Features of Project Cost Tracking

Managing your project resources

Assign project managers, employees, equipment, and other resources to projects and tasks. Establish billing rules and options for each task.

Defining tasks

Define tasks globally or for individual projects. Assign billing rates by project, job role, and individual to generate expected revenues in project budgets.

Easy to update tasks

Easily add activities using Project Accounting or through CRM. All Acumatica modules are fully integrated.

Forecast project budget by period

Enter and modify project budget forecasts and compare these forecasts with the actual project costs and incomes for each financial period. Users can forecast original and revised budget amounts and quantities for existing project budget lines for financial periods of the master calendar. Also, users can create generic inquiries and pivot tables.

Allocate expenses

Allocate overhead and shared expenses to individual projects according to formulas you create including billable and non-billable items.

Templates for projects and tasks

Create new projects from master templates. Specify people, equipment, budgets, and project billing. Multiple users can work on multiple concurrent projects.

WIP support

Keep close track of accumulated but unbilled costs (work-in-progress) to help keep projects on-budget. Acumatica adds control for billing against schedule without losing track of actual expenditures.

Choose a solution that enables you to simplify budget forecast and cost tracking. Enjoy the process of comparing past projects with current projects in order to estimate time and cost, better known as analogous estimating.
