We help you prepare ... even when you don't know what's coming.


Solutions -> Software Components -> Projects/Contracts/Jobs
Flexibility and control from start to finish.

The Finesse Projects/Contracts/Jobs module helps you manage every aspect of your project from business development, estimating, engineering and project set-up to procurement, production, shipping, installation, service and warranty.

Using an unlimited work breakdown structure (WBS), you have the flexibility to define each phase, task and sub-task of any project, contract or job. All of your costs, including labor, materials, outside processing, work in process (WIP), overhead and other expenses, are captured at each WBS level for immediate or future analysis. And inventory may be segregated by project, task or manufacturing process.

The Projects Module keeps you in control by managing deliverables, milestones, progress billings, budgets and percent complete, as well as any other user-defined events, according to the terms and conditions of your contracts. Powerful interactive analysis screens detail the exact status of all project activities across your enterprise, so you never have to guess.

Unlike most other systems, which only allow you to choose one cost type for budgeting and cost tracking and then individually import/ export information to get others, Finesse concurrently compiles six different cost types: actual, average, standard, level, FIFO and LIFO. This tremendous flexibility makes it easy for you to get all the information you need. And if you work with the government, Finesse will accommodate the different contract and invoicing types required. In addition, Finesse incorporates both aerospace and defense cost accounting standards (CAS), 10-key element manufacturing and reporting, as well as all government costing and reporting requirements.

The Projects module is so flexible, you can view every aspect of your project at any time and get up-to-the-minute information you need any way you want it from start to finish. As a result, Finesse helps you track variances and stay within your budget. Plus, it lets you add alerts and rules into system and when you do vary, the system will automatically let you know the moment it happens.

Finesse also gives you the ability to do "what if" analysis for single, multiple or all projects ­ before or after they're in-house. So you can project delivery dates for new orders based on current jobs and material lead times, anticipate possible schedule changes, respond to customer changes and control manufacturing better than ever.
