Sage Job Costing
Sage Job Costing* is designed for any business which charges on the basis of time, material, labour or other costs. It allows you to accurately track these costs and then automatically generate invoices for your customers, based on their choice of billing method.
In addition, Sage Job Costing is a powerful tool for business analysis since it enables you to see at a glance how much you have spent on each job. With this information, it's easier to make informed decisions about how to manage costs for improved profitability.
Sage Job Costing* is designed to integrate with Sage 50. Together, the two software packages constitute a powerful tool for cost accounting, with maximum accuracy yet minimum effort. You can post directly from Sage Job Costing to Sage Line 50, and all the necessary transactions – including customer records, ledgers and profit & loss – will automatically update.
Flexibility is inbuilt, in recognition of the fact that every business has differing requirements for cost control and analysis. You choose how costs and revenues are broken down. The various cost elements can be sub-divided into as much detail as necessary, making it easy to quantify and assess all of your projects.
Sage Job Costing Professional offers additional features, such as purchase order processing and batch timesheet entry, which are ideal for companies with more complex or specialised requirements.
* Please note: Sage Job Costing only works with Sage 50 Accountant Plus or Sage Line 50 Financial Controller v9.0 or above.
