Manage your job costing activities in relation to your accounting data base. Lennox Computers Business Software provides extensive abilities to record labour, materials, sub-contract, plant hire and diverse additional costs against job numbers, and cost items within job accounts.
LILAC Job Costing Software goes much further than simple job costing for the more sophisticated contracting enterprise, with full Contract Administration, Progress Claim Generation & tracking, Budget Comparison, Job Profitability, Work-in-Progress accounting with accrual, Profit and Loss, and Balance Sheet reporting.
LILAC is a powerful "double-entry" accounting system. In contrast to how it sounds this means that the operator enters transactions once, and the software applies further accounting entries, twice (or more), to achieve all the required aspects of the transaction without any re-keying or reprocessing.
This means that job-cost analysis can be captured as the "other-side" of the entries processed to the creditors ledger for supplier and sub-contractor accounts, to the payroll ledger for employee labour costing, and to the Inventory ledger (where required) for material an parts usage.
A job cost accounting system which is driven by the natural processing of essential accounting source documents such as supplier invoices and employee time cards is a minimum effort costing system with almost no reprocessing of data.
The LILAC Construction & Contracting module is not an isolated application. Potentially it can be combined with any and all the other extensive features of the LILAC package such as Inventory & Stock Control, Labour Hire Invoicing, Plant Hire & Management, Production & Manufacturing Accounting.
These capabilities taken together with LILAC's strong multi-entity accounting and powerful consolidation features make it an excellent fit for the enterprise with multiple divisions and disparate operations.
