Job Cost Consulting

Make More Profits
From Your Contract Job

If you’ve felt like there should be more money in your bank account after completing your contract jobs, then you are not alone.  Many contractors get surprised with poor profit margins based on incomplete cost reporting, under-estimating, or simply not understanding the job costing process.

Do any of these describe you?

  • You are stuck, lost, or overwhelmed in job cost data entry hell.
  • 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 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.)
  • Your gut feel tells you something is wrong with the numbers your job cost system is producing.

The good news is there is an easy solution to your job costing challenges. We offer customized consulting services to help you improve your job profitability from your job cost system.

“The first time I contacted Monica, I learned more from her in one week, than I did all year trying to figure it out for myself! Even as I learn more about Enterprise and what it can do for our company, I have to realize that my time is better spent making money and letting her tell me how to track it for the various complicated scenarios I face. In one incident, I could have saved almost $5k in labor costs and been working on something else entirely, MAKING money, instead of wasting money. As I have explained each requirement to Monica, she has been able to provide a solution that provides constant tracking on any contracting situation.”
