What is Print Estimating Software

Even a relatively simple printing project includes many elements, including the method of printing, copies required, materials and supplies, and labor.
A quality program such as Ordant's print estimating software enables the print shop estimator to take into account those various factors and consistently create project estimates that are fair to both printer and client. In addition to facilitating estimates, the software includes a management information system that tracks the progress of each job, compiles profiles of clients, and maintains comprehensive records.
Long-term planning is simplified because information is highly organized and accessible to all employees.
Ordant's software also features modules that can be fully customized to a specific print shop's products, services, and prices.

Why Quality Print Estimating Software is Important

Print estimating software is an essential tool for printers because it brings modern efficiency to the quoting process.
With just a few keystrokes, it's possible to create an estimate that balances the shop's need to cover costs and make a profit with the need to draw new clients and retain old ones with attractive prices.
The print MIS functionality makes it easier to control costs. Waste, production bottlenecks and cash flow issues are more readily identified.
Without print estimating software, drawing up estimates would take much longer, and send a bad signal to clients. They'll likely think that if a shop is so woefully out-of-date in its estimating practices, it is probably not current in printing technology, either.
