By | August 30, 2014

Handling projects right from their inception to their logical ends can be a cumbersome and tedious task. An ERP software helps you to get a clear picture of the project by helping you with job costing, functionality, integration, operations and to improve overall efficiency of the manpower.

New Stuff: Discrete / Process Manufacturing

In this blog post, we will point out the features about the contract maintenance of SAGE ERP PJC module.

Before proceeding further, let us take a look at the important factors in a project job costing application, namely,

Material, Manpower, Estimates, Machinery, Contractors, Overhead costs, Miscellaneous etc.

While using PJC contract maintenance of SAGE ERP, we see the possible outcome of a project’s completion in terms of values and figures.

Here is how we go to Contract maintenance form.


This module helps you to input opening figures and compare them with the actual figures. Following are the features of Contract Maintenance in SAGE ERP.

  • Add Contracts to your project and job costing system.
  • Assign Cost categories like estimates, actuals etc. to your projects and resources (labour, employee).
  • At any time during the project, you would see estimate revenues and expenses. If needed, retain age settings can be done.
  • Name the status of project as open, approved, estimate, on hold, completed and closed. (Shown in picture below.)
  • You can also add additional information for your projects via optional fields.
  • For better view, choose tree view and reports on every project and its transactions are available.


In the above picture, you can see all the necessary elements required to maintain a project job function and costing. A tree view at the left of the form is a user-friendly to understand the project and its tasks. Four tabs on the form display the contract and project details with optional fields. Total tab is where you get the figures as estimates, Actuals, recognized and stored.

There are more features of SAGE ERP PJC module which help with costs of allocation of manpower, material and machinery. We will discuss those in the next blog post.
