Overview

We hear from contractors all the time about how they want better visibility into their labor costs without staying up all night wading through spreadsheets to get it.

By using Workyard to track employee time, our software will automatically generate labor cost reports for you to view.

Workyard takes into account hours worked, worker's comp costs, and overtime rules, then segments those costs by customer, project, employee, and cost code. With Workyard you'll never be in the dark about your labor costs again.

Workyard allows you to see your costs through multiple views:

The summary view allows you to see labor costs by projects.

By clicking into individual projects you can see labor costs by employee and cost code.

Setup

In order to use the cost allocation report, you'll need to set up your projects and have employees submit time cards for those projects.

Projects

Navigate to the Manage Projects menu option. Once in the Manage Projects section, create a project and assign a customer, job site(s), and cost code(s).

Cost Codes

You can even more precisely report on your costs by allowing your employees to tag hours worked to individual cost codes. To set up cost codes navigate to the Manage Projects section and select Cost Codes.

Time Cards

Once you've set up projects and cost codes, workers can tag their time cards to them in just a few taps.
