Customize Project Costs With The Fee Estimator

CMAP makes it easy to define your project scope, plan who you want to deliver it & for how long.

Simply flip your fee approach to suit your project's requirements; whether you want to build your budget as a fixed fee or time & materials, CMAP has you covered.

  • Fees are template driven so you save time quoting on repeat projects. 
  • Create unlimited fee templates which automatically generate costings based on stored rates & fee type
  • Quote in any currency you like. You can even save specific currencies to your fee templates.
  • View your projected margins
  • Download costing tables to share fee breakdowns with potential clients

Budget For Additional Costs & Fee Adjustments From The Outset

CMAP encourages you to plan for expenses & 3rd party costs as soon as possible,  so your budget doesn't throw up any nasty surprises later down the line.

You can then choose to bill any additional cost to your client or absorb it as a business cost.

What's more, you can assign fee adjustments to accommodate for agreed contingency uplifts or discounts & CMAP will automatically calculate the adjusted total for you.

Accurately Predict the Future With Forecasting Calendars

Fee Estimator budgets in your pipeline automatically feed detailed forecasting reports in CMAP, giving you all the tools you need to plan ahead as effectively as possible.

CMAP takes your invoicing calendar (projected committed invoicing) and overlays your business development pipeline; which is based on probability-adjusted fees spread across the duration of the project.

Resulting in a 12-month forecast of live & potential projects.

Make Smarter Resourcing Decisions Based on Your Budget

Project budgets automatically push through to the project's Resource Schedule so you can make profitable resourcing decisions informed by your budget.

  • Budget automatically updates as soon as you assign resources to a project so you know exactly how much you have left.
  • Plan resources in before you've won the project to avoid scheduling clashes
  • Compares the value of time spent against booked time, providing instant insights into over delivery.
  • Combines historic timesheets with future, forecasted time to illustrate the overall, financial impact on your business.

Job Costing Automatically Informs Your Billing Schedule

Once you've won a project in CMAP, the project value instantly informs your invoicing schedule.

By getting billing schedules in CMAP early, you're in a better position to predict cash flow & income figures using detailed forecasting & invoicing calendars.

If your project is based on resourced time & materials, CMAP automatically schedules placeholder invoices based on your project values, which you can approve or amend once invoices are due for creation.

For fixed fee projects, CMAP gives you the flexibility to customize your billing values & frequency to match the terms agreed with your client.

Track Project Budgets Against Actual Performance

It's vital to keep track of project budgets during delivery to ensure you're making a profit. 

Which is why budgeted fees feed directly through to the Budget vs. Actual report associated with each project.

Meaning you can gain real-time insights in to over delivery and project profitability by comparing how much your projects are actually costing to deliver in comparison to your budget.
