InFocus by Clearview is an enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution for the architecture and engineering (A/E) industry, with project management and planning, accounting, billing, reporting, and time & expense tracking capabilities.
InFocus offers users a central project management tool, incorporating project planning, job and employee scheduling, billing reviews, budgeting, and more. Users can view an overview of the full project, with the ability to drill down for more detail with a single click, and fully customize charts from predefined or user-defined packs. The bill review function allows users to make line item adjustments, set bill statuses, move transactions from project to project, make comments for invoices, and provide instructions to billers. Users can also manage contracts and budgets, setting levels, amounts, and applying formulas, with visual representation of this information automatically updated at the bottom of the page. In the scheduling tab, users are given real time access to resource allocations and project schedules, with the ability to adjust these as necessary. Users can also build their project team, add and manage contacts, upload documents, and edit project addresses.
InFocus can also be used in time and expense tracking for projects, with a mobile-optimized web app allowing users to submit time and expense sheets on the go. Standard and custom date ranges are supported, including weekly, biweekly, and semi-monthly, and a stopwatch timer is built in to each timesheet row for time tracking. Users can add comments to timesheets, for a single day or full timesheet period. Multi-level approval processes can be set up, with timesheet approvers assigned to individual employees, and second level approvals assigned to accounting personnel, with a log kept of approved and rejected timesheets.
