“Offering Costimator as a subscription license requires less up-front costs than the perpetual license, as the subscription fees spread payment out across the term of the agreement,” says David LaJoie, vice president of sales at MTI Systems. “In addition, subscription payments are often treated as an Operating expense rather than a Capital expense, which can make it easier for companies to obtain budget approval for the initial investment.”

Costimator cost estimating and quoting software has been helping manufacturing suppliers and OEMs be more competitive since 1982. Originally designed for suppliers, such as job shops, contract manufacturers, precision machining and fabrication houses, who manufacture parts, it significantly reduces estimating and quoting time, while not compromising accuracy or consistency. OEMs use it to enhance their knowledge directly related to how their suppliers manufacture their parts. This improves communications which helps develop better results during supplier negotiations, a win-win for both supplier and OEM.
Through the years, Costimator has continued to gain estimating speed for manufacturers. Additional manufacturing process data, as well as software features, such as the cost model editor, “Cost Modeler”, have added significant improvements. This quest for increasing estimating speed also brings other sought after benefits such as consistency, accuracy, instant reporting, easy updates, better organization of data, and more.
The continued advancement of new features and functionality also helps manufacturing customers meet the needs of new technologies and emerging manufacturing processing requirements. Suppliers and OEMs, worldwide, in industries such as aerospace, agriculture, defense, electronics, medical, heavy truck, energy, transportation, and construction machine manufacturers find the most success, which is revealed through the software developers testimonial section located on their website. Test-driving Costimator® via an online demonstration is invaluable for manufacturers seeking to improve their estimating. This approach projects a clear view as to how Costimator® could work for them in their manufacturing environment.
