Job Costing

The heart of your business. Automated – Accurate – Timely

This innovative Job/Labour Cost & Validation Module enables you to accurately track and attribute time and labour costs by department, job, operation, employee, and more.  Five levels of totals may be defined, each with its own user defined name.  These additional levels allow for a more in-depth breakdown of cost information. 


Know exactly how much time was spent in all areas of your operation.  Recorded hours can be broken down by employee, shift, department, job, step, operation, and task, and sorted in any order you request.  Hours can further be broken down by regular time and up to three levels of overtime. 


In addition to tracking and reporting hours spent within these areas, wage or Labour rates may also be applied to allow accurate recording of Labour costs incurred.  Actual employee wages or preset rates (including overheads) can be used. 


Keep track of quantities produced, accepted and rejected, and the Labour associated with producing them.  With accuracy and ease, employees can enter quantities produced, accepted and rejected as they are performing the work.  The quantity report will show how much time, by department, employee, job, step, etc. was expended to produce a particular quantity. 

Piece Rate

Used in conjunction with quantities, piece rate enables you to multiply a particular quantity by its assigned rate.  A gross piece rate can then be reported by department, employee, job, step, etc. 

Budgeting and Forecasting

Immediately see if you are on schedule for the completion of any project.  Forecasting takes into consideration the hours worked and dollars spent to date, along with the scheduled hours still to work, to come up with forecasted totals for any department, job, step, operation and task in the system. 

Forecasting can tell you if you will be over or under budget prior to the completion of a job. 

This allows you to adjust schedules to meet future requirements and avoid overpaying employees.  You can enter budgetary numbers for both hours and dollars.  These budgetary factors can be applied to each function within your business. 


Budgetary reports, such as an Actual vs. Scheduled vs. Budgeted, report on the comparisons. 

With ENTERPRISE you can gain better control over your business by knowing, at any time, where your Labour hours and dollars are being spent and if those hours/dollars are running under budget.
