The system has internally added NAHB and CSI construction cost code lists to help you get started with the initial setup.

However, you are free to add an extended list of your own cost codes either from an Excel or CSV file. Syncing with a current Xero or QuickBooks account will ensure double accuracy and precision in tracking expenses throughout each project.
