sigmanest quotingsoftwareClick image to enlargeSigmaTEK Systems has added its Business Systems Suite to its SigmaNEST Version 20 product portfolio.

This latest release of advanced CAD/CAM, Shop Floor Control, and Business Systems brings a full range of fabrication optimization and data management features inside one familiar user interface.

The version 20 user interface employs greatly improved navigation and a universal easy-reading display throughout all SigmaTEK products to increase user focus and stamina.

SigmaTEK’s new quoting tool, SigmaQUOTE, is available as both a freestanding application for the quoting department as well as an add-on module for SigmaNEST programmers. SigmaQUOTE uses the SigmaNEST nesting engine, part database, and costing parameters to deliver accurate quotes after a speedy import of part geometry. Full bi-directional integration with SigmaSUITE products offers greater flexibility for a real world production workflow.

Quote workspaces can be modified after job creation, and parts can be added, removed, and even re-nested without recreating or reimporting the quote, and then pushed directly into production work orders.

As the core of SigmaTEK business system products, SigmaMRP provides single-source job management throughout manufacturing, from quotation to delivery and invoicing. SigmaMRP integrates with both SigmaSUITE products and other business systems to administer critical business data—inventory, transactions, customers, suppliers, job status, cost, profitability—and now adds several key improvements.
