Estimator Cloud to Showcase Industry’s Lowest Cost Per Estimate Software System at Graph Expo 2016

Friday, June 24, 2016

Press release from the issuing company

WESTON, Fla. – Estimator Cloud – a cloud-based, any format and configuration program offering the lowest cost per estimate in the printing industry – will be showcasing its innovative software program at booth #2293 at the Graph Expo in Orlando, Fla. on September 25-28, 2016. 
 
With more than forty years in the industry, Estimator Cloud Founder and President Mark Myers had his fair share of frustration with the lengthy and inefficient estimating process that was "business as usual" when he ran his 100+ employee print shop LDC Graphics. After searching and being unable to find an ideal solution, he embarked on the journey that led to the creation of Estimator Cloud. Using this program in an everyday working environment allowed him to develop the most cost-efficient system, while applying scores of specialized features unique to this application.
 
“The reality is that most printers only receive 30% to 40% of the estimates they do, yet they still have to go through the labor-intensive legwork of entering all the data into their expensive MIS systems,” said Myers. “Now, with Estimator Cloud, a single person can easily generate hundreds of accurate estimates in a day from any computer or mobile device, which means more opportunities to secure jobs and make more money. It’s really that simple.”
 
While most systems take months of intensive training to teach the assigned personnel how to use the system, Estimator Cloud is intuitive and can easily be learned by any employee in a matter of minutes. Arming more staff with the tools to create estimates can enable the company's ability to be more responsive, improving both sales and satisfaction from their clients. Additionally, Estimator Cloud was designed to easily export via any database format information needed by their complex systems.
 
“Most printers don't realize how much the estimating process is a real cost of their business, and instead accept the belief it is a necessary, not to mention expensive, overhead investment,” added Myers. “Using Estimator Cloud is essentially like hiring a dedicated estimator for as little as $0.02 an hour and available 24/7.”
 
For example, the world's largest printer Moore Wallace Donnelly purchased this program to test its effectiveness over a wide range of specifications. The head estimator – who established the parameters for their Hagen system – was assigned to work directly with Myers in the development and evaluation over a ten-month period. The results proved this program could, conservatively, save several million a year companywide.
