Maximise Profits with Resource Management

It’s simple to register and sell resources – which you can define as either people or machines. Easily combine related resources into one group, or track them all individually. However you choose to track, you’ll get a complete overview of your capacity for each resource, so that you can monitor its availability and planned costs on your orders and quotations.


Complete Visibility Every Step of The Way

Manage long-term projects that involve the use of employee labour hours, machine hours, inventory items, and any other type of usage. Get an overview of not only individual jobs, but also the allocation of employees, machinery, and other resources that are being used in all projects to allow you to schedule or plan capacity within your business, without leaving the Business Central system.


Manage The Profitability of a Job with Ease

Enter tasks for your job, so you can specify everything that must be done to complete it. Plan capacity, budget requirements for resources, items and other costs, as well as whether they should be billed. From Job processing screens, you can upload information live from Excel; add job planning information or update existing planned costs or revenue.

Properly Manage Jobs with Time Sheets

Properly Manage Jobs with Time Sheets

Use time sheet to track absences and to track time and resources that are spent on a project. With time management, you can identify issues early and avoid delays or cost overruns. With time sheets, it is simple to report time usage for an individual or a machine, and a manager can review the usage and its allocation for more effective ways of working.

Easily Manage Supplies For Any Job

Easily Manage Supplies For Any Job

Managing project supplies of items, services and expenses is an integral aspect of all jobs. You can use inventory quantities or make job-specific purchases using purchase orders or purchase invoices. For example, a service job on a computer requires a new disk. You create a purchase invoice to buy a new disk and record the job that it will be used on.

Easy Setup of Work in Progress Calculations

Easy Setup of Work in Progress Calculations

As a job progresses, materials, resources and other expenses are consumed and must be posted to the job. Work in Progress (WIP) is a feature that enables you to estimate the financial value of jobs in the general ledger while the jobs are ongoing. Create a job WIP method that reflects your needs and set it as the default job WIP calculation method.

Speedy Invoicing of Completed Jobs

Speedy Invoicing of Completed Jobs

During the project, job costs from resource usage, materials, and job-related purchases can accumulate. As the job progresses, these transactions get posted to the job journal. When invoicing, you can invoice the whole job or selected billable lines. Plus, it can be done once the job is complete or at certain intervals based on your invoicing schedule.


Run Your Business Anytime and Anywhere

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central operates where you need it, when you need it. No matter where you are at any given time, you can easily monitor job progress and performance from the palm of your hand.
