Real-time variance and deviation analysis

The more specific the project progress reports, the more control you will have over the project, as there will be more time to make any required modifications. Our recommendation is you perform this kind of analysis at least on a monthly basis. You can also schedule them weekly and daily for certain projects that require more complex analysis approaches.

Perform a Variables Analysis. Examine the overall project and generate critical reports to predict the outcome of each project with BrickControl.

Analyze deviations according to their nature, such as labor, materials, etc.

How do we find the cause of construction project variances? With our software, you will be able to perform a building variance analysis according to the type of resource that is associated with any deviation, in order to easily find the cause and its corresponding budget item.

Variations on a construction site can be related to labor, construction material supplies, vendor prices, and many other factors. BrickControl gives you all the information to optimize your project development in real-time.

Access the historical information of the prices related to suppliers and workers

Visualize expense invoices, timesheets, and budget changes that caused or are currently provoking deviations from the original project estimate.

Our comprehensive suite of Construction Contractor Management features offers all the historical records of external suppliers’ services.

With our construction cost databases features, you will be able to track and compare construction material costs.

Detailed analysis of deviations

Detailed budget variance analysis

Check whether the deviations are due to variations in regards to the actual amount of materials and resources used in the project or price variations. Also, you can filter the information according to the budget’s subdivisions. You will be able to identify to which resource the deviation is associated to, and take corrective measures.

Ease of use and simplicity in terms of cost allocation

By presenting the allocation of costs in a simple way, the chances of error due to the lack of knowledge in regards to the budget structure are minimized, and the obtaining of information for the execution of the deviation analysis is optimized.

Correlation of deviations and profits

Correlation of deviations and profits

Keep in mind at all times the project profitability BrickControl calculates the profits by subtracting the real cost of execution from the sale value.
