“A small leak can sink a big ship.” Fulcrum allows you to capture 100% of the costs of converting raw materials to finished goods.
Fulcrum compares projected vs. actual costs to determine which jobs are most profitable, and which jobs require a price change at the quoting level.
Not every business or financial system is created equal. Fulcrum is configurable so you can capture exactly the data that is important to analyze and grow your business.
Reduce the labor burden spent manually entering data from one system to another. Fulcrum uses automation to gather data and feed it to the proper systems of record.
Job costing is a real-time summary and detail view for any item or job based on your specific labor, operation, and material costs. It helps manufacturers better understand exactly how much money each operation and job requires, so they know the exact cost for each job completed. In Fulcrum, all of this information is live, allowing you to step in and make adjustments to jobs if needed. Instead of reviewing monthly profit and loss statements to find that you're losing money on jobs, you can see the cost of every job down to the operation as it happens. Never wonder why you lost money on a job again.
Fulcrum's data flows seamlessly across the entire system, so you'll find that every module's information comes from multiple places. Job costing gets its live data from the digital job tracker. Material cost, labor cost, machine costs, and operation progress feed into job costing while an operation is in progress. Estimates for the jobs are auto-calculated from the BOM and routing. Notes, attachments, and item details auto-populate from quoting, sales orders, and inventory management. See how everything connects (schedule a demo).
Yes, yes you can. Key performance indicators display cost estimates versus actuals on the job costing page, automatically calculating the difference for you. If material, labor, or machine costs rise above estimated costs, you can elect to trigger a notification to relevant team members.
It depends on how you want to look at it. Fulcrum collects live data, seamlessly, but its magic is in how it aggregates that data to make it actionable for your shop. In the job's Cost Breakdown, you can find outliers that diminish your profit margins. Talk to sales if you want to dive deeper into detailed costing.
