother company and
standardized all systems of management reports. In the beginning stage, the mother company
selected the solution of synthesizing data by integrating data taken from the excel tables of the
member units. Software Fast enabled Nam Cuong Group to have a system of management reports
of its own and issue a standard excel form. The member units would enter data into the excel
tables in accordance with the standard form and send them to the parent company. Thanks to a kit
developed by Fast the data was to be updated and entered into the software automatically.
In the second year, the parent company continued to apply the software to 07 member units. The
data fields were designed like the management reports before, helping the accountants to easily
approach and use the applied software.
In the third year, the parent company applied the software in 12 subsidiaries. Today the reporting
system is completely integrated into the accounting software and the units do not have to enter
data into the report forms like before. The system of the subsidiary software would automatically
produce a data file for conveyance to the software of the parent company.
[p.7 Vietnamese] At present, with the synchronized and scientific or methodical use of the
software, Nam Cuong Group achieves clearely beneficial working effectiveness:
Not wasting time to synthesize report data. Everything is automatic and accurate. Nam
Cuong Group can synthesize the Group’s data almost right upon the conveyance of the data
from the units. This helps the leaders of the parent company to grasp the common data of
the Group immediately.
Labour productivity increased
Closely controlling the costs resulting from the performance of the projects, minimizing
errors and negative deeds during the realization of the schemes.
The system of distinctive reports helps the Group to keep track of the business results of
each job or case and project. This is the most necessary thing for a construction company
like Nam Cuong.
With the business form parent and subsidiary companies in the construction sector, Nam Cuong
Group has the same characters as Lung Lo Construction Company. The expansion experiences of
Nam Cuong Group can be seen as the great lessons for Lung Lo Construction Company in the
latter’s process of developing its applied finance and accounting software.

enterprise are solved in the software AMIS.VN of Misa
Managing Costs according to Projects
Software AMIS.VN fully meets the needs to gather costs and calculate costs for the firms building
and erecting projects. Following are the operating steps on the software:
Gathering direct costs: The accountant only needs to input data once, the software will
automatically synthesize direct costs for each project and each internal item and the accountant
only needs to check the data before calculating costs.
Allocating indirect costs: There are very diversified and complex general costs arising from
the performance of construction works. Therefore, MISA enables the establishment of the
allocating rations, helping the accountants easily track the allocation of expenses to each
project and item, etc.
Assessing unfinished products and accepting projects: After gathering and allocating expenses
the software will automatically calculate the cost for each project.
Besides, AMIS.VN can also track the expenses of subcontractors, a peculiar cost of the
construction sector. This cost arises when the firm outsource an outsider to perform part of the
[p. 12 Vietnamese] Managing profits and losses according to each project, contract
Given the peculiar activities of the construction companies, the management of profits and costs
according to each project or contract unfolds rather complexly, requiring details and clarity, etc.
