Let's face it, job costing isn’t the funniest thing in the world, but it is important to the profitability of a company. Job Costing in QuickBooks makes the process easier but you still have to get all the time, job and work data in the system. That’s where ClockShark can help.

All the time punches need to have the right codes to get accurate job costing in QuickBooks. That’s hard to do with paper timesheets because with multiple jobs and tasks there’s a lot of codes to remember. What that job 213 or 231? Even if everyone remembers the right codes, do they all have great handwriting? Is that a 5 or a 7? ClockShark keeps all your codes nice and tidy while giving your employees an easy way to find the right jobs and tasks. There is even a search box to make it even easier to find the right option. Have your guys focus on doing good work. Let the sharks do the remembering.
Accurate job costing in QuickBooks starts with having complete data. Clocking in with ClockShark starts with selecting a Job (Customer) and Task (Service Item) before the clock in button will work. That's true on the mobile apps and the web time clock. It only takes a few taps on the smartphone so it’s easy for your employees, but it gives you all the data you need to do job costing in QuickBooks.
We know that job costing in QuickBooks requires your employees to use the right codes for the jobs and tasks they do. A good way to help with that is by only showing them the right options in the time card app. You can customize which tasks show up under which jobs and to which employees. With fewer options available when clocking in or switching tasks the possibility of picking the wrong option goes down. It’s almost like having a watchdog around to stop problems before they ever get started. Except it's a shark. A watchshark!
