I've worked as a mechanical engineer since leaving university 20 years ago. I've worked across a number of industries including automotive, energy, research and packaging. During my career I've always looked for the most accurate and efficient ways to solve problems which has led me to develop and code apps in every position I have held. Some of the apps have been to calculate complex mathematical formula following industry standards and other apps have streamlined part creation and documemtation systems. I have also created software that predicted and assessed extruder die wear and software to centralise the engineering data and documention for large projects.
Since I started RadCreates I have developed a number of applications that allow me to confidently price up the products and services we offer.
One piece of software that has evolved from this is CraftCost. CraftCost is our proprietary pricing software. It can be used to price up a range of things, from cakes to candles to assembled mechanical devices and general maintenance jobs. It's been designed to be a completely standalone piece of software that gives a breakdown on the costs of producing and selling a product or service. CraftCost gives us a powerful, fast and reliable means of deciding the prices at which products are commercially viable.
This software is useful across a very wide range projects and was developed so that I could quickly check price points for our custom made products and make sure that they make commercial sense whether it be a direct sale or an online order through an esablished marketplace such as Etsy, Ebay or Amazon etc.
I now even use the software to price up DIY projects and other personal jobs I want to carry out around the home.
Right now I have a version 1.0 available and a mobile app version is in development for Android and IOS. I want to make the windows version available, in limited numbers, for free so that other small business can have access to what I consider a very useful tool. If you are interested in a copy please contact me.
It is an active work in progress so suggestions to improve the software and tailor it for specfic sectors could be implemented very quickly.
