For project managers, accurate estimates are a core for effective project planning and execution. Without proper estimating of duration, costs, resources, risks, etc. managers can’t make timely and efficient decisions. There are typical events that may impact the validity of estimates. Here are some of them:
– poor definition of work scope,
– lack of information,
– inflated optimism and bias,
– poor risk management,
– and more.
There is no more room for paperwork in the estimation process
To make accurate estimates managers need a constant flow of timely data. Moreover, the estimation process should not be complicated by time-consuming paperwork. That’s why special mobile solutions for estimations are extremely common today. Many companies offer ready-made estimation apps to use on-the-go. Such apps allow managers to always work with timely data without any paperwork and look more professional in front of clients.
The Job Estimator app from Snappii is a real godsend to generate professional job estimates in minutes and provide them to clients. The pre-made mobile estimation form can be filled in in a few clicks. The app automatically makes all calculations. Here you can learn how the Job Estimator app works in more detail.
