Pro Invoice / Estimate, PI/E, a Studio Management Database System for Photographers, Representatives and Stock Image Agencies is a Preeminent Business Management Tool with the features necessary to manage any photographic business and provide the information required to make intelligent business choices. There are three parts to any business; Product (Talent), Sales and Business Management. PI/E provides the Sales and Management tools to help you succeed in today's business market.
 
PI/E was developed by professional photographers for Advertising, Commercial, Fine Arts and Stock Photography studios, Commercial Production studios, Representatives and Stock Image Agencies.
 
PI/E was created as a business management tool for professionals based on the "80:20 rule".
 
80% of the business comes from 20% of the clients.
80% of the work is performed with 20% of the tools.
 
"The 80:20 rule originated from Vilfredo Pareto, an Italian economist who studied the distribution of wealth in a variety of countries around 1900. He discovered a common phenomenon: about 80% of the wealth in most countries was controlled by a consistent minority -- about 20% of the people. Pareto called this a "predictable imbalance." His observation eventually became known as either the "80:20 rule" or "Pareto's Principle".
 
"The "80:20 rule" has become one of the best known "leadership shorthand terms" reflecting the notion that most of the results (of a life, of a program, of a financial campaign) come from a minority of effort (or people, or input)". Source: www.paretolaw.co.uk
 
PI/E purpose is to keep focus on that Important 20 Percent.
