In a market where margins are under pressure, machine-hour costing plays a key role. With clear insight into the total costs, you can assess the return on investment of new investments, produce more accurate quotations and make a well-founded choice for the most profitable machine to produce the order.
MultiPress has a unique module that allows you to calculate the hourly cost in MultiPress itself. You enter the operating costs in detail, after which the module automatically calculates the correct cost price. The variables in the costs include specific things like replacement value, machine life, depreciation and production costs per square metre. You can also enter all kinds of other information into the module - direct, indirect, labour, machine, overhead and personnel costs.
The result is an extremely accurate calculation of the hourly cost price. It is possible to adjust the data on the basis of post-calculation, which increases the accuracy even more. This unique module is extremely flexible. Among other things, it allows you to create simulations of alternative situations. For example, you can simulate the costs of new machines, new employees, reorganisations and future investments. This way, you will always have maximum flexibility and an accurate basis for key business decisions.
- Informed choices: thanks to simulations, you can make comparisons between future investments and make informed decisions
- Clear ROI: the payback period of investments is clearly displayed
- Competitive advantage: thanks to the accurate costing, you can determine the exact margins for any particular product
- More efficient operation: with the data from the machine-hour costing, you can quickly determine on which machine an order will achieve the best yield
