ARE YOU LOOKING FOR THE BEST JOB COSTING SOFTWARE?
Do you need to accurately quote for prospective jobs? Do you need to charge out time for services? Perhaps you also need to keep track of exactly what resources are to be used on jobs to ensure fair and reasonable billing for your customers? We can point you in the right direction.
Job Costing is used by organisations that charge out time for services performed. They need to know if the cost of the work performed is adequately rewarded by the charges they make to their clients.
It involves managing a list of clients, the jobs that are performed for those clients, the disbursements made on behalf of clients and attributing staff time to the jobs for work performed.
WHY IS JOB COSTING IMPORTANT?
The relevance of Job Costing depends on your perspective. If you are customer focused, having the ability to accurately quote for prospective jobs, then keep track of exactly what resources are used on jobs can ensure fair and reasonable billing to customers – supported by evidence if required.
Customers also expect timely invoicing for services performed on their behalf. Job Costing systems allow this to happen with ease.
As with any business activity, there is a need to ensure resources are bought and sold at the right prices to ensure profit. This applies to labour costs of service organisations.
If an organisation is wishing to incorporate best practice / structured processes and workflows in their approach to business, a Job Costing system will assist with this. The system forces the use of rules and disciplines that contribute toward best practice and efficiency.
