Forward-thinking manufacturers strive to be lean – but without detailed cost analysis, based on accurate and up-to-date data, it’s difficult to identify inefficiencies that could be making projects less profitable.
Increase profitability of in-progress jobs
Cost management software allows you to track the profitability of every in-progress job, instead of waiting until it’s complete. Real-time visibility of operations makes it easy for managers to share information about capacity, inventory and equipment downtime with shop floor teams, or rapidly compare estimate-to-actual job costs and understand profitability by customer or job.
With real-time operational visibility, shop floor teams can manage resources more effectively to reduce downtime and ensure production stays on track.
Cost analysis and reporting tools help you understand the costs for work-in-progress and completed jobs, so you can determine the impact on profit margins.
Understand actuals and estimates of every job and address any issues while it’s in progress, and avoid them in the future.
Eliminate spreadsheets by bringing all your data together in a single cloud-based system – saving time and reducing the risk of error.
Accurate data capture, automation and custom configuration allows you to standardise key processes, improving quality control and giving you confidence in your decision-making.
Real-time data, with complete departmental integration, communication, and traceability – helping to ensure on-time, in full (OTIF) delivery and a high standard of customer service.
