Job Cost

Keeping tabs on the course of jobs couldn’t be easier

In a job shop production environment, a company can simply perform a service for customers such as machining services and/or producing a product. Service-only shops typically have a short turnaround time for customer orders, with a strong emphasis on job status reporting as well as accurate labor and materials costing to the job. In addition to these requirements, a shop that produces a product will require tight inventory control and the ability to buy parts and materials to the job.

With TRAVERSE Job Cost, you can defi ne the structure of the job and make decisions about how the job levels will accrue costs and how billing will be handled. You’ll also be able to get information on job-todate costs compared to estimates. The history screens provide billing, cost and profi t information on a month-to-date, year-to-date, and project-to-date basis.
