The Job Cost module keeps track of and reports on every cost incurred in the job. Job Cost is broken down by cost code, change order and cost type; including labor, material, subcontract, other direct cost and equipment.


Job Cost Budget Sample Screen


The Job Cost Budget keeps track of cost incurred against a job by cost category such as Labor, Material, Subcontract, Other or Equipment. Job Budgets can be established by simply entering the budget line items, copying budget from another job or importing from the estimate.
