EFI IQuote (Booth 2602) is a Web-based, JDF-compliant estimating system which supports all available and emerging technologies in the graphic arts industry. This fully automated solution first calculates all possible production paths using machine capability information, and then chooses the most efficient path based on cost data. IQuote allows users to graphically see and modify the proposed solution, run simulations, send proposals, and create real production jobs—all in a flexible, secure, and controlled workflow environment.
IQuote allows estimators to produce consistent estimates, regardless of experience level, by automatically enforcing cost, pricing, and technical rules throughout the estimating process. IQuote acts as a knowledge base, making the expertise of the most experienced estimators available to everyone. It can be configured to work with technical processes across all sectors of our industry—offset, variable data, case-bound books, packaging, labels, super wide-format, and many more. IQuote keeps the complexity of the system where it belongs—in the configuration of the print company, rather than in the estimating process itself. This allows for a simple interface that is easy to learn and use.
