Major upgrades for Job Costing and Plan & Track

Our January update brings major new features that improve the way job costing, budgeting, and communication are handled within Knowify. Read on for more info on this month’s most impactful changes:

1. Advanced Job Costing

Available on Essentials, Advanced, and Unlimited Plans

Get a complete view of your project costs with new job costing categories for equipment and miscellanea.

Budget equipment costs to understand how your owned and rented equipment is affecting job profitability. Use the new miscellanea category to track costs that don’t belong anywhere else. Account for fuel, lodging, permits, travel, and more to get a full picture of what’s effecting your cashflow on a given job.

Users on Unlimited plans will also be able to track equipment time directly in Plan & Track

2. Revised Plan and Track

Available on Essentials, Advanced, and Unlimited Plans

Get ready for a sleeker and more informative Plan & Track. Quickly evaluate cost for every phase of your job, with new color-coded bars that reflect each category’s % of your total budget, and highlight where you’re running over or under budget.

Cost categories in a phase: materials, labor, subcontractors, equipment, miscellanea | January release | Knowify

Users on the Advanced and Unlimited plans can quickly switch your plan and track view, to focus on your costs vs budget, or on your progress vs forecasted dates, so you can quickly measure job progress and success by whichever metric suits you best.

3. Production Tracking

Available on Advanced, and Unlimited Plans

Advanced and Unlimited users will now have access to production tracking, where you’ll be able to see daily progress on each phase of a job, and include images and comments describing the progress made. If you’re interested in using Production Tracking, you can enable it in admin→customize→project management.
