Say goodbye to spreadsheets and record costs in construction job costing software instead
Compare actual job costs to budget
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.
Break down job costs into your chosen cost heads
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.
See your committed costs easily
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
Cash position views
As an alternative to showing actual cost and budget figures, it is possible to show the outstanding/unpaid elements of costs.
Sub job capability
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.
