All project cost estimates can be created in Costlocker and then exported into Excel to be sent to the client.

Advantages of exporting

  • You’ll save lots of time by exporting from Costlocker, as opposed to creating calculations in Excel and entering them into Costlocker once they’re approved.

  • Costlocker doesn’t make mistakes. When working in Excel, there’s always a chance that human error may lead to wrong calculations – and invoices.
