It's 5 O'clock and the deadline has passed for the RFQ that you have buried under a pile of papers on your desk.
Missed another deadline.
You've got capacity on the manufacturing floor. You could really use more orders, but you can't afford to buy and get people trained on many expensive CAD packages. And the CAD jocks you have are busy, getting jobs out the door. So they don't have time to stop and open the OEM's CAD files or even draw up a model to be included in the quote.
How can you increase the number or quotes you are completing on time without utilizing your valuable CAD resources.
One essential tool for today's contract manufacturers and job shops to do quoting and estimating is a Multi-CAD viewer. Inexpensive CAD viewers are available that allow you to open, view, measure, get mass properties and print. These are easy to use - no need to bother your valuable engineers.
This is a two prong boost to your productivity. You can complete more quotes, more quickly and for more customers and you can increase the amount of time that your engineers stay focused on your current projects. This easy to implement, low cost CAD tool will add to your top line and bottom line simultaneously.
