all the information necessary to keep jobs on track and spot any potential cost
Accurate and timely monitoring of job costs and profitability can make or break

with completely up-to-date information. Tight integration with other Spectrum?modules
allows updates to Job Cost virtually as soon as information is entered into other

resolutionóby date and detail in an organized, uniform, easy-to-access system.
Spectrum's Project Management Software provides a fully integrated process for managing
workflow. Project Management tracks all items that must be fulfilled under a contract,
plus anything else that must be tracked during the job. Designed to coordinate details
throughout an organization, Spectrum Construction Project Management Software places
vital information and documentation at the users' fingertips instantly.
Imaging technology has been around for years. With the advent of Spectrum?Document
Imaging, however, it's now practical for construction management. That's because
Document Imaging is not just an add-on. With Spectrum Construction Management Software,
it's fully integrated, built in from the ground up.
Spectrum Document Imaging lets you incorporate documents - AP invoices, time cards,
change orders, etc. - into your everyday workflow. For example, when a vendor invoice
arrives, you immediately enter it into Spectrum, press the Image button and put
the invoice into the scanner. The invoice is scanned and the image is automatically
indexed and attached to the invoice. Automatic indexing eliminates the possibility
of error. Reporting is immediately available to show pending invoices, and how long
they've been outstanding (very helpful at month end for WIP and for cash requirements
reporting). The approver - a Project Manager, for example - receives an email announcing
that invoices are ready for approval. The approver goes to the invoice approval
screen to view pending invoices. Thanks to Document Imaging, the approver can view
the original invoice on screen and can even attach notes to the invoice with questions
or instructions. Once approved, the invoices are routed back to accounting for payment.
