The Causeway Contractors Plant Management system is a powerful and flexible business management system, designed specifically for the contractor who owns plant, needs to cost plant to contracts, hires to external customers and rehires from external suppliers. It is the market leading solution for the total control and management of all plant and machinery, throughout the asset lifecycle.
The system puts the business in control of operated and non-operated hire resources – from hand tools to large mechanical plant. For example, it will identify items of plant where the cost of ownership exceeds recovery and offers cross hire functionality, asset management and provides full cost of ownership analysis
Causeway Plant Management provides an instant glance of all plant currently on projects including internal & external hire, and provides
- Timely and relevant performance analysis
- Efficient accounting for asset acquisition and ownership costing without the need for reconciliation.
- Efficient hire & Sale Order processing removing the need for spreadsheets and notepads.
- Rapid access to real-time location and historical information.
- A sound basis for own/hire decisions by type and for supplier performance analysis
- Accurate maintenance costing and comparison between planned service intervals and breakdown frequency
- Fast document retrieval.
The Suite comprises:
The account hierarchy structure facilitates segregation of revenue, associated costs and both capital investment and liability in a manner that separate revenue streams (eg., hire, sale & contracting) can either be viewed on their own or consolidated. A separate departmental hierarchy allows analysis of the above dimensions across an infrastructure of locations such as regions and depots. The system can be configured to treat separate parts of the business as separate legal entities (eg., separate contracting from hire) whilst maintaining the ease of operational use by allowing say one invoice to be part analysed to an asset and part to a speculative contract.
Contract Costing Ledger
The Contract costing module provides an organisational contract hierarchy, a resource based cost and revenue structure and an activity structure that allows interrogation and reporting along several non-conflicting lines. To help manage the performance of contracting activities (where a contract can be a job or plant item) by location, market sector and individual job in a manner that provides useful business steering summary information on the one hand and facilitates intuitive access to sufficient detail at the heart of the matter on the other.
Creditors and Subcontractors
Full control of status of transactions from registration through to payment. Intelligent automatic payment processing and electronic payments to help manage Supplier Credit and payments with full analysis to costing and nominal ledgers.
Debtors and Contract Sales

In a contracting environment there is full visibility of payment profile against billing which feeds cash flow expectations on the contract. The module helps manage debt and credit control in both a traditional hire & sales environment, contracting environment (applications for payment) and a combination of both.
