    Subcontractor work is entered by the job, which is then separated into cost centres and stages for easy identification of progress costs. Details such as work and tax rates may be entered and used for claim calculations.
  • Claims Processing
    Flexibility in the handling of progress claims means that subcontractor costs can be processed in cumulative or period claim amounts, and can easily adjust for and manage variations as they occur such as discounts. Each claim is also provided with a unique reference number for tracking purposes.
  • Retention Management
    If you are the subcontractor, ABM will allow you to produce interim payment applications to the main contractor. For nominated subcontractors or main contractors, ABM accurately records retention amounts retained by the main contractor and will prompt for the release of any balance of the amount of the retention at the end of the retention period.
