Cruncher can accurately calculate almost any price providing providing it is based on a formula
or pricelist. We provide very simple calculators based on square metre rates, or complex calculators
which estimate detailed time and material requirements; or we can include your own personal pricing formulas.
We do believe that you can only make money if you price above your cost to manufacture; so we try to give
you guidance on this. We don't tell you what you should charge, but instead try to provide you with a
consistent way to price your jobs. You can then just add on the margin that you feel you need to get a
sale in your local market. Registered users can save their settings.
Our costings are based on benchmarks for the overheads and productivity typical of small businesses in
our industry. We estimate timings using rates derived from test jobs, personal experience, video footage
and M-Power Software barcode tracking software. Our material prices are based on trade accessible price
lists without special deals; and are conservative.
