An estimate is a preliminary evaluation of the products or services planned to be sold to customers.

Example: The project manager needs to estimate the cost of mobile app development. He creates an estimate in Flowlu: indicates what will be done and at which price. Then he sends it to the client for approval. A set of services and costs varies in the process of project approval. After the customer’s approval, the manager converts the estimate into an invoice and sends it to the client for payment.

Access Settings for Estimates
