Automatic Nesting Breaking Out of the Production Office (Aptia Solutions )

May 17, 2012 - Nottingham, UK  - Aptia Solutions (, the leader in automatic nesting software, announced today the immediate availability of QuoteFab, its new automatic nesting product to aid the calculation of accurate costs for quotation of sheet materials.

QuoteFab is a simple yet powerful costings calculator that all but eliminates labor intensive and error prone quotation tasks such as cleaning customer drawings, calculating number of pierces, and working out true material requirements. As it does not rely on databases or clunky back-end systems, QuoteFab is designed to be installed with absolutely minimal disruption to your business. QuoteFab is high impact, low maintenance software that is designed to play happily alongside your existing systems and procedures yielding long-lasting returns with a minimum of fuss.  

“We have designed QuoteFab for the sales agent rather than the production engineer which means customer facing staff can get the information they need quickly and without navigating the often complicated interfaces found in software for production machining.” said Glenn Whitwell, Managing Director of Aptia. 

“It’s all about providing the correct automatic nesting tools on the correct desktops.  All too often we hear of companies using complicated production nesting software for quoting purposes or, at very least, sending jobs to the production office simply to get an idea of the material required for their quote costing.  In both cases, production often gets delayed while the quoting work is carried out so neither of these scenarios produces a satisfactory outcome.” 

“We have learned that when nesting tools are easy to use, inexpensive and tailored to the specific task at hand, confidence in the software increases and business productivity does too.”
