“I dealt with an estimate for a customer last week and in Billings Pro it took me less than 5 minutes to email the customer a professionally formatted PDF estimate. To do that in Excel would have taken twice that long and also would have taken me hours to set up in Excel as I wanted in the first place.”

“Not only does it help speed up my invoicing time, it is also tremendous for our turnaround time for estimates, which are always needed "yesterday" for most clients. By using one of the many custom templates we set up enables us to turn around this paperwork quickly.”
- Stacey Kvernmo
Cost estimates your clients “get”
Give new leads and clients a cost estimate they can easily understand. Each estimate slip created in Billings Pro appears as a line item on the PDF estimate. You can break down your estimate in sections and add comments to give your clients the details they need. More details mean your customer can understand the estimate and make a decision faster.
Send an estimate right from your iPhone
Send a cost estimate on the spot while you’re with your client or right after a call with Billings Pro on your iPhone. Create the estimate slips with details, choose a template, and send. By sending a quote right away you stay top of mind with your client, get the process moving faster, and save more time for getting the actual work done.
“If I’m at a printers and they give me a quote, I can generate a print quote right on my iPhone and send it to the client. In this way, Billings Pro sort of lowers the barriers of time.”
- Dave, Toy Rabbits

Edit on the spot
Modify a quote quickly and easily so you can send it back right after a phone call or while you’re still with the client. Billings Pro makes it easy to edit a cost quote whether you need to add additional work or adjust the price. Eliminate errors by being able to work with your client on the spot until your quote is approved.
Use Blueprints for common estimate slips
Save time using a Blueprint instead of creating a new estimate slip for things you do on the regular. Each estimate slip appears as a line item on your estimate. For estimate slips you use all the time, you can save it as a Blueprint so instead of having to enter in the details each time for a new estimate, you just select the blueprint and voila!
“We can quickly provide a customer with an estimate/balance–a lot quicker than before. Previously we used Apple’s Numbers application to generate estimates. Now that we use the Blueprint function in Billings Pro, our speed in delivering results has increased tenfold.”
- Matt, We Are Rapture
Start working from an estimate
Use an estimate as a checklist for the work that needs to be done. From each line item on the estimate, you or a team member can tap to start working. You can tap it to start tracking time, add an expense, or fixed slip to the actual invoice. This way you’re sure all the work you quoted your customer is done.
Sync with all your Apple devices
Start working on your iPhone or iPad and easily switch to working on your Mac. Or start working on your Mac and have a teammate keep working on their iPad. Whether you’re using Billings Pro on your own or with a team, all your devices are kept up to date. So you can capture the main details from your iPad while you’re with a client and have your teammate finalize the estimate from their Mac back at the office.
View your clients’ full history of estimates
See the full list of estimates sent to each client from their client account view. Compare the work you’ve quoted from the work you’ve done to see what clients you need to follow up on to get the work started. Each estimate is uniquely numbered so you can always reference an older version of an estimate after you’ve made revisions.
Compare your cost estimate to the actual work
View each estimate slip from your working slips to compare the time and cost quoted for each portion of a project. Run a simple report to compare the total estimated cost to the actual cost of a project. You can use this report to show your clients as well as for your own reference to help you get better at estimating projects in the future.
“The biggest benefit I’ve gained with Billings Pro is time. I don’t have to spend a lot of time manually figuring things out or building reports to give to my clients. It’s a huge time saver.”
