Organize jobs into sections in this construction job costing software
Let the construction job costing software do your job costing for you. It will take away the need to go through numerous excel sheets to make sure what each final job cost is.
You can organize the line-items in the budget into as many job cost categories as you need. This lets you track job costs both on the category and line-item level.
This makes it possible to see exactly where the final costs for each job are coming from.

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.
When you have time at the office again, just log into the software and tie the expenses to the jobs in your budget.
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 you start a review process, an email with links to Planyard is sent out to participants. They will then see all the documents that need approval together with the details.
You can comment on all documents – these notes get stored next to the files. This simplifies the whole approval process.
You will not lose anything in communication anymore.
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.”
“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.”
Partner, TITN Development
“We save four working days each month per project manager. The biggest efficiency booster came from getting rid of duplicate data entry.”
Head of Construction, Kaamos Group
“We wanted to know before a project finished whether we were going to make a profit or not. Planyard has allowed us to do that. We can see exactly which jobs are profitable and which ones are not, so that we can make changes on the go.”

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.
