PROFESSIONAL ESTIMATING CLASS
Professional Estimating Class
The last thing you want when sending an estimate is to realize that you forgot to include something, that may “eat” your profits later. And that’s a problem. Inaccurate estimates are expensive and frustrating. Who would like to work for free? Not me. You? I bet you don’t either. Well, with an inaccurate estimate, the profits of a company can quickly disappear if you don’t consider all direct, and indirect costs of the project and of the company, and it also must account for future changes in market conditions.
Understanding the process of estimating is vital for the company success. Learning how to use the estimating software helps to make the process easier, faster, and more precise.
