Any brilliant idea starts with a simple project. And any project starts with estimation and analysis:
Projects estimation is important, but shouldn't be a challenge. So, how does projects estimation happens in Estimatess.io?
Start with gathering information and shaping the idea in some specification file, or better wireframes/designs. Remember, more information you have, less uncertainty you'd have associated with the project -> thus, lower error factor. We wrote earlier about the importance of the wireframes or designs for web project estimation: How vital are the wireframes or designed UI files for a good project development estimate?
Once gathered the initial information for the estimation - feel free to create a project, by going to the Projects section and clicking "+".
That's just a beginning. Moving on...
The next step of the estimation is the work breakdown. This is how a review of the specification file looks like. Imagining you have a simple website development project with rough idea description. By reviewing it and adding work breakdown you can come up with the estimate fast enough, without extra excel spreadsheets, poorly formatted documents or ad-hoc notes.
On the analytics tab, you now have the basic estimate for further work. You can:
Now you're just one click away from sharing this estimate with your client(s), the management board or other interested stakeholders. By clicking "share" button it's possible to create an online link (password protected, if needed) to present a nicely-formatted analysis.
That's how it works. No pain and a lot of gain ;)
