Those of you who have worked as consultants in the past understand the importance of keeping track of everything. The time that you put in to get your work done and the expenses that come up along the way need to be tracked if you want your business to stay afloat and grow. PocketProposal is a powerful application that enables freelancers to come up with estimates for their projects without underestimating the costs and time they have to spend those projects.
One of the biggest challenges of the consulting business is to figure out how to come up with an initial estimate for your potential clients. Freelancers need to pay attention to a lot of factors to get this part right. PocketProposal can help you do just that. It can calculate an estimate for your project based on your business model. If you intend to charge your client per hour, per day, or per task, this app can handle it.
You can enter your costs into this app and have it mark them up for you, so you can relay accurate numbers to your customers. The combined calculator is pretty handy too (letting you use a hybrid business model for your project). Once you are done with your estimate, you can e-mail them to your customer right from this app.
PocketProposal won’t do your projects for you, but it does help you come up with a decent estimate for them. The interface is very simple to use too. Very handy app for traveling freelancers.
