PBS™ Distribution: Job Cost Module

Job Cost Module – PBS Distribution


Job Cost provides the tools you need to track costs, income, and profits related to specific jobs and sub-jobs

Reports that tabulate and examine costs, compare actual with budgeted or estimated costs, and track job billings and payments are available

New or in-progress jobs can be easily entered and edited

Labor costs, material costs, subcontract costs, profit, and up to five user-defined cost types are tracked for management

Cost categories are user-defined, and budgets for all detailed costs can be entered

Jobs cannot be activated unless estimates are equal to the job price

Budgets are tracked against actual costs incurred

Tracks progress in terms of percentage completed and cost remaining to complete



Completion estimates can be entered for individual parts of jobs

Generate completion estimate entries for all cost items for a job, as well as an entry for the entire job

Completed jobs can be saved for viewing or later restoration to an active status

Information for a new job can be quickly created by copying all or part of another job

Costs for materials, subcontractors, and supplies can be entered in Accounts Payable and automatically transferred to the right jobs in Job Cost
