Discover Why LiveCosts Is Your Best WorkflowMax Alternative

Has WorkflowMax's retirement left you scrambling? Try LiveCosts.

LiveCosts is the best addition for any construction business that uses Xero. With deep integration, and construction-specific tools, LiveCosts can take your business beyond WorkflowMax.

LiveCosts seamlessly connects your project data to Xero in real time

Xero has become hugely popular with construction companies worldwide. But these accounting softwares were never specifically designed to manage construction project costs. This leaves construction companies adding spreadsheets to manage costs in a specific construction structure, spreadsheets that are unfortunately disconnected from the companies main financial software.

  • Not construction specific, multi industry features
  • Complicated onboarding & support
  • Poor automation
  • Limited integration
  • Limited reporting
  • Frustrated customers
  • Built by construction people for construction
  • Two hour set up with two minute response time
  • Smart invoice scanning & automation
  • Integrations to all major accounting products
  • Real time project dashboards & reports
  • 98% customer renewal rate

LiveCosts runs throughout our whole company now, right from site staff recording deliveries, and site admin staff being able to track costs – especially labour costs – to here at the office being able to track POs, to the management being able to look at the overall picture for jobs.

Before we had LiveCosts, our biggest problem was the accuracy on the margins of jobs. LiveCosts has saved us at least 6 days a month, and probably more.
