With Clarity, as soon as you receive an enquiry you can quickly cost the whole job from start to finish, factoring in everything from artwork and materials to machine speed and shop floor overheads. And by pre-defining your margins within the system, you can guarantee profits every time.
Make complex calculations a doddle
We’ve developed two terribly clever ways to create accurate estimates – specifically for the sign, print and packaging industry. You can either choose materials and labour from price lists customised for your business, or use an advanced calc wizard which can even take estimated ink usage, machine speed, wastage and shop floor overheads into consideration.
If a customer asks for a tweak to their order, you can easily update their quote and Clarity will automatically update the total.
Automatically schedule production – and track progress
With Clarity’s optional production module, a job can be added to your workflow the second a quote is confirmed. So if a job requires a certain machine, Clarity will find the next available slot and ‘book in’ the job. Then, simply by clicking a quote, an account manager can see which parts of the job have been started and finished.
Boost your brand with professional documents
Sending professional-looking documents to customers does wonders for your brand equity (especially when you’re dealing with design agencies). With Clarity, your quote template is generated automatically, ensuring consistency every time.
You can even save any regular product orders as templates for even quicker estimates, empowering more staff to take care of straight-forward quotes.
Make continuous improvements to your offering
We know running a print business isn’t all sunshine and rainbows – sometimes a prospect will go elsewhere. In Clarity, you can record why a quote has been rejected, collate this data over time and pinpoint any necessary tweaks to your process, pricing or product.
