Track your project budget and have the financial risks visualized

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.

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.

When you have time at the office again, just log into the software and tie the expenses to the jobs in your budget.

Tracking the subcontractor order committed costs on the Planyard project budget view.

Track the budget commitments in real-time

Once the subcontractor order is registered, Planyard updates the committed costs column in the budget, highlighting if the item’s cited costs exceed the budget. This allows us to visualize the risks of item over-expenditure before the invoices arrive and allows accurate forecasting.
If the construction phase structures your budget, you’d see if a phase is profitable as you raise the orders, not once the invoices arrive, when it’s slate to take action.
So, at the first project cost control meeting, you can track the performance of the first job phases as the orders are placed.

“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.”

“We save four working days each month per project manager. The biggest efficiency booster came from getting rid of duplicate data entry.”

“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.
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.
