Corporate Controlling

VvW Control 2023

Project controlling is becoming increasingly important in architecture and engineering offices in view of ever tighter fees. It is becoming increasingly important for planning offices to constantly monitor the economic success of both individual projects and the office as a whole and to take countermeasures at an early stage in the event of impending undesirable developments.

Introduction to VvW Control 2023

Definition of controlling:

Controlling is an instrument of corporate management that encompasses planning, steering, control and reporting.

The basis is a detailed cost and performance accounting (CAC) as an information system for successful controlling.

Objectives of cost and activity accounting:

  • Value-based recording and presentation of the operational performance process
  • Profitability control, i.e. in particular the monitoring of the quantitative component of the operating result
  • Determination of the hourly rates
  • Carrying out project costing (preliminary, ongoing and final costing)
  • Determination of the "operating result", i.e. the success generated by exclusively operational services of the planning company.

Zeiterfassung Mobile App

For our VvW Control software, 2023 we offer a free app for the Zeiterfassung module, with which you can conveniently record working times while on the road. The prerequisite for this is the optional "web server" module:

  • Synchronisation between app and desktop
  • Record times accurately
  • Start / Stop / Pause function
  • subsequent entries

Schwerpunkt HOAI

Prof. Uwe Meiendresch, presiding judge at the Aachen Regional Court, recommends that architects and engineers use a secure HOAI billing system.

Practical report: IBK Dresden - Facts and figures instead of "reading coffee grounds".

Coffee is a tradition in Saxony. Nevertheless, IBK Dresden does not believe in reading coffee grounds when it comes to office and project data. Instead, exact figures are required from BMSP programmes. Mike Silbermann, responsible for controlling, accounting and IT at the engineering firm, reports on his user experiences.

Case study: Ingenieurbüro Többen - Office management? Yes, but not off the peg!

"Office management software should adapt to the office - and not the other way round," says Martin Többen from the engineering office of the same name in Munich. The following practical report reports on his experiences in choosing a programme, getting started and using it.
