Greentree Job Cost Management – 10 Key Features

Greentree gives your business the agility it needs to respond to customer needs more effectively and profitably than ever before.
These 10 Key Features of the Greentree Job Cost Management module will enable your organisation to get the visibility and financial insight you need to take the lead.

  1. Pre-defined templatesUsing pre-defined templates when creating jobs makes it quick and easy when you have multiple jobs with the same basic parameters. Using special number ranges, including prefix and suffix additions, can be used to track jobs common attributes.
  2. Multiple customersAssigning multiple customers to a job using a split sales function allows distribution and the ability to pro-rata job costs across customers prior to invoicing.
  3. Project jobsProject-based businesses and project managers can track actual and estimate activity by project and phases, at the summary or detailed level. A parent job can be set-up with multiple sub-jobs, each contributing to the profitability of the parent job.
  4. Price booksMultiple price books can be created to work out the selling price for labour and material costs. Sell rates and mark-up percentages can be set up for specific jobs, activities, items, or employees. These can also be combined with inventory price books to improve flexibility when pricing jobs.
  5. Margin percentageA margin percentage can be used to accurately track a job’s ongoing profitability.
  6. Bulk invoicingCreating proforma invoices in bulk reduces the time spent on this task by accounts and removes repetition. When approved, they can be easily converted to sales invoices in bulk –saving more time, improving productivity and increasing accuracy
  7. Plant chargesGreentree performs an important function of tracking how much it’s costing you to keep your plant and equipment running. The costs of equipment used on jobs, including plant hire and maintenance costs can be recorded and sale prices updated to ensure costs are being recouped.
