Extensive Project & Job Cost Capabilities
Track purchases against projects with budget checking throughout the entire purchasing process.
When you need to purchase, rent, or contract with some external resource to meet your project goal or to complete a job, it’s vital to ensure the process follows the same procurement workflow that other direct and indirect spend follows so that it can be managed and tracked. By maximizing pre-approved spend, you gain complete visibility of your project and job costs and the control you need to ensure compliance.

It allows you to track procurement costs as they move through the system from requisitions to purchase orders to invoices. WorkPlace provides real-time budget management to understand budget impact to the project or job before approval, so you will know whether there’s sufficient budget before committing spend.
