It’s the challenges that make life interesting
(at least it seems that way once you have overcome them!)
During the last couple of months we have been facing a number of challenges at Masterbill during the development of our latest upgrades and new modules.
A number of these challenges have presented themselves as we have been developing the new Masterbill Elite Cash Flow Forecasting Module which is due to be fully released next month. This Module includes the ability to allocate cost items to the Contractor’s Programme via a Gantt Chart and then record actual progress.
In the last week we have been working to understand and incorporate Earned Value Analysis facilities which, we are certain, will enable users to demonstrate to their clients whether their projects are ‘On Time’ and ‘On Budget’ and quantify the time and cost variances. We are certain that this new module will prove useful to Quantity Surveyors and Contractors alike and already have a couple of users keen to Beta Test it for us in the next month – if you would like to join them please contact me and register your interest.
Other challenges have included the development of a whole new way of analysing priced documents and explaining how Freeform Bills can satisfy the requirements of a number of organisations that would not have used Masterbill in the past.
But we are not the only ones facing and overcoming challenges as you will see if you read the report from Dundee City Council, who win this month’s (if not this year’s) award for an the most unusual use of QSCad, if you think you have made use of QSCad in a more unusual way or a much more sensible way why not let us know – you never know you could feature in next month’s newsletter!
