Keep track of all of your budget changes
Keep track of all of your budget line-items and their changes in time. When you approve a cost or sign a contract, Planyard will warn you that your budget needs to be updated.
This means that it is impossible to be surprised at the end of the budget since the forecast is always up to date. Also, it massively reduces the time needed to compose reports about the project’s progress and profitability.
Automate your bid requests and offer comparison
Just select the jobs and materials you want to get offers for and select the contacts from who you want to get offers. If the contacts are not in Planyard yet, you can also just paste a list of email addresses.
After you send out the bid requests, the suppliers can upload their bids themselves and you will be notified once they do so. When you have enough bids collected, you can compare the bids side by side and select the most suitable one. After you have selected the best offer, then you can easily convert it to a purchase order or a subcontract with the values pre-filled.
Track work done on site and pay subcontractors with confidence
When you have all of your subcontracts and purchase orders in Planyard, then you can easily see how much has been approved and how much is still to be paid out.
This means that when a subcontractor submits a progress report, you can easily compare it to the previously done work and see that the site progress corresponds to the submittal.
This means that you have less stress about your numbers since they are always up to date and you don’t need any effort to add them up.
Our customers about us
“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.”
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.”
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.
