Opera 3 CIS and  Job Costing

Pegasus CIS is a contract costing system that has been specifically written for small to medium-sized (SME) contractors in the construction and allied industries. It eases the administrative burden of running construction projects, whilst providing all the management tools necessary to ensure that all critical information is readily available to the management team.

The system allows direct costs to be input against a contract, as well as costs derived from labour timesheets, purchases, stock and sub-contractors. A wide range of analysis reports are available, offering views of the current status of contracts, including job performance and detailed profit analysis reports.

Pegasus CIS: Overview

 

Contract Sales Ledger

Pegasus CIS includes a self-contained Contract Sales Ledger that works in conjunction with the accounts Sales Ledger. The Contract Sales Ledger maintains details of the current Payment Applications, together with all previous Applications; it also contains information on current and cumulative revenue values together with retention, main contractor discount, contras etc. Payment Applications can be printed and certified, payments can be recorded, invoices generated and retentions tracked. When the payment is received it can be entered in batches and allocated to one or more Applications. For Applications, VAT is taken into account at time of payment. It is also possible to create standard invoices, where the VAT is recorded at the date of invoice.

Subcontractors Ledger

Subcontractor Applications for Payment can be entered, detailing both current and cumulative values of net, gross, discounts and retentions for the specified contract. When a Subcontractor Application for Payment is approved, it is possible to produce a Payment Certificate that can be sent to the subcontractor with the payment. There is also a separate posting routine for timesheet only subcontractors.

Labour costs

It is possible to enter employee timesheets directly into Pegasus CIS, post these costs to the contract and post these timesheets into the Payroll so that payslips are produced. The timesheet data-entry routines are fully optimised for fast entry of data, ideal for companies that need to process large data volumes. For companies that prefer to enter timesheets in the Payroll, it is possible to export them out of the Payroll and post them into Pegasus CIS.

Once the Payroll has been run it is possible to post the ‘on-costs’ into Pegasus CIS. This means that additional costs such as National Insurance, Pensions, CITB Levies etc can be posted back into the contracts. It is therefore possible to post labour to a contract as a charge-out rate, or as net or gross costs.

Contract purchasing

Pegasus CIS includes a Purchase Order Processing system that allows committed costs of a contract to be monitored by raising purchase orders against that contract. As deliveries are received and invoiced the purchase order is updated, maintaining an accurate picture of the committed costs. It is possible to arrange for deliveries to be made directly to site, knowing what is still to be delivered; all of which contributes to better site management. The system is flexible, so that it’s possible to turn off the Goods Received Notes section and simply raise purchase orders and match to the incoming purchase invoices. Purchase invoices that do not need to be directly related to a contract can be allocated directly to a nominal account.
The purchasing fully supports multi-currency, allowing you to raise purchase orders in currency and receive currency purchase invoices.

Procurement control

This is used to co-ordinate the purchasing of goods across the entire company, potentially against multiple Jobs and multiple Suppliers. Goods purchased using Procurement Control will be assigned to one or more Purchase Orders depending on the options selected.
This is intended to be used to process large volume orders quickly for delivery to a Job Site Address, Phase Site Address or Warehouse Address. If the Procurement is raised against a Bill of Requirements, this allows buyers to review the entire list of Job requirements and tag items (in full or partially) to be bought. This provides a rapid Job purchasing routine for buyers.

Plant hire

Purchase Orders can be raised for Hire of Plant supplied by external suppliers. Plant can be ordered against Jobs, which posts committed costs to that Job. It is possible to record “On Hire” and “Off Hire” dates so that plant does not remain on site unless required.

Stock Control

Stock can be Allocated, Reserved and Issued to a contract, posting relevant costs to the contract. When allocating stock to a contract it is possible to nominate the period in which that allocation is required. This is extremely useful where there is a requirement to plan stock issues to a contract based on when it will be required.

Monitoring stock levels, knowing where stock is located and knowing what needs to be ordered and when, are all elements managed within the Pegasus CIS Stock Control module.

Site Requisition

This option tracks requests coming in from site and allows available stock to be issued to the Job with an accompanying delivery note. The Site Requisitions can be entered, picked and approved. Once approved, they can be used to post the related stock issues and generate the Delivery Note for passing to the issuing stores. This provides a powerful yet controlled method of allowing stock to be requested from the site office.
