Time Tracking & Job Costing can be an accounting catastrophe

Time Tracking & Job Costing

Time tracking & job costing are significant points of reference to build competitive quotes with better margins and higher profitability.

There will come a time in every small business when efficiency and profitability decisions need to be made to help your company move forward.

Sometimes it’s difficult for entrepreneurs to let go of the reins and stay in control of their business aspects. Every small business owner can tell you it’s nearly impossible to manage day-to-day operations, clients, employees, projects, budgets, stay hands-on, and be up-to-date with accounting procedures and regulations. Something always has to give, and more often than not it’s your profit!

Time Tracking & Job Costing To Maximize Your Profits

Today, competition is fierce, margins are tight, and your business needs to invoice for every billable minute. Losing track of time and overlooking project expenses will drain your profits. Without time and expense benchmarks to reinforce your project quote it’s nearly impossible to know if your project numbers are off base. And once committed to the underpriced project there is no way to recoup lost time and project expenses.

Working with faulty information that is based on missing or hidden costs and materials is bad for business. Time tracking and job costing are critical components of financial planning because they allow you to dissect larger jobs into smaller segments and specific tasks to see where you are making money and losing profit.

QuickBooks can’t help your company recapture lost revenue, billable time, and project supplies, by optimizing your accounting, bookkeeping, and payroll process.
