Step 7A - Job Reports and Budgets
There are 2 budget widgets available, one called the Full Budget and the other is the Cost Budget. The Full Budget displays the Estimated Budget (cost of BOQ Items), the actual Labour cost and the actual Purchase Order costs, which provides you with the Budget balance. The Full Budget also provides the estimated margin and actual margin, plus the financial status of client invoices for visibility of the projects cashflow position. If you don’t want all your staff to see your margins or cashflow, then you can also use the Cost Budget. The Cost Budget provides the Estimated Price quoted to the client against the actual spend to date for Labour and Purchase Orders. This allows staff to manage the budget without viewing full financial position of the business. Both budgets display the budgets by Cost Code Category and Cost Code, with a drill down to BOQ Item, and visibility of all the related timesheets and purchase orders.
Step 7B - Business Performance and Cashflow
Business reporting is often limited by the capability of individual software applications, such as Accounting, CRM and Projects. SOS Consulting believes that CRM is the core to your business and all information should integrate for consolidated and holistic reporting on Enquiries, Projects, Business and Individuals performance. Using the data contained in Steps 1 – 9, SOS Consulting are building a number of reports to help you analyse and drive your business decisions. These advanced reports leverage Zoho Analytics, for data from external sources and native integrations, including the data in CRM populated using custom functions and exclusive API’s. Here are some examples of the reports available.
