Ready to make better planning and budgeting decisions? With Resource Estimates, you can use your own data to easily project how much a task activity will cost and how long it'll take to complete.
Use your own historical data
Track estimated resource costs based on historical work—broken out by labor, equipment, material, and other. For example, Cartegraph will check to see if you've ever completed a specific task on an asset—Flush on Water Hydrant HYD-494—and then generate an estimate based on that data. The more times you flush that hydrant, the more accurate your estimates will be.
Create custom estimates
Manually set resource estimates for any asset and activity combination. The next time a task is created for that specific combination, Cartegraph will generate an estimate based on your settings.
Estimate per unit
Distribute resource estimates by a unit to account for assets of various sizes, like a large park vs. the lawn outside the city hall.
Visualize your data
We've added charts as a new default layout section on tasks and work orders, so you can compare Estimated vs. Actual costs across all four resource types—and view the total of those resources.
• Task Estimates vs. Actuals Cost Comparison: Display estimate and actual costs broken out by resource type for the past year.
• Task Totals: Estimate vs Actual: Display the estimate and actual total cost for the past year.
• Work Order Estimates vs. Actuals Cost Comparison: Display estimate and actual costs broken out by resource type for the past year.
• Work Order Totals: Estimate vs. Actual: Display the estimate and actual total cost for the past year.
