Wright Williams & Kelly, Inc. Offers Free Software Development Cost Estimator

COOLSoft™ v2.0 Available as Web Download

January 17, 2006 (Pleasanton, CA) – Wright Williams & Kelly, Inc. (WWK), a cost & productivity management software and consulting services company, announced today the availability of COOLSoft™ v2.0, its latest generation software development cost estimating tool. COOLSoft™ utilizes a hybrid approach of intermediate and detailed versions of the Constructive Cost Model (COCOMO). This allows for the reuse of existing code, development of new code, the purchase and integration of third party code, and hardware integration. The output is then displayed as man-months of programming effort, calendar schedule, support costs, and hardware costs.

“We have used COOLSoft™ for the past decade as an internal guide to our development projects”, stated David Jimenez, WWK’s President. “This latest release transforms our internal tools into a commercial grade application that any organization involved in software development or maintenance will see as a great benefit. Software development budgets and timelines are always met with skepticism by management and COOLSoft™ provides a quantitative approach to help reduce uncertainties.”

COOLSoft™ download instructions are available on the WWK web site by selecting the Products link and then the COOLSoft™ link.
