The following configurations affect all projects across the company. These include setting up your labor pool, categories and departments. In addition you also set up project types and stages.

Setup Contract Type:

Each project will need a contract type. The contract type is used to determine the revenue recognition parameters throughout the project life. When a project is set up (see Step 4) you will be prompted to select a contract type.

Setup Labor Categories and Labor Rates:

Labor Categories and Labor Rates are determined by management. These labor categories are standard labor categories for your company and are common across multiple projects.

Select Labor Categories

The Labor Code is mapped to your time keeping system. As payroll hours are submitted, they are used to track hours on the project to provide budget to actual reports. This information is used for budget to actual reports and revenue recognition. The Default Rate is established for the labor category. As a project is created, the budget will use this default rate. This rate can be overridden on a particular project.

Setup Project Pipelines:

Project stages are for resource forecasting. It include projects won (which will require resources as defined in the project plan) and an estimate of potential projects and the resources that will be needed if these projects are “won”.

RevLock allows you to enter various stages and weighted probabilities for each stage. The weighted probability is used to estimate additional resource requirements.
