The pain points at VFX studios today:

Bidding guesswork

Bidding Guesswork

Accurate bids are critical, but bidding spreadsheets rely on mostly guesswork and magic formulas. Two bidding producers will typically produce two different estimates, and rarely incorporate actual numbers from previous projects. This causes immense financial pain to a VFX studio during the production and delivery phases of a project.

Profit margins at risk

Profit Margins at Risk

VFX projects today are based on cost-plus pricing. Profit margins are susceptible to being quickly eaten away when projects and staff are not managed effectively within VFX studios. Inefficiencies in projects and staff management are typically caused by the use of off-the-shelf software or unwieldy, homegrown tools.
