Are you confident in your job cost numbers? Many contractors aren’t. In construction that’s like driving 100 mph with no visibility. Job costing software can help.

The spreadsheet dilemma

At one time you may have been able to track your job costs using a spreadsheet. That was back when you weren’t juggling as many projects at one time. But now, business is booming. Suddenly you or your team have to break out costs for a heck of a lot more jobs, making it virtually impossible to keep up. Most of the time, you may not really know if you’ve made or lost money until after project closeout.

There is a better way.

Sage job costing software gives you an accurate, day-by-day picture of your job costs. So you always know where you stand against your project budget.
See how.

Tips to nail your job costing

Have you ever closed out a job then received a bill you’d completely forgotten about? Suddenly the profit you thought you’d made erodes before your eyes. Our software helps you issue and track purchase orders and subcontracts to give you the clearest picture of every cost connected to a job.
Understanding how your budget has changed and why it’s changed is critical to pinpointing your true job costs. Documenting and monitoring the status of change orders will give you that vantage point and make sure you get paid for all the work you do.
Labor is your biggest risk to losing money on your jobs. Capturing and reporting work time on a daily, rather than a weekly, basis will improve time sheet accuracy and give you a more current view of labor costs. We can help with integration to mobile time card reporting applications.
Our software lets you take proactive measures to monitor your costs. Simply set up an automatic alert that notifies you when jobs haven’t been billed, profit falls below a specified percent, or another event occurs that could impact your job costs.
Tracking actual costs against your budget and using that information to refine future bids will improve your company’s ability to win more profitable work.
