Project budget management made simple: HORREUM Project Budget Manager add-on for Jira

Dealing with your project’s budget can sometimes get overwhelming. Just remember all the expense reports, all the project budget templates you had to fill up and the everchanging project team’s rates.

Can you? Well, neither could we.

Efficient project budget tracking

That’s why we decided to make project budget management a little simpler for ourselves and, in a short but heart-breaking meeting, cried out to our development team to build us a project management app that we could use along with Jira and that will track our project budget consumption for us. But, being extraordinary as always, they added a few features and Horreum Project Budget Manager add-on for Jira was born! The developers made us so proud that we decided to share our treasure with all of our fellow PMs out there.

With Horreum Project Budget Manager tracking your project budget is a matter of just a few clicks. It can read your project people’s work logs from Jira and then generate a report based on current conditions: hourly rates and additional expenses. You don’t have to worry about changing the rates in your Excel sheets and then checking the formulas anymore! Once you’ve entered a new hourly rate for an employee, Horreum Project Budget Manager bases its calculations on that entry, and that entry alone. Nonetheless, old rates stay in the system so you can have a kind of historical overview of what you’ve been paying your team and for how long.

Clear-structured project budget reports

We made PBM’s report with great consideration for us PM’s. We are just people after all, aren’t we? And like all the people in the world, we enjoy simple things: good food, a strong cup of coffee and clear-structured reports! Besides the mandatory numbers and percentages, we added a progress bar in the report, too.  You can easily predict if you are close to going off budget just by the looks of it. The progress bar indicates if you are on/off budget or on track using the colors: green (on budget), red (off budget) and blue (on track). There you go, it’s even pretty. And, don’t forget the exporting to Excel and PDF part! Because you can do that too.

Pretty (awesome) report

Automated reporting schedule

With Horreum Project Budget Manager reporting schedule feature, you will never forget to send your stakeholders the budget report. Just enable the project administrators who need to get it and choose the time and date when they want to get it. They will get it. And with up to date data.

Bearing in mind the old saying that the best things in life are free, we made a decision that Horreum Project Budget Manager should be too. We hope it will help you as it’s been helping us for a while now.
