About the Presstimator

The Presstimator is a software application for web offset printing estimating. This print estimating software prompts the user for detailed job specs requested by the customer. Completely customizable costs and settings can be adjusted in Shop Settings to create sophisticated and reliable estimates. The optional Presstimator Budgeted Hourly Rates module calculates rates to be entered in the Presstimator to ensure overhead expenses are being covered in generated estimates. The Auditor feature helps the estimator avoid mistakes by checking for any missing information, which can help eliminate costly oversights. The Presstimator also incorporates a wide variety of reports that can be generated directly from the estimate, such as Customer Reports, Job Tickets and Materials reports. These reports can not only save time, but they can also help the user track costs and initiate standardized cost studies. Quotes are stored in a searchable database for fast retrieval and easy modifications. With its Budgeted Hourly Rates and Job Analysis modules, the Presstimator can help printers determine their true costs, eliminate costly oversights, and meet profit targets.

About Budgeted Hourly Rates

Presstimator BHR is the definitive solution to establishing precise costing and estimating standards. In the printing industry, success hinges on precision in pricing as well as in workmanship. The most common problem in preparing accurate estimates is the lack of current costing information. If your selling prices do not provide for the recovery of all of your operational costs (rent, taxes, office supplies, management salaries, expenses and other overhead expenditures) your company may not show a profit, even though you have marked up the direct supplies, direct labor and added a contingency factor for overhead.

Having accurate Budgeted Hourly Rates is the first step in ensuring that your organization moves forward on a profitable course. These rates reflect a recovery of your true costs of doing business. You can be assured of maintaining your company on a profitable course once you know the exact sources of your organization's operational costs.

Presstimator Budgeted Hourly Rates can provide you with the information needed to prepare accurate job quotes!
