Still using Excel for budget management?
There’s a better way.

Spreadsheets are not the best way for managing job costs
  • It’s too easy to make mistakes;
  • You can’t see behind the numbers;
  • It’s hard to standardize and ensure compliance;
  • There’s no real-time overview of profitability forecasts;
  • It means duplicate work for PMs and accountants.
Planyard saves time and nerves

Follow your budget in real time and take immediate action when errors occur. Job costs are organized, and fully searchable and accessible for forecasting, project management and more.

Track your project budget and have the financial risks visualized

Organize jobs into hierarchical categories

You can organize the line-items in the budget into as many categories as you need. This lets you track job costs both on the category and line-item level.

You can add line-items to Planyard manually or upload them via spreadsheet after estimating has been done.

Job costing software on mobile

Organize expenses on the go

Planyard lets you process your expenses via mobile right when they occur. Simply take a photo of a paper receipt or forward your PDF invoice just as you would share files on Facebook. You no longer need to collect paper expenses or mark emails with invoices as “unread”.

We also integrate with Microsoft Outlook, Gmail and other web email solutions, so, you can send invoices to Planyard straight from your inbox.

Send the subcontractor progress report for internal approval to site-engineer or finance

Approve invoices and progress reports with confidence

Assign progress reports and invoices to be reviewed by relevant stakeholders right after they get sent to Planyard by subcontractors.

When a review process is started, an email with links to Planyard are sent out to participants. They will then see all the documents that need approval together with the details.

All documents can be commented on – these notes get stored next to the files simplifying the whole approval process.

No more back and forth emails and nothing gets lost in communication.

“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.”

Ian Holford

Manager, Higgihaus Developments

“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.”
