Our History

After co-establishing his own company in 2004 our founder soon identified a big problem; quotations took a huge amount of time! Meeting with prospective clients and capturing their needs took many hours (and sometimes days...) to put together accurate quotations and back up reports. 

This problem was the nature of the ‘customized’ solution each client needed, and usually meant a full system design had to be created before an accurate proposal could be created.

There were several issues with this, each affecting the profitability of the business.

  • The design work was being done but not paid for
  • The customer would change the requirements after the quote had been delivered
  • The design work for the changes were being done but not paid for
  • The customer would often want to change the quote...again!

Several software programs were available for project design, but none that coped with the rapid changes that occur at the beginning of a project.
In short, there was a desperate need to be able to amend quotations quickly, easily and at minimum cost. As a result, Project Q was conceived! 

Project Q is a unique tool which...

  • Is flexible and allows changes to be costed immediately
  • Illustrates options instantly allowing you to agree the scope and final cost of the project at that all important first meeting
  • Shows simultaneous price adjustments 'on the fly' while maintaining control over the impact each change would have on the profitability of the project
  • Gives the client what they really want (the cost...) immediately
  • Provides a profitable fixed price quotation and fee schedule at the meeting
  • Requests a down payment so that project design can start right away
  • Profit is generated by increasing sales and decreasing costs.
