Abtrac’s Job/Project Management suite has plenty of fields available to build a detailed, real-time analysis of your job/project progress and profitability. It is something that sets us apart from our competitors.
But before you get carried away with Milestones, Scheduling, Tasks and Budgets…spare some time for the humble Job/Project Status.
It crops up in quite a few reports, and you’ll probably find it pretty handy.
Keep it simple when using job status, between 3 – 6 options are usually plenty. Something basic like “Not Confirmed, In Progress, Started, On Hold, Completed” is often useful. Rather than micro-managing the status; you can add more detail in the Tasks(Stages) screen if needed.
