- We estimate a job across every press and sheet size combination in seconds
- Choose between input‑based pricing (Labour, machine and materials), catalogue pricing, or specific contract pricing per customer
- The ability to use market driven pricing for your sell price while still maintaining actual costs
- A toolbox full of automation options to control your impositions, control margins and automate booklet section creation with fold catalogue equivalency
- Customers and sales staff can quote all types of work online with the confidence that they cannot order something that your factory cannot produce.
The production management tools within printIQ focus on communicating information in real time to everyone within the factory. With tailor made views of a job for each department, we’ve delivered a tool that eliminates the in-trays, the talk and the re-work.
