[prMac.com] Holly, MI - Announcing Fyrian LLC, the developer of PocketProposal, launched their new product for iPhone and iPod touch. The application is an invaluable business tool that calculates fast, accurate price estimates on the run for busy freelancers or any professionals who bill by the hour. Users can provide project pricing that is based on hourly rates, unit prices, profit margin percentages or any complex combination of those. PocketProposal helps increase freelance profits by eliminating miscalculated or misquoted price estimates that are typically given on the fly and result in lost revenue because of underquoting.
It's typical for people to insist on instant, ballpark pricing. It could come up at a networking luncheon, while attending a trade show or a chance encounter but everyone wants to know the same thing: how much will it cost. In this age of instant gratification, PocketProposal provides sweet relief to freelancers who often under quote their services and end up breaking even on a project or worse, losing money.
"Unfortunately, a lot of freelancers and other professionals find themselves in situations where they feel they need to respond immediately when a potential client asks for a ballpark price," says Mark Dollan, Owner of Fyrian LLC. "The worse part of that is the fact that the quoted price is sort of pulled out of thin air. People can get caught off guard, want to have a fast come back and guess off the top of their head. Sometimes it works out okay but most often, it doesn't"
That's where PocketProposal comes in. Dollan designed the app to help freelancers increase their profits and relieve some of that stress caused by being put on the spot with pricing questions.
Users can generate quotations on the spot, from their iPhone or iPod touch. The app quickly and easily calculates hourly rates, unit prices, wholesale markups or any combination of those things. This may prevent a freelancer from forgetting to add an element of a project or from calculating wrong when figuring things out in their head. All cost estimates can be emailed to the client and saved in individual client files, for later review or reference.
