  1. Job Costing software solutions

    Improve efficiency, manage cost effectiveness and job performance with the Micronet Job Costing System. Micronet Job Costing is a comprehensive Job Costing and Billing system specifically designed to suit the contractor, service organisation, small manufacturer or engineering workshop.

    Micronet Job Costing will maintain the work in progress for each job automatically giving concise job cost and profit management information. The job entry screen allows for incoming job details to be entered in a simple, quick and efficient way.

    Additional ‘user defined questions’ can be established to capture call information relevant to your business such as model number, taken by, serial number, chassis number, make, warranty details, etc. Labour and materials can be entered either from timesheets, via the service call sheet and direct from supplier invoices.

    Micronet Job Costing will automatically price service jobs for you based on your own markups and labour rates. Materials can be drawn directly from your Micronet Distribution system inventory file or purchase orders can be raised against jobs and committed costs tracked until the items are received from your suppliers. Once the supplier invoices have been reconciled they can be posted to the Micronet Creditors Ledger for payment processing. Jobs can be quickly recalled as required.

    Micronet Job Costing is equipped with a powerful inquiry program that can display jobs either in job order, customer order or service area/van order. Job invoices and progress claims (detailing job status and variations) can be produced at any time.

  2. Estimating

    Designed specifically for the service, construction and engineering industries, Micronet Estimating reduces the amount of time needed to prepare and price jobs as well as improving the accuracy of job estimates. Micronet Estimating integrates with the Micronet Job Costing and Micronet Distribution systems.

    • Easily maintain price books and estimate labour rates for the quick and accurate preparation of quotes.
    • Automatic price book calculations of item costs and installed labour rates assists estimators in calculating the labour required to complete work.
    • Store sub-estimate kits for future use in other estimates.
    • Completed jobs can be read into new estimates for re-quoting.
    • Perform ‘what if’ calculations to see what effect changing default labour rate charges, labour loading or material markups have on an overall estimate bid price.
    • Estimates can also be recalculated by using a ‘find and replace’ utility for when new cost prices or alternate items are submitted by your suppliers.
    • Project estimates can be divided into multiple stages. Each stage can store a summary of costs, quantities and charges for the labour, materials and up to 8 other user defined cost centres.
    • Micronet Estimating provides detailed reports that are easily customisable.
    • Transfer successful tender estimates into the Micronet Job Costing system. The job details, stages and budgets are created automatically and purchase orders can then be automatically created from the original estimate.
