Job Costing

The Sage DacEasy Job Cost module provides a full-featured job costing solution that allows you to estimate the cost of jobs, track costs as the job progresses, and compare the actual costs to your estimates. Sage DacEasy Job Cost is ideal for wholesalers, distributors, light manufacturers, the construction industry, and any situation where you need to control the costs of a job closely.

The Sage DacEasy Job Cost module interfaces and requires a Sage DacEasy Accounting module of the same version. Once you configure the interface between Sage DacEasy Accounting and Sage DacEasy Job Costing, the appropriate accounts are automatically updated in the Sage DacEasy Accounting General Ledger when you post a transaction in Sage DacEasy Job Cost. Optionally, you can also interface Sage DacEasy Job Cost to a Sage DacEasy Payroll module of the same version to track the payroll costs against specific jobs.
