About Us

At Total Metrics we believe that measurement enhances understanding. That people need to understand software projects for them to succeed, and to understand something people need to measure it. We believe success needs measurement.

Too many software projects fail. Too many software teams can't prove their efficiency. Too much effort is wasted. Total Metrics helps manage software development. We provide software, training, and consulting, to objectively: estimate, manage, and benchmark software development. We help you understand what you software will do, how long it will take, and demonstrate to others that you've been successful.
