Costimator Improves Estimating Speed for Mattson/Witt Precision Products


MTI Systems Press Release

(West Springfield – July, 2012) - (West Springfield, MA) MTI Systems, Inc. has announced today that since implementing the company's Costimator cost estimating software, Mattson/Witt Precision Products, Inc. (Barrington, IL) has dramatically improved the consistency and speed of their cost-estimating process.

"Often times, we quoted similar parts to the same customer," said Kevin Graff, director of operations." When they see wild fluctuations in pricing, they tend to lose confidence. Occasionally, this put us in a position to have to defend pricing forcing us to review all parts again, thus wasting valuable time and resources."

"The final puzzle piece was finding a consistent platform for multiple users so everyone was singing from the same sheet of music" - Kevin Graff, Mattson/Witt Precision, Products Inc.

Mattson/Witt Precision Products, Inc., an innovator in the water treatment industry, pioneered the plastic brine valve and they are known for being the go-to company for plastic component solutions. They developed a strong reputation for their workmanship & service -- and wanted to ensure their quoting was more consistent. Costimator proved to be the answer.

"With Costimator we saw that it came filled with virtually every machine available with the manufacturers recommended feeds and speeds. Now, simple & complex parts are quoted systematically and quickly with a high degree of accuracy."
