KeyedIn(TM) Solutions Launches Estimating Software for Small- to Mid-sized Manufacturers

Press release date: Mar 11, 2013

Free Webinar points the way to accurate estimates anywhere, anytime, on any device.

Minneapolis, Minn. — Every manufacturer knows that getting estimates right can mean the difference between success and survival.  An estimate has to be a complex balancing act – competitive enough to win the job but not so competitive that it reduces profit margins.

Now there’s a solution.  KeyedIn™ Manufacturing Estimating Software enables accurate estimates to be produced in minutes and a free Webinar this week demonstrates its range of features.  KeyedIn Manufacturing allows manufacturers to reflect the true costs of different processes and components, see margins in real time as the quote is built, and ensure consistency between estimates.  Finished estimates can be converted into sales and work orders in a single click, with all supporting documents produced automatically.

A cloud-based solution, KeyedIn Manufacturing helps automate everyday office tasks at a low monthly cost and allows anytime, anywhere access on any device.  There are no upfront costs, no new hardware or long implementation processes.

A free Webinar to explain the processes and demonstrate the software will be held on Thursday, March 14 at 2:00pm (Eastern), 1:00pm (Central), 11:00am (Pacific).  Also available is a free Data Sheet.

Karen Adame, Chief Product Officer at KeyedIn Solutions, says:  “Estimating needs to be based not on gut instinct, but hard evidence.  How much will your raw materials cost – at current rates?  How long will it really take to complete the work?  Are there any ways you can increase margins, and still meet client requirements?”

“At last, there’s a way to bring together all the knowledge and experience in your business in one easily-accessible place, to create estimates that will win business and increase profitability.  This is a cloud-based solution that you can buy today and be using tomorrow.”

KeyedIn™ Manufacturing provides tangible benefits to other areas of the company as well.  As an integrated solution, it provides visibility to all processes, meaning the shop floor can see what is coming down the pipe and plan for future workload.  Additionally, sales people can verify with the prospect or customer when their item will be available, based on up-to-date knowledge of actual working schedules, improving efficiency, on-time delivery and customer service.
