Spend your time creating video masterpieces - not budgets.

We know. Budgeting stinks. What stinks even worse? Not making any profit on a job you killed it (and yourself) on. Pipeline's Budget Builder allows you create repeatable video production budgets in moments, create budget revisions effortlessly, and to visually keep an eye on your profit margin the whole time.

Making more doing what you love is actually as easy as better budgeting.

Budget Fast.

You only win the jobs you have time to bid on. Thanks to templates and xls and .pdf exports, Pipeline makes it easier to go after jobs with way less effort.

Budget together.

With unlimited users, and access controls, you can get input from team members you want, while keeping out the team members you don't. (Free is single user only.)
