Cost-Estimating Software Integrates Directly with JobBossApril 1, 2014
Costimator cost-estimating software from MTI Systems, Inc., West Springfield, MA, after a recent upgrade to version 12, now integrates with the latest version of JobBoss, from Exact Software. Costimator exports critical data including cycle times, labor costs and material usage directly into JobBoss to help customers quote jobs with a higher degree of accuracy. Also, with the two programs combined, users avoid much of the duplicate data-entry chores during cost estimating.
MTI also reports that its recent Costimator customer, machine shop Alpa Precision, L.L.P., Houston, TX, has applied the software to automate what had been a manual estimating process. The software helps the firm identify lower-cost processes and procedures for manufacturing parts, says company owner and president Alberto Lozano, and it helps deliver more of the information that customers want.
“Costimator reduces my quoting time by more than 20 percent,” says Lozano. “This provides more time to estimate more quotes and for double-checking quotes, as well as offering more programming time for manufacturing parts.”MTI Systems, Inc.: 800/644-4318; www.mtisystems.com
