The programs let tool shops generate quotes more quickly and accurately. Both programs support quote generation, from importing part data and splitting the part, through development of a blank layout, thinning, and gathering material conditions (for die quotes) to final quote generation. Quote-related data is stored in a database letting users search for past quotes from similar situations, track successful and unsuccessful quotes, and conduct win-loss analysis. Quote data can also be linked to accounting or ERP software to reduce redundant data entry.
