Integrated Project Budgeting and Forecasting

The new ETC feature adds to the steady growth of Claritas project budgeting and forecasting functionality, which has expanded over the last several quarters thanks to active customer input.

With Claritas, orgs build their Project forecasts “bottom up” at either the contract or task level. Claritas forecasts include monthly project employee and subcontractor hours by labor category and account, as well as monthly project ODCs, giving PMs a complete project forecast year by year, all on one screen.

In addition to supporting Microsoft Excel project budgets, Project Managers may also create and update their budgets from project resource forecasts built right within Claritas. They then instantly capture their current annual project forecast as new ETC or baseline budgets.


Fully Burdened Labor Reporting with No Consulting Investment

The Claritas Single Project View automatically calculates Fully Burdened Labor Costs by period and year, including real-time fully burdened hourly labor rates – the first such preconfigured report for Deltek and QuickBooks available without consulting.
