Cost controllers using accounting software and spreadsheets are overworked, unhappy, and unable to manage effectively. Even though project controllers have some tools that kind of work, they have difficulties producing regular consistent reports because 1. their apps won’t allow it, 2. they don’t have access to timely data, and 3. each discipline/group does their own thing and its hell to make sense of it all.
ProjecTools cost control software takes a slightly different approach. Through our work with some of the most prominent players and biggest projects, we understand that the budget is a foundation of the project – without it you can’t even work toward profitability. With that in mind we built a clever, albeit simple tool that standardized the wbs, integrated with accounting, procurement, engineering, and labor tracking to gather actuals, and translated reports into the client’s terms.
ProjecTools cost control is more than just a budget tool – hell, a spreadsheet could do that – it is an insanely clever application that produces spectacular, consistent reports at any discipline level. Which coincidentally, usually saves 10% on schedule and 14% on overall budget according to our friends at IPA.
