Red notifications help visualize the budget items with the risk of exceeding the budget

Have a budget item level control of your project financials

The simple color-coded indicators in the budget indicate if a specific budget item’s committed costs exceed the estimates. So you’ll be able to visualize items that exceed the budget way before the invoices arrive, giving you time to react accordingly.

Revising the budget eliminates the red notification; you’ll see the budget variance and how much you exceed the budget. Once the budget is revised, Planyard automatically updates the project profitability forecast.

Monitor the job phases’ financial performance

As your team uses Planyard to simplify financial management processes, Planyard automatically updates the project budget, allowing you to track item-level committed costs, job phase total committed costs, and budget variance.

This means that once the purchase orders, change orders (Variations), and subcontract orders are placed, and even as the invoices might arrive next month, you’ll be able to how the first phases of the job are financially performing.

“I wanted to escape the spreadsheets, escape the manual data entry, and look for ways to stay on top of the budget numbers. It’s challenging within a development company to keep on top of your numbers.

So I came across Planyard in a search to improve the budget management processes and, to make my own life easier.

Planyard does that, and it takes your project budget and puts it very clearly on screen for you so you have a live real-time picture of where your project budget is at any given point.”

“I have been working on cloud accounting tools like Xero and QuickBooks which are excellent, but they don’t have a specific construction-based costing tool.

Construction companies rely on expensive quantity surveyors and project managers to do a lot of data input on packages such as Excel which takes them away from focusing on value-added activities and driving the profit growth.

When I came across Planyard, I was relieved that there was finally a solution to this problem. Quotes, subcontract orders, purchase orders, invoices, progress bills, etc are put on the system and it’s linked directly to the budget, CVRs, subcontractors, and the suppliers. This is making people’s lives a lot easier. Data is at hand, it’s automated and it gets everyone away from the out-dated requirement to fill out spreadsheets.”

“I would say that Planyard is a great way to easily and conveniently track your job costs in one place. It keeps track of all of the documents and the numbers in one place.

If there’s some problem with the budget, it just tells you what you need to fix and you’ll be fine. It really just kind of thinks a step ahead for you.”
