The solution of Estimating / Offer Management developed by SISTRADE enables organizations to formulate Estimating/Offer Management in a structured way and based on parameterizations that allow responding to the customers in the shortest and in convenient period of time. These quick rate of return results are visible for the company [THE RETURN OF INVESTMENT (ROI)].
Using Sistrade® software customer or vendor, anywhere in the world through any device can enter the initial data of the estimate for subsequent calculation of the estimator. The estimate may be performed based on work already repeated or created as new work, after the registration system determines the cost price and calculates the margins.
The Estimate draft can be based on a set of services set up between the organization and its customer, which contains the price of each service, called service pricing. Alternatively, and in a broader perspective instead of considering the services separately, they can be defined as a set of product pricing, which the customer confirms while the price of each product is defined a priori.
MIS|ERP Sistrade®, while preparing an estimate, allows controlling the information provided by the customer (models, colour proofs, photos, ...) immediately calculates all costs associated with work including the general components and preparation costs, production costs, shipping and transportation costs, assessing the measures of the work format, costs of resources/machines, setup times and their needs; operations costs including subcontract stages; overall cost with cost/benefit identification. In the end, financial margins are applied, with banks rates, fees, administrative costs, fixed costs, rappel, etc. Estimate or Offer is printed in the language and currency of the client and can be sent via email. After the estimate calculation for the base quantity is completed, Sistrade® software allows the calculation of estimating values for other quantities based on the estimate for the base quantity.

Small and medium enterprises form the basis of the metalworking industry. This industry consists of workshops and component manufacturers using various manufacturing processes. In some cases, these companies are experts in particular processes. The metalworking sector often uses an interrupted production process, piece by piece. The production of large parts requires greater attention to the management of time and costs.
Sometimes the production of parts is quite extensive, during the transformation process performed by various people and machines as well as mismanagement of machinery and manpower the cost of the product can increase.
