Projects insights: smarter, simpler

"Thanks to the Profit on projects widget, we now have a clear idea of costs and know exactly what to charge our customers. It also helps us determine a fair price for future projects." - Kim Deman, Muylle-Gadeyne

At Work Smarter this year, we launched the new Profit margin for projects.  This new widget gave a clear overview of costs, revenue and profit per project. And although we were proud by the warm reactions we received, we solemnly swore to continue working on improvements as well.

           Your profit per project can now be found in a new widget, which gathers all essential project financials in one place. Get a clear idea of your budget, profit margin and working hours!

Stay in control of your projects: the main benefits

 So, one central place for all your project insights. The advantages are plentifold.

Not only will you effortlessly keep tabs on your budget and profit margin, but you'll also be able to intervene when and where you have to. At risk of going over budget? Contact your customer to look for a solution, or simply adjust things internally. At any moment, you'll remain transparent towards your team and your customers. 

Another major benefit: as you always see how much budget was spent, you'll get a clear prediction of where your project will end, budget-wise.

Where do you find your project financials?

The new widget can be found on the overview page of a project.  It helps answer crucial questions like:

  1. How many hours have you spent on a project?
  2. What is the total customer budget, and how much was spent already?
  3. How many costs did you make on hours and materials?
  4. How much profit will you have at the end of the project?

A clear overview is one thing, but sometimes, you also want to dive into the details of a project.   What could have been more efficient? Which milestone took up too much time and why? Which team member spent too much time on a given task? Well: drawing lessons from current projects and improving towards the future was never this easy. 

If you click on 'Details' for tracked time, you'll see an overview of all timetracking elements added for this project. You'll also be able to filter on date, user and work type.

Through Details for Profit, you'll see costs, revenue and profit margin per milestone in your project.  For each milestone, you can check the performance and profitability of each team member, or even the profitability per task type.
