Our existing systems cannot show me my open supplier invoices by project and I need to do a cash flow forecast.
Our project accountant believes we have short billed one of our clients. Late timecards and expenses have not been taken into account during invoicing. How can prevent this in future?

Automatically calculate unbilled revenue by entering billing rules and sell rates per Resource / WBS / Project or any combination of parameters.

As actual transactions  (purchases, disbursements, timecards and capital cost invoices) are processed in system, the unbilled transactions are automatically created by the project specific  rules for mark-up. This will drastically reduce the risk of missing hours or disbursements when invoicing. The unbilled transactions are available to select for invoicing  from the system. All unbilled transactions will continue to display until invoiced or marked as non-billable. The invoice automatically updates the AR module as well as the project, and provides and audit trail from source transaction to the final revenue transaction generated.

Cost of labor on my project is skyrocketing. Project managers only get to review time once imported from the timecard system. How can I review and control timecards before we run the risk of an overspent.

Automatically calculate unbilled revenue by entering billing rules and sell rates per resource / WBS / Project or any combination of parameters.

As actual transactions  (purchases, disbursements, timecards and capital cost invoices) are processed in system, the unbilled transactions are automatically created by the project specific  rules for mark-up. This will drastically reduce the risk of missing hours or disbursements when invoicing. The unbilled transactions are available to select for invoicing  from the system. All unbilled transactions will continue to display until invoiced or marked as non-billable.

The invoice automatically updates the AR module as well as the project, and provides an audit trail from source transaction to the final revenue transaction generated.

QA Software offer solutions for the control of inter alia:

  • Drawings, specifications, quality manuals, etc. (QDMS)
  • Controls vendor documents from the Vendor Data Lists (VDRL), through procurement and commissioning (QDMS)
  • All other project communication (QTRAK).
  • On-site inspection with PDA (QDMI)
  • Material Management System (BOM, Etc.) (QMS)
  • Web based project document management and collaboration solution (TEAMBINDER).

Avoid resources booking to incorrect WBS codes by assigning each resource to only the projects and tasks that they are scheduled to work on.

Rejected timecards will be redirected to resources along with an email notification stating the reason for rejection. 
Microsoft Dynamics SL provides the functionality to have different cost rates and roles by resource and project. As time is processed, the system  automatically detects the rate and roles assigned for the projects, and processes the time related transaction accordingly.

Time is not booked accurately. How can I improve productivity of my admin personel who have to correct timecards all the time?
