I'm new to using Quickbooks (Enterprise 16, Contractor) for construction.
We are wanting to improve our job cost tracking capabilities. Currently we have a short item list, with items for Subs, Material, Misc, and then a variety of Direct Labor items.
We want to break out costs according to job phases. I see two possibilities – entering items for phases, with items below them for Subs, Material, etc. This is what the company has done in the past, and then abandoned.
Or, entering sub-jobs for phases. We would keep our estimate that we bill AR off of for the top level job, but enter cost estimates on the sub-jobs. This seems like a better way to go to me.
Does anyone who has used Quickbooks have a comment, or issues I should consider?
