  2. Project-Specific Tax Capability: Reduce manual tax adjustments with enhancements that accommodate tax calculations specific to each project.
  3. Improved Open Billing Details: Enhanced management of bulk hours and dollars on hold, including their release, to reduce manual tracking efforts.
  4. Reverse Billing Tracking Functionality: New functionality for tracking reversed bills adds an extra layer of detail and accuracy to your billing process.
  5. IWO Functionality Improvements: Simplified Intra-Work Order functionalities that require less configuration, making the process more user-friendly.
  6. Automated Billing: Automate your billing process with the generation of invoices based on predefined configurations, reducing the potential for human error.
  7. Flexible Billing Structures: Configure multiple billing structures and different contract types using various rate types for unparalleled flexibility in billing.
  8. Robust Cost Accumulation and Allocation Capabilities: Ensure the generation of accurate invoices with enhanced capabilities for cost accumulation and allocation. The system also supports canned system project-specific invoices and the creation of custom BI invoices as required by contracts.

Billing Audit Controls: The latest Costpoint 8.2 version also includes billing audit controls with built-in audit trails and controls to ensure accuracy and compliance with regulatory requirements.
