How Labor Job Costing Improves Productivity
Why a good job costing system is important for your business
The purpose of a business is profitability, and job costing is the most effective way to ensure that happens. Every business can benefit from job costing – to ensure estimates cover everything from materials to employee labor and overhead - to deliver some hard earned profit at the end. Whether you're in construction, landscaping, a sub-contractor, service provider or in professional services, job costing with employee time makes (and saves) a lot of cents!
Sync Timesheets to Payroll in One Easy Click
The secret sauce for job costing is.... labor allocation!
Job costing starts with accurate employee time designated to the right project or job code (happens automatically in TSheets) – and finishes with detailed labor reporting and filtering options as numerous as the stars in the sky (may be sliiiiiiightly exaggerated...). Truly, however, TSheets syncs with QuickBooks in one click for easy invoicing, payroll and QuickBooks reporting. Watch our job costing with QuickBooks webinar to learn more or read how one ProAdvisor uses TSheets for labor job costing with value billing.
