What People Are Saying About
Employee Cost & Pricing Analyzer...

Impressive calculator! It’s a game changer - highly recommend to properly burden your job cost.

Carolyn Prendergast, Prendergast Construction Company, Inc.

The Employee Cost & Pricing Analyzer™ is a key product to ensure that you're charging enough money and ultimately saves your company money.

Catherine Baldi, Arana Craftsman

I think it's a comprehensive product and it's a product particularly small companies that have to do their own estimating and costing options should use.

Kelvin Owens, PMI Energy Solutions

With what we do, the materials are easy, that's not the snag. The shrinkage is really in the labor and having that really detailed labor cost.

I went through and filled out the eCPA myself and didn't have any problem navigating in it and coming up with some good numbers.

I had to make a couple modifications. I just called Diane and I said how should I handle this in regards to some Worker's Comp questions? We worked it through in 5 minutes on the phone and I put it in place.

Scott Collins, Collins Concrete

We were using a different labor burden calculator, but this just breaks it down into even more detail.

Taking on a new hire and labor is definitely pricey. The eCPA has been so helpful to look at and know exactly what a new hire will cost us. Then we can ask ourselves, do we think he's going to be worth that amount? You really have to think about the level of expertise and the requested salaries and think, okay, can he generate that much more income for us?

Which version to select?

  • Choose the "Small" version if you believe you will always have less than 40 employees and 6 or fewer employee levels or departments to track.
    Why? The "Small" version has fewer employee and equipment tabs, and due to the smaller Excel file size will likely open a bit faster on your computer .
  • Choose "Mid-Sized" if you believe you may potentially have more than 40 employees or would like to track more than 6 departments or employee levels.
    Why? "Small" and "Mid-sized" are two separate programs and cannot be "migrated" between versions.
