To send data from your project's Budget tool to your company's ERP Integrations tool.
After you create and/or update a project's budget in Procore, you will want to send the new and updated data in the Budget tool to your company's ERP Integrations tool. Typically, a project manager. Once the data is successfully sent to the ERP Integrations tool, it can then be accepted or rejected for export to Sage 100 Contractor® by your company's accounting approver.
Things to Consider
- Required User Permission:
- To send a budget to the ERP Integrations tool: 'Admin' level permission on the Budget tool.
- Add the Sage 100 Contractor® Job to Procore. See Add a Sage 100 Contractor® Job to Procore.
- Ensure the project's cost codes updated and synced to Sage 100 Contractor®. See Update Project Cost Codes.
- Create or update the project budget:
- The budget must be locked before the export. See Lock a Budget.
- After you export a project's budget from Procore to Sage 100 Contractor®, you will NOT be permitted to import a Sage 100 Contractor® job's estimate into Procore.
- The ability to unlock the Procore budget (see Unlock a Budget), resend data to Sage 100 Contractor®, add budget line items, and create budget modifications will be disabled until:
- The export from Procore to Sage 100 Contractor® is complete and the exported entries have been manually posted to Sage 100 Contractor® using its Job Cost function. See your Sage 100 Contractor® Help system for instructions
- The synced data is visible in the Job Costs Report. See View Job Costs Report.
- After posting entries in your Sage 100 Contractor® Job Cost function, the data will sync back to Procore according to the set schedule. See View the Sync Schedule Page for Sage 100 Contractor®.
- If you want to expedite the sync back to Procore, you may the On-Demand Sync option via the hh2 synchronization client. See Perform an On-Demand Sync.
- Additional Information:
- If your budget includes Procore Sub Jobs that you want to export to Sage 100 Contractor® as an 'Extra' (a.k.a., 'Phase'), the sub job information in the Budget will also be sent the ERP Integrations tool.
- Navigate to the project's Budget tool.
This reveals the Budget page.
- In the 'Budget' page, under 'Cost Code Detail', review the budget's line items.
Note: If your budget contains sub job information, it is listed in the budget (see the arrows below).
- When you are ready to send your budget to the ERP Integrations tool for acceptance by an accounting approver, click Send to ERP (or, if you've previously sent the budget, click Re-send to ERP).
- If the Send to ERP (or Re-send to ERP) button is grayed out and unavailable, hover your cursor over the question mark (?) to learn why. Typically, it's because the project's ERP data has not yet been synced or because the item does not meet the minimum requirements (see above).
- If the Retrieve from ERP button appears, the data has already been sent to the ERP Integrations tool.
After you sync the budget for the first time, you can also sync an updated Procore budget to Sage 100 Contractor®.
Note: If you are updating a Procore budget that has been synced with Sage 100 Contractor®, see Create a Budget Line Item and Create a Budget Modification.
The system sends the original budget and budget modifications to the ERP Integrations tool where it can be accepted or rejected for export to Sage 100 Contractor® by an accounting approver.
