Customer Success

Tool Shops

"I quote an average of $65 MILLION per year of tooling using DieEstimator. Without it, I would not be able to quote that volume of dies."

"It use to take us 4 hours to quote a die. With DieEstimator we have cut our time to about 30 minutes."

"DieEstimator gives us the detail we need to quote dies. We looked at other (more costly) solutions but they were hard to use and just not detailed enough for what we do."

"DieEstimator showed us how we could use our existing people to estimate dies without hiring a full time estimator. Thanks,"

"Our customers bring us on early in the sourcing process. I have to quote the same die multiple times before it becomes reality. DieEstimator lets me update my quotes quickly and track engineering changes."

Metal Stampers

"We no longer have to wait for tool shops to quote our projects.  We only get quotes when we are ready to purchase. With DieEstimator, we can quote tooling and production the same day."

"We build our own dies. As you might expect, tool shops are not eager to do our tool quoting for us. DieEstimator lets us price our dies and see what other shops would have quoted."

"Our die estimator retired leaving us with no way to quote dies. DieEstimator allowed us to capture his experience and continue without a hitch."

"We source dies domestically and offshore. With DieEstimator we can see what a die will cost from any region."

"We used to do only a few part types for a few customers. When our market changed we had to diversify but needed help with quoting a wider range of die types."

OEM and Tier 1

"I buy a lot of dies but do not have die design experience or time to use CAD software to quote dies. I find the quick estimate features extremely fast and easy to use and pretty accurate."

"As a part designer, I can now see what it will cost to tool my designs."

"The training we received from Tool Planners helped us better understand the quoting needs of our tooling suppliers better"
