Job Cost Reporting
We have deployed several different custom reports and modules in order to bring job cost reporting to companies who require it. Built on the back of the Odoo Analytic Accounting Module, we sequence automate, and default the right fields to bring together the total picture for a job based business.
Purchase to Invoice
One of the most important pieces of our job shop solution is to give deep visibility to the purchase of materials for the purposes of a job, from purchase, to delivery, to invoicing.
Often, the nature of a job shop is that no two jobs are exactly the same. We've extended modules like Equipment, Maintenance, and Manufacturing to include the capturing of custom requirements for each job created.
WIP to COGS
If your job cost solution requires the storing of balance sheet values during processing, we are here to help. We have deployed multiple different WIP models.
Standard Labor Costing
A standard labor costing module will typically build a WIP balance based on "expected" duration of labor activities either using the Odoo manufacturing or timesheets module.
Hourly Labor Costing
We have built solutions that value approved timesheet data in manufacturing or in the projects module to cost and build a WIP balance for ongoing jobs.
Material purchased for jobs can directly debit your WIP account upon receipt, and the totals will credit upon the final invoice of the job.
If your job shop stores, repairs, or handles equipment you may want to track that equipment by customer, serial number, dimensions, model numbers, etc.
Many job shops have specialized machinery that they need to maintain and monitor to ensure that they do not have downtime. SSI has experience building Preventative Maintenance processes in Odoo.
We have experience building storage and equipment maintenance processes for multi-location companies.
We have helped our clients implement scheduling concepts in Odoo in both the Projects and Manufacturing apps to keep their jobs on schedule.
Direct Job Buy
Our job shop customers have the ability to purchase both Material and Labor to the jobs which can speed up the Purchase Order process for Sub-Contract labor or services (ex. Hot Shot Driver).
One component of most job shops that we have worked with is the need to issue an RFQ (Draft PO) before the Sale Order is confirmed. We have enabled this workflow by modifying Odoo's procurement process to link the Sale Order line to the Purchase Order line even before the order is confirmed. This functionality allows your sales team to build a full project quote with acknowledgements and timelines in hand from the required vendors for the job.
