What is Construction Project Dashboard Software?

Understanding if your projects are profitable is key to driving your business to great outcomes, but understanding and tracking costs is messy and inaccurate – until now.

LiveCosts is a proven construction project dashboard software solution for boosting profitability. We provide your business with simple dashboards of key cost data so you understand how your project is performing against its budget in real time.


Break Projects Down Into Multiple Budgets

Do you need to report on how the “Substructure’”, or “1st Fix”, or any other element of your project has performed?

LiveCosts can create multiple smaller budgets within each of your projects to drill deeper into how each element of your project is performing.

LiveCosts can analyse project cost performance at any level of detail across your projects and provide dashboards at the element level too.

Manage Committed Construction Costs

In any project, you will make financial commitments to your suppliers or subcontractors. In many situations it can take some time from when a commitment is made until the invoice is received which creates a lag in cost information – this is often managed by spreadsheets.

LiveCosts provides a construction-based purchasing system that tracks the cost from its commitment through to its final invoice so you easily understand your position at all times.
