All businesses and their projects are different. Whether it’s a large organisation with ERP (enterprise resource planning), Coins or SAP, or smaller businesses with less back-office systems, and all with external and internal budgets to handle. Businesses have sight of both high-level corporate statutory accounts and costings on-site, but what about what is happening in the middle?
These figures could be at your team’s fingertips as a clear and consistent way to identify trends and get a transparent overview of projects for everyone, from asset owners to project managers. The detail provided at the middle-level provides a real-time, centralised programme view of aggregate project activity. This is crucial for triggering alarms that give early warning to where contract prices may exceed budgets, or for forecasting and earned value analysis and contingency management. It is this part of the organisation that covers baseline change governance and structured stakeholder consultations and approvals.
Our budget and forecasting tool tpCONTROL bridges project cost estimating, cost capture and cost management to the risk and management, forecasting and central financial functions managed by your ERP by providing transparent budgeting and contingency management. Many organisations attempt to bridge the gap between the high-level and granular with Microsoft Excel, emails and bespoke stationary.
tpCONTROL provides an intuitive, secure, compliant and accessible web-based alternative. A system that is tailored to your processes and your requirements, and where budgetary information can be generated at the click of a button. The detail provided at the middle-level teams provides a real-time, centralised programme view of aggregate project activity.
At a granular level, efficient management of cost estimates, the bill of quantities and specifications is the ideal practice to achieve thorough clarity for existing and future projects. With earned value capabilities and interfaces with both contract management and ERP solutions, tpCONTROL affords unbroken financial controls from site-office to stakeholder.
Any organisation can be managing numerous self-contained projects on differing terms and spanning multiple financial years. With tpCONTROL, the creation of estimates and price schedules; multi-party reporting requirements and cost capture, and financial performance is just an automated report away.
