To manage software projects in today's tough financial climate it is essential to forecast costs correctly. By understanding software costs and what drives them you can consider all the options and make critical decisions with confidence. Above all, the ability to estimate costs effectively allows you to plan projects better and gives you that vital competitive edge - both as a customer for or developer of important software systems.

Eagle Vector has developed a methodology, based on the use of the PRICE True Planning tool, that enables all major project software decisions to be made in the light of full knowledge concerning impacts on costs.
