micro estimating who we are

Who's behind MicroEstimating?

Good question. We're probably a lot like you. We're dreamers who started out in businesses very similar to yours and, like you, figured there must be a better way to get things done. So, we created MicroEstimating back in the '80s to find ways to help others in the industry make more money in less time.

Like all new things, some of it worked. Some of it failed miserably. We threw some stuff out, fixed some things and built on successes.

Now, a few decades later, we're still helping people make more money in less time. (We still have slide-rules in our bottom drawer just as a reminder of how we all got started.)

We're estimating experts, software developers and family people who will never let an accounting firm tell us how to run a business.

We like classic rock, medium-rare, and black-and-white movies.

We like helping people succeed.

That's what we do.
