Users: The Presstimator can accommodate multiple users connected
to the same database on a server. Users can share costs, standards,
customers and quotes from a single database.
Form: Customizable Web forms allow your customers to
request a printing quote through your company's website. The
contents of the request are e-mailed to you, and they can be imported
directly into the Presstimator as a New Quote. Once this data has
been imported, click on the 'Load All Defaults' button to have a Quote
calculated in seconds. Custom web forms can also be used internally
as a convenient way for salespeople to enter the initial job specs. View a Sample here.
Production Actuals Application: A
standalone mini-application installed on a computer on the pressroom
floor allows the press operator to directly enter the production
information into the Presstimator database to making it immediately
available to the estimator to generate the Profit Analysis and Estimate
vs. Analysis reports. Click for more information.
Presstimator's Analysis reporting analyzes profits and compares estimates
vs. actual production data. Once a job is completed, you can input
the actual production counters and time information from the production
department (this process can be streamlined using the Presstimator
Production Actuals Application). The Presstimator will
then analyze the data within a customizable Excel spreadsheet so you can
see how accurate your estimates are. You can also analyze total
profits based on filtered estimates from the Quote History screens.

customer asks for pricing for a 4, 8 or 12-page Tab with 10,000, 15,000
or 20,000 copies with different color options, this can all be entered
within a single quote and a price matrix can be printed and sent to the
customer so they can select the quantity and pages based on the
