Bid and Estimate Companion

MLMA Software
[ This app is no longer available for download ] Voted Top Ten Business App for iPhone.

"Here's a pretty simple app that gets the job done pretty well. This app lets you create a bid and estimate easily and then send them as quickly as possible to your clients. It allows you to - create cost items and associated costs/unit of measure, create basic defaults, and then it builds the estimate and automatically tallies the bid as soon as you add or modify entries."

The Bid & Estimate Companion has been developed for ANY business that needs to quickly and accurately provide a cost estimate for their goods and services.
This application will allow you to effortlessly create, and then either show or email the estimate directly to your client.  There will never again be a need to tell your client that you will get back to them later with an estimate.

Basic functionality is listed below.

-Create your cost items and their associated costs/unit of measure.
-Create basic defaults (this includes adding a sales tax rate, and a default message to include with your emailed estimate).
-Begin building your estimate.  Providing that your client is in your address book, you can simply select them to have their contact information import into your estimate.  You can even assign discounts to items.
-The estimate automatically tallies as you add and remove items.
-Once finished, touch the email button and the email is sent directly to your client.

This is the perfect app for Event Planners, Landscapers, Contractors, Plumbers, Electricians, or ANY service oriented business. This application is designed to save you valuable time to do other things besides manually calculating bids/estimates.
