Software Description:

Price&Cost is the best way to stay on top of your project costs.
Estimate, track, and analyse project financials.

Price&Cost allows you to:

  • Find cost-effective ways to deliver - Experiment with estimates to see project financials for every scenario. Compare and choose the best one.
  • Test "what-if" scenarios for live projects - Discover more profitable ways to deliver projects by simulating different resourcing scenarios. React to changing requirements.
  • Monitor project financials - Monitor variations in project Price, Cost, and Margin as the project progresses. Make adjustments and keep your project budget on track.

Estimate and re-estimate until you are certain

Getting an accurate budget estimate is tough. That's why we help you experiment with different scenarios, creating a snapshot for every change. All you have to do is choose the one that makes the most sense to you and your client.

Know where you stand today

Once your project is in full swing, you want to keep up with the changing dynamics — all of which will affect your project financials. This is where Price&Cost comes in and helps you get a clear objective view on things. Every time.

Look into the future

Delivering projects on budget and profitably is a balancing act. Price&Cost allows you test multiple "what-if" scenarios and experiment with your resourcing mid-project, always showing the metrics at the finish line.

Full change management support

Projects are in constant flux — new requirements come to light or major resourcing change is on the horizon. Ensure your budget and margins are safe by calculating the impact of a change request.

We’ll keep you up to date

The best way to manage a project is to be proactive. We take the same approach and periodically remind you to update your actuals and forecast.

Powerful resource management

Keeping spreadsheets with client rates up to date is a thing of the past. Enter all your costs, rates, and overtime rules in one place and use them in any project with a few clicks.

However you prefer to work — we’ll adjust

There isn't any hard set rules how to manage a project. There shouldn't be any limitations to how to estimate and track one either.

Continue using familiar tools. We play nice with others

You have a certain workflow and a trusted set of tools. We get it. That's why we integrate with other tools, rather than ask you to change all of them.

Software Description:

Transform the way you work with Smartsheet, a uniquely collaborative task and project management app.

Organizing projects and tracking due dates is a dream with the familiar spreadsheet interface, date columns, status symbols, and check boxes. One click and you can view deliverables on an interactive Gantt timeline or calendar.

Smartsheet is a complete solution for tracking every element of your project. Attach and store files from your computer, Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, and Evernote, directly to a cell. View a cell’s history for a log of changes that have been made, and capture team communication using discussions. Deadline approaching? Automatic alerts and reminders notify task owners when a due date is coming up, so you spend less time tracking people down and more time working.
