Import Direct Costs and Invoice Payments Across All Projects


To import the job cost transactions created in [Your ERP Integration] to view ERP direct costs detail in a Procore budget.


If your Procore company account is integrated with [Your ERP Integration], you now have the ability to import job cost transaction data from [Your ERP Integration]. Once imported, the values of those transactions can be viewed in the 'Direct Costs' column on a budget line item. In addition, users who are assigned the appropriate granular permission can also click the values in the 'Direct Costs' column in the budget tool to open a window showing detailed information about the item.

This feature provides users who have the Procore + [Your ERP Integration] integration with the following features and benefits:

  • Add a 'Direct Costs' source column to your Procore project's budget view
    Provides authorized users with the ability to add a 'Direct Costs' column to your project's budget view. 
  • Configure which direct costs appear in a given budget view column
    Provides authorized users with the ability to configure which direct costs appear in each column with a 'Direct Costs' source. For the integration with [Your ERP Integration], direct costs of the following types are available to configure: 
    • Subcontractor Invoices: These costs come from [Your ERP Integration] with an associated commitment.
    • Invoices: These direct costs come from [Your ERP Integration] without an associated commitment.
    • Expenses: These direct costs come from [Your ERP Integration].
    • Payroll: These direct costs come from [Your ERP Integration].
  • Track [Your ERP Integration] direct costs in a Procore budget
    Once the 'Direct Costs' column has been added to a budget view, project users with access permissions to the budget can view the lump-sum totals from the [Your ERP Integration] job cost transactions as a direct cost value on a budget line item. The value in this column shows your project's 'Direct Costs' total for all items in the 'Pending', 'Revise and Resubmit', and 'Approved' status. Note: An accounting approver can sync the job cost transaction details from the [Your ERP Integration] on the Job Costs tab of the ERP Integrations tool.
  • View direct cost transaction detail on a budget line item
    Project users with the 'View Direct Cost Details' granular permission enabled on their permission template can click the hyperlink in the Direct Costs column of a budget line item to open the direct cost's details in a popup window. This granular permission is located in the 'Budget' section when configuring a permission template.
