Introducing 4castplus 5.0
For smart cost management of your projects
4castplus provides the right tools, the reporting and the data to ensure projects are managed intelligently, collaboratively and as unified entities. Unified rather than disconnected in separate silos, systems and spreadsheets.
Driven by client feedback, our R1, 2021 release of 4castplus is a testament to our commitment to continually deliver critical new features and enhanced functionality that will bring even more value to our customers and their end-users. Read on to discover some of our new features and enhanced capabilities.

- Subcontract management for: Fixed Price, Unit Price and Time & Materials
- Greater flexibility in cash flow and milestone planning with the Payment Schedule module
- Performance metrics gathering and reporting
- Enhanced Receiving module to enable more precise subcontract receipts

Dedicated to the Security and Confidentiality of Your Data
At 4castplus, we have put significant focus on the dependability and security of our project cost management solution. Achieving completion of an external audit of financial and governance controls resulting in a Service Organization Control 1 (SOC-1) compliant report with SOC-2 IT controls attests to the effectiveness of the data security processes and controls 4castplus has in place so that our clients’ can operate more efficiently and securely in today’s complex global environment.
As we continuously expand and invest in our product and security capabilities, we will continue to enforce these standards and bring in new measures as the world of cybersecurity and data integrity is constantly changing.
Improved Reporting Capabilities
After a great deal of feedback, we’re pleased to have added new ways to drill down into labor data to enable greater insights into project details. The addition of new reports on daily log (journals), production quantities, improvements to curve reports and the ability to align reports to a point in time (progress measurement period) all contribute tremendous value to the information collected in 4castplus.
We’ve also improved program-level reporting and added two new dashboard reports and one drill down to our existing comprehensive reporting module, as well as a new “Audit Log” report.
Simplified Systems Integrations and Configuration
In addition to major extensions to the 4castplus Integration API, we’ve also simplified finance and payroll integrations with our new Accounting Codes feature. This enhanced functionality allows you to configure cost codes specific to your finance system, that are separate from cost codes.
