Report: Actual Cost

We all know that having access to  accurate real time information gives us the confidence to make the right decisions!  That is why QicWorks has made it super easy to see exactly what each Job is Costing you from the one report - Actual Cost Report.

This report uses the Net Cost table, expense and purchase order raw cost plus any overhead allowance set within your Job Financials to calculate your actual costs to date.   This report is visible to those with Manager and above access permissions.

Your Actual Cost report is available at both Job and individual Task levels.

The values used within the Actual Cost Report come from the Net Cost Table, plus any overhead set.
