You may have heard me say it before, but QuickBooks Online (QBO) is a must for small businesses. Besides delivering powerful solutions to your everyday needs and transforming the way you do business, Intuit is constantly looking to improve the product to provide new features just about every month.

The latest addition provides next-level insight into which projects are worth pursuing, setting the stage for long-term growth and success in your business. Here’s the latest new feature, and, of course, Sound Business Services (SBS) is here to help you every step of the way.

Having Trouble Projecting a Project’s Merit? Project Profitability is Your Lifeline

As a small business owner, time is everything and acquiring new business is almost always a goal. In this pursuit, we often take on clients and projects that turn out to be a bad fit, hurting our bottom line and wasting our time.

Imagine a tool that could provide a solution to this conundrum. There is one – Project Profitability!

With Project Profitability, you can discover which projects are worth your time and which are best left off your plate. That’s right … no more spending lots of time, energy and hard work on projects, only to become a complete waste and halt your growth.

How it Works

Now, within QuickBooks Online Plus or Advanced, you get a comprehensive picture of just how much profit each project is churning. Important criteria, such as project expenses, income and labor costs, are all tracked to determine if the project is worth your time and effort. In turn, this helps SBS get you deeper data and better decision-making, as we look to take your business to the next level.

Here are some examples of how project profitability works.
