Our flexible digital print quoting module enables you to estimate simple digital jobs as well as more complex multi section booklets and pads. Use this to calculate digital estimates quickly and accurately and always being able to see the true cost price to your business. Create a standard product from your digital print estimate to save you having to keep quoting the same item in the future. You can also copy past estimates, modify them and send as a new quote to the same or a different customer, and you can create multi item campaign quotes and the other items don’t have to be digital items they could be offset or large format.

As part of the digital print estimating process you can add other costs for artwork design, finishing processes, delivery and any other costs that you may incur in the process of producing the job. Our intuitive and easy to use estimating modules always display the actual cost of production to you and clearly show the gross profit you will make on the job for each quantity you are estimating and our whole system works equally well in metric and imperial measurements.

Our comprehensive offset estimating module enables you to quote simple offset jobs as well as multi section booklets, pads and NCR (non carbon Copy) books. The quick accurate offset print estimating process will enable you to generate your quotes with ease and then save them to a standard product to save you having to continually create the same quotes again and again. You can also copy past estimates, modify them and send as a new quote to the same or a different customer, and you can create multi item campaign quotes and the other items don’t have to be offset items they could be digital or large format.

Our large format print estimating module can be used for complex signage and point of sale print quoting, as well as more straight forward banner and poster print estimating. It can be used to quote both linier and square meter (or sq foot) prices depending on how you prefer to work and the substrate you are quoting for. Whether you are quoting for an outdoor banner, backlit posters, indoor/retail display or a simple corflute sign our system can enable you to generate a quick and accurate quote.

You can quote multi item campaigns and if items are similar to each other it is quick to copy and modify an item saving you from creating each item individually. If you need to add other costs such as artwork, finishing costs, assembly, or installation then our system enables you to do this. You can also copy past estimates, modify them and send as a new quote to the same or a different customer, and you can save quotes to become standard products reducing the need to requite the same item again in the future.

The complex process of custom sign fabrication and manufacturing is made simple in our system through the easy estimating process that enables you to build a quote using a number of different processes. Whether you are manufacturing a tower sign, an illuminated light box, street sign, or a billboard structure our system will enable you to do this efficiently and quickly.

You can create standard components in the product catalogue and combine these along with other costs such as design, labour, fabrication, welding and installation even down to the nuts and bolts to produce highly customized quotes. You can also copy past estimates, modify them and send as a new quote to the same or a different customer, and you can create multi item campaign quotes.

Print managers and brokers need a solid platform through which they can track and manage many jobs in production with different suppliers and to tight deadlines. Our solution enables this plus much more.

Create estimates for print, promotional products, signage or any other outsources requirements where you send a quote request to your suppliers and then add a margin before sending the quote onto your customers. You can seek prices form multiple suppliers at once and for multiple quantities enabling you to select from the best suppliers price for each quantity. Suppliers can enter their prices directly into the system (saving you time having to do this data entry) along with their best delivery date and delivery costs.

If required you can outsource one section of the job to one supplier and then a second section to a different supplier enabling even the most complex jobs to be managed through the system. You can also add other costs for artwork design, finishing processes, delivery and any other costs that you may incur in the process of producing the job. Our intuitive and easy to use estimating modules always display the actual cost of production to you and clearly show the gross profit you will make on the job for each quantity you are estimating and our whole system works equally well in metric and imperial measurements.

No matter what your main production workflow entails you are sure to have other costs that need to be applied to your estimates whether they be costs that are incurred before the production process, during or afterwards. Our easy to use other costs module enables all your costs to be captured and included in your quotes and jobs ensuring you recover all your expenses and gain a suitable margin on these as required.

This function can be used on its own for companies such as specialist finishing and binding businesses or it can be used in conjunction with any of our other estimating modules to build a complete quote that comprises all the elements of the production process. Other Costs can be added as a sub item of the main item you are estimating or they can be a separate item in a campaign giving you complete flexibility of how you build your quote.

All of our estimating modules enable you to save an estimate into the product catalogue to create a product that can be easily used in future estimates and jobs to avoid having to keep estimating the same item time and again. You can also create products without creating an estimate and this is used extensively for products such as promotional items and products that are sold to a fixed price matrix. Our price matrix can be set to force the use of preset quantities or can be on a flexible per item price. We also have a sq meter or sq foot price matrix for standard large format and signage products.

Catalogue products can be used in multi item campaign quote where the other items may not be from the catalogue, and catalogue items can be added as main items or also as sub items of a main item in the estimate. As with all of our other estimating modules product catalogue estimates always display the actual cost of production to you and clearly show the gross profit you will make on the job for each quantity you are estimating. Our whole system works equally well in metric and imperial measurements.
