    Print Estimating

    Fast and Easy Job Costing

    HiFlow’s robust estimating engine allows your estimators to quickly complete a sales estimate and get it back to sales for approval. Through it’s centralized database, every estimator has access to pricing levels, current inventory, the latest order from a customer, paper and ink information, the status of tooling, and more. It gives the estimator a complete picture of available resources and what needs purchasing. In fact, the system will automatically generate a purchase order if supplies are needed. HiFlow also offers tools to manage customer collaboration, and sales has access to every order as well, through the database.

    Once a quote becomes a job, HiFlow’s unique Workflow Diagram is created from estimator’s data. This comprehensive picture of the entire job–materials, machines and people–is a graphic representation of the job that authorized shop floor has access to and can drill down into for data connected with that job: inks, paper, tools, machines, operators, documents & artwork, plates. Instant access that is visible for shop floor workers, and can be posted on workstations as well as monitors in the plant.

    What Our Clients Say

    I wanted one complete solution. When I saw HiFlow, with all its capabilities, it did not take me long to recognize that I had found my solution. They have over 100 locations in Europe which was a big positive for me. I knew we could get more personal attention.

    Dale Ford, Colonial Printing, Mailing, Packaging

    We chose Hiflow to realize the promise of a more customized solution, built specifically for our business.

    We also wanted a fully integrated solution with one centralized database instead of multiple, loosely connected databases. Hiflow’s superior BI reporting tools helped finalize our decision.
