MTI Systems Inc. Costimator version 12 cost estimating software has provided manufacturers a better way to estimate and quote parts more competitively. Version 12 is packed with upgrades and features that further enhance the speed, accuracy and consistency for estimators, as well as a new layer of specialized and unique features for machining, the company says.
The company says now the learning curve is significantly shorter – meaning not only will estimators get accustomed to how to use the software quicker, but they’ll be able to reap the benefits of faster, more accurate estimates. When combined with its enhanced customizable cost model building tool, users have even more options to estimate parts their way.
Some of the many upgraded features in Costimator Version 12 include updated Material Wizard, new/updated Auto Attachment feature, new SolidWorks Integration, updated Work Center rates, enhanced Data Import Utility and Export Designer Utility, and more.
