Seamless integration from all contract-related Summit modules ensures quick access to cost, value, budget, and committed cost information in numerous user-definable layouts.

A multi-level cost structure allows cost/budget reporting and enquiries at summary, transaction, and intermediate levels using the drill down feature to step down through the levels.

In addition, two further parallel cost structures can be defined, allowing the cost data to be viewed from three different perspectives.

Contract and Sundry Sales Ledger

Contracting is unique in the types of transactions it requires to process a “sale”. In addition, the way these transactions affect the management accounts varies from company to company. Using our robust experience in the contracting sector, RedSky has created a very flexible contract sales ledger.

The ledger is fully parameter-driven, which allows users to configure the business’ transaction types and how they affect the system. Once defined, these rules are specified to apply to future transactions (e.g. applications are memoranda only and not subject to VAT).

  • Definable transaction types, including Advance payments, Applications, Internal and External Valuations, Invoices, Cash and Credit Notes
  • Full tracking of application, valuation, cash with retention, final invoices, retention and release with aged analysis

  • 30-character alpha/numeric codes for customers aged debtor analysis
  • Integration to Summit Service Management

  • Label printing
  • Variable history file
