Are Your Job Costing Methods Sabotaging Your Bid Estimates and Your Profit Margins?

From: Monica Mitchell Muir, Advanced Certified QuickBooks ProAdvisor and Job Cost Expert

Dear Contractors and Bookkeepers:

At the end of a job, have you ever felt like there should be a lot more money in your bank account to show for all the great work you just did? The problem is that some job costs are more obvious than others: Indirect costs -- employment benefits, project management time, rent, utilities, and phone calls; the list goes on -- can hide or be easily miscalculated. If you ignore them, your profit erodes. If you overestimate them, you lose your competitiveness - and the bid.

Mastering job costing is critical to your business success and profitability. It requires a constant balancing act between profitability and competitiveness. The key is to accurately track all of your project expenses through effective job costing.

Do any of these describe you?

  • You are unsure about the full cost of the jobs you perform.
  • Your job costing system could use improvement (or is nonexistent, assuming you don't count the paper napkin approach.)
  • It takes too long to get the reports you need to effectively evaluate your projects, or the reports you do get don't answer the questions you have.
  • You are stuck, lost, or overwhelmed in job cost data entry hell.
  • Your gut feel tells you something is wrong with the numbers your job cost system is producing, and you lack confidence in relying on them for decision-making.

If so, you are not alone. I see many construction business owners struggling with job costing. The good news is there is an easy solution to your job costing challenges. You're in the exact right place to learn about a webinar designed especially to help you improve your job profitability from your job cost system.
