A lot of times we get phone calls or emails from a company looking for a program to help them run their business more efficiently. Upon speaking with them they tell me over the phone all the things that they want this program to do.
They want it to enter customers information, run invoices, create po's, print reports, check this... check that ... so on and so forth.
They want it to work with their existing business model and of course we will make it very proficient and easy to use!
After several minutes of discussion, they then proceed to ask how much this is going to cost to do this.
Now this is a very fair question but it is also a very difficult one to answer after only speaking for a short period of time.
It could take many months of work or only a few weeks. It may be simple to them in their business but until we fully understand it the full scope, we will not know how long something like this could take.
