"With Project Insight, our estimates have become more accurate and all-inclusive because they're based on project plans, staffing, resources, time and expenses. It's already very obvious in our levels of billing. Project Insight is a huge part of the new approach that allows us to issue quotes faster and bill at a higher level."
