SAP Business One for Project Costing

In the current climate, companies in the project industry face additional challenges in ensuring compliance to the latest industry regulations. As a result, it has become more critical to strive for maximum efficiency and ensure that no project resources are wasted.    

Many project companies encounter challenges in tracking their project statuses – each project consists of stages from conception, design, pre-construction, procurement, actual construction to post-construction. In addition to managing multiple projects concurrently, project managers need to continually monitor and manage changes to project scopes, cost overruns and other challenges that can adversely affect project completion and profit margins. 

Project companies are also reliant on information-tracking to ensure that they do not under-quote nor over-quote for new projects, as under-quoting puts them at risk of making losses on the project, while over-quoting reduces their chances of winning project tenders.

Without a deep insight into your project operations and efficiency, it is difficult to pinpoint specific areas or stages for process improvement which limits business growth and profitability in the long run. 

To counter these issues, a growing number of companies in the project industry choose to upgrade to a fully integrated project costing ERP system to provide them with more accurate and timely insights into their project stages and operations for greater productivity.
