The final feature of the Products & Materials Add-On Package is automated job costing of Materials. Once the Installed Quantities of Materials on the Project have been entered, improveit 360 will auto-create a Project Cost record with a Type of Materials. This allows your Production team to get a jump start on calculating Profit on each and every job!
