Every Finance Director knows that recording construction job costs accurately can be the difference between a profitable job and a failing one.
So why do you still rely on generic accounting systems not built for the needs of construction - or even worse - a multitude of different spreadsheets?
The only way to keep tight control of your contract costs is to record them accurately in a single, integrated system like Evolution Mx.
Our customers enjoy total cost visibility across all of their contracts - whether they have a handful or hundreds of jobs on the go at any one time.
Give your team access to job costs at any time, whether they're on-site or in the office, thanks to our web-based job costing software. All they will need is a mobile device or tablet and an Internet connection.
Budgets can be imported against contracts from Excel, after being exported from your chosen estimating software. Budgets can be updated as the contract progresses, without having to overwrite, meaning you can store multiple budgets per job.
Being able to compare actual job costs against budget throughout directly within the job costing software means your team can be agile and proactive in managing costs, with no nasty surprises or hidden costs upon completion.
Our job costing software allows you to split job costs down into specific cost heads, which allows you to analyse cost heads individually and compare against budgets. For example, you could split job costs into Material, Labour and Plant, with another level of cost heads within Materials.
Alternatively, you can use our job costing software to break down costs by activity, such as stages, plots, phases or tasks.
How you split your job costs down is really down to your business and your preferences, and Evolution Mx allows for complete customisation.
One of the key features of our job costing software, Evolution Mx, is the option to show costs relating to outstanding purchase orders alongside actual and total costs
As an alternative to showing actual cost and budget figures, it is possible to show the outstanding/unpaid elements of costs.
Contracts can be totally independent of each other within the job costing software or can be defined as a ‘Parent’ job, beneath which individual sub jobs exist. Cost, budget and revenue progress can be tracked on both a combined and individual basis, e.g. phases, stages, plots, variations, etc.
