The estimating tool is very much the heart of your print business. That’s why we like to get the costs and metrics right, from the start and make a proper set-up of the system. This will make you on top of every cost parameter, which is the best start when deciding on your strategy for sell prices.
The the 3 step implementation:
- Basic set up – you will have a site to get to know your arifiQ.
Data needed from you: List of equipment & operations, List of Product types, Logotype, Choice of pricing structure.
- Calculations – you will be able to start testing calculations
Data needed from you: Media price list, Cost & Metrics for equipment & Price list for shipping, Sell price data, etc
- Usage – the site is fit for production mode
Data needed from you: E-mail settings, Customer data, User settings, Quote and other document templates, etc.
We will give you easy to use templates for every bit of information – we will take it step by step, nothing is going to be overwhelming.
How long does the implementation take?
If you can take the time returning information requests quickly and testing calculations – you will have your site in production in a months time or earlier if you’re a digital printer.
Is there a short cut?
arifiQ has got standard settings to use, if you don’t need/want having every bit of cost parameter and metrics reflecting your print shop. Then you’ll be up and running in 1-2 weeks.
