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.
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.
Management teams at VFX studios lack the visibility and tools to know which staff are best utilized for current and future projects and tasks. This leads to under allocation, over allocation and poor planning of the staff pool within a studio.
With no single source of trustworthy project and staff data, VFX studios often find themselves in recurring daily and weekly meetings to make sure tasks are kept on track. This directly affects productivity, leading to team friction and mistakes.
Our industry-leading AI and Machine Learning features will solve your pain points.
