Agile Quotation Tool
Agile Quotation Tool (AQT) – is here to help you create an estimate for your project based on an agile approach, in a consistent, accurate and simple manner.
You might say, agile doesn’t use quotes, however funding / cost is still central to the development of all products and projects.
You have been asked to provide a quote on a project. What should you do… of course there are the spreadsheets.
Agile Quotation Tool (AQT) – is here to make your project estimate simple and consistent, using agile methodology. It’s a perfect tool to kick off your project.
Should you use estimation / quotations for Agile projects? The short answer is yes. Funding is always needed and it’s a critical factor for any projects.
Unlike spreadsheets, there is no need to remember where the relevant quote is, as it stored in a central location
AQT is available in 2 subscription models – Basic and Premium.
Basic allows you to estimate / quote on small and medium sized projects, while Premium also allows you to estimate large projects.
