B-COMM also collects labor (task) data and records job transfer data with detailed task information, and records elapsed time entries such as vacation time, sick day, jury duty and holidays. In addition, B-COMM supports project labor reporting against tasks and chargeable projects and expenditure types,

B-COMM is designed with J2EE architecture and is highly scalable, offering custom configurations specific to each PeopleSoft customer.
