MTI Systems Integrates Costimator JS With Exact JobBOSS

Integration of Costimator® JS and JobBOSS® will provide shop owners with more versatility and increased productivity

W. SPRINGFIELD, MA (May 3, 2006)

MTI Systems, the leading provider of innovative cost estimating software solutions for manufacturing, today announced that it has integrated its flagship product, Costimator JS with JobBOSS, an industry-leading shop management software for job shops. To enhance the integration and provide added customer value, MTI Systems for a limited time will also provide a free Costimator JS seat to JobBOSS users.

Costimator JS provides job shops with a fast, accurate, and consistent method to estimate cycle times and costs for quoting purposes, enabling them to bid with confidence and optimize their ability to win profitable contracts. JobBOSS, developed by Exact Software, is one of the most widely used shop management software solutions worldwide. The integration of these two leading software applications provides users with more versatility, increased productivity, and significant cost savings.

“Costimator JS seamlessly exports critical data, such as machine cycle times, labor costs, and material usage directly into JobBOSS,” said Mr. David LaJoie, VP of Sales for MTI Systems. “This functionality enables shops to quote jobs with a high degree of accuracy, precisely manage their material inventory and schedule shop floor activities. The integration of these two critical software applications eliminates the need for double data entry, reducing costly errors and labor expenses related to manual data entry.”

MTI Systems will provide further customer value through a free software offer, with an aggressive program to provide JobBOSS users a free seat of Costimator JS. The offer is available through July 31, 2006, is limited to one software seat per company and requires the purchase of training and support.

“Exact Software is excited to team up with MTI Systems on this project. We continue to be committed to finding third-party software solutions that bring real value to our customers,” said Steve Massey, general manager for Exact JobBOSS. “The integration of JobBOSS and Costimator JS will provide key benefits to our customers, including the ability to significantly improve the speed, accuracy and consistency of their cost estimating.”
