Graphisoft launches Optiplus, the on-demand estimating solution for print buyers

Wednesday, September 13, 2006

Press release from the issuing company

Orleans (France) – 12 September 2006 -- Graphisoft, a management software vendor for printers, has been a leading company in the print management software market since 1984, with more than 1000 printing companies using its advanced software solutions. Graphisoft is announcing the launch of the English version of Optiplus, an industry-unique software solution that enables print buyers to immediately calculate print estimates across all of the buyer’s printer partners. Optiplus enables a win-win partnership between the printer and the print buyer, as follows: print buyers benefit from immediate and competitive pricing; printers save significant time in not having to respond to every quote – meaning that new sales can be closed without detailed estimating on behalf of the printer ! Optiplus is not only a pricing tool, but more importantly it is a costing tool, aligned to the critical production calculations and algorithms. Optiplus calls into question the traditional Request for Proposal (RFP) methods that rarely bring satisfaction – to either the print buyer nor the printer – and therefore it can revolutionize the relationships between print buyers and their printers. The core of Graphisoft’s deep industry and software expertise is the optimized estimating system called ESTIPRINT. From a simple description of the finished product, the ESTIPRINT estimating engine determines the most economical production process depending on the specifications of machines, operations, materials and the prices of the printer. From the exact same estimating engine, we have developed the Optiplus software for print buyers. This advanced software solution enables a print buyer to immediately identify the printer that offers the best price, for each specific job ! Optiplus can be easily adapted and configured to meet the unique requirements of corporate print buyers, communication agencies, publishers and print management companies. It can also be complemented by other Graphisoft software modules, for functions such as job planning & job costing, inventory management, contact management and online customer requests for new estimates, reorders and job status inquiries.
