Sage 500 Estimating (formerly MAS 500)

Increase Profitability and Win More Business With Exceptionally Accurate Estimates

 
Do you know if a new part is going to make you money or cost you money? Do you lose business to your competitors because your estimates are too high? The Sage 500 ERP (formerly Sage ERP MAS 500) Estimating module provides detailed estimating capabilities to help you increase business while improving your bottom line.

Estimates provide more than an educated guess regarding total cost of production because they include materials, outside processing, and labor, as well as overhead rates and one-time charges for tooling and engineering.

Estimates can be converted to a customer quote or directly to a sales order with a simple mouseclick. Further, an estimate may be copied to or from an existing routing and bill of material. Estimates can even be created from existing work orders.

Enable your estimating department by providing flexible markup codes for up to five different quantities of parts. You can choose how to mark up materials, labor, outside processing, tooling, and other costs. Final estimates provide insightful production information, including total cost, cost per piece, total price, price per piece, and gross profit.

  • Accurately calculate costs and prices for new parts using inventory costs, work center rates, and other data
  • Convert estimates to a customer quote or directly to a sales order
  • Improve accuracy on new quotes by using actual material quantities, scrap yields, and actual costs from a similar job
  • Estimates and quotes can include multiple quantities of items, each with different markup codes
  • Assign dates to each estimate to accurately track start date, promised date, required date, order date, manufacturing release date, and expiration date
  • Final estimates accurately calculate valuable production information including total cost, cost per piece, total price, price per piece, and gross profit
  • Analyze and monitor Estimating data to gain more insights into estimating and quoting
