About Galorath

The leader in should-cost and will-cost analysis, project cost estimation and optimization

Galorath: Pioneering Precision in Project Estimation Since 1979

In 1979, Galorath embarked on a mission to revolutionize software and hardware development processes for businesses and the federal government. Our journey began as a consulting firm, but our vision quickly expanded as we identified the challenges and inconsistencies plaguing manual estimation processes. These challenges, from evolving requirements to wishful thinking, inspired our team of seasoned engineers, scientists, and analysts to create our groundbreaking SEER® cost estimation and optimization platform.

SEER was designed to bridge gaps, streamline processes, and bring clarity to complex projects. Over the years, our commitment to innovation has remained strong. We’ve continually invested in research and development, refining our methodologies and expanding our datasets. The result? SEER solutions replicate real-world project outcomes with unparalleled speed and precision.

Two foundational principles guide our every step:

User-Centric Design: Every feature & function should be intuitive and user-friendly.

Continual Improvement: Each version of our product must surpass its predecessor.


More Than Just Technology

But our software is just one facet of our offering. Behind the SEER suite is a team of industry-leading domain experts dedicated to providing a spectrum of services, including:

  • Specialized Consulting
  • Comprehensive Engineering Services
  • Product Training and Onboarding
  • Federal Services
  • Data Science
  • Customized Training

Galorath has been transforming how organizations approach intricate, specialized projects for over four decades. Our expertise empowers leadership teams with insights, enabling them to make informed technical and financial decisions confidently. Our legacy is not just built on our products but on our people. Our team comprises some of the brightest minds in the field, many of whom are not only certified by prestigious industry bodies like the International Cost Estimating and Analysis Association and the Program Management Institute but are also shaping the future of these organizations.

At Galorath, we’re more than just a company; we’re a legacy of precision and unwavering commitment to excellence.
