Hard Dollar Announces Instant Visibility Into Project Progress and Performance

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - December 4, 2009) - Hard Dollar Corporation, the leader in Project Cost Management, today announced the release of Advanced Progress Tracking, adding instant visibility into progress and performance on planned activities, with side-by-side comparisons of the most critical factors that affect project success. Advanced Progress Tracking measures progress while increasing visibility to owners and contractors, increasing profits by 9% on average on every project, with real-time cost and productivity status and direct integration into finance.

Existing Hard Dollar users can leverage the system to view side-by-side estimate vs. progress comparisons with direct integration to accounting, without adding additional systems or infrastructure. "Users can proactively correct potential productivity issues with transparent visibility into production trends, truly managing the project," states Ron Babich, Hard Dollar VP of Sales and Marketing. "Accounting integration enables man hours, equipment hours, and quantities to be imported into accounting software for payroll, without duplicating entry. Owners and Construction Managers can now receive accurate information faster, satisfying regulatory and contractual requirements," said Babich.

Regardless of size, or the number of project tasks, Hard Dollar Advanced Progress Tracking provides everything needed to measure, monitor, and manage progress and performance. The user-friendly interface makes it simple to keep track of data that streamlines reporting, and drives billings, payments, and earned value. Additionally, decisions are expedited with remote data collection and timesheets from the field. Daily results reflect actual and forecasted job progress, without delays from the financial system.

Capture as-built information in an organized way so it can be leveraged for project status reporting, as well as analysis of past projects to improve future decision making. The historical database captures both estimated and as-built costs and productivity, each new job gets easier than the last -- and more profitable.
