For races that you have to win right from the start

When running a project, a perfect start is often the decisive factor in whether you achieve success at the finish line. Nothing is more crucial during the quotation phase than correct costing as a solid basis for a profitable project. Especially in the case of continuously increasing product complexity and ever shorter throughput times.

Our quotation software EN4M™ calc was developed precisely along these preconditions. This performance solution is ideal for companies which place emphasis on engineering, complex product development, and customizing-to-order processes. Best of all, with increasing project complexity, EN4M™ calc feels more and more comfortable. Because hardly any other software can link broad data structures across various locations in such an intelligent way, and yet remains easy to use. EN4M™ calc sets you up in pole position.

With EN4M™ calc an enterprise can keep control over complex tender processes under increasing competitive pressure

To cope with growing pressure, companies need to transform into agile organizations, increase flexibility, and maximize customer satisfaction.

EN4M™ calc will help you to cope with this challenge and furthermore gain a competitive edge.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Costing with EN4M™ calc - core capability and setting the course for successful projects

Costing is a core area of expertise within a company and can already be decisive at an early phase on the subsequent success of a project. That’s why it’s so important to be able to rely on a capable tool like EN4M™ calc.

 

By using valuable knowledge templates and parallel collaboration between different divisions, EN4M™ calc not only reduces time and effort, but also significantly increases the speed of creating a costing. And it can achieve this even where employees are collaborating at different locations across the globe.

With the special top-down and bottom-up calculation of the costing values, in EN4M™ calc the costs can be assigned exactly to the respective payers and aggregated within the costing structure into the next planning level. Cost drivers and bottlenecks are detected early, well-founded decisions such as make or buy, change variant, etc. can be reliably made.

EN4M™ calc allows at any time a focused and role-based view on the costing of your services. This gives all stakeholders, especially management, the necessary transparency to make the right decisions in the shortest possible time frame.

With EN4M™ calc, you reduce throughput times and increase the quality of your costing calculations. From the beginning on this has a positive impact on customer satisfaction. On this basis the course is set for successful projects.
