CMAP takes the time and hassle out of job costing, allowing you to create fee estimates in just a few clicks.
It's flexible, too.
Mix top-down (e.g. percentage-based, price per square ft/m, etc.) and bottom-up (e.g. resource-driven) approaches in the same project.
Use different fee types for each of your stages e.g. fixed fee for core deliverables and time charge for variations - whatever you need.
What's more, it's equipped to handle running and billing the project in whichever currency is required.
CMAP pulls live timesheet, personal expenses and purchase invoice data to drive real-time Budget vs. Actual reporting.
Real-time awareness enables you to identify poor performing projects and take action (e.g. adjust resourcing, negotiate additional fees, etc.) before it's too late.
Over time, CMAP's report suite helps you to understand where your projects are profitable—or not—and gives you the tools to learn, adapt and scale.
CMAP's resourcing reports make sure you have an accurate view of current and future demand, and if you have the capacity to deliver it.
The resourcing tools make it a breeze to add the right people to projects, based on skill, role, cost & availability.
Changes immediately update financial projections, so you're aware of their impact as you make them.
There's more - resourcing data can be used to drive revenue forecasting, which will please your finance team!
CMAP's Workload Schedule tool enables you to make quick changes with a simple drag & drop.
You can even resource within the tool, rather than having to do it within the project itself, and make changes to the allocation e.g. extending the timeframe.
It's further supported by CMAP's skills & attributes tools, helping you to home-in on the right people in your resource pool.

CMAP keeps users up-to-speed on the areas that matter to them e.g. project workers with resourcing, project managers with performance, finance with billing, etc.
Points of note include:
CMAP auto-populates invoice schedules at the click of a button, so only quick tweaks are required rather than keying it all in from scratch—but you can do that too, of course!
Approval workflows allow project managers to sign-off invoices when they're ready to be billed, including any narration they'd like to have added for the client. Alternatively, you can control approvals centrally. Whatever you prefer.
Invoice creation is simple. CMAP takes the approved data e.g. amount, address, etc., and inserts it into your own custom sales invoice templates.
Payments can be updated, so project managers are aware of debtor issues on their projects and don't have to pester finance for the information.Learn More
