Upgrade from manual budget spreadsheets, confusing excel equations, and time-sucking budget reconciliation to an automated system built to save you time and protect your margins. Defeat double entry with a budget that pulls from previously entered specs and selection information and updates with real-time data as clients make decisions.
Enter your information once and use it for the entire length of your project. Build your budget by creating your estimate and specs and selections. As you enter cost lines and selection choices, that information is pulled into your budget.
Your CoConstruct budget is organized by cost codes, letting you easily keep track of all of your spending. Understand what is driving your costs, what costs have been committed, and what’s still left to spend to complete your project all at a glance.
Enter ongoing bills and invoices into your budget to clearly see the projected cost remaining to complete the job. Automatically pull these costs into your budget by linking your CoConstruct account to your Quickbooks account.
As your budget is continually updated, see how costs are affecting your projected profit from your desktop or on-the-go in the CoConstruct app to ensure no unexpected costs creep up and endanger your healthy profit margin.
On cost-plus projects, show your budget to your clients so they can understand the cost implications of selections. On fixed price projects, add notes to your budgets to explain any unexpected cost changes to avoid potential problems.
With data flowing from multiple sources into your budget, have a clear picture of your costs and be reassured that your numbers are solid when you go to invoice your customers.
Before CoConstruct, we were using Excel templates that we had created to do our estimating. We thought it was doing just fine. After diving into CoConstruct…no more double checking formulas and totals – it’s all in there!
We love being able to create all the different estimating templates as well. Other CoConstruct users have even shared their templates with us and we have shared some of ours. This is just one more area of our business that CoConstruct has really made a difference.
