Does your business need a job costing system?

When your business is growing, you need to start looking for ways to manage your projects better. Whether you want to come off the tools, get more money back for your hard work, it might be the right time to think about a job costing system.

To help you make the decision on whether your business should be on the lookout for the right project management system, we’ve pulled together some of the key reasons why customers have come to WorkGuru.io. If you’re answering yes to these questions, then a job costing software could be a good fit. 

Do you know how much you make on your jobs?

Are all your projects profitable? Do you know if a specific job has made money and how much? If these questions are keeping you up at night, then the good news is job costing software can help you find the answers.

Software like WorkGuru helps you more accurately track your costs as you work so you can see how much you’ve spent vs how much you are set to make. Job costing systems show you how much you are making, but can also help you spot issues early.

Do you know which jobs are the most profitable? 

On a similar note, having good project management goes beyond just reporting project by project. Armed with powerful data, you’ll be able to work out your profitability overall and start to get a sense of what work is worth doing, and what you might need to change to get more from your unprofitable projects.
