No job is too tough for the Job Cost module of Roundtable Software Advantage Accounting System. From construction to light manufacturing, if you need to track costs, you can rely on Job Cost to meet your needs.

Complex job estimates can be prepared quickly and easily and, when approved, quickly turned into active work orders. All costs-employee, material, overhead for labor and material and other-can be tracked in detail for all phases of a job. A wide variety of management reports give you the detail you need to control many jobs at once. Labor costs can be updated from Payroll; purchase orders for required material can be generated by Job Cost; and material can be pulled from Inventory or from the job site stock. Several reports allow you to see at a glance how the actual data posted to a job compares to your estimated requirements.
