Calculating the correct prices for a sheetfed offset printing order
With the MultiPress calculation engine you can quickly determine the right format, technology and machine for each sheetfed offset print job. This ensures that your print orders are produced efficiently at a competitive price with healthy margins.
You can quickly calculate changes in print runs, variations, extras, speeds and print times, without losing the overview and because MultiPress knows how to accurately calculate the cost of each technique in the process, the story always adds up to a correct bottom line!
With MultiPress you can easily calculate each facet of the cost plus production times of your print job. The MultiPress calculation engine takes into consideration, the plates and the inks used, as well as the set-up times for each job. MultiPress also takes into account the expected production speed depending on the ink usage per page. There is also an allowance in the calculation for any waste caused by misprints etc.
When in doubt about the chosen printing press or layout, MultiPress will evaluate all comparable combinations and offer a calculation of the most economical production cost.
Statistically, most printing companies have to put forward a cost calculation for over 90% of all orders in advance. It is therefore logical that the calculation module should be powerful, simple and fast. And it really doesn't get any faster than MultiPress.
