Itemised Customer Quote using FastCAM QE


FastCAM® QE™ is a multi-user, comprehensive quote database which offers accurate, nested, optimized quotations for all processed parts with full graphics. For sawing, shearing and burning needs, FastCAM® QE™ will create quotes with accurate calculation of tonnage, remnant, scrap and all costs related to the job.

Our fast optimized quote system is a proven integral part of an overall 'faster to market' business approach. The cost attributed to poor quoting is substantial for any business including steel service centers. Not only is FastCAM® QE™ consistent and accurate, parts are nested onto available stock including remnant stock, providing a 'best cost' quotation. Optimization for us is getting the greatest possible yield from material by trying millions of computer generated layouts. It is also about correctly identifying what is remnant which can be resold and what is scrap which is waste and must be charged to the job.
