ArifiQ launches new quoting option

The Swedish firm ArifiQ has announced a new quotation program, ArifiQ Entry. Essentially, it’s a slimmed-down version of ArifiQ Pro but without the order management and MIS capability.

It uses the same core engine as the Pro version to generate quotes and can be integrated with MIS, CRM and accounting systems. ArifiQ says that this new program is designed to handle complex custom print jobs rather than simply being driven by templates. It works with most print technologies, including digital, offset and wide format.

It’s charged at a flat monthly rate with no set-up fee, though the pricing is determined by the size of the company and the print equipment it uses. It allows for any number of users free of charge, with no long-term agreement other than a one-month cancellation period.

Eva Rosén, president and CMO of ArifiQ Development, explains: “Print service providers will give their sales reps arifiQ Entry so they can place orders while with their customers, rather than bringing back those laborious RFQs.”

The idea is that those sales reps will then use it to access their estimating server to generate the quote taking into account all the variables including printing presses, paper stock, and post-press machinery as well as hourly rates, discounts, and profit margins.

It also includes Campaign functionality, which can produce estimates on many print jobs at one time, complete with optimized imposition and substrate decisions.

There’s a plugin for Adobe InDesign, as well as an in-plant solution, arifiQ deQuote, which provides quotes via the “print” function on any conventional computer.

ArifiQ has also said that it is working with some web to print and storefront developers to add its capabilities to their products.
