iQuote® is an intelligent job estimating and planning solution that enables businesses to deliver faster, more accurate, and more consistent quotes. Built specifically for print and packaging industries, iQuote enables you to benefit from a highly intuitive, and visual approach to job estimating and planning. iQuote can help you:
- Reduce manual user errors and improve estimators’ accuracy to increase your estimate-to-win ratio.
- Integrate existing knowledge, standards, and best practices to enable a consistent user experience and seamlessly incorporate new products and services.
- Convert inefficient analog processes into digital workflows and discover cost-saving production efficiencies.
Before we implemented iQuote, if a customer wanted prices on several different quantities, we had to create separate quotes for each.
Ultimately, we want to enable our sales professionals to produce quotes in real time from the field, which will be valuable in helping us win more work. Companies that respond first to requests for quotes are often more likely to get the job. If sales people can do that on the spot while they are at the customer site or on the phone with the customer, it makes us that much more competitive.

EFI iQuote is intelligent software that allows users to specify the final product they need and automatically generate the most cost-effective production path for each item and quantity required. iQuote quickly determines the optimal path to profitability from thousands of possible combinations of substrates, layouts, machines, and processes.
iQuote captures your best practices, giving each estimator the ability to perform at the highest level, regardless of experience. The software protects the equity you have in your most experienced people, while also enforcing the business rules you’ve developed to make your estimates accurate, consistent, and profitable. iQuote engineers the job through an easy-to-read workflow diagram of each production step, which includes the required materials, equipment, time, and cost. With this approach, everyone understands the job better and you get the best engineering plan with the lowest cost and the highest return possible.
iQuote improves job planning, estimating, and quoting. It increases the profitability of each estimate with an automated process that dynamically engineers every job’s most cost-effective production path through your operations. It captures your best practices and business rules and centralizes your estimating processes into a smart estimating system.
iQuote’s detailed and centralized visualization of the entire job plan helps estimators, planners, sales teams, and production staff understand each job better–from one site to many, on-premises and/or in the cloud, or which MIS/ERP is in place.
