JANUS is a cloud-based cost control solution which includes modules for change management, manpower cost control, travel & expense cost tracking, and more. The system is designed to be used by project cost analysts & engineers, estimators, project accountants, and project management organizations.
The change and contingency drawdown management module in JANUS allows users to send, capture, and record change orders, with change status reporting by work breakdown structure (WBS). The sorting and grouping capabilities enable the identification of which WBSs are affected, and users can identify problem areas from granular, medium, and high levels. The master material and equipment list (MEL) gives users tools for estimating, time phased budgeting, and actual cost reporting. Multiple currencies can be managed, giving support for international organizations and projects. Reporting is standardized across all project phases, and schedules and costs are integrated at the lineitem level.
The manpower cost control module includes a range of standard reports for identifying problem areas, including revealing any unauthorized personnel on projects, as well as a proprietary algorithm for time phase forecasting. JANUS also includes an optional module for tracking travel and expense costs, which offers multiple forecasting options and allows users to identify projected peak and lag months.
