Track Cost & Time by Cost Code

Choose how you would like to track and project job costs, whether you prefer a more detailed approach using cost items or more broadly by cost code. This allows you to build detailed estimates using cost items and easily view your budget by cost code once the job is underway. Employees can select a cost code for each time entry when logging time and bills can be reconciled to cost codes to simplify the billing process. When tracking by cost code, all projections will be aggregated at the code level in the job budget as well as the Work in Progress (WIP) report.

Targeted Messaging

Define recipients when adding messages on activity feeds, documents, tasks, daily logs, files, and more! Whether it's internal team members or external customers and vendors, invite them to each conversation by selecting their role or individual names. This ensures that only those invited can view and message in the thread, fostering efficient and targeted communication. Organization administrators still maintain oversight with access to all message threads. Start using targeted messaging today to make sure your messages are in the right hands!
