Film Production Advertising Creative Industry Job costing and budgeting profitability reporting

Started by Jenny Lee -   in Find a Developer

We have a few clients in the production/creative industry that require a budgeting tool for jobs that integrates with Xero and have good profitability reporting.

Currently the clients use Show Biz that does not integrate with Xero but have great budgeting templates.

We are struggling to find add-ons that do this well, especially as this industry does not use timesheets. It would also work for the construction industry too, as crew are hired and have overtime rates but are not actual employees. We would love to find a developer that can help with making an integration with ShowBiz or can develop something that has all these functions.

We would need to track budget vs actuals, and still easily be able to import rates and different costs specific to filming and production.

Also need detailed profitability report ( and where producers can invoice and send quotes) And have good integration with Xero for invoices in sales and purchases.

Thanks so much
