Job Shop Pricing is a complete system to understand your capacity and job costs so you can quote faster, win more work, while ensuring every job is profitable!

Existing estimating, costing, quoting, and pricing systems simply don’t work in a highly custom job shop environment. This is due to the high mix, low volume of work that most job shops find themselves working on.

In fact, many shops have many jobs that they consider to be unprofitable or not as profitable as they like, yet they do not have the ability to raise prices. Worse still, many job shops have tried extremely hard to reduce and cut costs, yet they are too often told that their pricing is too high and they must continue to reduce costs.

Sound familiar? The Job Shop Pricing System has been designed to solve these issues and help your shop quote faster, win more work, while ensuring every job is profitable.

We do this by combining the Theory of Constraints , Throughput Accounting, and advanced Sales & Marketing knowledge to guide your shop to profitability – despite price sensitive customers and competitive markets.

To get started, there’s only three easy steps you need to take:
