MIS Software for Flexible Packaging Estimating

The flexible packaging has to comply with a large number of safety regulations and requirements. The more demanding are the regulations, the more complex is the packaging structure, the more specific is estimating and it is critical that all the details are included for a cost-effective enterprise.
Estimating has never been so simple! In just a minute the user can enter the customer data, type of product, technical details about the job, simulate other quantities, apply margins, analyze the financial indicators and send directly the quotation by email through the system.
