Where Do These
Savings Come From?

The key to software development is time. Developer time is very expensive, and poor quality results in lost time. The ReadySET Pro templates save time by providing a much faster way of creating project documents. The templates help improve quality by asking the right questions and providing thought-provoking sample answers. Those savings add up.

The ReadySET Pro templates save your valuable time because we at Method Labs have invested our time in creating them. Several man-years of work have gone into the templates to help you save days, weeks, or months.

Saving more than 10 days of your project schedule does not guarantee that your project will be a success, but it certainly helps.

Note: The default cost per developer hour is based on public information from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Your cost may be higher or lower depending on location and industry.
