Job Costing Software

Job Costing

Our Manufacturing Suite is made up of the modules you need to successfully cost and control your factory operations whilst planning your requirements for labour, materials and plant such that you can predict your future position and plan accordingly.

The Online Advantage Job Costing module is a powerful project costing tool for monitoring the progress, productivity and profitability of each job you undertake.

This module enables the creation, tracking and costing of projects resulting in jobs that are more easily managed and profitable. The Job Costing system collects information from our other modules/ledgers and accumulates costs and values against nominated jobs. It is designed to cover the requirements of made to order manufacturers and jobbing/fabrication/project orientated businesses creating or building “product” to customer specifications or for internal project tracking.
