Job Costing System

The MSS Job Costing System provides the user with detailed costs and billing information for a job. MSS Job Costing provides the user with the tools to make informed decisions and increase Job profitability.

Full integration with the other MSS systems allows for the automated production of job costing and quotes using the latest stock prices and product structures. Once a job has been accepted, it can be automatically invoiced without having to re-enter information.

The MSS Job/Work In Progress Costing system was designed specifically for the IBM AS/400 range of computers, hence many of the outstanding features of the AS/400 have been incorporated in the software, e.g. help screens, ease-of-use menus, security, etc.

The system is extremely flexible in that the user may design/tailor many aspects of the module operation to suit the company environment.
