Job Costing

ActIn Time can provide you with a fully integrated Job Costing Solution.

Monitoring costs on the shop floor can be been made much simpler with the introduction of our integrated job costing solution. Not only does it allow costing by job, but it also gives you the flexibility of costing by department, individual employee and specific operation. We’re able to give you a complete overview of the information collected by giving you performance comparison reports. In doing so, you can check on the effectiveness of your employees and highlight areas for improvement.

Logging job details couldn't be easier!

Simple, easy and flexible, this solution could transform how you run your operation. To use it, an employee simply presses the clearly marked ‘job start’ or ‘job stop’ function buttons on the data collection terminal and follows a series of simple requests such as ‘enter job number’ or ‘enter operation’. The terminal keypad may be used, although an increasing number of businesses choose to use barcode scanners for increased efficiency.


The data collected by the terminal is passed directly to the ActIn Time software making it instantly available for reports and enquiries. With clear identification for each job and operation, our solution lets you drill down to the exact layer of information you need, making it easy to compare performance and address areas where productivity can be improved.

The new data collection terminals run scripts designed specifically for your business ensuring that the solution provided is perfect for you.




There are no limits to the amount of job numbers you can create. The introduction of scripting could help create hundreds of job numbers in bulk.
