Does this sound familiar?
Creating monthly cost reports is time-consuming. Data is held in multiple spreadsheets and some reports rely on accounts data that is in arrears.
We're not sure if we're making or losing money on our jobs, until they're completed. It's then too late to take corrective action.
We can't easily see how all our projects are performing as a whole. This makes it hard to plan cashflow and understand our liabilities.
Chalkstring can help.
