Vehicle Costing

Vehicle Costing Menu

VC is a simple and easy to use Vehicle Costing PC based system. It has been designed to make it easy for you to maintain a data base of Vehicles, enter fixed, semi-fixed & variable costs for these vehicles, and using this information, produce a variety of reports.

The long-term goal is to track vehicle costs, identify maverick vehicles, and improve the productivity and performance of your fleet of vehicles.

Vehicle Costing integrates to Signet's General Ledger, enabling the user to pass the relevant financial entries directly to the ledger.
