Utilizing CMS to Track Costs for COVID-19 Efforts

FSI is sharing a tip that has been implemented by several customers to assist in tracking costs for labor and materials associated with COVID-19 response efforts. One option implemented is to either create a Work Order Category or Common Problem choice for “COVID-19 Response”.

When creating or updating work orders associated with response efforts, this option is selected and allows clients to filter on those specific work orders. Any vendor costs or material costs can be added to the work order as a non-stock material charge.

Customers can also use reports such as: Time and Material Charge Summary By Work Order Category for Multiple Facilities, to assist pulling these charges from CMS.
