“Costimator has increased our estimating speed, accuracy, and consistency between 20 - 40%, which has led to an increase in overall profits by 20%”.

MTI Systems, Inc announced today that since the company's cost estimating software was implemented by Automat (Barcelona, Spain) in 2010, they have seen a 20% increase in profits.

Manufacturers worldwide, both suppliers and OEMs (original equipment manufacturers), select Costimator to help them with their estimating challenges. The estimating software offers a wide range of options for both the buyer (OEM) and the seller (supplier); it helps estimators identify shorter manufacturing times and find new ways to manufacture processes, parts, and the finished products at lower costs.

Luis Gerardo Carmona Cruz, Central Negotiations, at Automat explains, “I have estimating experience in machining for over 15 years and I never imagined finding software that could help us simplify and break down each of the costs. Furthermore, the software helps me to have better negotiations, have better control of the information (Prices), and then validate the purchases we make.”

Companies like Automat purchase parts from suppliers; Costimator improves their sales cycles and purchasing processes by reducing the estimating and review time, while providing fast, accurate, and consistent means to reduce part costs. The result is a win-win for both supplier and OEM.

Cruz concludes by saying, “Costimator has increased our estimating speed, accuracy, and consistency between 20 - 40%, which has led to an increase in overall profits by 20%."
