I wanna learn about what you guys know about production rates. I am teaching myself how to estimate the “right way”. Local paint pro currently is myself and 1 employee, with another part timer starting next week hopefully. I am going to try PEP CLOUD in the very near future, thanks to woodco. I am pretty much timing how long certain activities take and using these figures in future estimates. Fill me in, and thanks in advance!

If you're getting big jobs, pep cloud is worth it. Be sure to try to do the estimate without it first sometimes, and compare the results. When I use it, the numbers come up a lot higher than if I dont. You still need to use your brain to figure out prep times and stuff, but for square footage, , and paint prices, its pretty on. A lot of times I think its charging too much for something, but I go with it anyway, then find out later that it was right, and I was wrong. It's saved me some serious headaches. I was selling myself short before I started using it. Theres other programs out there too. I dont know which ones are better or worse.
