Multi-Craft Cuts Estimating, Planning and Prepress Time In Half
Time savings is only part of the story, however. Kevin Coombs recalls a project where estimators compared plans that were generated with and without Metrix. The Metrix-generated plan saved $11,000! Once the job has been won, Multi-Craft planners are tasked with using Metrix to “beat the estimate” if they can. Sometimes this means more significant savings, though the Metrix estimators have usually found the most efficient job plan and so are pretty hard to beat.
“Everyone,” explains Kevin, “estimators, CSRs, planners, and prepress and production teams of varying experience levels and software savvy, have been impressed with how easy Metrix is to use, and how it makes short work of both simple and complex projects.”
