The Cypher1 Contract Costing program allow the user to monitor the progress of his ‘Jobs’ against ‘Budget‘, evaluating at a glance the current status, thus avoiding costly penalties for late completion or ‘over spending’.

  • Purchase Invoices can be allocated to a Job and posted to Sage Line 50 at the same time, avoiding the time consuming DOUBLE ENTRY. These Purchase Invoices can be batch posted, 20 or 30 (or more at a time).
  • Weekly Time Sheets can also be batch posted to Jobs and ‘Workers Details’ can be stored to speed up the entry of these Time Sheets. Hours can be immediately posted to Sage Payroll for Windows
  • If the Estimate has been produced using the Cypher1 Estimating Software, the Net Cost Budgets for Material, Labour, Miscellaneous and Estimated Hours can be imported when setting up the Job.
  • The program also ‘reads’ information specific to the Job in question directly from other SEC Solutions programs :
  • Purchase Order Processing - to display ‘Committed Costs’
  • Invoicing - To record Sales information and Profit margins
  • Applications - To record monies applied for under the contract

The end user can also see lists of Material / Purchase Invoices and Labour that has been allocated to a Job, and the program produces top quality prints showing financial information on each Job, or ‘Summary’ information of all active/complete Jobs between a certain date range. From the production of a simple ‘Job Sheet’ to a full ‘Work In Progress’ report.

The Costing program now incorporates a maintenance mode as well and allow for planned maintenance scheduling and also for repair callouts.
