The Information Backbone
of Every Construction Firm

The issue is very simple.

If you don't know your costs, you can't make money in our industry!

You know what's really scary though?

Many contractors are clueless about the sad state of their job costing systems. That's a very danerous position to be in. You absolutely MUST know how much it costs you to put in work and how fast your workers work. And it's not easy.

Job Costing Systems Are Very,
Very Difficult To Get Right

Setting up an effective job costing system requires a deft touch, a KISS approach, and an incredible understanding of employee behavior. Missing the mark by just a touch leads to the collection of useless information.

A poorly designed job costing system
wastes valuable employee time.

When set up correctly, job costing lays the foundation for running a successful operation. Its reach extends far and wide. Job costing is the driver of:

* Accurate estimating
* Accurate scheduling
* Effective management of field performance
* Effective bonus systems
