The Benefits of Using Job Costing Software

Nothing is worse than finding out after your project is complete that the profits you expected to make have disappeared because of unexpected job-related expenses. Job costing software helps determine a jobís true costs before the projects starts and every step along the way. Use job costing software to avoid losing money on your next job.

Everybody knows how important it is to create an accurate estimate of a jobís total costs. Unfortunately, most project managers are so busy they donít have time to gather the information needed to accurately calculate costs as the job progresses. Job costing software makes the cost projections for you, freeing up your time to better manage the project.

Job costing software lets you resume your role as project manager, not accountant! Manual methods of job costing simply cannot keep up with a projectís daily changes. Labor hours are accurate only up through the last pay period. Invoices that are held up somewhere in the approval process are not applied to the jobs for which they were purchased until some date in the future. The actual costs of Change Orders donít show up for weeks. Itís practically impossible to manually track all job costs, even with the most carefully prepared spreadsheets.

Integrated job costing software recalculates job costs the moment relevant data is entered into the system. Information is entered one time, and then all related databases are updated. For example, as soon as invoice amounts are entered into the accounting module (even if theyíre not yet approved), they are immediately copied over and added to the costs of a specific job.

Job costing software also tracks costs that have been committed to a project the moment a purchase order for materials is created. Entering the costs of change orders into the software the moment they are issued immediately provides a revised estimate of costs and also a revised estimated of anticipated revenue.

Itís easy to keep a job on track and within budget when you use job costing software. Donít worry if the job you manage takes you off-site. Advances in technology enable project managers to enter changing job-related data right on-site, using handheld or laptop computers. Theyíre networked to the home office so all changes to a job are instantly updated company-wide.

Imagine having real-time job-specific data available right at your fingertips. Imagine being able to know that the reports you produce are true representations of job costs-to-date and committed costs. Imagine no longer because itís possible with job costing software.

So throw away the shoe boxes and the binders and the spreadsheets and replace them with job costing software. If you think you canít afford this type of software, think again. What you can no longer afford is to lose the expected profit on your projects. Job costing software gives you the advance notice you need to keep your projects on track and within budget. The software may even show more profit on the project than originally anticipated. Wouldnít that be a nice change?
