    Print Cost Estimating: Manual or Automatic

    Right now, we're doing our cost estimates manually but we're planning of purchasing
    a cost estimating software. Do you guys have any suggestions?

    You could try Metrix Software.
    With Metrix you can plan costs, press times, ganging, etc.

    Additionaly if your WF support JDFs, Metrix can send impositions directly to your WF and expose it.

    I would also suggest to contact any software house, it may turn out to be cheaper to get something custom done depending on your needs

    manual

    sometimes, using manual estimation still made better result..
    but, for extra speed and alot cost estimation, using software based made us do decision faster...with of course nearly accuracy result ( not as good as the manual one )

    WE also use a custom excel doc, works pretty nicely. I just know how to use it tho, not edit the equations. I leave that to the boss!

    There is a lot of options in the market. Some are cheap and some are very expensive. Also depends if the MIS system should integrate with the rest of your workflow via JDF. Heidelberg just bought CERM to replace Prinance. The new product name is Prinect Business Manager. Some of the high end systems is Hiflex and PrintVis.
