KipwareQTE® Machine Shop Job Costing and Estimating Software

 

STOP Winning Work

... that is NOT Profitable

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

About 75% of shops polled admit that they really don't know if work they win is actually making a profit. Wasting your time and shop energy winning work that is not profitable takes your time and energy away from work that is ... it's a downward spiral.

 

The proven design of KipwareQTE machine shop quoting software and a user interface that works simply insures that users will not miss steps in the quoting process and that costs estimated will mean not just winning work ... but winning profitable work.

 

 

IGNORING RFQ's ?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

About 85% of job shops polled admit that they don't respond to request for quotations because their quoting and estimating process is tedious, time consuming, difficult to use which causes them to miss the required deadline.

 

The real world design of KipwareQTE® machine shop estimating software was created by "manufacturing guys" and eliminates the clutter and overly complex "features" of MRP and ERP packages to have you producing quotes and estimates quickly, easily ... and most importantly ... accurately.

 

 

It's Not ALWAYS

ROCKET SCIENCE

 

More complex does not mean more efficient.

 

More expensive does not mean better.

 

More "features" does not equate to more powerful.

 

Kipware® was born on the shop floor to solve real world problems. Customers have told us over and over that using KipwareQTE® actually showed them why they were losing money ... and taught them how to quote effectively. "Things" they never thought of or even considered are now done automatically and they quote with confidence knowing the work they win is actually worth winning.

 

We used Kipware® every day ... and still do ... to not only win more work ... but to insure we win more profitable work.

Do you even think about deburring and packing? Can you generate a Bill of Materials from your estimates? Winning the job means you need to know how much material to buy, how many inserts to have on hand, how much machine time is needed ... and so much more.
