It is imperative to know your costs accurately at any time as contracts, additional works and ongoing periodic work blur with ongoing payments of wages, payroll oncosts, subcontractors and suppliers. Your costing may even include inventory and other costs. Infoware provides the tools to expedite your processing as well as accurate and quick reporting giving you the time to review and manage not only your jobs but slice and dice these by contract managers, branch offices, companies and more to make sure you are achieving margins across all areas of your business.
In addition to construction industry focused clients, due to Infoware’s job costing flexibility it is used in a number of other industries including engineering, service providers, factories, commodity trading and farming.
Infoware Job Costing Benefits
Take control, make better decisions and increase profitability with Infoware Services; our fully-integrated cleaning industry software solution including job costing, rostering and purchasing with industry specific efficiencies and compliance.
Payroll & Rosters
Payroll often requires significant effort with some systems. Infoware provides web based job costed payroll rosters. Provide your contract managers with the tools to manage their rosters. Pays default from rosters so then once again provide your contract managers with tools to ONLY enter any payroll differences to rosters – removing a lot of repetitive effort each pay run.
Labour to Sales Analysis
Track your labour to sales ratios for jobs and sub-jobs and ensure all extra ‘do and charge’ jobs are invoiced correctly, preventing revenue leakage.
The other hidden cost of payroll administration is data preparation.
Infoware’s payroll also includes an award interpreter so no timesheet data preparation is needed. Enter start and finish times and Infoware calculates normal, penalty hours and allowances
Reflect the true cost of wages in job costed P&L’s
There are many on-costs to be added to an employee’s wage to provide the true hourly cost. Infoware calculates the on-costs automatically and accurately – not only superannuation, payroll tax, annual leave and workers comp, but other costs you may wish to recover such as public liability and overheads.
Infoware’s Purchasing component
Allows you to easily create purchase orders, contract variations, goods receipts and invoices across multi jobs, cost centres and even companies. Review and approve Purchase Orders and Invoices while onsite (or anywhere via the web) including viewing invoice images when combined with Infoware’s i4 DocLink + OCR.
Other Infoware options include generation of RCTI’s [recipient created tax invoices] from timesheets and generation of standing orders for subcontractors.
Infoware’s Tabular P&L is our most popular P&L reporting format

Business can become complex, quickly
You start a business with a few jobs and the business keeps growing. Soon there are jobs being looked after by more than one contract service manager (CSM). Then you start a regional hub and the growth continues.
Comparison Actuals vs Budgets
Infoware provides reporting actuals vs budgets. You can even upload revised budgets as required. As an example, you can compare Sept revised budget vs Dec revised budget.
Infoware allows reporting by primary job and sub jobs. For cleaners and labour focused industries this can track original contract, additional revenue and periodic work. Reporting can be consolidated by primary jobs or individual job.
i4 Query Report Writer & Excel i4 Plugin
We believe to be the most user friendly and powerful report writer available. Design your own reports – from simple lists like a CSM viewing their current list of employees & leave entitlements; to more advanced reports such as ranking the differences between rosters and timesheets, so you can focus only on exceptions for payroll approval.
