Setting up Job Costing
When implementing Joblogic it's really straightforward to setup some job costing rules that can help you to accurately report on spend and profit. You can setup cost rates per hour against each of your engineers. This rate is typically calculated based on salary, national insurance and other costs such as vehicles, training and tools. There's a pay bands matrix which calculates timesheet entries to apply either a basic or overtime rate based on the day of the week and time of day. For materials costing Joblogic has a comprehensive parts library, each with an associated cost. Selling rates are used to govern the sales rate for labour and percentage markups on materials. Fixed rates can be applied for travel time and mileage. Selling rates can be applied globally in the system or you can have different rates for different customers. Once this job costing data is inputted into the system it's used to power some really useful reporting.
