"Costimator is a complete game changer for us," said Marschke. "With this software we can view multiple estimates at the same time, improving our decision-making process making it more analytical instead of relying on guesswork. It’s not only helping us manage our quotes and estimates better — It’s flat out giving our customers better prices."
In an industry where transparency can be an issue, the Costimator quoting software provides the ability to translate complex data into easy to understand information and has provided an unexpected advantage over their competition.
"The ability to deliver our customers with a breakout of data is a tremendous advantage," he explained. "We’re now able to provide a special kind of transparency to customers. While it helps make our decision making easier, it does the same for our customers. There isn’t a price in the world that you can put on trust."
"At the days end, we haven’t found a platform that comes close to what Costimator can do," he concluded. "It’s not only helped solve our existing problem, but its impact throughout the periphery of our business has been profound and afforded us the opportunity to capitalize on a lot of unforeseen opportunities. It’s a total process improvement."
