5. Added option to define a default (TAX -) Cost Centre to a contract item

6. Show Average Cost for Aggregated Product Types

This option will display the average cost for products with an aggregated product type. The End User in Enterprise Control will see the average cost for these product types instead of the actual cost. The average is calculated by taking the total cost for the product type and divides it by the total number of users for the product type. This way, all the users will receive a portion of the total cost.

Example

Actual cost for Ted Rader for “MD – Technical”: 200 USD

Total cost of all contract items with product type “MD – Technical”: 3000 USD
Total number of users for all these contract items with product type “MD – Technical”: 10

Average cost for Ted Rader for “MD – Technical”: 300 USD

Example Ted Rader

 

It is also possible to include this field in your reports via the User Defined Query section. You can use a new parameter on cost fields like “Net Cost Allocation” to use this functionality.
