Why use the Job Costing feature?

When we first created Buddy Punch, our goal was to design an employee scheduling software that would replace physical and online time sheets, scale with various business sizes, and increase the accountability and integrity of your team. We soon realized that a job costing feature would help immensely with this – allowing business owners to get a bird’s eye view of how much time and money is being spent on each remote job. From there, you can make informed decisions that will effect your budgeting and pricing as you optimize your cash flow.
